I Will Honour Christmas In My Heart

I will honour Christmas in my heart,
and try to keep it all the year.
I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future.
The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.
I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!

~ Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol



Christmas is my favorite Holiday and my favorite time of year!

I go all out decorating our small townhouse for all Holidays but especially Christmas!

Every room in our home has a different Christmas Theme and Color Scheme!!

I prove that you do not have to live in a large home to have several Trees, over 20 in all shapes and sizes!!

The majority of my Christmas decorations are placed in the same spot every year and I know that this is not what most Decorator's care for but it is like seeing old friends again when I decorate each year for Christmas.......

I do try to add a few new things and change up things a bit but for the most part, these decorations are part of my Christmas traditions and I will not change them until I can no longer decorate like I do......

This blog is dedicated to All Things Christmas!!

Country Sampler's Merry and Bright, September Rudolph Day!!

Happy Rudolph Day!!

It's the 25th of the month of September!!

Today, I am going to share a wonderful Christmas magazine that I know you will want to rush out and buy because I believe that it appeals to all decorating styles!!

Country Sampler's Merry and Bright, Christmas Special Edition 2015
Last year, I featured Country Sampler's Make It Merry,Christmas Special Edition 2014
Please click HERE for the post I did on that issue if interested......

I will let the photos of this year's edition do the talking.......
I LOVE these next few photos.......
Be still my heart!!
Makes me sad that I got rid of my green loveseat that I used to have in the Den several years ago!!
Well now........

Don't you just want to run out and buy this magazine!

Believe me that there is so much more that I did not share so I do encourage you to run out and buy it!!

It is so worth it!

I am NOT receiving any type of compensation from Country Sampler for showcasing their magazines on my blog.

See you next month for October 's Rudolph Day!!!

A Debbie-Dabble Christmas

    Dorene @ Seasonal Chspters

  5. Thankyou for sharing...you are such a generous heart.

    I LOVE the more cottagey rooms, especially ~ oh dear me, I wasn't going to think about Christmas yet, but its too hard, looking at these : D

    Do you join in with Organized Christmas. com (ceo Cynthia Ewer)
    I have done many times in the past, really like that site, but I nevervmanage to start Christmas organisation in August...that is a step too far for this 'last minute' lady!

  6. I just love the magazine, but is it only available in the US? I love Christmas and the pages you have shown are really greatx

  7. Thnak you very much for sharing this fairy magazine. It 's full of inspiring decors and projects...i love Christmas!

  8. Great reminder just how near the holidays are. I think they are coming much too fast. It could have something to do with my age. You no doubt have one of the fabulous homes anywhere.

  9. Well. I was NOT going to buy Sampler this year but I can see that I need to go get my copy RIGHT NOW!

  10. This is the best Christmas blog I have ever seen!! I love it so much! Your home looks amazing! I wish I could afford all of these decorations! I can't wait to see more!

  11. Hi Debbie,
    Just popping in to your pretty blog from Rooted in Thyme. Thank you for sharing all the Sampler photos. I haven't bought it in years, but I think I will buy this issue. I like the first Christmas tree in the barrel, I think it would look cute in my house.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  12. That magazine looks so good! I wish I could find it here in Oz. I'll just have to drool over your pictures!

    Thanks for sharing this post at the Sundays Down Under linky party!

    Best wishes,
    Natasha in Oz

  13. This magazine looks like it has some awesome ideas to decorate this Christmas! I love the village you pictured. It reminds me of my mother's growing up...(since then it has grown a lot)!
    Thank you for linking up to the Wake Up Wednesday link party! Hope to see you next week!
    Kate | The Organized Dream

  14. Wow, what a wealth of great decorating ideas. I love Christmas best of all the seasons and love the house all decked out. Will be revisiting and using some of theses ideas !!! Thanks for sharing.

  15. I love Christmas too! I used to have a gift shop and we had a year round Christmas year so I could have Christmas every day! Thank you for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop. We love having you join us! Hope to see you back next week!

  16. Debbie, I'm not sure why; but I have been thinking about my plans for Christmas decorating this year. I have already decided that I want to go with all my plaids in the kitchen for a change. So of course I loved the photo with the plaid tablecloth. Making scenes under cloches is one of my favorite things to do, so I loved the cover photo as well. And thirdly the fun ideas using candy made me smile. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  17. I have this magazine on the table by my chair right now, but have not allowed myself to look through it (thank you, Debbie, for making that so much harder now...lol) until I have soaked up every page and idea in the Country Sampler Autumn Decorating issue. As much as I enjoy every issue of this magazine, I treasure the Fall and Christmas issues the most!

  18. I have never seen a blog dedicated to Christmas before but this is totally amazing. I always wondered how long it takes for you to get everything up and the way you want it for decor in your home? To have a tree in every room is so cool. Thanks so much for sharing at #HomeMattersParty

  19. Once again Debbie, thanks so much for featuring our special Christmas issue! It's a thrill to see how much you enjoy it! And like you said, the issue is packed with so much more!

    Several people above have mentioned if this issue is available outside the US. You can purchase the issue through our website. Here is a link: https://www.samplermagazines.com/detail.html?code=CM65103&source=DD

    Hope everyone has a happy, healthy and fun-filled holiday!

    Susan Wagner, Editor

  20. I can't wait to decorate for Christmas!! Thanks for Sharing On My 2 favorite Things on Thursday, Hope to see you again this week!! Pinned!

  21. This is beautiful. Thanks. Christmas is near and the whole family is pretty excited about the Christmas and of course holidays. Can't wait for the eggnog and eat all kinds of foods. This year we're thinking about going green and using LED lights instead of the incandescent ones because LEDs consume about 90% less energy than that of incandescent lights. Christmas light companies these days know the importance of going green and have stocked their shelves with LEDs.

  22. LOL, Happy Rudolph day. Seriously, my friend and I just bought a large stuffed Rudolph at Walmart on Saturday. She is using him for a prize for the Halloween deocorations at work. Seemed sort of wiered walking around in winter wonderland in walmart, when the frost isn't on the Pumpkins yet.

    But you definitely have a holiday head's up, going here. Your trees are beautiful. I will have to reconsider, my measly 4 trees, lol.

    Thanks for the tour and I will check back!Sandi
