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

A Winter Tea with Red Cardinals in the Kitchen

  Since we live in NEPA , I love to decorate for Winter, both inside and out .........
 First, I want to Thank Kathy, over at Life on Lakeshore Drive, for featuring my post, Welcoming Winter, The Outside......
  Among the Most Viewed Posts from last week's Bouquet of Talent Party!!
 Thanks so much, Kathy!!

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

 As I mentioned, it has been 2 years since I have decorated for Winter in the Kitchen......

 I like to decorate the desk/hutch and around it for the different Holidays and Seasons.......

 The Winter Theme for this area is Birds, mainly Cardinals........
 I even decorated a Winter Bird Tree......
 And underneath the Desk........
And I will share these in my next post......

But for today, I want to share Winter Tea with Red Cardinals!!
 Even though I have had these Red Cardinal items that I have used in this display for a few years, it has a special meaning this year.......

My Sister recently told me of a saying about Red Cardinals that I was not aware of......
I have Cardinals in my back yard all Summer long because of what I thought was the fact that I have a Bird Bath but now, I like to think that it is those that have gone before me, watching over my family.......
So this vignette is dedicated to those that are watching over me.........

And my sister and I are convinced that my Great Nephew Craig, is with our parents and is under their care now.....
Over to the left........
The Red Cardinal vintage vase and saucer were yard sale finds......
 This Cardinal is from Dollar Tree.......

 I took a picture from a Calendar and placed it in a white frame that I bought for $1.00 on Clearance in Target a few years ago........
The canning jars were bought several years ago after Christmas in Walmart........
I filled them with ice crystals and placed bottle brush trees inside of them........
You can see that one has a Snow Man and the other has a Snow Flake embossed on them.......

A mini Tea Set that was a Flea Market find for $1.00!!
I also want you to notice the pretty place mat that I have used..........

I bought it a Country Folks Store a few years ago........
Isn't this sweet??????

Look at the tea cups and saucers!!
Over to the right.......
This is a Tea Set that Joe picked up for me several years ago at Wegman's........
The Tea Pot did not have a lid ( must have been broken) so Joe was able to buy it for only a few dollars....
I put some greenery inside of it......

The Sugar Bowl and Creamer.......
Look at the Cardinal on top of the Sugar Bowl......
After I took these pictures, I added a white Snow Flake in the corner.......
 Joe had to get his 2 cents in with an ornament that he bought on Clearance in Wegman's for 49 cents!!!!!
 A light up Penguin!!!!!
 It changes colors!!
 To cute!!

You all know that Joe is a HUGE Penguin Hockey fan, right??????

And on the side of the hutch, I have a Calendar hanging......
 I will be saving this picture and framing it too!!

In my next post, I will share the rest of this area........
So 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!!

Thanks so much for all who offered well wishes after I had a tooth pulled. Truth be told, I went to work on Saturday night and about 3 am was hit, and I do mean hit, by an intestinal virus that left me stuck in the bathroom at work for 2 hours with massive vomiting and diarrhea until I finally felt that I could drive home at 5am!!!! It was not pretty!!  I am feeling better now, Thank God!! It was wicked though and I slept all day Sunday and Sunday night!!
I also posted my January Rudolph Day post for the 25th over on my Christmas Blog, A Debbie-Dabble Christmas, sharing some changes I made to some wreaths and how my Winter Outside decorations look with the snow that we got this weekend.......
