I am a Victorian Soul, live in a small townhouse that was built in the middle 70's, not a huge Mega Mansion, with my Hubby Joe. I worked night shift as an RN on a Hospital based Rehabilitation( Physical Medicine) Unit for 37 years before it closed in November of 2018 and have been a nurse for almost 41 years, with most of that time being full time!!! I recently had my knee replacement surgery done after putting it off for 6 years... I am NOW officially retired!!!!!

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas......

It's definitely beginning to look like Christmas at our house!!!

Before I give you a sneak peak of what I have been up to, I want to Thank Kathy, over at A Delightsome Life, for featuring my post, New Fall and Halloween Treasures, from last week's Home and Garden Party!!
Thanks so much, Kathy!!

And I also want to Thank Mimi, over at A Tray of Bliss, who hosts the Five Star Frou Frou Neverending Party, for featuring my post, Some New Found Treasures!!

Mimi featured my post in her post, Insourcing and Budgeting: Quick Fix Thrift Store Buys and Beautiful Treasures!!
Thanks so much, Mimi!!

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

During the month of October, I started decorating my upstairs for Christmas ,while the downstairs was decorated for Fall and Halloween!!

I have started posting for the Holiday Season over on my Christmas blog, A Debbie-Dabble Christmas, and I have been providing links to those posts here on this Blog.

I will continue to do this until this year's Holiday Season is over and then I will return to regularly posting back here on my regular blog.....

I thought I would give you a Peak of what I have already posted and what I will be sharing in the future over my Christmas Blog........

As I said before, the upstairs was decorated for Christmas in October...

First, I started with the Craft Room......
 Then the Master Bedroom.......
The Sitting Room......
The Bathroom......
And even in the Hallway......
Then the first week of November, we started the outside before it got too cold.....
 I then moved in side and started the downstairs, decorating the Dining Room first......
 This is my new pencil thin Tree that I bought last year on Clearance!!
And I just finished the Kitchen and made a few little changes in there too.....
I still have the Living Room, Den and Powder Room to decorate......

I hope that you will follow me over on my Christmas blog or click on the links that I will be posting here as I give you a Tour of each room decorated for Christmas!!

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

If you do not have a blog, PLEASE  give me some way to reply to your comment, maybe by including your email in your comment.  If I can not find a way to reach you, I will reply on the post where you commented so please check back......

  2. Debbie, your house is so lovely. You have some beautiful decorations. Not sure how you do it all. I am loving the pink. Thanks so much for sharing at DI&DI.

  3. My favorite of the inside has got to be the one in your bedroom, love the elegant feel to it!

  4. Wow, I have to say all the stunning colors have me wanting to have a tree in every corner of my home. That blush colored pink is just amazing. PLus the purple. You know I love the purple but the pinks you used this year is just fabulous!

  5. Love those pencil thin trees! I had to have one when I lived in a tiny apartment on the NJ boardwalk. Now I wish I had kept it, of course! Thanks so much for sharing your post with LTV this week. Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. Hello Debbie, your all the decorations are fantastic!


  7. Beautiful! I definitely need a pencil thin Christmas tree. We have a small house and cannot fit a regular sized tree anywhere so, we have a short little one we set up on a table top ;) Thanks for sharing at Funtastic Friday!

  8. So many pretties, Debbie! Love the sitting room tree and your lovely red wreath! Thanks for sharing @Vintage Charm!

  9. You have been decking the halls beautifully Debbie, both inside and out!! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  10. Amazing and gorgeous dear Debbie ! I so love that wreath, it brought me here from Foodie Friday where you are featured.
    Everything else is fabulous too my friend. I know you adore C'mas. I'm all decked out too, but now I'm into the new guest room reveal.

  11. Debbie, your home is SO gorgeous - have a blessed and festive Christmas season! :-)
