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!!

Christmas in the Guest Room, Part 2, Christmas Home Tour 2015

Welcome to Part 2 of Christmas in the Guest Room, Christmas Home Tour!!
In Part 1 , I shared Tree #6..........
And spoke about my childhood memories of Plasticville......
If you missed that post, please click HERE !!

Today, in my final post on how the upstairs in our home is decorated, I am sharing my "faux" Fire Place in the Guest Room.......

 I decorated the "mantle" of my "faux" fireplace to match the larger Tree in the room......
 The bright colored wall paper border is what lead me to choose bright multi colored ornaments for this room......

  3 years ago, I bought a bunch of ornaments and other decorations after Christmas in a bright multi-colored theme!!  Also all the decorations for this tree were 75% off or bought at Yard Sales, Flea Markets and Estate Sales!!
This is Tree # 7..........
Again, I have made a Bow of several different types of ribbon  to top the Tree.......
Along with a vintage Tree Topper that you can see reflected in the mirror!!

 Small bright colored ball ornaments and icicles in bright pink adorn this Tree......
I bought the Tree in J.C. Penney's several years ago and it is battery operated.....

Now to the top of the "Mantle"........
I decorated it with the thought of a "Snow Village"
 I used cake plates for elevation at each end.........
 One of a few snowmen!!
And Putz Houses!!

 I have added some vintage Shiny Brite ornaments to the garland in addition to ornaments I bought on Clearance after Christmas a few years ago........
 I also added 2 vintage Tree Toppers and a Bow in the center......

 It is quite colorful, wouldn't you say????

And the Teddy Bears are having a Christmas Tea!!
In the "hearth" area......
A pretty Angel........
I also made a wreath for the door.......
Again, following the color theme of the room........
And that concludes the Tour of the upstairs decorated for Christmas.......

There are 7 decorated Trees upstairs!!

Next up on the Tour, we are moving downstairs !!!!!

How many Trees are downstairs?????

What is the total Decorated Trees for this year you ask????

Well, the decorating is finished and the final number is in!!

There are 12 decorated Trees downstairs!!!!!!

Add those to the 7 Trees upstairs and that means.......

19 Decorated Trees Total!!!!!

In all shapes and sizes with the smallest being 3 decorated Trees in Nelson Crest , my Victorian Doll House!!

Next up on the Tour is the Den, which I have not decorated for Christmas in 2 years......
  I have had a really good time decorating this room!!

Click HERE to see Christmas in the Den, Part 1!
