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 37 years before it closed in November of 2018 and have been a nurse for almost 41 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 am NOW officially retired!!!!!

St. Patrick's Day China Cupboard, Part 2, 2017


The other day we had a low temp. of 5 degrees so Winter is still with us here in NEPA........

In my last post, I shared how I decorated the china cupboard in the Den for St. Patrick's Day.....
 I showed you how I decorated the inside of the china cupboard......
 In this post, I am going to share how I decorated underneath the china cupboard.....
But first, I want to Thank Michael, over at Rattlebridge Farm, for featuring my post, Victoria on PBS, from last week's Foodie Friday and Everything Else Party!!
Thanks so much, Michael!!

I also want to Thank Julie, over at Julie's Creative Lifestyle, for featuring my post,  A Year Round Fairy Garden, from last week's Cooking and Crafting with J and J Linky Party!!
 Thanks so much , Julie and her co host Jessica, over at Plucky's Second Thought!!!
Please stop by and link up to this great parties!!

Back to the area underneath and around the china cupboard........
Over on the left, sitting on a small table, is a cute Bear in Irish garb.......
 A Shamrock plaque bought at Dollar Tree and a vintage post card rests on the table next to the Bear.......
 On top of 2 vintage suitcases stacked on top of each other......
 Again, I used dishes in the Old Curiosity Shop pattern..........
 They remind me of an Irish village.......
 A cute bear in a shamrock sweater and a green depression glass cake plate......
 Another vintage postcard.......

Over on the other side........
  A green depression glass bowl and a St. Patrick's Day card.......
  Another cute Bear sits on a chair underneath the small table......
  I covered the chair with a St. Patrick's Day dish towel.......
On the bottom suitcase........
More vintage postcards and St. Patrick's Day items......
And that is how I decorated underneath the china cupboard for St. Patrick's Day.........
 After St. Patrick's Day, I will change over the china cupboard using my red and blue transferware dishes........
This is how it looked last year........

I do have a cute St. Patrick's Day plaque that I bought for 25 cents at a yard sale hanging on the back door..........
And in my next post, I will be sharing my St. Patrick's Day Tree in the Den......
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!!

  1. Loving your Saint Patrick's day decor Debbie. And that antique suitcase for me is stealing the show next to all that gorgeous color.

  2. I think one of the teddies is hoping there will be Irish beer as well.

  3. Love your tree! That ornament at the very bottom ...above the larger hat....really caught my eye, so pretty. hugs...

  4. Such beautiful green... and it is no wonder that it all originated in Ireland where the green landscape is so rich. You've depicted that perfectly with your displays!

    I went and linked up myself so I'm not sure what was wrong with the link up when you saw it. Try it again when you get a chance. If still isn't working for you please let me know. Thanks so much, Debbie!

  5. Oh my goodness, those bears are adorable all dress up for the Holiday! Love the green depression glass bowl too! The tree is spectacular and festive! Looking forward to seeing it in more detail. Pinned you post to share! Hope you are able to enjoy many of the fun festivities in your area! Take care of you and Joe!
