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!!!!

In Part 2, I shared this area of the Kitchen........
If you missed this post, please click HERE........

Today, I will be sharing what's on top of the refrigerator and the shelf above the counter bar........
Let's start with the top of the refrigerator........
I do have a lot of vintage Kitchen items including a lot of canning jars.......
A vintage cherry pie plate........
A green handled egg beater hangs from the shelf....
A reproduction vintage style clock is on the wall in the corner........
A vintage looking ceramic plaque hangs below the clock.......
Now we will move over to the wall that borders the Dining Room........
This is the area above the counter bar......
On this long shelf, I have displayed a few vintage and reproduction Kitchen pieces........




I'll give you a closer look........

I recently added some vintage syl spice bottles to the shelf......
The vintage style canisters were bought at The Christmas Tree Shop a few years ago......

A vintage egg plate with matching salt and pepper shakers......
A vintage pitcher......
More vintage pieces........ A tole tray, roosters and an egg cup!!!
An Uncle Ben's can from a neighbor........
A vintage sifter and a martini shaker filler with pasta!!!!
A neighbor gave me this vintage Chlorox bottle!!!  How cool is that!!!!!
The vintage Beer Tray from Standard Brewing Co, here in Scranton was my Dad's......
I bought the rooster salt and pepper shakers at a yard sale......
The starch canister was bought at The Christmas Tree Shop.......
And more vintage style items on this end of the shelf.......
This shelf is above the pass through to the dining room which I have blocked by creating a fake window with a piece of stained glass, shutters and a valance.......
3 different garland is hung on the valance.........
A floral garland, a feed sack garland and an apple garland........
In the center, hangs an egg wreath that I actually bought a few years ago at Micheal's after Easter one year for 90% off!!!!
I'll keep this up until the Fall......
A white valance provides a nice back drop for the garlands and wreath.......
I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my vintage Kitchen treasures.......

In future posts, I will be sharing a few more vintage items in my Kitchen....
 And I will also be sharing what I have been crafting to use to decorate the 6 foot white Tree in our Living Room for the remainder of the Summer.......

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.......
