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!!!!

Winter/Valentine's in the Powder Room 2018

Welcome!!

Sorry I have been missing in action but with Joe falling and fracturing a rib and now having what could possibly be 3 bones fractured in his left wrist, it has been a busy week filled with Dr.'s visits and of course, I also worked a 3 day stretch......

Joe is feeling better as far as the rib fracture goes and now has his left wrist splinted for at least 3-4 weeks so that means he is not able to work at his part time job as a cashier at Wegman's right now......

He will be Xrayed in 2 weeks to see of the bones in his wrist look better or worse which we are told can happen with wrist fractures.......

Today, I will finally be sharing how I changed over the Powder Room from Christmas to Winter and Valentine's decorations......

As I have mentioned before, I leave up Valentine's decor for almost the entire month of February as it has been deemed American Heart Month by the American Heart Association.......

But first, I want to Thank Bev, over at Eclectic Red Barn , and the other hosts of the Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop for featuring my post, Pink Valentine's Decor in the Dining Room, as one of the Very Popular posts from last week's party!!

Please stop by this lovely party and link up!!

I decorate the Powder Room for Christmas and Winter mainly with Snow Buddies.......

I removed anything having to do with Christmas from the Powder Room.........

And I added a few Valentine's touches.......

Over by the sink.......
I added a red bottle brush tree with a ruffled heart trim around the pot to this shelf.....
2 silver hearts hang from the shelf.......
I used an Amazon gift card to buy this set of 3.........


Here's where I used them.........

This one hangs  next to a Valentine's wreath that I made......
I hung another one by the sink......
You can also see that I added these plates on the sink for Winter along with the Soap sign......

I made a few changes over here in the corner.......
You may remember Joe bought this in Bed, Bath and Beyond after Christmas......
 Here it is on top of this shelf unit.....
I removed any ornaments from the Tree that had to do with Christmas........
And added red and silver heart ornaments.....
I changed some things around on this shelf and added a Valentine Snow Buddy......
Another Valentine Snow Buddy and a vase with red roses grace the top of this stand.....
"The Queen of Everything"
I replaced the Santa's on the glass shelves with 2 silver Mercury Glass battery operated Trees.......
And tucked red roses into the greenery.......
I also added another red bottle brush tree to the top of this shelf.....
And replaced some Snow Buddies with some Valentine's ones ......
A Mercury Glass Silver heart was added here.....
Hearts were hung from the sconces......
And a Valentine's Wreath that I made was hung on the door......
  In the hallway from the Living Room to the Kitchen, on the mirror........
Hangs a Heart Wreath that I made........
Along with a heart plaque......
And a Winter one that I also made.....
And that finishes up my Winter and Valentine's Decorations.............

Next week, I will start to take down my Winter and Valetnine's decorations.........

I am not sure what and when I will be sharing next but I hope you will be back to visit again soon.......

And thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!

Red and Gold Valentine's Vignettes for American Heart Month 2018

Welcome!!

I know Valentine's Day has passed but I keep up my Valentine's and Winter decor until the end of Feb. because it is American Heart Month as deemed by the American Heart Association......

How did I spend my Valentine's Day..........

In the Urgent Care with Joe in the afternoon......

We had some unexpected Freezing Rain during the night so on the morning of the 14th, I called Joe to put some Ice Melt down so I could get out of the car and make it into our house, after working all night, with out falling.......

Only Joe fell on the ice......

Long story short, when he wanted to be seen by a Dr. , I knew something was wrong because Joe is Dr. Phobic!!

He has a hairline fracture of the 7th rib on the left and chipped a bone in his left wrist.

We were concerned about his back because Joe has severe Osteoporosis and has already had 2 compression fractures in his back and receives yearly infusions of Reclast to try to increase the density of his bones........

Thank Goodness his back is okay but he is in a lot of pain because of the rib fracture.

He will be seeing an Orthopedic Hand Specialist and Surgeon about his wrist , which is in a splint but is hardly bothering him.....

So for right now, his career as a cashier at Wegman's is on hold until he heals and I am playing nurse at home now too on my days off.......

So I am a bit late in doing this post........

I want to share with you a more detailed look at some of the decorations on our Living Room which I did in a red and gold theme for Valentine's ........

On the marble topped plant stand near the front door......
 I filled the bottom of this hurricane candle with red and gold ornaments and tied a red rope chord around it......
 On each side of the candle are embellished heart boxes.....
Surrounding the apothecary jar below, on a gold tray, is a red rose garland that I cut into a candle ring with gold roses tucked into it......
Another red rope chord hangs from the top of the jar......

On the front door, hangs an embellished heart that I made......
I added a few red touches to the hutch in what I call the foyer......
On each side of the hutch, red velvet roses were added to existing vignettes......
Along with a small red ornament......
The top of the hutch was decorated for Valentine's.......
The garland and the lights on it  stay there all year.......
I left out the gold LED battery operated trees from Christmas.......
A few Valentine's items are displayed on each side of the top of the hutch........

With red rose velvet garland with gold roses tucked in and a vintage styled Love sign in the center......
I added a few red touched to the inside of the hutch......
Red ornaments and red glittered rose ornaments......
Also in this hutch are a collection of angels........
Iris  Herringbone Depression Glass......
Along with several pieces of aqua colored glassware.....
Gold glittered candle holders......
A vintage crystal sugar and creamer set that was Joe's Grandmother's.....
And Gold mercury glass votives.......
I added a few red touches to existing vignettes on the tables in the Living Room........
Along with a few vintage styled Valentine's cards......
I will let the photos do most of the talking......
The box with a heart on it is one of a set of 3 that I just bought on Amazon using a gift card from my son that I received for Christmas......
A vintage Valentine......
A heart garland and wreath......
Vintage styled Valetuine's slates.......
I hope you enjoyed seeing more of my Valetnine's decor........

In my next post, I will be sharing how I changed the Powder Room over from Christmas to Winter with a bit of Valentine's........
So I hope you will be back to visit again soon.......

And thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!
