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!

Sitting Room Christmas Tree and Vignettes, Chirstmas Home Tour, 2016

In my last 2 posts, we went outside to take a look at how I decorated the front porch....

Today, I am sharing one of 3 Trees in my "New" Sitting Room and a few Christmas vignettes.....

Please take some time to stop by and link u to these great parties!!
Over the Summer, I changed the Guest Room into a Sitting Room by getting rid of the single bed and replacing it with a new swivel rocker/recliner!!

I also painted all the furniture white..........

The 6 foot white Tree, which once stood over by the window, is now in this corner......
 A wash stand is to the left of the Tree.......
  It also got a new coat of white pain in the Summer......
This Tree is decorated using bright colors like purple, aqua, green and deep pink........
This is Tree #7
The "window" mirror reflects the Tree and the rest of the room nicely....
This Tree was decorated as my Patriotic Tree in the Living Room during the Summer.....
When I moved it here to the Sitting Room, I realized that most of the lights that were attached to the Tree were out.

This is one reason why I HATE Pre Lit Trees because once the lights don't work, you have to cut all those lights off .

And I always have had to add more lights to my Trees anyway to get them lit to my liking.

This was one of 4 trees that I had to take off the pre lit lights from this Season!! UGH!!

I topped this Tree with a bow made from 3 different type of bright colored ribbons........
And a matching vintage like Topper that I bought several years ago in Target after Christmas.....
There are also some vintage glass ornaments on this Tree.....
And some sentimental ones like both my son's Baby's 1st Christmas ornaments.....
And some cute figure ornaments that were bought at Michaels over the years......
Even a few vintage putz houses........
I also used 3 different colors of beaded garland........green, aqua and deep pink....
Underneath the Tree, is a Christmas Fairy Village.....
If you missed the post on how I changed my Fairy Garden houses into Christmas Houses, please click HERE......
I did buy Christmas Fairies and Elves for the village in Big Lot's this year.....
Now, when I sit in my new recliner......
 I can enjoy this brightly decorated Tree!!
I am going to do an Evening Tour showing the whole house all lit up at night but I wanted to give you a sneak peak of this Tree.....
I just love it!!
To the right of the Tree, is a Tea Cup Shelf.........
And underneath that shelf is a little table........
I placed a lighted angel on top of the table.......
Next to the table on the bistro chair is a Santa Head......
With a basket of pink poinsettias and a white putz house on the floor beneath it......
Over on the bookcases.......
On top of this bookcase that my Dad made are a vintage pieces of Plasticville.......
These remind me of how my Dad decorated the platform under my childhood Tree....
The chalk people figures were my mother's as a child and she would be 97 years old if she was alive.....
The barn and some of the animals actually did belong to my parent's and I was able to play with them as a child before the Tree was decorated.....
The blue and white cottage also belonged to my parent's......
The other pieces were bought at a Flea Market......
On the smaller bookcase, is a small ceramic Tree......
This was given to me by a neighbor.........
I chose to display it in this room because of the bright colored lights......
I am glad that I can sit and enjoy this room decorated for Christmas this year because of the addition of a recliner and the removal of the bed.........
In my next post, I will be sharing how I decorated my newly painted faux fire place......
I think the decorations look so much better on it now that it is painted white......
I will also be showing you 2 more Trees , making the count 9 Trees that are decorated upstairs.......

( There are 11 decorated Trees downstairs)

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

  1. Your faux fireplace is just gorgeous this year Debbie! I love the new white color and your garland is so pretty. We are taking all the wedding decorations down to the church tomorro afternoon and will have everything decorated in time for the ceremony Friday evening. hugs...

  2. Everything is just beautiful especially the white tree. I love everything about it, the ornaments, bow and the vintage topper. It reminds me of the trees I grew up with. I agree with you about those pre lit trees and the lights going out but I hate dealing with the lights anyway. Merry Christmas season to you.

  3. Such a pretty room. I love your little village. We added our vintage train under tonight.
    Well the grandson did. He loved crawling around under the tree!
    I always love visiting! Have a good week.

  4. the ornaments sure do pop against that white tree don't they and neat to have the beads for the garland around it. Love your fairy village underneath, I saw in Michael's store the other day they have a whole fairy Christmas section and I thought of you when I saw it :) You have created a lovely sitting room

  5. Love your white tree! The ornaments look so beautiful against those pretty branches. Your tree is so full and fabulous!

  6. Gorgeous ornaments! The white tree and the pretty village are my favourite
    Hugs Alessandra

  12. Debbie your home looks so festive and inviting! I look forward to your Christmas d├ęcor every year...it so makes me smile. Those Chalk people are so adorable, I don't think I have ever seen any before. I opted for a white Christmas tree this year with the lodge theme. Happy Holidays to you and Joe Lisa@ Sweet Tea N' Salty Air
