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 Powder Room, Christmas Home Tour 2015

Welcome to Christmas in the Powder Room.

For several years now, I have decorated the Powder Room with Snow Buddies and in a Blue , White and Silver color theme.

This year is no different but I did add a few new things....

This is the wreath that I made for the door......
 I added a bit more silver florals to it this year.....
Above the door way......
An Angel rests on the door frame....
Immediately to the left when you walk into the Powder Room......
 I turned the lights off because there was too much glare but please remember that since I live in a townhouse, there are no windows in this room which is in the center of the house.......
Snow Buddies, Silver Candlesticks and a white crocheted Tree sit on a shelf.....
This is how it looks with the lights on.....

Another angel hangs from the ceiling and a slate hangs under the shelf...
   A lot of the decorations in this room stay up all Winter long....
I like the reflection of the slate in the medicine cabinet mirror!!
 I am able to use the top of the medicine cabinet for display.....
 Greenery, silver and white Trees.......
And Snow Buddies!!
  And with the lights on....
   Next to the Medicine Cabinet.....
   I replaced the pictures in these frames with Christmas cards....
 Over the toilet is a shelf unit......
 On the side of it......
Top shelf.....

The bottom shelf pays homage to Joe's favorite AHL and NHL Hockey Teams.......

The Wilkes Barre-Scranton Penguins and the Pittsburgh Penguins!!
The Quote on the Snow Buddy figure says " Penguin Hockey"!!
And there are a few more penguins on this shelf!!

Below the shelf ......
You may remember that this is one of 3 similar ornaments that I bought at Michaels this year.....
I bought 2 of these white crocheted Trees several years ago and I added silver trim along with 2 Snow Buddy pins!!
In the corner.....
Tree #10!!
Above the Tree.......
I love using Bows as Toppers for Trees and I made this bow out of 2 different types of ribbons.....
I have tucked white Buffalo Snow into the Tree to look like snow along with some glittered greenery.....

You may have noticed that the Tree is wired right into the top shelf of the etagere!!
It is also wired to the tole tray behind it so it does not fall over as the Snow Buddy ornaments are heavy.......
There are also blue berries tucked into the Tree , along with silver ornaments, icicles and snowflakes.....
It is lit with one set of blue and one set of cool white battery operated LED lights.....
The sweater like Tree Skirt was bought at Target last year for 70% off after Christmas!!
More Snow Buddies and an ornament under the Tree......

On the shelf under the Tree is a Snow Village that I also bought at Target, only it was several years ago......
I like to use ornaments in other ways than hanging on a Tree as you can see the blue house which is an ornament!
Next to the etagere.......
Even though I sound like a broken record, this Church is also from Target a few years ago!!
Santa ornaments hang from the sides....
I decided to display the blue beaded garland that I no longer use on the Tree, here on the bottom shelf with some ornaments......
Almost looks like water and ice......
Can you tell I like to use shelves????
Old Home Interiors Shelves that I spray painted black are on each side......
On each shelf is a Santa......
Hanging from the shelf are a few ornaments including a Vintage Shiny Brite ones.....
Greenery and a bow on each sconce below each shelf.......
This picture is an old Home and Garden Party one.......
I bought these silver mercury glass owls last year on Clearance after Christmas at J.C. Penney's and I have used them in a Winter display last season, for Halloween in the Dining Room and now in the Powder Room......
On the shelves......
Top shelf......
 The Snow Buddy on the left says " Remodeling" and the one on the right says, " Charge!"
The candles are battery operated emergency candles that I bought at The Dollar Tree and have a blue light when lit!!

On this shelf, the Snow Buddy to the far left reminds me of my Mom who used to always have a bucket of "Ammonia Water" to clean with.
Next to that one is one that says" Shopping", another that says " Tea Party" and the one on the far right with his tool belt on reminds me of my Dad who was a Carpenter by trade!!

All the Snow Buddies on this shelf have special meaning to me.......
Q Tips and Cotton Balls are kept in the silver sugar bowl and creamer.....
And above the closet where the washer and dryer is a swag that I made.......
And that is how the Powder Room looks this year........
Next up on our Christmas Home Tour is the Kitchen......
And Tree # 11!!

  1. WOW Debbi!!! You are just amazing! I haven't even opened the Christmas decoration box yet and you are already in full swing! Everything looks so beautiful. I love the wreath you made and that lovely glittery picture of Santa is one of my favorites. I hope you are doing well and taking good care of yourself. Sending much love your way!

  2. You are incredible! Also this room looks fairy. I really love your lightblue decors.You always make me dream!

  3. Simply beautiful! I love all of the blue and white colors! Have a beautiful week, Lynn

  4. It looks like a Winter Wonder Land in the powder room, Debbie! That little cloche ornament with the tiny scene is my favorite thing in the post!

  5. Love the contrast between the icy blue theme and cosy red theme as you scroll through the pics, the amount of work (well, I know you enjoy it,so its play, really!) is just jaw-dropping! I'll let you into a dreadful secret...I have not put one decoration up yet!! : o But we are doing all of it at the week end, I rather like to keep it later then feels so very Christmassy.

  6. Oh my this is amazing, it is so pretty in there I would feel like I shouldn't use the room for what is intended :) Wow you have quite the snow buddy collection, my mother in law has bought me a couple over the years since I collect snowmen! Love those crocheted trees they are so pretty, and love your little village display under the tree. I never thought of displaying things above my medicine cabinet that is so pretty, the whole room is just lovely!

  7. Blues are beautiful and dreamy. Sweet vignettes. So very beautiful are your decorations.

  8. This is so cute, Debbie. I like the blue tones of the wreath and your snowbuddies are really adorable. I look forward to seeing the kitchen! Thanks for sharing.

    Merry Christmas,

  9. I just stopped over to see your recent post!! 19 TREES!! WOW-just WOW! They are all so gorgeous, Debbie! Your entire home looks so festive and cheerful! You're truly one AMAZING lady!

  10. Your powder room is looking so festive and so pretty with all your blue treasures. Thanks, Deb for sharing your Christmas tour at VIParty.

  11. All the little details in this room are just amazing! The blue & silver theme is so calming. Very Nice :)

  12. I think I like the poweder room the best so far. The silver and snow/men work so well with the black....great job, But I still want to see the barn where you store all this stuff...Lol. Merry Christmas, Sandi---and I finished the Barbie house...but Ken is slacking off on the Christmas decorations!

  13. Lots of pretty things in there....I'd be afraid to use the bathroom...hahha

  14. It's fun to have a some winter d├ęcor to leave up after Christmas. This winter wonderland will continue to warm hearts for a little while longer! Thanks for sharing it with SYC.
