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!!!!

Things are Starting to Bloom!!

Welcome!!

Finally, things are starting to bloom around here!!

But first, I want to Thank Bev, over at Eclectic Red Barn, for choosing my post, Easter in the Kitchen, from last week's Thursday Favorite Things Party!!!
Thanks so much, Bev, for your kind words!!

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

This is my Forsythia, which I keep trimmed down because I do not want it to grow too large.
As you can see, it is already turning green......

This is my neighbor's forsythia........
Beautiful, isn't it??????

This greets us as we walk up the stairs to our front porch and sidewalk........
It is a type of Rhododendron and is in my next door neighbor's yard.......
This is a tree in our back yard.......
We already sprayed it with a mixture of Dawn and water because the Gypsy Moths loved the leaves on this tree and mowed them right down for the past 2 years.
The mixture of Dawn and water works well for killing the gypsy moths......

I have also been going through craft supplies that I had down our storage shed.

 These were things that I bought when I was selling crafts on Ebay and at local Craft Fairs......

After taking a few years off, I have decided that I will not return to being a vendor at local craft fairs.

It is too hard.

So I have been going through everything and donated most of what I felt I would not make for myself or make for gifts to our church for their upcoming flea market and to the local Volunteers of America Store.

I did come across several brand new pre- made wreaths that I wired together and made into 3 wreaths......

I decided to hang them on the back door and the windows of the Den .........

This is the one that I hung on the back door.....
The windows of the Den are under the awning of our patio in the back of our house......
We still have to set up the patio for the Summer season......
I thought these would freshen up the patio for this year.....
So things are finally starting to bloom around here........ both real blooms and pretty faux blooms!!

I have been under the weather a bit.....

I have been having issues with my Blood Pressure. I was on the same medication regime for over 10 years and all of a sudden, my Blood Pressure kept going up.

After 2 different visits to the Dr. and having 2 of my medications increased and times adjusted, I think we finally have things under control.

I am waiting for blood work to come back to make sure that the increase in my Blood Pressure isn't being caused by my Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, which is an Auto Immune disease or by any other issues. So we will see.......

 I do 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!!

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......

Hugs,
Debbie

Spring/Summer Powder Room, 2017

Welcome!!

I want to Thank Kathy, over A Delightsome Life, for featuring my post,  Easter Buffet in the Dining Room, from last week's Home and Garden Party!!
Thanks so much, Kathy!!

Please stop by and link up to this wonderful party!!


I also want to Thank Marci, over at Stone Cottage Adventures, for featuring my post, Easter in the Kitchen, as one of the features she chose from the  Celebrating Spring Linky party!
 Thanks so much, Marci!!

And I also want to Thank Laurie, over at My Husband Has Too Many Hobbies, for choosing my post, Easter Mantle, as one of her features from the Celebrating Spring Linky party!
Thanks so much, Laurie!

You may remember that this is the way the Powder Room looked for Christmas and Winter......
Painting this room gray several years ago allows me to change the whole feel of the room with the color of the accessories that I use.....

I have now changed it back to what it normally looks like.....
 And I do apologize to those that have seen this room before but I do have some new followers who maybe have not seen it before.......

You can see that the Blue and White of the Snow Buddies and Christmas decorations has been replaced with Pink and Black.........

Let's start over to the right of the door...........
This Powder Room sign hangs above the door.......
This is the corner above the sink......
I like to use shelves........
Many of the items now used in this room have a Victorian Boudoir feel........
The beads hanging from the shelf were bought after Christmas at Wegman's........
These pictures were yard sale finds and I spray painted the frames black......
I also like to decorate above the medicine cabinet.....
The sink area......
A silver tea cup and saucer are used for a soap dish.......
Moving around the room....
 You can see that I have used a lot of perfume bottles, beads, purses. picture frames with vintage pictures in them and gloves......

A shelf unit above the toilet.......
Between the medicine cabinet and shelf unit.......
 Above the toilet......
 In the corner.......
A candle chandy and vintage tole tray hangs in the corner.......
An estagere sits in the corner......

Next to the estagere is a 3 tier shelf........
Another shelf unit hangs on this wall.......
Sconces on each side.....
Above the shelf unit......
On each of the small Home Interior shelves.......
 The sconce in the center was gifted to me by my sister several years ago......
 I did mention that I like shelves, didn't I?
  A purse hangs from the sconce on the right side......
 Above the closet that houses the washer and dryer.....
 A plaque that I made......
 The Powder Room will now stay like this until it is time to decorate it for Christmas......

I hoped you enjoyed seeing how changing the colors and theme of your accessories could make a room look totally different!!

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!!

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......

Debbie
