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!!!!

Witch's Brew and Potion Station in the Dining Room, 2019

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

Today, I will be starting a series of posts sharing my Halloween decorations in our Dining Room, starting with what I am calling my Witch's Brew and Potion Station in the buffet.....

But first, I want to Thank the Creative Week  Hosts of the You're the Star Monthly Bog Hop, for choosing my post, I've Been Making Fall/ Halloween Ornaments ,as one of the Creative Week features from September's Monthly party!!!
Thanks so much to Colleen, over at Butterfly in the Attic, Darlene, over at Let It Shine, and Mel, over at Decor Craft Design!!

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

I only decorate the Dining Room in a Halloween theme so when I unpacked tubs and tubs of decorations, I realized it was time to weed out some decorations and make room for a few new ones Joe bought on Clearance last year....

Fortunately my niece Renae and her daughters Cortney, Caitlin and Carly gladly took 2 boxes of Halloween decorations off my hands leaving me some room to change things up a bit in the Dining Room this year....

In the corner by the Kitchen is the buffet......
On the wall......
A large Halloween Tussie Mussie that was gifted to me by a dear friend......
Halloween Skeleton people and a Jack O Lantern......
Skeleton Sam is sitting in the corner , surveying everything.....
He is looking quite dapper with his black bow tie.....
On the floor is a skull on top of a pumpkin and a bottle of candy eyeballs.....
In years past, I decorated the buffet in an Edgar Allen Poe theme......
I changed things up a bit this year......
I moved all the decorations that had an Edgar Allen Poe theme to a different area.....

Several years ago, I made a bunch of potion bottles.....
 I also made some spell books.......
Perfect for my Witch's Brew and Potion Station......
I placed a black spider web runner over the white lace one......
I will let the photos do most of the talking.....
 On a cake pedestal......
 In an antique sterling silver wedding basket.....
 Is a skull that I embellished with gemstones and a rhinestone trim......
On a shelf above the buffet......
A black twig tree with a crow and an owl perched in it.....
A Bride and Groom Skeleton couple and "Twisted Twigs" in a black frame....
More potion bottles and the spell books that I made......
On each side are Spell Book boxes that I bought in Dollar Tree this year.....
Sitting in a crystal compote, is a silver mercury glass pumpkin......
I embellished the pumpkin with orange rhinestone trim that I found in the Dollar Bins in Micheal's.....
I bought this great skeleton candelabra with bat wings in Gabes a few years ago.....
A silver bony hand holding a skull......
An orange moon with flying bats is on each end of the black spider web runner......
I hope you enjoyed seeing how I decorated the buffet this year for Halloween......
I want to also share this amazing Sunset that we had the other day......
And I want to mention that my marigolds finally bit the dust out in front of our house so Joe pulled them out and trimmed the shrubs in the flower bed underneath our Living Room window......
Joe bought these incredible mums at Wegman's ( of course) for only $4.99!!
So I am re- working the Fall decorations in front of our house.....
I will be posting a late Fall update on our front porch and yard decorations in a future post....

Last week, I worked all week long doing Fall House Cleaning and decorating in our bedroom for Christmas, which is as large as our Living Room, 16' x 20'!!

I want to give you a sneak peak of my Labors......

Joe's Pittsburgh corner......
 Joe's happy with it.....
I felt sorry for Joe since he only has one corner in our entire house and since this Wilkes Barre Scranton Pens throw is blue, which was the original colors of the Pittsburgh Penguins, and it matches our bedroom......
 I added it to our Antique bed which was Joe's Great Grandfather's.......

And I put up and decorated what I call my Victorian Lady Tree.....
 Yes, I now have the upstairs hall way, the bathroom and our bed room cleaned and decorated for Christmas!!

This week, I am working on the Sitting Room upstairs.....

Starting November 1st, I will start posting over on my Christmas Blog, A Debbie- Dabble Christmas....

In my next post on this Blog, I will be sharing my Halloween Tree and Vignettes in our Dining Room.....
  So I hope you will stop by to visit again soon!!

  7. Your Halloween decor is just amazing this year! I am not surprised to find out that you have got a lot of Christmas decorating done already.....I bet it was a lot easier this year with your new knee...lol! I haven't started yet, but I have made some notes and sketches for how I want to decorate for Christmas this year. My Grand daughter had her "reveal" party recently....I will be a great grandmother in January It's a girl, so we'll have 4 generations of girls then. hugs...

  8. Hi Deb: Another grand show for Halloween. I love your spell books and all the potions that go with them. Those mums are outstanding and I'm glad Joe has gotten a little slice of the pie. What a beautiful sky and thank you for your visit and kind comments. I am so sorry that I have taken so long to get back to you. I am still trying to play catch up after the power outage. That black and white ribbon with the red trim sounds pretty and something I would like if I can find it. I am not doing any Halloween decorations this year except the front door for trick or treats. But, I will let you in on a little secret that no one else knows. Watch for me next week and you might find something you like..Happy Thursday..xxoJudy
