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!!

In my last post, I showed you the 2 Trees and my Village in the Living Room.......
 Please click HERE if you missed that post......

Today I want to show you the foyer and the corner by the stairs in our Living Room........

As I mentioned in my previous post, I have decorated the Living Room in a Victorian theme using the traditional Christmas colors of red, green and gold.........

On the right side of the front door when you enter is a marble topped stand.......
 To the left is Joe's Great Grandmother's Hutch......
 On the left of the hutch.....
 I always put a cane by the front door, as nod to the end of the movie "Miracle on 42nd Street " when Chris leaves his cane in the house that Susie Walker wished for...........
 There is a set of LED lighted branches in this brass can.....
  I have Nativity sets and angels displayed inside the hutch......
 But on top of the hutch, are some Christmas Carolers......
 These Carolers were bought at The Christmas Tree Shop several years ago.....
Gold glitter LED lighted trees on each end.....
A swag that I made in the middle.....
 As I mentioned before, Nativities and angels are displayed inside the hutch......
 On the first shelf  inside the hutch is a larger Nativity Set......
Angels are displayed on the 2nd shelf.......
I just bought the lighted Nativity Box in Penney's for 70% off.....
A smaller Nativity set is displayed on the bottom shelf.....
Hanging from the knobs of the drawer on the hutch are 2 Christmas Tussie Mussies that I made......
On the right side of the Hutch......
Looking up the stairs.......
Santa's, a sled and a pair of child's skates on the stairs.......
 Over in the corner.......
 Looking down the hallway to the Kitchen.......
 A swag that I made......
On the marble topped cherub table....
A gold glittered bottle brush tree, a Santa and a snow globe......
One of 2 Trees in the Living Room........
It is decorated with vintage ornaments.......
2 Bearington Bears sit on the chair.......
Underneath the chair........
The Curio.......
Another Tussie Mussie hangs in the corner.......
The swag on top of the curio with a few candle ornaments ......
A Santa head and a pretty Christmas scene plaque to the side......
More Angels and some crystal are displayed in the Curio.....
The bottom half of the curio.......
In my next post, I will be sharing the how I decorated the rest of the Living Room.......
So I hope you will come by and visit  again!!

  1. I cannot even imagine what it took for you to decorate. In comparison to your house, my decor is sparse yet it too me 2 weeks to get it right.

    You have so many wonderful Christmas treasures and I know with your love of the season it must be wonderful to look around the house and spot favorites.

    Happy Christmas

  2. I so want to come to your home and walk around and touch and feel everything! Love it, love it, love it! Girl, you have so much energy. Send me some of it will you? Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. Wow. I love it. I think the stairs are my favorite! The new link is up at Count Down To Christmas.
    There's a surprise there. (insert smile)
    See you at the party!

  4. Beautiful gold accenting all around and I totally love the nativities all in the hutch, you have some gorgeous sets of them, your collection of angels is lovely too, my mantle is a collection of angles with a small nativity in the center :)

  5. You never stop to amaze me with your fairy decors!
    Hugs Alessandra

  6. Fun and festive! Thank you for sharing @Vintage Charm!

  7. Hi Debbie, thanks for the shout out! Love stopping by your blog and seeing all your Christmas decorations. Not long now. Thanks for sharing at Creative Mondays.

  8. So pretty!

    I would love for you to share this with my Facebook Group for recipes, crafts, tips, and tricks: https://www.facebook.com/groups/pluckyrecipescraftstips/

    Thanks for joining Cooking and Crafting with J & J!

  9. Wow Debbie, that's a lot of Christmas decorations and they're all so, so pretty. I love how you left the cane at the door. Miracle on 34th Street is one of my favorite movies. I loved the scene where the mailmen dump the entire contents of all those mailbags to prove that Kris was Santa Claus. It's a classic

  10. Thanks for linking up to Monday Social. You have the most amazing collections. The Nativities are gorgeous. Your village is pretty cute too.
