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......

First, I want to Thank these hosts for featuring my post,  Few Different Plant Containers and Plant Stands, from last week's parties!!

Welcome to my Craft Room!!
Not much has changed in here since last year.......
When I re-organized and labeled just about everything!!
I am giving you a tour of the whole room first.....
Now let's get into the details!!

As you enter, hanging on the door knob is a clothes pin bag where I store bags from the super market to use in wastebaskets......
My door stop is a vintage iron and I have my pink folding step stool always ready for when I need to reach something......

To the left as you walk in.....
Above the closet......
 Next to the closet......
 Fabric is stored in this vintage hamper.....
 Buttons and other Doo Dads are stored in glass jars......
  I recently did a little transformation of this vintage wash board.......
 I always say that I have to have my "pretties" in this room for inspiration!!
 Photos of all the women in my family and Joe's who worked hard , raised families and provide me with inspiration every day!!
 If you missed my post on A Tribute to the Mothers in My Family, Please click HERE
 Shelves on the wall........
Shelf units stores tubs filled with supplies.....
 In the corner is a tower that Joe made for me to store wreaths on......
I used extra brackets to hang embroidery hoops and more wreaths from.....
 Moving around the room.....
 A chandy without wiring married to a swag lamp hangs above my work table....
 My work table which is an old computer desk with a piece of wood on it to make it larger.....
 I bought this shelf at Salvation Army......
More storage on the side.....
My chair used to be an Altar chair at a church that cost $5.00 at the church's flea market......
I dressed it up a bit........
 And re-upholistered the seat.....
On the side of my work table are more shelves and my TV......
An old drawer is used to store glues......
On the right side of the table.......
This is my Summer Tree......
This Tree stays up year round and will look like this until I decorate it for Christmas.....
On the long shelf close to the ceiling........

Some old Home Interiors things to "pretty" up the room......
Joe's Grandmother's vintage Singer Sewing Machine....
I have chosen to display vintage sewing items on the top of the sewing machine....
The lamp was bought at a Thrift Store and I "dabbled" with the lamp shade......
Vintage bottles filled with old buttons, thread spools.........
A small vintage Singer child's machine......
Vintage needle packs....
Darning items......
Storage drawers for ribbon flowers on each side underneath the sewing machine.........
A few "pretties" on the floor under the machine which does have sewing supplies and threads stored in the drawers......
Over in the corner......
Shelves filled with more "pretties"...........
Another shelf unit.....
Some of my Thomas Kinkade Pink Ladies.....
More storage for Craft and Sewing supplies........
This is the sewing area of my craft room......
 This table was built by my Dad for my Mom and was called a "Kidney Vanity Table" because f it's shape.....
 I use the area underneath it for more storage for supplies and craft books.....
 Again, the chair is a flea market find that I painted and re-upholstered the seat.....
 The fabric for the seats on the chairs and the cover for the sewing machine was once a curtain.....
I use a magnetized metal dish intended for screws and nails as a convenient place to put pins in when sewing......
Storage for patterns, phamplets and instruction books........
