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 36 years before it closed in November of 2018 and have been a nurse for over 40 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 will be officially retiring very soon....

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

Indoor Fairy Garden Mantle


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

I thought that since I have been posting a lot about the projects that I have been doing the Kitchen, I would give you a break from the Kitchen and share my Indoor Fairy Garden Mantle in the Sitting Room.......

But before I go any further, I want to Thank Nina, over at Vintage Mama's Cottage, for featuring my post, Rooster Kitchen Art, from Thursday Favorite Things party!!!
Thanks so much, Nina!!  And thanks so much for telling me about the feature as I am so embarrassed to so that I missed it!!!!

Thanks to Bev, over at Eclectic Red Barn, for featuring my post, Last Year's Easter Decorations, from last week's Thursday Favorite Things Party!!!
Thanks again, Bev!!

And I also want to Thank Amy, over at Health, Home and Heart, for featuring my post, Summer "Treat" Tree,  as the Most Clicked On from last week's Sweet Inspiration Link Party!!!
Thanks so much, Amy!!

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

Last year, I decided to decorate the Sitting Room upstairs in a Garden theme for the Summer months.....

The Sitting Room was my son Jim's room and at first, I had made it into a Guest Room, leaving his single bed in there, but then I realized that in 40 years of marriage and living in our townhouse, we have NEVER had any guests!!!!
 Joe then mentioned that if we ever would have guests, there is a hotel that was recently built right by us and that they are welcome to stay there!!!

So I got rid of the single bed, bought a swivel rocker recliner for myself, moved my collection of books into the room and I rechristened the room, my Sitting Room!!!
I hope to spend a lot more time in here now that I am no longer working!!

Better pull up a chair and get a drink of your choosing because this is going to be a long post, heavy on photos!!!!

I have amassed quite a bit of Fairy Garden things and I do have 2 tubs outside on the back patio where I create a Fairy Garden in a galvanized tub.......
 And a Gnome Garden in a beverage tub.....
 Yes, I have managed to get them set up and ready for the Summer so I can enjoy them after having my surgery......

Last year, I thought it would be fun to have a Fairy Garden in the house so I decided to create one on the mantle of my faux fire place in the Sitting Room......
This "fire place" is the one I made over from a piece of furniture that came from one of my MIL's neighbor's houses......
 If you missed that post, you can read about the transformation HERE....

This is how it looked decorated for Christmas this year......
 And now for the Summer........
The floral border really lends to the Garden Theme for the Summer......
 Above the "mantle"......
An old Home Interiors mirror that I painted white......
Sconces that I "framed" with old Home Interiors pictures that I took the pictures out of.....
I had to get some sort of Victorian decor in.......
My Home Interior Victorian Lady plaques.........They are strolling the Garden!!!
"In my Garden, Love Grows"......
I'll mention the leaf plaques a bit later......
If you look hard, you can see the reflection of a chandy and my tea cup shelf in the mirror......
On the sides of the mirror.......
On the left side......
I clipped pink butterfly ornaments that I bought a few years ago on Clearance in Walmart after Christmas to the leaf branch plaques.....
I hung a vintage hand mirror.....
On the other side......
The vintage plate that I hung belonged to my Mother.......
Let's take a look at my Fairy Garden......
 Most of the Fairy items, I bought at Big Lot's but I did also buy some thing at Michael's!!!
We will start over on this side......
 I left the crystal cake stands out after Christmas.....
A Vintage crystal candle holder rests on the cake stand.....
A cute Fairy and a Tree House.....
Another Fairy and a covered bridge......
A sweet purple Fairy house.....
The stained glass lantern was once a solar lit one that I used outside and when it failed as a solar light, I brought in inside and add a string of fairy lights inside of it to light it.....
More sweet Fairies and one more house.....
I attached a clip on yellow butterfly, bought at Dollar Tree, to the LED lit white branch tree.....
A lighted cottage plate that I bought many, many years ago.....

I strung a battery operated set of colored LED lit flower lights.....
In the center of the "mantle"......
I placed a wooden pedestal in the center of the "mantle".....
On top of the pedestal, is a Fairy Garden Tea Cup that I bought at Big Lot's a few years back.....
On top of the tea cup is another Fairy House.....
A cute little Fairy swinging on the Swing....
2 toadstools sit in front of the house.....
More Fairies....

Underneath the pedestal......
A Garden arch and bench.......
A cute card with a gazebo on it stands behind the bench.....
 To the right, is a lighted Victorian House plate......
On the right side of the "mantle"......
A pink hummingbird is clipped on to the LED lit branch tree on this side......
Another failed solar lit lantern with fairy lights inside of it.....
More cute Fairy Land items.....
A darling pink Fairy house.....
Another crystal cake stand.....
And another crystal candleholder, one more Fairy and a pair of toadstools......
And one more Fairy House that I bought at Dollar General last year..

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Indoor Fairy Garden that I created on the "Mantle" in my Sitting Room!!!
In the future, I will be sharing how magical it looks lit up in the evening!!!

I will also be sharing the "Hearth" area of the fireplace too.......
So I hope you will stop by to visit again soon!!

  4. Tooooooooo much stuff. I'm sorry if that offends but the eye has no place to rest. Every inch of space is taken up with something. This is only one person's opinion. Carry on.
