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 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!!!!!

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

Vintage Suitcases and Transferware

 Welcome to Debbie-Dabble Blog!!
I am so happy you decided to stop by!!

A few posts ago, I shared how I decorated the China Cupboard in the Den using Transferware.....

In the first post, I shared the top of the China Cupboard.....
 Click HERE if you missed it........

In the second post, I shared how I decorated the inside of the China Cupboard with my collection of Transferware dishes......
Click HERE if you missed this post......

Before I go any further, I want to Thank Jennifer. over at Life Tales Books and Personal Publishing,
 for featuring my post, How I Love Transferware Dishes, from last week's Heart and Soul Linky Party!!!
 Thanks so much, Jennifer!!!

I also want to Thank Angelina, over at Petite Haus, for also featuring the same post, from last week's Thursday Favorite Things Party!!
 Thanks so much, Angelina!!

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

Today, I want to share the last area of the China Cupboard ........
 The area around the bottom and side of it......
 I have 2 vintage suitcases placed underneath the China Cupboard that I like to use for display.........
  Since the color theme of the Den is blue, burgundy and beige, the pieces of red and blue transferware dishes fit in beautifully I think........
I have also used several other items in these same colors.......
There is a small table next to the chair.....
 On top of the table........
Is a crock filled with a floral arrangement that I made......
On top of the table is a wooden heart that I glued a candle to and a few blue and white ornaments.......
The card propped against the crock says.......

"Come and share a pot of Tea, my home is warm ad my friendship's free!!!
Beneath the small table is a cute little plaid chair......
A sweet little bear is sitting in the chair.....
Since I will not be able to decorate for the Patriotic Holidays of the Summer, this area already had a bit of Patriotic tones to it.....
On top of the two vintage suitcases.......
On the top suitcase........
 The Patriotic beach houses were bought a few years ago at Pier One......
On the side of this house is a mini blue and white china tea set......
On the other side of the beach house......
The marking on the bottom of the saucer.......
There is no marking on the cup.....
Over on the other side.......
Is the other beach house......
On the bottom suitcase......
The sugar bowl did not have a lid so I placed a few flowers inside of it that I bought at a flea market that were made of panty hose.....
Both the sugar bowl and the dish next to it have this marking on it......

The lid standing up against the top suitcase .........
Is from the covered casserole that I used on top of the China Cupboard to hold a bird cage.....
The red, white and blue bottle brush trees were also bought at Pier One......
The marking on the bottom of the saucer and tea cup set.......
An Uncle Sam like cute little guy......
. On the side of the China Cupboard.......
There used to be a small corner shelf hanging on the wall next to the China Cupboard but I donated it to Salvation Army......
 The corner now has a cleaner look.....
I filled the red truck with some greenery.....
I placed a large crock in the corner, placed a blue transferware dinner plate on top of it and then placed this sweet Patriotic doll that I bought last year at a church flea sale......
I embellished her a little bit last year......
This area is going to stay this way for the Summer.......

I hope you enjoyed seeing how I used transferware to decorate this area of the Den......
 I finally have the entire downstairs now void of Holiday and Seasonal decor.......

I do still have to un-decorate the upstairs as it is still decorated for Christmas but this is not unusual because I usually do this in March........

I will be glad when I get that done......

With my knee, it has been a struggle but I am taking it slow......

I pretty much am confined to the house as walking anywhere is very painful for me.....

I still have 5 weeks to go before my surgery so I do want to start a few craft projects.....

I do plan to share what I have been doing in the house so I hope you will be back to visit again soon.......

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......

  1. That is very patriotic looking. I could not do that as my three year old grand doll would be into all of it. I love those dishes!

  3. That's quite a collection of Transferware you have! It's lovely. I also love those vintage suitcases! I have seen a few of those here and there, and I always consider buying them. I'm just not sure where I would put them. The little red truck is fabulous, as well. Thanks for sharing at Sweet Inspiration!

  4. We have a couple of vintage suitcases like these pictured and I like how you're show casing them. I might steal the idea someday to use in our home. ;) Have a great week!

  7. I always enjoy seeing your treasures. I am so glad you have a countdown for you knee surgery. I had a shot of cortisone in my L knee almost 2 weeks ago and it is better; so thankful it still works for me. It is a joy to walk up stairs foot over foot again. Although it will be uncomfortable, you will feel so much better afterward!

    1. Kathy,
      Thanks so much for stopping by!! The cortisone shots worked for me for a good many years but I guess after 6 years, it was time!!
      Hugs,
      Deb

  8. It's always fun to see what you are up to, and I put a few more Christmas items downstairs to storage this week myself. Love your transfer ware and who can't use a vintage suitcase, though they don't show up very often anymore!
