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!!

 Please click HERE

Today, we will start where we last left off.......

On top of the computer armoire......
  A display of Santa's in burgundy.......
This book lights up and plays music.....
 A wreath that  I made.....
Next to the computer armoire, is a small table.....
  An arrangement of blue and burgundy poinsettias in a vintage pitcher....
Another framed Thomas Kinkade Christmas card.....
My Victorian doll house , Nelson Crest, is all decked out for Christmas.......
 Trees # 17, 18, and 19 are in the doll house.......
 I will be sharing both the inside and outside of Nelson Crest in another post.....

Santa heads surround the photo of the wonderful man who built my doll house.......
 I bought the snow lady at a craft fair.......
 Looking toward the china cupboard........
 On top of the china cupboard that a neighbor gave to me.......
  A few burgundy angels......
 I bought the wooden church on Clearance after Christmas in Burlington many years ago.....
The angel with the Winter scene is new this year and she lights up!!
And of course, I have decorated the china cupboard........
First let's look at Tree #20
It is a small Victorian style feather Tree.......
I have decorated it with vintage looking children ornaments......
 And a few Caroler ornaments......
  And this year, I was able to light it using the battery operated fairy lights.....
 I will be doing a future post on how all my decorations look in the evening all lit up.....
Inside the china cupboard......
The first shelf......
The middle shelf.......
  The bottom shelf.......
  A wreath hangs on the door.....
I stacked vintage suitcases underneath the china cupboard......
The houses  on the suitcases were bought at Ollie's several years ago and were only $2.99 each!!!
The deer in the lighted dome was bought this year in Big Lot's.....
A few vintage deer.......
This putz house was bought this year at Penney's......
I love the lit Christmas Tree inside of it!!
I added the Trees around it using E600 glue.......

2 Bearington Bears are over on the left side.........
The plate was 99 cents in Salvation Army......
Around the side of the china cupboard where the door way to the Kitchen is.......
2 snowmen, which were 25 cents each at a flea market, sit on top of this corner shelf.....
Another arrangement that I did on a vintage McCoy vase.....
And that completes my Tour of the Den except for Nelson Crest.......
In my next post, I will be showing you the Powder Room.......
  And the final Tree......
Tree #21!!

 So I hope you will come by and visit  again!!

I still have a few more Christmas posts to share including a tour of my favorite store Country Folks.....

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