Christmas at Nelson Crest, 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.....


Today, I will be sharing how Nelson Crest, my Victorian Doll House, is decorated for Christmas this year....

But first, I want to Thank to Mel, over at Decor Craft Design and Colleen, over at Butterfly in the Attic, both of whom are the Creative Hosts of You're the Star Blog Hop, for choosing my post, Christmas Crafting, as one of their features from November's party for Creative Week!!!

 

 Thanks, Mel and Colleen!!!

 Thanks, Melissa, over at Little Frugal Homestead, for featuring my post, A Bit of Thomas Kinkade Christmas in the Den, from last week's Farm Fresh Tuesdays Blog Hop!! 

Thanks again, Melissa, and thanks for your very kind words!!!!

Please stop by and link up to these charming partes!!

Last week, we got 3 inches of snow sort of unexpectedly because they predicted only a dusting....

I took just a few pictures of my "Garden Art' in the back yard with a bit if snow.....

 

 

Appropriately, the flag says SNOW!!

Toadstools....

Love her hat....


Love how the snow look like a path on the bottom of the flag.....

 I am sure that I will be sharing some more snow pictures as we have a foot of snow predicted for tomorrow!!!!

I am so excited!!!

Last week, I gave my son's apartment a good deep cleaning....

Don't get me wrong, he does clean but it needed a Spring cleaning type of cleaning after he has lived here for over 10 years.....

He has a nice little apartment....

To the left of his Kitchen is the stairs as he lives in a second floor apartment in the Apartment Complex right by us.....

 
He moved in to an apartment that had been gutted and had all new cabinets, counter tops, carpeting, appliances, tile etc.....
 
  
 
All appliances come with the apartment except for a washer and dryer....
 
There is a laundry room for each row of apartments....

The Living Room....



Blinds for the windows come with the apartment.....

The on the right side leads to a walk in storage closet....





Yes, that is his Christmas Tree......


His Dining area with our sweet Savanna's ashes on the shelf.....


Down the hall is the bathroom and the bedroom.....


His bathroom.....



 He has a nice sized bedroom.......

 
 
 
 
 Another large window......
 
It was weird cleaning the same bedroom furniture that he had as a kid.....


When both our sons moved out, I had them take their bedroom furniture, which I bought for them as kids, with them as I had other plans for their bedrooms.........
 
There is a large walk in closet to the right.......

Heat and water are included in his rent.....
 
Jim and Danielle live in the same apartment complex in a townhouse which is larger than mine and they have their washer and dryer included.....

Best buy for the money if you ask me......

Today, I will be sharing Nelson Crest decorated for Christmas......



Hugs,
 
Deb
