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!!

New Buys for Christmas and a Sneak Peak, 2018

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

I am so excited that this is my first post for the 2018 Christmas Season........

I LOVE Christmas!!!!

But before I go any further, I want to Thank Cecelia, at The Thrift Store Addiction, for featuring a post,  A Bit More Fall and Halloween Decor in the Powder Room and Kitchen , on my regular Blog, Debbie-Dabble Blog, from last week's Vintage Charm Party!!
 Thanks so much, Cecelia!!!

Please stop by and link up to this great party.......

Even though I need more Christmas decorations like I need a hole in the head, I just can't resist buying something that catches my eye especially when it comes to Christmas......
The majority of these things are from Big Lot's whose Christmas line this year is truly spectacular!!!!

Big Lots offers a Rewards program where after so many purchases you receive a coupon for a minimum of $5 off of $15 and they also award you Bonus coupons from time to time......

Let me also say that I receive NO compensation from Big Lot's or Dollar Tree and I am in NO way affiliated with these to retail stores!!!!

I just like shopping there!!

I loved these Santa's.......
This one has a terrific vintage look.......
I love his face......
And you know how I love glitz!!!

He was $24 but I used a $5 off coupon.....

And I also bought this gold glittered Santa.......
He was only $12.00 but I once again used a $5 off coupon, also buying a Fall candle on Clearance to make the $15 purchase so this Santa was only $7.00.........

I also boguht some ornaments at Big Lot's......

Ornaments are my weakness and I always say that that is why I ended up with so many Trees at Christmas is because I can't resist ornaments!!!

I fell in love with these!!!!!

They are pink!!!

Rocking Horses!!!
And pink globe like ones!!!!
 As you can see they are part of the Enchantment Collection at Big Lots!!

I also bought these.......
These are part of the Holiday Cozy Collection......

Each pack of ornaments were $6 and again, I used a $5 off $15 coupon!!

Now the rest of these items were bought at Dollar Tree......
I just want to tell you that the Big Lot's and Dollar Tree where I shop are located right next to each other!!!

A Win Win Situation if you ask me!!!!

I could not resist this sign for my Kitchen which I decorate in a Gingerbread and Candy theme for Christmas!!
This will be perfect by my "Beverage" station!!

And again, I love me my ornaments!!!!!

Look at these darling owls!!!!
These are selling out as fast as they can stock them as I was told by an employee at Dollar Tree......
I went to a Craft Fair this weekend and saw them used to decorate Burlap wreaths!!!
I am going to pack them away and use them for my Winter decorations in the Den and Kitchen......
And I darn near died when I saw these in Dollar Tree!!
Pink Glittered angel wings!!!!!
Pink is apparently making a come back!!!

I bought several of these pink angel wings because they also sell out quickly!!

And I mentioned that I went to a Craft Fair yesterday......

A second cousin of mine was selling some crafted items there and these caught my eye!!
They are hand painted!!

A tea light holder.......
And 2 cute ornaments!!
They will be perfect in my Kitchen!!!!

I will let you in on a secret......

I have been decorating our upstairs for Christmas even though the downstairs is decorated for Fall and Halloween!!

Here is a sneak peak.......
 In my next post here on my Christmas Blog, I will be starting my Christmas Home Tour for 2018!!!!!

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

  1. Wow! You go all out for Christmas. I would like to clear a bunch of our "clutter" so I could buy more Christmas!

  2. Your Christmas decorations are oh so pretty, as usual,Debbie! I know you've been chopping at the bit just waiting to start blogging about Christmas, and you're always ahead of us all when it comes to decorating! Fun times!!! I love your new pink finds - I'll probably fall out if I ever see such sweet pieces done in purple! The purple ones I do find can be quite run of the mill and tasteless - and I'm always on the lookout! I do try to make a few purple ones every year to add to my collection. I found some purple buffalo plaid that I've been going crazy making this and that for the holidays! Can't wait to share!

  3. Love your new Santa and those red trucks! I'm stopping by Big Lots today just in case ours has them too.

  4. Wow, those owls are a delight stunning. What a joy to have a sneak peek upstairs, a true feast for the eyes.

  5. You are on it. I went to Dollar Tree today. The good stuff is going fast. I bought a red pick up truck ornament just like yours from Big Lots. Can't wait for the tour.

  6. Hi Debbie. You got some great new things for your Christmas decor this year. I just went to Big Lots and was amazed at how beautiful the Christmas items are. Have fun getting your home ready for Christmas.

  7. I haven't even decorated for Thanksgiving yet and you're already preparing for Christmas! Your finds are gorgeous and I'm kind of afraid to go to Big Lots for fear of going crazy :-)

  8. Those owls are adorable, no wonder they sell out so quickly and the pink ornaments...... so pretty. My daughter wants a dusty pink and white tree this Christmas and they would be perfect. Such a pity we don't have any Big Lots and Dollar stores here in South Africa. Maybe I can find some online that will ship here. I can't wait to see all your trees this year. It's become a bit of a tradition for me to pop into your Christmas blog to get ideas. You sure know how to go all out and your themed trees are always so lovely Debbie

  9. The pink Christmas ornaments are so pretty. Glitzy, glamorous and feminine, I love them.

  10. Wow I am loving that vintage looking Santa and the enchantment collection too

  11. I love the pink rocking horses! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!

  12. So many cute finds; I love those truck/ tree ornaments! Pinned.
