Vintage Christmas Faux Fire Place in the Sitting Room, Christmas Home Tour, 2020

 





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

 I am so happy you decided to stop by my Christmas Blog!!

 I want to mention that since Blogger changed to a new format for posting, if you can click on each picture if you care to enlarge it...... 
 
 Every room in our townhouse 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 room every year and I know that this is not what most Decorator's care for but to me, it like seeing old friends again when I decorate each year for Christmas as many of my decorations were gifts from family and friends........... 

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 bring back a lot of treasured memories.....
 
I am FINALLY finished decorating the entire house , both inside and out , for Christmas, meeting my Goal to be done before Thanksgiving Day this year.....
 
I have tried to accomplish this for many years and always fell short but this year I was determined!!! 

And it only took my 33 days to accomplish it!!!!

Yep!!

You ARE reading that right!!

33 Days!!!!
 
Here is the breakdown:
 
Upstairs Hall - 1 Day..
 
Upstairs Bathroom - 1 Day...
 
Master Bedroom - 2 Days
 
Craft Room - 2 Days
 
Sitting Room - 4 Days
 
Front Porch and Yard - 4 Days
 
Den - 4 Days
 
Kitchen - 3 Days
 
Dining Room - 3 Days
 
Powder Room - 2 Days
 
Living Room - 6 Days
 
Doll House - 1 Day...
 
  33 DAYS!!!!!!
 
And people wonder why I say I have to start the upstairs on October 1st!!!! 
 
I did take my time and think about what I wanted to change up a bit ....

Now I plan on sitting back, relaxing, crafting, enjoying Christmas movies and music and reading!!!!

I have mentioned how much I LOVE being retired??????

First, I want to Thank, Naush, over at Doodle Buddies, for choosing my post, Christmas in the Craft Room, as one of her features from last week's Meraki Link Party!!! 
 

Thanks so much, Naush!!!
