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!

An Evening Tour of Our Home, Christmas, Home Tour, 2017

   Welcome to my Christmas Blog, A Debbie-Dabble Christmas!!

I have been posting my annual Christmas Home Tour, sharing each room in our townhouse decorated for Christmas...

All of these posts are on my side bar if you missed them!!

Today, I will be sharing an Evening Christmas Tour of our house.......

But first, I want to Thank the Hosts of the Snickerdoodle Party for choosing 7 of my Christmas posts to be among their Decking the Halls 2017 Features.......
Thanks so much to:
Beverly and Gloria over at Across the Boulevard
Laurie over at My Husband Has Too Many Hobbies
Sharon over at The Blue Willow House
Donna over at Two Chicks and a Mom

I also want to Thank Bev, over at Eclectic Red Barn, for featuring my post,  Christmas in the Kitchen, Christmas Home Tour, 2017, from last week's Thursday Favorite Things Party!!!
 Thanks so much, Bev!!

Please stop by and link up to these great parties!!!!

I haven't posted in a few days because I took a much needed break!!!

I worked 3 days in a row after Christmas then we celebrated our oldest son's Birthday, the following day I hosted an Open House for a few of our neighbors and today we just finished up a wonderful Lobster ( and shrimp, scallops, fries and cole slaw) dinner for New Year's Eve with our family.....

I have finally found some time to do a post........

I have to admit that I did not get to take photos of the outside of our house in the evening because it has been so cold here and I did not feel like going out in single digit temps to get a few pictures......

I am going to let the photos do the talking as I try to stay awake, waiting for the ball to drop on New Year's Eve.......

The Living Room.......
The Dining Room........
 The Kitchen.......
 The Den......
  The Sitting Room.......
The Craft Room......
The Master Bedroom.....
Well, there you have it......

The last post in my series Christmas Home Tour, 2017........

It has been a wonderfully busy Holiday season for us, filled with goof friends and family!!!

We feel very blessed!!

Tomorrow, New Year's Day, we will be closing out the 2017 Holiday Season with our traditional New Year's Day dinner of lasagna.........

and then I will lay down for a bit because I do have to go into work at 11pm.....

I wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year!!!

I will soon be posting what I bought on Clearance after Christmas and my One Little Word for 2018!!!

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

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

  1. Wow! It must take you a long time to get the whole house decorated like that. How wonderfully festive!

  2. So pretty. Wishing you the best New Year! Betsy

  3. Aren't Christmas lights so magical?! I admire all your decor. My favorite is your sitting room mantel. So dreamy!
    :) gwingal

  4. Wow, even more romantic in the evening light. Happy New Year!

  5. I love your home in the evening....would love to see it in person sometime! Still fighting this stupid cold....may just take it easy today! hugs....

  6. Holy Karoly, Deb! Where to begin. I tell you, talk about sensory overload! If your photos were food, I'd weigh about 600 pounds right now, wowsers! My favorites (absolute favorites out of many) - the first photo at the top of this post - that is just spectacular! Then, the white mantle/fireplace and how that is decorated - it really rang my chimes. And in your craft room - the window scenario decorated with beads and pearls with the little white tree draped in beads, be still my heart! Back to the white mantle/fireplace -- I had to look several times at the little dog! He or she looks so very real and SOOOO precious! Those three vignettes, especially, spoke to me. Just beautiful, Deb. Beautiful.

  7. What a beautiful Christmas setup Debbie, I love how everything is all lit up and sparkling! Thank you for sharing on Merry Monday! Hope to see ya next week!

  8. I bet people love walking into your Christmas home! Its so festive and alive! I swear I could smell cinnamon and pine from your photos!

  9. Debbie, you have so many wonderful magical lights in your Christmas home! I too love the lights at Christmas time. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  10. Debbie, your house is spectacular! I don't know how you have the energy for all that decorating. All I can say is "unbelievable"! Wish I could see it in person to enjoy each scenario.

  11. Wish I could see it in person to enjoy the christmas celebration in your home.

  12. Wow! It's obvious how much joy you get from decorating for Christmas! Thanks, as always, for linking up at Best of the Weekend!
