WELCOME TO MY NEW BLOG!!!!

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!

I DABBLE IN A BIT OF THIS AND THAT!!!!

Fairy Garden in a Galvanized Tub, 2018

But first, I want to Thank Kathryn, over at The Dedicated House, for featuring my post, 2 Tea Cup Shelves in the Dining Room, in her Sunday Showcase post as the post who came in at 1st Place for The Most Views from last week's Make It Pretty Party!!!
Thanks so much, Kathryn!!

Thanks so much, Cecelia!!!

Cecelia, co- hosts The Vintage Charm Link Party so please stop by and visit and link up to this charming party!!!

It has been a wet month here in NEPA!!

Last week , we got 5 inches of rain over the week and just on Sunday, we received another 1 1/2 inches of rain!!!!
Usually the sun wrecks havoc in my Cottage Garden when I am trying to take pictures but I enjoyed a rather relaxing evening on Memorial Day after the kids left, sitting out in the back Patio and decided to take a few photos since the Sun had swung around to the front of the house.......

Off the patio in a large galvanized tub on wheels, is one of my Fairy Gardens......
I have had this Fairy Garden in a tub for several years now but this year, I decided to switch things up a bit.......

In a previous post, I shared my Fairy Garden that I set up on the mantle of my faux fire place in the Sitting Room.......
 Click HERE if you missed it......

I used a lot of the pieces for this indoor Fairy Garden that I had previously used outside.....

So I decided to head over to Big Lot's to see what was new this year in their Fairy Garden section.......

And here is what I bought....

A new Solar House!!
Some cute brick pathways......
 A darling Dining set.......
And a few more Fairies.........
And here is how it all turned out..........
 I don't do a lot of plants in the tub because I found that they tend to take over the entire tub......
So I mainly went with the succulents frequently called, Hens and Chicks.......
They have been planted in this tub for a few years now and I have to thin them out yearly!!!
This Tea Pot house was bought at Big Lot's in the past.....
Green gem stones from Dollar Tree symbolizes grass......
Several Fairies frolic outside.......
Including the new Fairies that I recently bought.....
You can also see the new Dining set and the pathways.......
Here is the new Solar house!!
Blue gem stones also bought at Dollar Tree, symbolize a pond......
You can see more Fairy Garden pieces and Gnomes in the Garden behind the tub.......
But that will be a post for another time....
I hope you enjoyed seeing my Fairy Garden in a Galvanized Tub for this Summer Season.......
 Did I mention that the tub is on wheels so it can be moved around???????

I also want to share this pair of Morning Doves that joined me out in the garden that evening.......
They were perched up in my lilac tree.....
Aren't they sweet??????

In my next post, keeping with the Fairy Garden theme, I will be sharing how I decorated the hearth area of my faux fire place in the Sitting Garden......
   So I hope you will be back to visit again soon.......

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

A Garden Tea Table in My Sitting Room, My Very Own Bed and Breakfast Series

 Welcome!!!!!

Today, I will be sharing my Garden Themed Tea Table in my Sitting Room......

But first, I want to Thank Bev, over at Eclectic Red Barn , for choosing my post,  2 Tea Cup Shelves in the Dining Room, as one of her features from last week's Thursday Favorite Things Party !!
Thanks so much, Bev!!

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

In a previous post, I showed you how I decorated the mantle on my "faux" fire place in the Sitting Room in a Fairy Garden theme.......
 I had decided the decorate the Sitting Room in a Garden theme for the Summer after I hung this wreath that I made on the door of the Sitting Room....
  In keeping with the Garden theme, I set up the table in the one corner of the room as a Garden Tea  Table.........
This is the corner where the Tree stood at Christmas.........
The Tree is moved downstairs and decorated for the Patriotic Summer Holidays which I will share in another post.......
This is the perfect corner for the Tea Table because my Tea Cup shelf is also hung in this corner!!
This room has a pretty floral border as you can see below........
That is why I decided to go with a Garden theme in this room ......
The top of the table.....
2 ceramic dishes that were made by my niece Lisa commemorating my 2 son's births hang on the wall......
I embellished the shade on the lamp on the table when I changed the Guest Room into a Sitting Room a few years ago.......
I had used various trims from my stash.......
The lamp is a vintage capodimonte lamp......
Let's take a look at what is on top of the table......
Let's take a look on the left side......
The vase is a yard sale find that cost $1.00.....
In front of the vase is a creamer and sugar bowl that is part of a vintage Tea Set.......
I scattered a few flower seed packets around the display......
The center of the table.......
A tea cup and saucer that is part of the Tea Set.......
A bird's nest with eggs sits inside of the tea cup........


Isn't the pattern on the tea cup pretty?????
A vintage plate with a pretty pattern which was also bought at a flea market rests behind the tea cup and saucer.......
2 yellow ceramic birds also grace the table along with a Garden stepping stone bought at Dollar Tree....
Over on the right side......
Another bird and the matching tea post which is sitting on a pedestal.....
The bright pink doily on the pedestal was found in the Dollar bins at Michael's and it is topped with a vintage doily.....
The pattern on the tea set (which I paid $8.00 for including 4 tea cups and saucers) many years ago at yard sale just screams Summer.....
Another flower seed packet.....
A pretty tea and toast set with an egg sitting in the dish.....
I think my Tea table depicts a Garden Tea even though it is indoors......
I made the tablecloth on the table by sewing the dust ruffle from a sheet set to the bottom of the table cloth, trimming it to the right size for the table......
On top of the table cloth is a vintage topper and a scarf with pink tatting around the edges.........
Can you see the scarf with the pink tatting border?????

Tatting is a lost art.....My Mother tried to teach me when I was a young girl and I just could not pick it up......
Do you see the tea cup pockets in the corners of the topper????

You can put a ta bag packet in the pocket!!!
Isn't the embroidery precious!!
The other pocket.....
I love the delicate trim around the topper......

A bistro chair is to the side of the table......
I re-covered the chair a few years ago using the sheet set that matches the dust ruffle.....
The tassel trim on the chair match the trim on the dust ruffle that I added on to the table cloth......
 You can see that I also used the same trim on the pillows......
A sweet Ballerina Bearington Bunny sits on the chair along with a pair of gloves that I embellished.....
A lace parasol rests up against the chair.......
I hope you enjoyed my Garden Tea Table........
 This post is part of my series, My Very Own Bed and Breakfast.....

As I have mentioned many times before, I am a Victorian Soul and the Dining Room is the one room in our townhouse that in my opinion, is the most Victorian looking room........

But before I go any further, I would like to explain my decision for decorating my home in the Victorian fashion.........

Several years ago, I realized that due to numerous health issues, traveling would no longer be something that I would be able to do....

So I decided to turn our 1970's townhouse into my very own vacation home......

I love the Victorian Era and would love nothing more then to stay in Victorian Bed and Breakfast Homes.......

So I decided that our home would become my very own Victorian Bed and Breakfast and I would then feel as if I was on vacation every time I walked through the front door.......


 In future posts, I will be sharing more of my Garden Themed Sitting Room......
 And my Garden chandy.......
Along with more tea cups....
Also in a future post, I will be sharing more of my faux fire place decorated for the Summer in  a Garden theme......
And how I decorated the hearth area of the fire place......
 So I hope you will be back to visit again soon.......

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

If you do not have a blog, PLEASE  give me some way to reply to your comment, maybe by including your email in your comment.  If I can not find a way to reach you, I will reply on the post where you commented so please check back......
