WELCOME TO MY NEW BLOG!!!!

Even though this blog looks like my old one, Debbie-Dabble, "Debbie-Dabble Blog" is my new Blog that I created on June 23, 2016, after my old one was hacked through my Debbie-Dabble Face Book Page which I have now deleted!!

I am a Victorian Soul, live in a small townhouse, not a huge Mega Mansion, with my Hubby Joe. I recently went Part Time after working full time night shift as an RN on a Hospital based Rehabilitation( Physical Medicine) Unit for 32 years and have been in nursing for 38 years!

I DABBLE IN A BIT OF THIS AND THAT!!!!

DINNER FOR 2 & HEARTS AT WORK!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!

Even though I do decorate like a crazy woman, we really don't make a big deal out of celebrating Valentine's Day. Usually we are working so a nice meal at home is what we like.

I did a simple little tablescape........

You can see that I used one of my yard sale finds, a vintage tablecloth with red roses......

See my Dining Room Valentine Tree in the background......

A simple setting for two.....

Red chargers from the Christmas Tree Shop along with white dinner plates with a gold rim. These were also bought at the Christmas Tree Shop at 90% Clearance for 10 cents a piece!!!!
Yep! you read that right..... 10 cents a piece!!

The red heart plates are from Target on Clearance , of course!


The flowers , mercury glass votives and little cherub are items I pulled from the Living Room Valentine Decorations.....

A candy box that I embellished......

Vintage napkins.....








One of our favorite Italian Eateries is locally owned and called Leggio's. We usually call in an order and Joe picks it up on his way home from work.

You definitely get your money's worth.

This is Joe's favorite ........
Veal Parmigiana with a side of spaghetti and a salad......


Do you see the size of that piece of veal???? And yes, Joe ate the whole thing.......

An order of garlic bites is included.....

And this is half of my Chicken Parmigiana with a side of spaghetti......


Here is the other half with 2 garlic bites left over and I did not eat my salad. Another meal for me....

All this for a mere $31.00!!!

You can't beat it!!
The owner is right from Italy so the food is superb!

And now I want to show you how I decorated the Rehab Department in which I work for Valentine's Day.

Ever since I did the decorations for Christmas, I have been elected to do the decorations for other Holidays....

When you step off the elevator , you see the wreaths that I made....


Grapevine wreaths with a white rose garland wired in and red velvet roses and hearts from the Dollar Tree added to it....


I made the bows using 2 different ribbons....


I left up 2 of the little trees that we had in our Nurse's Station...
You know me with trees!!

Here is the little tree that I decorated for Valentine's Day using roses and red heart lights......

I left some of the snow men out because it is still winter....


And this tree is inside the Nurse's station and is still decorated for Winter with some silver balls and snowflakes and a snow man at the base. I just added a bow made out of Valentine Ribbon on the top.....

And I hung some cupids from another Dollar store ( pack of 6 for a buck) around!!


I will leave these decorations up for about another week at work since Feb. is Heart Month and then I will decorate for St. Patrick's Day......

Our patients and staff like the decorations and it makes things a bit more festive.......

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!!
