I have many Christmas books including the entire series called The Spirit of Christmas by Leisure Arts.
This series ran from 1987 to 2003 with a new book published every year.
I bought mine on Ebay.
I did share these books on this blog back in 2012 but I have decided to share them again because I LOVE them and I think that even though they are older, you can find inspiration in them!!
I do apologize for the photos because they are from 2012 and were taken with a different camera than I have now but I did not feel like taking the photos over again!!
Each book is divided into 3 sections:
The Sights of Christmas- Decorations
The Sharing of Christmas- Gifts
The Tastes of Christmas- Recipes
These books feature everything you can make by yourself from Decorations to Gifts to Recipes for Cookies, Brunches, Parties and Dinners!!
I am going to be sharing the decorating ideas from these books and in this post, you will be amazed at all the Christmas Eye Candy!!!!
Spirit of Christmas Book 9 1995
Next Wednesday, I will be sharing Books 13-17!!
I hope you will come by and visit again!!

I always love a peek into your collection of fabulous Christmas books. Gosh, it will be here before we know it. Thanks for sharing with SYC.ReplyDelete
It's time to start seeking a little inspiration. I like to start thinking about it when it's 100 here in Texas.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for joining Thoughts of Home on Thursday this week. We are happy to have you. Pinning.

Thank you for sharing such amazing photos! They are so inspiring!ReplyDelete
I have some of the Leisure Arts books and need to dig them out - trying to
downsize now that we are retiring.
I always love Christmas in July and now you have made me love it more!
All the best to you, Mimi
Debbie, I adore books like this--thanks for sharing @Vintage Charm!ReplyDelete
It'll be Christmas before you know it!ReplyDelete
Now you've done it. You will be even busier with all these great ideas.ReplyDelete
It is entirely possible that I have some of those books in my collection. I enjoy sitting down and 'looking at' my Christmas inspiration books. So many beautiful ideas. Thanks for sharing with us at Merry Monday. Love your Christmas blog.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing at Home Sweet Home!ReplyDelete
Debbie, I could sit here for a long, long time looking at all these pictures! So many beautiful trees and decorations. Couldn't even begin to decide which one would be a favorite. It's wonderful to have you linking up with us for Christmas in July and also at Brag About It! Thanks for sharing all this inspiration!ReplyDelete
What a neat book! I loved seeing the last series on it and I love this one! :)ReplyDelete
