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 at Nelson Crest, The Downstairs, Christmas Home Tour 2015

Welcome to Christmas at Nelson Crest, The Downstairs.......

First, I want to Thank Laurie, over at My Husband Has Too Many Hobbies, and Megin, over at VMG206, for featuring my post,  Christmas in the Den, Part 2, Christmas Home Tour 2015,  from last week's Brag About It party!!
 Thanks so much, Laurie and Megin!

Please take some time to stop by and link up to this great party!!

In my previous post, I shared how Nelson Crest is decorated for Christmas on the Outside.....
 If you missed Christmas at Nelson Crest, The Outside, Please click HERE

Nelson Crest is named after the wonderful man who built her for me, Roy Nelson......
He made my childhood dream of owning a Victorian Doll House come true!!

Today, I am sharing the downstairs of Nelson Crest!!
It has been some time since I shared the inside of Nelson Crest.

We are going to start in the Parlor.....
You can see that Mr. Nelson, Roy, is relaxing in the Parlor reading the newspaper after a long day at work.....
Some close ups of the Parlor......
Tree # 18!!
I love these photos!!

I bought this battery operated Tree at Target 2 years ago!!

The Dining Room.......
Close ups......
The rugs were bought on Ebay...
I do not count this Tree because I don't consider it a decorated Tree......
 The Last Supper....
 This Tree was one that my parents had when I was a child.....
Maybe next year, I will decorate one to use here in the Dining Room of Nelson Crest......
And that is the Downstairs of Nelson Crest, decorated for Christmas!!
You may notice that this house in missing something......

A Kitchen!!

That is why I call it my Dream House, a perfect house in my eyes....

Because it has no kitchen and I HATE to cook!!!

I hope you will come back and visit again when I share Christmas at Nelson Crest, the Upstairs!!
Nelson Crest has a 2nd and 3rd floor....

And thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!

On Debbie-Dabble, I posted a Mini Christmas Home Tour of the Downstairs and Upstairs.

  1. Oh Debbie. That was a marvelous tour. How I LOVED it, being a dollhouse and miniatures lover myself. Oh, just loved all the tiny details. Perfect! You really did an outstanding job.

    You could write and illustrate entire books on your "big" house as well as Nelson' Crest. Bet they'd sell like hotcakes!

    Hope you have a splendid rest of the week and a good new year of life. Susan

  2. Now that would be a fun activity at Christmas!!!Great detail.

  3. Debbie, I would squint my eyes and pretend I lived there in those rooms. I love the wonderful things in each room. Have you ever visited Claudia at "mockingbird hill cottage"? She has a doll house, it's so sweet. it's not Victorian like yours , so it's not as big. Please look her up. I think she'd love seeing this. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  4. I so want to visit your Nelson Crest, all the details, all the handsome furniture and the Victorian look.

  5. Such sweet tiny details you have in here. The nativity set, the artwork, the lace...and Mr. Nelson looks so at home reading his paper. Adorable, Debbie, thanks for the tour!, I'm trying to catch up too, Sandi

  6. Debbie, this must be a full time hobby. Thank you for sharing this charming home and the way you have decorated it for the holidays. Special!
    Happy New Year!

  7. Wow it just amazes me the wonderful attention to detail in these rooms and it looks so neat lit up too, so special!

  8. Hi Debbie, You know I am a big fan of your Nelson Crest! We have a lot of the same pieces too! You have some wonderful rugs and the tree looks so cute all lit up! I haven't been spending too much time on my dollhouse, I barely even got it decorated for Christmas! And now it's time to take it down again.
    Wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year!

  9. Every single detail is amazing! The rooms are so romantic and rich of pretty things. My favourite is the cake...it looks so yummy! Happy new year !!!

  10. If I am ever shrunk - I want to live at Nelson Crest.

  11. Deb, what a great story. How nice that Mr. Nelson made the doll house for you. You certainly have some beautiful pieces. Wish I had some as pretty in my real house! You have so much fun with all your projects. You go girl, it will keep you young..Happy New Year..xo Judy

  12. Hello Debbie, I have been expecting to get here for your tour of Nelson Crest and I finally have my decorations down and the house back to normal. At this point it was easier to sit down and catch up reading blogs.
    The details of your dollhouse are just amazing. I love the lace curtains in the living room! Do you add something new every year? Thanks so much for sharing it with us.
    Happy New Year to you & your family :)

  13. A specially house, beautifully done!
    Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!

  14. I love that the fun is outside too #MarvMondays

  15. Wow, Nelson Crest is wonderful! Truly enchanting, Debbie! I love that you named it after the talented artist who built it.

  16. Loving the detail of Christmas at Nelson Crest! I am tuning out the world and just enjoying my Christmas decorations now that all the hustle and bustle is over. We finally have some cold weather so it is feeling more like Christmas to me in January than it did in December.

  17. It's awesome that as ladies we can appreciate doll houses at any age. I think playing may even be more fun! Every detail is gorgeous! Thank you for sharing with us at Merry Monday. Happy 2016!

  18. Debbie you out did yourself this year. The house looks beautiful.

    Thanks so much for sharing on Simple Saturdays.
