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!!!!

Patriotic Tree #3 and Patriotic Crafting!!

Welcome!!!

Today, I will be sharing Patriotic Tree #3 and some Patriotic Crafts that I have made...

In previous posts, I have shared Patriotic Tree #1..........
 Click HERE if you missed that post.......

How I decorated the corner of the Living Room where the Tree is displayed............
 Click HERE if you missed that post........

I also shared Patriotic Tree #2 and my Patriotic "Mantle"......
Click HERE if you missed that post.....

I also decorated this corner of the Living Room by the stairs for the Summer Patriotic Holidays......
 But first, I want to Thank Mary Beth, over at The How To Home, for choosing my post,  Summer Flowers in the Front Yard, as one of her choices for 11 Modern Farmhouse Inspired Projects, from last week's Project Inspired Link Party!!!
 Thanks so much, Mary Beth!!!

I also want to thank Bev, over at  Eclectic Red Barn, and Heidi, over at Heidi's Wanderings, for choosing my post, The "Mothers" in my Home, as one of their features from last month's You're The Star Link Party!!!
 
 Thanks so much Bev and Heidi, who are the Home Week Hosts!!!

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

I like to decorate this LED branch Tree for various Holidays and Seasons........
But first, let's take a look around the Tree........

On a wicker stool inside of a vintage peach bowl and pitcher is a Patriotic floral arrangement that I did......
Red, white and blue flowers, white baby's breath and a flag......
This is Patriotic Tree #3!!
I decorated it with red, blue and silver ball ornaments.........
I also wrapped red, blue and silver star wired garland around the Tree........
The Tree sits on a marble topped table........
At the base of the Tree is another floral arrangement that I did in a pot bought at Dollar Tree......
I used some Patriotic stickers to decorate the pot.....
In looking at this now, I realize that I forgot to wrap a piece of fabric around the base of the Tree......
Here is a look from the side, when you first walk in the front door........
I decorate the stairs a bit too........
Hanging on the wall, is a cute Patriotic Doll that I bought several years ago at an Estate Sale.......
I decided to "dabble" a bit and glam her up a bit......
I added a new bow made from Patriotic ribbon.........
I embellished her hat with a bow and some ribbon roses........

I also added some red and blue buttons, bows and ribbon roses to her dress......
I wanted to clear out some of my stash of crafts and thought this was the perfect way to use some things up.......


On the stairs beneath the Doll is a flag that when turned on plays Patriotic music and appears to wave in the breeze.......
 I always have these 3 lanterns on the stairs and change the bows on them according to whatever Holiday or Season that I have the room decorated for .........
I had several rolls of Patriotic ribbon that I bought from Dollar Tree so I made bows for each lantern using 2 different types of ribbon........

The lantern on the top is  slightly larger than the other 2........
The middle one.....
The one on the bottom step......
The candles in the lanterns are red, white and blue when lit.......
 I hope you enjoyed seeing how I decorated this corner of the Living Room.......
And Patriotic Tree #3......
 So now you have seen my 3 Patriotic Trees in our Living Room........

I have also been doing a bit of crafting, trying to use up some of the craft supplies in my stash......

I made 2 more Patriotic plaques and decided to hang them here on the mirror in the Living Room.......
The one in the middle I made a few years ago.......
The 2 on each side of it are new.........

I painted a wooden plaque red, glued on a vintage style card that I bought on Ebay several years ago and embellished it with trim and ribbon roses......
I did the same with the other one and also adding 2 blue stars to embellish it......
You may remember in a previous post that I shared this sweet Lady Liberty Bear and a Patriotic Card that I displayed next to it.......
I also "Dabbled" a bit with each of them......
I glued the card to a wooden plaque that I painted red and embellished it with trim and ribbon roses........
And I also decided to glam up Lady Liberty a bit.......
I added some red and blue half moon gems to the stars on her hat.......
I dressed up her sash by gluing parts of the card that I cut off to the sash!!
And I decided to dress up her skirt by adding red and white ribbon roses and blue and red half moon gems to it........
And white and red roses to her sleeves......
I like the difference that it made........


What gave me the idea to glam up Lady Liberty and this Patriotic Doll........
Was this Patriotic Doll that I recently bought at a church Flea Market for $3.00!!!!!
After I spruced her up a bit........
I decided to do the same to the other ones.........

In my next post, I will be sharing my some Patriotic Decor that I added to this area in the Den......
  Including this Patriotic Doll who got a make over.........
 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!!
