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!!

Sitting Room Christmas "Fire Place", Christmas Home Tour 2016

In this post, I will be sharing how I decorated my Faux Fireplace in the Sitting Room........

In my previous post, I showed you how I decorated the 6 foot white Tree in this room.......
And I also shared some Christmas vignettes in this room......
If you missed that post, please click HERE........

When I turned this room into a Sitting Room, I painted all the furniture white......

My faux fire place looked like this last year for Christmas......
This is how it looked after I painted it and added some wood embellishments.......
And this is how it looks decorated for Christmas this year........
What a difference a little paint makes.........

Let's take a closer look at the "mantel".........
In the center of the "mantel" is a small white Tree..........
I bought this Tree in Penney's a few years ago..........
This is Tree #8..........
I decorated it with ornaments in the same bright colors as the larger Tree........
Deep Pink, green and aqua......
It is topped with a bow made from 2 different ribbons in the same colors.......
And a vintage glass topper.........
On the "mantel", I set up a Snow Village............
The left side..........
I used a cake plate for some elevation........
The large tree was bought at Penney's several years ago and the aqua bottle brush tree was bought at Target a few weeks ago........
The 2 large churches were bought at Target a few years ago for 75% off..........$5.00 each!!!!
The snow men were bought at Boscov's a few years ago........
Some vintage putz houses........
The right side......
I hung a white garland........
And decorated it with ornaments in the same bright colors.........
And some vintage glass ornaments......
A deep pink garland.......
A bow in the center.......
A Santa Head hangs in the center......
2 large deep pink ornaments in each side.......
I also decorated a bit in the "firebox"..........
The larger Tree is reflected in the mirror in the "firebox".....
To the left is a lamp and a pair of ice skates.........
In the center is Tree #9..........
It is decorated with 2 different types of garland, a vintage glass topper and a set of battery operated Fairy Lights............
On the right side is an angel.......
On the "hearth".......
 My 2 son's Cabbage Patch dolls sit on each side........
 Mr. and Mrs. Bear are sitting and having a Christmas Tea Party......
On the door is a wreath that I made........
I will be doing an Evening Tour closer to Christmas but here is a sneak peak .........
And that completes my Tour of the Upstairs of our home ........

In my next post, we will be going downstairs and I will be showing you how I decorated 2 Trees in the Living Room........

Tree #10........
 and my Christmas Village.........
 And Tree #11 .......
So I hope you will come by and visit  again!!

  1. Always magical, fairy ornaments and romantic atmosphere. You inspire me a lot
    Hugs Alessandra

  2. This is magic indeed, Debbie. You must have worked so hard.

  3. I do like the fireplace white, it let's you see everything on and around it better I think. like how you have decorated the garland and with the wreath to match :) The tree and candle in the fireplace is a neat idea too. I also love the way your sconces are framed to, so cool!

  4. The fireplace looks wonderful in white. It stand out more. Looking at the pretty white tree I cannot figure out how you got your Christmas bulbs lined up so symmetrically. That really makes the tree POP.

    The effort you put into you home really shows Debbie. Spectacular one of a kind.

    Thank you for sharing it. Merry Christmas to you.

  5. Wonderland for sure. Love the bears tea party. I need to take some pictures of my Christmas stuff I finally got up. You put me to shame. I love looking at all of your pretties.

  6. Pinks, purples, turquoise colours (and the rest) always look amazing together don't the Debbie. Beautiful decorations. Thanks so much for linking up.

  7. I love the garland on your mantel! So colorful and festive! Thanks for sharing all of your amazing decorations with us at Merry Monday this week!

  8. Your house is like a museum! :)

    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!
