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!!!!

What I Bought and What I Made for Fall


 First , I want to Thank Jody and Stan, over at Rooted in Thyme, for featuring my post,
A Garden Tub Transformation, from last week's Simple and Sweet Link Party!!
Thanks so much ,Jody and Stan!!

And I also want to Thank Christine, over at Must Love Home, for featuring the same post, A Garden Tub Transformation, from last week's Friday Favorites Linky Party!!
Thanks so much, Christine and the other hosts of this wonderful party!!

Please stop by and visit and link up to this great parties!!

This is a long post because my next post after this will be the first in my Fall Home Tour Series so I want to share all the things that I have been crafting to decorate for Fall.

There is a LOT of photos ( you know me!)

I do promise that you will get a good laugh at the end because I accepted a dare from Joe......

Showing you photos of me that he took!!!

Now to the things that I bought and crafted.......

I went to Gabes the other day and bought a few cute things........

Cute for the Kitchen at $1.99!!
And look at these sweet leaf ornaments for $1.49 each!!
They will be perfect for my Fall Tree in the Living Room which I am working on now....


 Sneak Peak of my Fall Tree in the Living Room......
 See some of those leaves?????
 

 And this cute sign was also $1.99 at Gabes!!

Micheals have half pumpkins!!

Not sure how I will decorate this yet....
I will be decorating for Halloween in the Dining Room this year with the Living Room being reserved for Fall only!!

And now to what I bought at Dollar Tree ......
They light up and change colors but I wanted to use the back of them for a pretty glittered pumpkin in the Living Room......

 Sneak Peak.......


 They don't look like Jack-O -Lanterns now , right?
 
Also at Dollar Tree...
Now this was the LAST ONE and I will definitely use it for the blinking eyes in my Halloween decorated Dining Room......

A pack of 50 Leaves for crafting.....
And look at these pretty Leaves for crafting!!
They are have a mesh texture......






 These were great for "Blinging" up a few plain pumpkins that I had bought on Clearance last season.....

Velvet Pumpkins from Big Lot's....
 I used ornaments for the top to look like berries....
 The acorn ornaments were bought at Dollar Tree last year....
I also added a bit more "Bling" to some other pumpkins....
You will have to come back and visit again if you would like to see more......

Ha Ha!

You may remember that I bought a few plaques at Dollar Tree.....


Here is what I did with it........
I simply hung the Dollar Tree plaque in the middle of this wreath that I made......
I have this hanging in the Hall Way between the Living Room and Kitchen......
Love the glitter on the plaque!!


 The other plaque.....
 Is hanging here......


And this one.....
 I made this ......

Here is where I displayed it......
  The broom is something that I already had........

I added a bow made from Deco Mesh ribbon and some Dollar Tree flowers......
And I glittered the plaque up a bit and added 2 glittered leaves , also from Dollar Tree.....

Making it look a bit more elegant.......

The glitter also came from Dollar tree....3 tubes for a Buck!!
And I also made a few more things.......
 A Fall Tussie Mussie........
 I made this by using a paper mache witch's hat that I bought on Clearance at Michaels  a few seasons ago....
I painted it, added stickers ( also on Clearance for 90% off) , glittered it up a bit....
 Florals from Dollar Tree......

 A 2 tone ribbon bow .....


 Joe bought this Candle -Vase? at Wegman's on Clearance for $7.00.......
 It allows you to fill the bottom with whatever you want so I used Pumpkin Fillers from Dollar Tree...
And more of those leaves.....
And filled the bottom part......
 I also taped some of those leaves , using scotch tape to a Flameless Candle on a Timer...
Picture ornaments at Christmas and eggs for Easter filling that bottom.......

Good job, Joe!

And this little wagon, that was a Flea Market find for $1.00!

Filled with florals from Dollar Tree.....
Love those glittered pumpkin and leaf picks!!



And this is where it is displayed.....
Also made this....
 This is nothing but a used and stained cookie sheet, spray painted with Chalkboard Paint and I wrote on it free hand using a White Paint Marker!!
Here is where I have it.....
And you remember my Toilet Paper Pumpkins that I made.....
 Click HERE if you missed that post.....

 Here is where 2 of them ended up......
 I also made a new wreath for the front door.....
 A lot of Dollar Tree Florals....

NOW......

Joe dared me to post these photos that he took as I was crawling around on the floor covering the platform under the Tree with a tablecloth........

SO.......

I am throwing my pride out the window and I hope you get a good laugh.....

With me!!

Not at me!!

 Yes, the Tree and platform are already up in the Living Room which will make it easy for me when decorating for Christmas......
 But, and I DON'T mean BUTT, I wanted to cover the platform where I display my Christmas Village .....
 So I cut a slit in a table cloth and gathered it around the Tree......
 Covering the platform.....
 May I mention that we took the air conditioner out of the window so I could clean the window and hang the lace curtains before putting up the tree.......
 And it was in the high 80's that day and I was sweating Bullets!!!!!!

I think I better get my BUTT on that stationary bike!!

Joe thought he was being FUNNY and was taking photos as I was flopping around on the floor like a beached whale ,which is no easy task with a bad knee and bad back!!

He dared me to post them on my Blog!!

So THERE YOU HAVE THEM, JOE!!!!!!!!

OKAY....for those of you who fell off your chairs laughing, you can get up now........

I hope you enjoyed some of my Sneak Peaks........

My Fall Home Tour 2015 will start next week where I will share how I decorated the Front of the House for Fall this year.....
  I  hope you will come by and visit  again!!

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

Debbie
