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 Halloween Funeral Basket, Poe and Pumpkins!!!

 
 Welcome!!

Today I will be sharing more of my Halloween decorations in our Dining Room......

 I decorate the Living Room in an Autumn Elegance theme but the Dining Room is reserved for Halloween!!!

I already showed you my Quote the Raven Nevermore Buffet......
 Click HERE if you missed that post......

And I also shared my Halloween Tree Corner.......
  Click HERE if you missed that post.......

Today I will be showing you the corners of the Dining Room near the Kitchen.....

Let's start where we left off over by the Tree..........
I switched out the china tea cups on the shelf under the large picture entitled "May I Play?"
For silver tea cups, 2 spooky plates and a Halloween box.......
My Skeleton Bride and Groom ornaments are sitting in the tea cups......
This is the left corner over by the Kitchen....
On the shelf by the curio......
I embellished the glass bowl, placed a milk glass plate on top of it and placed a potion bottle on top of the plate........
I spray painted a wood candlestick silver and glued a spider web candleholder to the top of it......
To the left of the curio on a marble topped table is my funeral basket which I decorate for all seasons and Holidays......
I particularly like to decorate it for Halloween........
I wrapped a black rose vine that lights up around the handle and added a bow I made from Halloween ribbon...........
Inside the basket is an arrangement of black flowers , white magnolias and orange fall leaves......
I also tucked a few vintage style Halloween cards into the arrangement......
There is also a LED lighted branch tucked into the arrangement to light it up in the evening.....

On the table.......
A small bowl of bones and a paper mache casket that I painted and embellished......
This is an actual antique Funeral card........
You can see that I placed a skeleton inside the casket......
I placed a spider web place mat on the marble topped table......
At the base of the table is a pumpkin that I embellished a few years ago.......
On top of the curio are 2 more pumpkins.....
I embellished the witches hat by adding a bow and Halloween garland around the rim......
I painted the face on the one pumpkin and added trim and letter stickers spelling BOO on the other and topped it off with an owl.......
Hanging from the curtain rod of my "faux" window, I hung a Halloween Tussie Mussie that I made......
A Tussie Mussie is a cone shaped container used to carry flowers back in Victorian times.....
Next to the curio on top of a cabinet that my Dad made many years ago.....
On top of my Victorian Melodium.......
A mercury glass silver pumpkin, topped with a raven, rests inside a milk glass compote......
The compote was placed on a Dollar Tree silver tray surrounded by skulls and a bone...
A black lace spider web runner covers the top of the cabinet and the melodium......
On each side of the melodium , are Dollar Tree tombstones and a rat......
A "Creepy" silver sign bought at Michael's a few years ago sits in front of the melodium.....
Over in the opposite corner near the Kitchen.....
I already shared my "Quote the Raven Nevermore" Buffet......
On the wall in the corner......
I ran off a copy of a photo of Edgar Allen Poe for the computer and placed it in a frame that I spray painted black.....
On a shelf, is a Jack O Lantern filled with black roses and topped with a raven....
Hanging from the magnolia metal flowers are Skeleton ornaments....
Hanging in the corner is another Victorian Tussie Mussie that was gifted to me.....
I filled it with balc and orange flowers and a sparkly orange cat pick.....
I think this wall accents my "Quote the Raven Nevermore" Buffet........
On the floor by the buffet......
In the corner.......
This is the witch that I bought this season at Wegman's for $10!!
Embellished pumpkins and a Bearington Bear Trick or Treater!!!
This is what this sign looked like originally.....

No, it is not the one from my Kitchen but an identical one that both my neighbor Elly and I  bought at a "yard sale" at of all places. Red Lobster!!!

They were remodeling and had a yard sale , selling decor that they no longer had use for. We bought the signs for $5.00 each!!

Since my neighbor Elly is in a Nursing Home for Alzheimer's and her sons have allowed me to take whatever I want from her house in return for caring for the house and grounds since they do not live locally, I took this sign......
I painted it white and then painted the center with black chalkboard paint so I can now write whatever I chose to on it......

 I also decorated the Dining Room Chandy a bit........
 I hung a silver and black beaded garland that I bought in Target several years ago after Christmas......
 I have silver leaf and pine cone ornaments......
 Silver and white owls......
And a black chandy ornament hangs in the center.....

And this is where I will leave off for this post.......

In my next post.......
I will be sharing a Tale of 2 Haunted Houses......
So I hope you will be back to visit again soon.......
