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 Living Room, Part 1, Christmas Home Tour 2015

Welcome to Christmas in the Living Room!!

We will start over here to the right of the front door with a marble topped plant stand........
 I have flameless candles on a timer in the large candle holder
 And apothecary jar beneath.....
   The wall to the left when you walk in the front door.....
Joe's Grandmother's Hutch...
On the left side of the Hutch.....
There are battery operated LED branches in this arrangement......
The top of the Hutch.....
New this year are the gold glittered Led Trees that I bought on Clearance last year at Kohls.
I added some gold branches and candle ornaments to this swag.........
On the other side of the hutch......
The garland above the antique mirror has 2 sets of lights on it ......
Nativity Sets and Angels are displayed inside of the Hutch......
Looking upstairs......
Old World Santa's on the steps......

The little Skater Girl was mine as a child.....

Tree #15
This Tree is decorated with vintage Shiny Brite ornaments bought at yard sales and flea markets.......
I have a clear beaded wire garland wrapped around the Tree.....
The lights on this Tree are frosted white ball Led lights....
All the ornaments are in shades of red, gold and green , which is the color theme for the Living Room Christmas decorations.......
The Tree sits on a Victorian style chair.......
Bearington Bears and a flameless candle surround the bottom of the Tree.......

Underneath the chair is a Santa head in a vintage boot and a rocking horse......
 Looking back towards the Hutch.....
The top of the Curio
The inside of the Curio is decorated with Angels and a collection of Crystal......
I have decorated the inside with ornaments and gold snowflakes......
2 Angels on the side of the Curio......
Looking toward the Dining Room......
On the soffit above the entrance to the Dining Room.....
The vintage looking Stereo System that I bought last year after Christmas on Clearance......
Joe bought the lamp at J. C. Penney's......
2 Christmas Tea Cups.....
This piece of furniture was bought at an Antique Co -Op....
I can display quite a bit on it!!
A Lenox house that was gifted to me....
Those are vintage bottle brush trees bought at an Estate Sale.....
