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!!!!

A Few More Projects for my "New" Sitting Room

  Well, I have finished the final project that I wanted to do in completing the task of turning our Guest Room into a Sitting Room for me!!

Sewing!!!

You see, I based the color theme of the this room on this bedding set, bought at a church flea market!
 I loved the yellow back ground with the floral print and even matched the wall paper border to this set.

Now that we no longer have a bed in this room, I decided to re-purpose the sheets because I am keeping the comforter to throw over myself on chilly evenings while I sleep read in my new recliner!!

I first started with the Dust Ruffle .............
I decided that I would add the ruffle to this blue tablecloth that was too short for this round table......
I then chose to finish it off with some trim........
Remember the trim from the lamp shades that I embellished?????
 If you missed that post, please click HERE
I do want to find a table round that is slightly larger in diameter ..........
Next to the table is a small vanity chair.......
This is how it looked several years ago when I first re- upholstered it using fabric from a tablecloth!!
And this is how it looks now!
I used fabric from a pillow sham for the back of the chair........
Trimmed it with some ribbon roses........

 I cut up the fitted sheet and covered the seat of the chair......
And trimmed it off with the fringed trim and a few ribbon roses.......
I also made a few covers for some pillow forms......
Again, using the fabric from the fitted sheet and then adding trim.......
 In this corner is where my white Christmas Tree will be set up for next Holiday Season........
 More pillows are on the recliner........
Again, I used the fitted sheet fabric and a pillow sham.......
I cut out a square from the pillow sham and sewed it onto the center of this pillow........
This one was made from the left over pillow sham fabric.....
And another small one , which will be perfect for behind my head when reading!!!!!
I had picked up another dust ruffle to match this bedding set several years ago at a Thrift Store.

I decided to make it into a valance for above the closet door to dress up that area a bit......
For right now, this is the entire dust ruffle but I can cut it in half if I decided to use it for the window!!
It is hung rather simply with a spring tension rod!!
I still have the entire flat sheet left that I most likely will use to  make curtains for the window for next Summer.......

And I also did one last spray painting project for this room.......

I bought this set of wicker furniture at a flea market several years ago.......
Since I painted almost everything else in this room white, I decided to give this little doll set a punch of color!!
I spray painted it pink!!
And that completed all the projects that I wanted to do to turn our Guest Room into a Sitting Room.......

Next week, I will be sharing the Reveal of my "New" Sitting Room!!

So I hope you will be back to visit soon!!

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

Please take some time to stop by and link up to these great parties!

In Big Lot's, he found these vinyl Patriotic tablecloths for just over $1.00 each.....
And how could he resist this sign with a B on it since our last name starts with B!!!!
In Wegman's, he found some great lighting items!!
I am only showing 2 packs here but he bought 4 packs of Fairy Lights with a 5 foot cord for only $4.00 each!!
And 3 packs of Solar Bottle Lights at $5.00 each marked down from $15 each!

This Solar lantern was reduced to $7.00 from $30!
Here is what I did with one set of the Fairy Lights.....
I placed them in a crackle glass candle jar holder that Joe bought last year on Clearance in Wegman's.
 They also can be set on a timer too!!

And here is where I hung this Solar Lantern.......
 
I attached one of the Bottle Solar Lights to a Vintage clear Bottle.......
The lights are yellow in color and flicker when lit!!
In Sam's Club, he could not resist these.......
 A set of 5 LED lights that light up in white, red, green or blue for only $20!!!

 You can dim them and also put them on a timer with a remote control......
 I decided to use them in the Kitchen.......

I placed 3 of them underneath the shelf above the counter bar in the Kitchen......
And 2 of them above the sink......
You can see how they looked with the white lights on.........
 
Here is how they look in red..........
In green.........
And in Blue.......
  These will be great for Holiday lighting!!

You can also use the remote to dim them and put them on a timer.....

Also in Wegman's, these were reduced to $1.74 each!!
Here is where I hung 2 of them!
This Herb Garden Container Set was only $2.00. I will put this away for next Summer.....
And these were under $2.00 each!!
These dish towels were marked down to 74 cents each!!
Not too bad of a haul!!
