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 that was built in the middle 70's, not a huge Mega Mansion, with my Hubby Joe. I worked night shift as an RN on a Hospital based Rehabilitation( Physical Medicine) Unit for 36 years before it closed in November of 2018 and have been a nurse for over 40 years, with most of that time being full time!!! I recently had my knee replacement surgery done after putting it off for 6 years... I will be officially retiring very soon....

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

Tea in the Garden!

First off. my thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the flooding in Colorado and other states. My area is no stranger to flooding so I do understand what all of you are going through.....

 I want to Thank Kathy over at Life on Lakeshore Drive for giving my post , I'm in the Newspaper, a Special Shout Out!!!
 Kathy hosts the weekly party , A Bouquet of Talent Party!

Thanks so much , Kathy!!   Please take some time to visit and link up to this great party!!

Again, I worked on this post about 2 weeks ago so I would have a post up while I am working on clearing out my downstairs and painting...
The flooring in coming on Friday so that it adapts to the atmosphere in the house and then on Monday, the 23rd, remodel starts!!

We finished all the painting in the DR and the LR so now, over the last 3 years, the entire downstairs has been repainted!!

Back to this post.....

This is just a simple little Teascape outside on the Patio.....
The garden is actually starting to show signs of Fall now.......

It is so hard to get good pictures when the Sun is out in full force as half of the yard is shaded by the trees in the back.....

I took a lot of these pictures over the course of a day...

I used one of my vintage tablecloths....
Remember those purple dishes that Joe bought for $1.00 each on Clearance at Wegman's?

And the tea pot , creamer and sugar bowl is from T.J.Maxx and Marshall's.....

The Tea and Toast sets came from Salvation Army!!

In looking at these pictures now, I realize that I have the spoon and the fork in the wrong place!!!

I guess it was a Senior moment!!

Hopefully, my next post will show you the painting we have done in the DR and LR and how I re-arranged some of the wall art , which I have a lot of!! Remember, I am a Victorian Soul who subscribes to the Philosophy of More is More!!

I am still trying to catch up on my visiting but right now life is a bit crazy and my house looks like a bomb went off inside it!!

I am so jealous of all the wonderful Fall decorating ideas I am getting glimpses of on all your Blogs!!
As I have mentioned before, I will be skipping Fall and Halloween decorating in the house this year but I will be going straight into Christmas decorating since I already have all my knick knacks and doo dads all packed up from the downstairs!

After they are done doing all the cutting of the flooring on my Front Porch, I hope to at least decorate the porch for Fall......

And I will be doing our church's Harvest Tea on October 9th. I will be decorating one table and my theme is "Quoth the Raven, Nevermore!"  I will be decorating it in Black, White and Silver......

I do have links to my Fall and Halloween decorations from last year on my side bar if you are interested......
