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!

Evening to Night on the Front Porch, 2016

I want to Thank these Hostesses for featuring my post, Craft Room, 2016, Where Bloggers Create, from last week's parties!!

Thanks to Mimi, over at A Tray of Bliss, who featured my post in her post, Insourcing # 32 Make Your Day Cozy, Comfortable and Creative!

Mimi has recently stopped hosting a weekly party and now hosts Five Star Frou Frou, A Neverending Story!  which is a Linky Party that you can link up to any time and is permanently open, hence A Neverending Story!!

Thanks so much , Mimi!!

And Thanks to Jody and Stan, over at Rooted in Thyme , for featuring it from last week's  Simple and Sweet Friday Party!!
Thanks so much, Jody and Stan!!

Please stop by and link up to these great parties!!

Joe and I were lucky enough to catch an amazing Sunset while sitting on our front porch!
We are able to see the sunset from the porch all Summer long but this one I thought was pretty spectacular!!
The lights you see at the bottom of each photo are from the shopping center that we live next too!!
I love how the trees look as the sun sets over the mountains......
I love the silhouettes of the trees....
And as the Sun sets, the solar lights come on in the front of our house, in the yard and on the porch!!
Solar lights in pots of flowers.....
This was one of the things that Joe bought on Clearance in Wegman's. I moved it from the back yard to the front porch......
A Solar Light in this Cherub that sits on top of the milk can.....
Looking at the porch from the sidewalk......
I now have a set of Fairy Lights in this lantern......
The lights on the tree in the corner come on by Timer......
You can see my Patriotic Tree in the Living Room lit through the window.....
More fairy lights in a stained glass lantern and a solar fairy sits on the table in the corner......
Crackled glass solar lights are in the pots in front of the railing......
 In the front flower bed.......
More crackled glass solar lights......
 There is a solar light in the bird bath that we bought at Big Lots!!
 In the urns that sit on the wall between my next door neighbor's and our property......
Along the front of the front flower bed.....
A Welcome rock.....
I love the pattern cast by the solar light on the sidewalk....
A few colored mosaic lights and a toad stool......
My park bench......
A solar spotlight shines on my chippy white angel......
Another Welcome rock......
We love sitting out on the porch in the evening but unfortunately, most of this Summer has been too hot to do much of that!!

I am so looking forward to the Fall , which is my favorite time of year, because maybe I will actually not be stuck in the house with the air conditioning blasting!!

I hope to share my Reveal of my new "Sitting Room" next  so I hope you will be back to visit soon!!

And thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!

  2. Love the lights in the dark! The sunsets are just breathtaking! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. Beautiful images, my friend! Even at night your home looks very sweet and inviting :)

    Hugs and joy to you!

  4. Hi Deb: There are few things more beautiful than a sunset and it must be so calming to sit on your porch at night and have all the pretty twinkling going on around you. We sit on our new screened porch every evening and it is so peaceful. We don't see any sunsets and we don't get enough sun in the day to have solar lights, but I do have a few battery operated candles in lanterns here and there and I love it..Happy Week to you..Judy

  5. Very lovely photos! Greetings! Kisses:))


  6. That sunset really is awesome ♥


  7. I just love when the sunsets are that on fire, great colors and the trees look great silhouetted among it!! Love all the solar light things you have, I bet it looks just fantastic in person at night!

  8. Hi Debbie,It's been way too long since My last visit.I must get back to coming by more often.I think this is My first one since You have Your new blog.I love Your solar lights, so pretty. I should buy new ones or put new batteries in Mine,they are very dim.You sure did get gorgeous photos of the suset,very nice.I tried something new that I'll never do again with visitors comments....I published them all before I returned the visit.Well, never try that. I forgot so many of them and was very late returning them.I'll be back soon.Hugs and blessings Denise

  9. I do not have nearly as many as you do, but I do love my solar lights! I have string lights on my arbor and the cheapo's scattered all around my flower beds.

  10. It has been so hot here too and we all melt in the humidity, so it has been indoors for us too this summer. The sunset pictures are special - thanks for sharing it. All of the lights on your porch look amazing at night! I hope you are able to enjoy it soon! Thanks for linking up with us at Snickerdoodle Sunday! Take care of you and Joe!

  11. What a gorgeous view you have! Thank you for sharing your cozy porch @Vintage Charm!

  12. Your porch has a magical glow and you captured some amazing sunsets!

  13. It's too hot for us to sit outside right now but I'm really looking forward to the fall for that very reason. I especially like the solar light in the bird bath. I'm going to look for one of those.

  14. Summer evenings are so magical. Your light twinkle so beautifully
