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!!!!

Gone to the Birds!!

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

Today, I will finally be sharing the "hearth" area of my faux fire place in my Sitting Room......

But first, I want to Thank Shelley, over at Calypso in the Country, for featuring my post, More Spring Bloom and a Surprise. from last week's The Best of the Weekend Link Party!!
Thanks so much, Shelley!!

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

A few weeks ago, I shared my Fairy Garden  that I set up on the "Mantle" of my faux fire place in my Sitting Room.....
Click HERE if you missed this post....

And in my last post, I shared how I re-did the Garden Wreath hanging on the door......
 Click HERE if you missed that post.....
I guess you can tell by now that I opted to stay with the Garden Theme that I first decided to do in this room for the Summer last year......

That being said, I also decorated the "hearth" of this faux fire place in a Garden theme but this year, I changed this up a bit......
I decided to add one of those stick on Puck lights that is battery operated to the top of the "hearth" area....
I have debated about this for some time now because I have used these in hutches and curios all over the house and I like the way they light up an area.....

 I can still use fairy lights here and there where I want to......

This is how it looked decorated for Christmas.....
 Okay, let's see what it looks like for the Summer.....
A seed packet ornament hangs in the middle and a sweet Fairy ornament hangs below it......
There is a mirror placed in the back of the "hearth".......
This year, except for 2 Fairies, I went with a Bird theme........

Joe gets all kinds of free things from all kinds of organizations that he donates to and last year and this year, he received a few cardboard coasters with birds on them......

I decided to use them.....
We'll start on the left side......
Last year, I glued these Thomas Kinkade pots.........
To wooden candlesticks that I painted white.........
 And filled them with some greenery..........

Each one is placed on each side of the "hearth""
I took a bird's nest and one of the Bird coasters into the greenery.......
Isn't the coaster pretty??????
I added another coaster on top of the clay pot that each planter is placed in......
A cute yellow bird from the Dollar Tree.....

You can see another coaster in the back........
On the side, is a Garden plaque bought at Dollar Tree.....
We'll take a look at the middle area now......
On top of a large white lantern........
Is a sweet Fairy.......
You can see her back reflected in the mirror.....
And on the rim of the lantern, is a toad stool, another bird coaster and a set of mini garden tools....
You can see the book case on the other side of the room also reflected in the mirror.......
Inside the lantern is a bird's nest filled with eggs........
I have a set of fairy lights tucked inside the lantern....
Over on the right side.......
 On the other side of the planter....
 
Again, I added a bird's nest and another Bird coaster.......
I also placed another coaster on top of the clay pot that this planter rest in......
And a bird from Dollar Tree..........

There is also a pink egg on each side.........
Another Garden plaque from Dollar Tree also hangs on this side......
In front of the "hearth".......
Is my little Teddy Bear Tea Party........

On each side are my son's Cabbage Patch dolls.........

This one was my son Jimmy's......
Papa Bear.......
A mini tea set sits in the table.......
2 more Bird coasters are displayed on each side of the table along with a sweet puppy......
Mama Bear.......
And my son Joey's Cabbage Patch doll......
And that is how I decorated this area for the Summer......
Soon, I will do a post showing how magical it all looks in the evening......
And I also will be showing more of the Garden touches that I added to this room......


We finally had a rain free weekend, the first one since the end of March!!!

No lie, all the local Meteorologist's on TV were making a big deal out of it and of course, there is rain predicted for Monday.....

Our back yard was over run by weeds because of all the rain we have had so Joe and I decided to attack the back yard and patio.......

We did the back yard on Saturday and the patio on Sunday......

Now all I still need to do is buy some annuals to plant in my pots which I plan on doing next week.....

I know, I am way behind....

And when I do that, I will post some pics.....

So I hope you will stop by to visit again soon!!
