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, not a huge Mega Mansion, with my Hubby Joe. I recently went Part Time after working full time night shift as an RN on a Hospital based Rehabilitation( Physical Medicine) Unit for 32 years and have been in nursing for 38 years!

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

Newly Crafted Patriotic Ornaments, 2017

Welcome!!

I wanted to share with you some ornaments that I made and some that I embellished to use for my Patriotic Summer Tree in the Living Room!!

I have been going through all my Craft supplies and creating things for myself since I decided to no longer be a Crafter at local craft fairs for now......

So when I found a small tub of things that could be used for Patriotic ornaments, I thought I better do some "dabbling" with them before I take down my Patriotic Summer Tree!!

I will be linking up this post to the Christmas in July Party because it shows how you can decorate a "Tree" for other seasons and Holidays!!
 I bought these paper mache stars when our local A.C.Moore store went out of business and closed......
I spray painted them blue.........

I had some patriotic flag toothpicks left over from when I used them to decorate my Victorian doll house......
 I cut the flags off the toothpicks and then decoupaged them on to the stars......
I then glued a red tinsel trim, white beads and red and silver stars to the ornaments.......
I used blue velvet ribbon to create the ornament hanger.......
I did not have enough flags for the last blue star so I used some white paint to highlight the star and then glued on the red tinsel trim, white beads and red and silver stars......
I also had 2 flat paper mache stars.......

So I painted them white and added the trim and beads and stars........
I also glued vintage looking Patriotic tags onto each one........
I had 3 bags of stars....red, blue and silvers ones so I decided to embellish a few plain ornaments that I already had on the Tree......
I also had a blue felt star trim in my stash so I embellished a few more ornaments using the trim........
 Joe received these 2 Patriotic coasters through the mail for donating to a Veteran's group so I decided to make them into ornaments!!
 You can see how the one on the left looked before I embellished it.......
 So here are some of the ornaments that I "dabbled" with.......
And here they are on the Tree.........
Let's take a closer look........
I will probably be "un-decorating" this Tree at the end of July and decorating it differently for the remainder of the Summer but I am going to leave that a secret until I finish it.......

In my next post, I will continue with my Summer Kitchen Series.......
  So I hope you will be back to visit again soon.......

Summer Kitchen, Part 2, 2017

Welcome!!

Today, I will be sharing Part 2 of my Summer Kitchen Series........

But first, I want to thank Bev, over at Eclectic Red Barn, for featuring my post, Summer Patriotic Doll House, from last week's Thursday Favorite Things Linky Party!!
Thanks so much, Bev!!

In my last post, I shared what I call the focal wall in my Kitchen......
In my post, Summer Kitchen, Part 1, I shared the top half, above the chair rail, of this wall.......
 Click HERE if you missed that post......

In the previous post, I did not include the desk area of the Hutch......
Or the area below the chair rail....
I will be sharing those areas in this post.......

Let's start to the left of the hutch.......
A vintage wash board hangs on the wall.....
 A floral arrangement of red and yellow roses with LED lighted branches fill a vintage yellow milk can that I bought at a yard sale for $5.00 many years ago......
 On the floor is a red and white enamel pot with greenery, a vintage door stop and an iron..........
  Back over to the hutch.......
The desk area is ready for Summer........
With the lamp off, we can see better......
A hob nail vintage milk glass lamp.........
A green depression glass dessert dish with a pastry candle inside of it.......

More vintage pieces..........

A tray with strawberries on it..............
  A vintage pitcher and glasses.......
Vintage canning jars.......

A vintage red and white plate with a faux cherry pie on it.......
A copper planter filled with flowers......
Looks ready for a Summer picnic with the red and whie checked place mat............
The lower part of the desk.......
On top of a vintage metal picnic basket........
A copper tray and copper lantern.......
 Copper never went out of style in my Kitchen!!

Another vintage canning jar filled with faux fruit......
 A vintage looking tin and an old Heinz Ketchup bottle......
Over on the right side of the hutch.........
And old chalkboard and a rug beater and canning jar with flowers in it hangs from a vintage style hook.......
I hoped you enjoyed seeing my Country Victorian with a touch of Vintage style in the Kitchen......
In my next post, I will be sharing more vintage items in the Kitchen......
