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 37 years!

Friday, March 30, 2012


First, I just want to say that I came up with the solution to not being able to list all the blogs that I follow on my Blog Roll. It seems that Blogger would not let me list anymore than 167 blogs.

So I discovered that you can add a second blog roll as a separate gadget. So the Blogs I follow are now listed alphabetically in 2 different Blog Rolls. I did not want to slight anyone. However, if you Blog is dormant for several months, I will still follow you but delete it from my Blog Roll .

AND PLEASE, GET RID OF THE WORD VERIFICATION!!!!! Instructions on how to do this is on my side bar, click on the link!!!! I need new glasses and until I can get them, that word verification is killing my vision!!


Just when you thought that I was finished showing you all of my Easter Decorations......

I finally made myself one of these Bunny Wreaths.

In my previous post, I showed you this Bunny Wreath that I made to decorate my department at work.

It apparently was quite a hit because I just finished making 9 of them for co-workers and one for myself!!

I thought it would look nice on my Fake Window in my Living Room.....

Next to my Living Room Easter Tree....

Because of making all these wreaths in less than a week, I am so sorry that I have not had much time to visit with all of you. Please forgive me!
And as I said before, I am apparently in the Wreath Business now as I already have orders for 7 Patriotic Wreaths, sight unseen!! Plus 2 that I will make for my department at work...

I have one more Easter vignette in my Den that I want to share with you....

This cute little Easter tree was a flea market buy for $1.00. The pot that it was in originally was not working so I cut down the styrofoam base and bought a little pot at the Dollar Store, added some moss and a bunny and a few eggs....

I moved these cute Bunnies that I had on top of my China Cupboard......

The nest came from the Christmas Tree Shop last year...

I want to THANK Kathy over at A Delightsome Life for choosing my Post ,
Easter Decorations, Part 2 , which is my Dining Room decorated for Easter, as one of the Features from her Home and Garden Party last week. Please stop by and check out her Home and Garden party!

I also want to THANK Jan of Maison Newton who again has mentioned Debbie-Dabble in one of her posts, To Thine Own Self, Be True! I love Jan's brutal but very refreshing honesty and the way she writes on her blog as if she was sitting down and talking to you!! Please stop by and pay her a visit!!Thanks so much , Kathy and Jan!! I am so very honored and flattered!

I even have Nelson Crest all decked out for Easter and the upcoming Summer months....

The garden is blooming....

Milk was just delivered....

Flowers are blooming on pots on the porches....

And the Bunnies are frolicking!!

And on to Magazine Reviews!

I want to share some new magazines I have picked up......
The Spring Issue of Romantic Country is by far, in my opinion
, the best issue in years!

This issue is filled with everything that I have been missing in all the current Magazines.

I hope this is an indication that styles are changing and returning to a more softer and romantic look rather than the sleek pared down look that has been popular lately!

I will let these pictures from the magazine do the talking!

Please click on pics to enlarge and enjoy!

Spring 2012 Issue of Victorian Homes

So many Beautiful Homes and Gardens.....

And what a delight to see Blogger friend Richard Cottrell's My Old Historic House featured for the second time in Victorian Homes magazine!!

Congrat's to Richard on such an honor!!

And also many gardens are featured!!

Premier Issue of Vintage Style is packed with all kinds of Eye Candy!

I love all the Garden features!

I would recommend these magazines to all of you and NO, I am not getting paid for my seal of approval!!

No, that is not snow on these trees even though at 22 degrees the other morning when I took these pics, it could have snowed!!The blooms on these trees are bigger and brighter than I can ever remember. They are all around the Mall next to my house ......

They are all over the area close to my home and look stunning!!

And last, I have been meaning to share this with all of you for some time but kept forgetting.

This was a tablescape from our church's Harvest Tea several years ago.

My friend Peggy chose a Pink and Silver theme that I thought was just stunning.
Sorry that the pics are a bit blurry as these pictures were taken before I bought my first digital camera.

The pink roses were velvet and all the silver pieces came from the Dollar Store!

This was her serving table and the silver piece was a Thrift Store Find!

Well, that definitely was a little bit of everything, wouldn't you say???

Health Update:

My Nuclear scan of the Thyroid is scheduled for next Friday, 4/6. I need to go and get the pill to ingest that contains the radioactive Isotope on Thursday morning and then be scanned on Friday.
Joe will find out when his foot surgery will be scheduled on Wednesday, 4/4.

As for my IBS, what do you do when you can't eat hardly anything??You lose close to 15 pounds!! I need to lose a lot of weight but didn't plan on doing it this way.....

So that is what is new....
