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!

George Eliot was actually a pen name for a woman named Mary Anne Evans......

Plains Antiques and Home Furnishings

First I want to Thank these Hostess's for featuring my post, A Few Garden Projects, from last week's parties:

Thanks to Linda and Carol over at Crafts a la mode  for featuring this post from last week's
 What to do Weekends party
And Thanks to the Girls that host the All Things Pretty Party, Leslie at  My Fashion Forward blog and Kathy at  Sparkles and A Stove!
 And I also want to Thank Kathryn over at The Dedicated House for featuring my post,
Wanna See What I Bought  # 3 ? , from last week's Anything Blue Party!
 Thanks so much, Ladies!!   Please pay them all a visit and link up to their wonderful parties!!

 Last weekend, Joe finally got me to go to Plains Antiques and Home Furnishings in Plains, Pa. which is about a 10 minute drive , at most, from our home.
Joe has been there several times during his wanderings on his days off when I am sleeping in the morning after working the night shift but I never seemed to have enough time to visit this wonderful establishment.


I had no idea what I was missing!!!!!
The store is owned by Larry and Diane Cook , who are Estate Liquidators and run wonderful Estate Sales through out our area.

They are also locally known for being friends of former President Jimmy Carter and First Lady, Rosalyn Cater and have been instrumental in bringing the Presidential Couple to our little area twice!!!

Once in 2011, where the former President stayed at one of my favorite local places ,
 The Frederick Stegmaier Mansion.
They stayed in the Amelia Suite which is where Joe and I stayed for our anniversary a few years ago.

Yes, we slept in the same bed  that a former President and First Lady slept in!!!!!!

The former President and his lovely wife again returned to our area this year to speak at the
 Wyoming Monument, site of a famous Revoluntionary War Battle, in Wyoming, Pa.
Again, this was at the request of the Cook's.

One of the links between the Cook's and the Carter's, is Plains. The Carters live in Plains, Georgia and the Cook's place of business is in Plains, Pa.  I am not sure if they live in Plains though.

Plains Antiques and Home Furnishings is a Vendor Co Op.

I was absolutely overwhelmed by the extent of spectacular items for sale in this store!!

The manager was kind enough to let me take a LOT of pictures so let me take you on a Tour of Plains Antiques and Home Furnishings in Plains, Pa.

Now who would not want a Phone Booth?????
I would die for any of this furniture!!
I just bought a cupola for my doll house. Now I know where to buy one for my house!!
An amazing Ship!
I am in love with this bedroom set!! It is in the waterfall style like my Mom's which I have in my bedroom but mine is not like this!!
And Holy Moly!!!  Look at this beauty!!!

I would also die for this one......

I believe that is a child's dresser!!!!
The guys from American Pickers , who were in our area not long ago, would love that gas pump!!
You know I would love a few of these things for my Kitchen, don't you?????

 If only I had more room in my Den........
They were killing me with all the hoosiers!!!!
Lots of glass cases filled with lots of goodies!!!!!

I am loving that typewriter!!

I know some of you are going crazy for this!!!
Wish I had room for that Tea Cart!!!!

Yet, another typewriter!!!!!
Look at those doors in the back!!

Loving this stove!!!!!!

And that wicker screen behind it!!!!
Good Grief!! Look at the size of this globe!!!!

Yet, another Hoosier!  They were killing me......

Look at these beauties!!
They deserve one more look!!

Be still my heart!!

Now let's go upstairs.....
Sweet MAMA!!

How amazing is this!!!
Drop dead gorgeous sconces!!!

Wish I had a large entry to put this Baby in!!

Wish I had a large front yard for this filled with flowers!!!
AND a large back yard for this entire set!!!!

Okay, how cool is this!!
I told you they were trying to kill me with all these hoosiers!!!
Don't know what is sweeter...this bassinet or the dog!!!!!!
Now you are probably wondering what I bought?????


My head was spinning with everything that I saw that I could not think straight!

I thought I died and went to HEAVEN!!!

I guess you know that I will be going back......
