Fall/Halloween Home Tour, 2019

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

I had such a great time decorating for Fall and Halloween this year!!!

It was great not having to worry about hurrying up and getting  done because I had to go to work.....

Loving Retirement!!

Today, I will be posting my Fall/Halloween Home tour.....

But first, I want to Thank Rebecca, over at Zucchini Sisters, for choosing my post, Halloween Vignettes,as one of her features from last week's Celebrate Your Story Link Party!!

I also want to Thank Barb, over at French Ethereal, for choosing my post,  Halloween Tablescape,
From last week's Share Your Style Link Party!!
Thanks so much, Barb!!

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

I hosted a Family Fall/ Halloween Get Together and had some friends over for lunch and had fun doing some tablescapes......
I even decorated my other house, Nelson Crest, my Victorian Doll House , for Halloween!!
Since I did not do the Harvest Tea at our church this year because I thought I would be having my knee surgery in October as originally planned, I hosted a lunch this past week for 2 good friends of ours.....
I served a Danny's Favorite Hoagie from Wegman's that I cut into 6 pieces.....
And 2 Turkey and Provolone wraps that i also cut into small pieces....
They were a big hit!!
For dessert, I served home made zucchini bread, banana bread and chocolate chip cookies......

Here we are trying to get in position for Joe to take our picture!!
Patty, in the middle , had a Hip Replacement in January.....
 And Mary on the right is a nurse and had to go to work for 3-11pm shift that day......
 Hence her cute Halloween scrub top!!

And they gifted me this charming tiered server!!
 So pretty!!!
 I already have lots of ideas about how I will use this for Christmas!!!
 We had a great time catching up and plan to do lunch more often!!

I hope you had a great Fall Season and a Happy Halloween!!!

We actually had a beautiful Fall here....

We usually go right from Summer with temps. in the 80's into winter with temps. dropping into the 30's and 40's but this year we have experienced a nice slow decline of the temps. and not too much rain....

But Fall is still not over so I will be sharing my late Fall  Front Porch and Yard before I re-decorate it for Christmas in about 2 weeks......
So I hope you will stop by 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!!

  1. I bet you'll get lots of trick or treaters at your house tonight! Who could resist?

  2. I love how you make so many things festive. Happy Halloween!

  3. It looks like you are having fun with your friends and retirement Debbie. Happy Halloween.

  4. Your home is so beautifully decorated. The trick or treaters must be so happy to go to your home. Happy Halloween!

  5. Your decorations are fantastic, Debbie, I can only imagine the fun you had putting them up, and enjoying them.
    Thank you for sharing.

  6. Hi Deb: Everything looks great and I have always said that your home at night is just beautiful. You always get the lighting perfect. Thanks for your visit. Here is a link to the dining room https://judyatgoldcountrycottage.blogspot.com/2018/11/our-harvest-home-part-one_6.html. This was last year's post and it is about all I have shown of the whole room. It is a big room but the way things are situated it is hard to get far enough away to get a good pic and I can't move much any differently as there are 4 doors in and out of the room and since there are no hallways in this old house it is the main thoroughfare for getting into the kitchen from the rest of the house. I've got big stuff planned for Christmas so you might get a little better peek..We are having such beautiful weather now that, hopefully, we will be keeping our power on a little longer this time, but we can never be sure..Happy Weekend my friend..xxoJudy

  7. I love the haunting tree. The amber and orange glow the lights put off are so pretty. I think I would just sit on the front porch with a coffee and enjoy the surroundings.
    Food looks so good! A good time was had I am sure.

  8. Well, it's impossible to pick a favorite picture or room or piece of decor, but I will say that the photos of your home and porch at night, with all the lights, are really impressive! How fun it would be to visit you!

  9. I have just one question, where do you find the energy to do all of this decorating? Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us at the Creative Muster. Looking forward to seeing what you’ll be sharing next week. Pinning!

  10. Thank you for sharing at #OverTheMoon. Pinned and shared. Have a lovely week. I hope to see you at next week’s party too!

  11. Thank you for sharing at #ThursdayFavoriteThings. Pinned and shared. Have a lovely week. I hope to see you at next week’s party too!

  12. I really like how you decorate that Christmas tree for the different holidays and seasons. That's a great idea. And I love the fall colors you have outside, especially the potted plants.

  13. Fabulous, as always, Debbie! Thank you for sharing at Party In Your PJ's.

  14. It looks like a fun luncheon. All your fall and Halloween is amazing.

  15. Debbie you have worked and worked to deck every inch of your home with the most colorful and festive fall decor! You have so many fun treasures that I would love to just stroll around and enjoy. Of course the doll house with all the miniatures is always favorite of mine. Your fall flowers look lovely too!

    Thank you so much for sharing at All About Home and TFT. Happy Thanksgiving!
