Welcome to Debbie-Dabble Blog!!

 
I am so happy you decided to stop by!!
 
 
Just a reminder, I will be posting on Wednesdays and Sundays every week so be sure to check back on those days to see a new post......  

Today, I will be sharing my dear friend Anne Marie's home decorated for Winter....

In my last post, I shared my Winter/Valentine's Home Tour with 11 Decorated Trees......

And now for a few Personal Notes...
 

 On Sunday, I used some shredded chicken from a rotisserie chicken from Sam's Club to make Chicken Parm Sliders....



Joey and I enjoyed them but after only eating 2 of them, Joe deemed them "too messy" and that he did not want to "have to fight with his food to eat it"!

His loss as we finished the rest of them!!

Mr. Picky!!
 
You can find the recipe HERE over on the Blog, Lou Lou Girls!!! 
 
Thanks for sharing this great recipe, Ladies!!!
 
No Reheat and Eat Dinners this week as they are featuring Salmon, NY Strip Steak and Pork, none of which we like nor will eat.....
 

 
 In my last post, I mentioned that we got hit on Friday with an Ice Storm like this area has not seen before....
 
On Monday, even with temps. close to 30, we were still encased in Ice but the Sun was out....
 
I just had to take pictures of the Mountains that are located directly behind us with the Sun hitting all the ice on the trees.....

I took these pictures from different places throughout the apartment complex next to our development and also from the bottom of our hill.....











 
Over the roof tops of our townhouse development...


I took these pictures from the upstairs Sitting Room window of the ice on the trees behind us.....


 
And a Blue Jay in one of the trees....






The temps. hit close to 40 on Monday by the end of the day so most of the ice had melted and with temps. predicted to be in the 40's for the next few days, all the ice and snow that we had before should be gone...

We will not get the Sun in the front of our house until April but I did take some pictures of a fantastic Sunset ( Sun is setting in our back yard now) which colored the sky a pretty pinkish orange!!!

The Sun setting in the back of our house....




Coloring the sky in the front of our house...





 
So pretty!!


We will start the tour of Anne Marie's home at the front door.....

I gifted Anne Marie a sled just like mine which Joe bought from the Amish Farmer who sets up a Stand at the Mini Mart down the road from us in the Summer....

This is what she did with hers, which I just love....

The Tour will be in Anne Marie's own words.....

The sleigh that Debbie gave me from start to finish.

 
  
 
I displayed it on the seat of my hall tree with a pair of antique ice skates
 
 
 
 

I kept the fairies out on the sofa table minus the Christmas tree at the end

I didn’t put out any Valentine’s Day. 
 
Not sure if I’m even going to.
 
 I think this year I’m just going to leave everything out for Winter. 
 
I am enjoying all the snowmen!

And I sure hope you enjoyed this Tour of my friend Anne Marie's beautiful home all decked out for Winter....

Anne Marie works long hours in a local Eye Care Clinic so I applaud her for being able to keep up with decorating her home for the different Seasons and Holidays...

I know how hard it is to do so while working full time!!

Please let Anne Marie know how much you liked seeing her home by taking the time to leave a comment!!

We will both appreciate you doing so!!!


My next post will be on Saturday, February 12th, not Sunday as usual as  I was graciously invited by Katherine, over at Katherine's Corner, to join her and other bloggers, participating in her Valentine's Day on a Tray Blog Tour which she is hosting on Saturday, February 12th!!!

I am so excited as this is the first time I have been invited to join in on that type of Blog Hop!!
 

 The tray that I styled is part of a Valentine's tablescape...



So I hope you will stop by to visit again soon!!

Stay safe, healthy and most of all, HAPPY!!

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