My Teacup Collection


Hello sweet friends!

I've been somewhat busy with mother going to various Dr. check ups, specially the Ophthalmologist as she's got a problem with her left eye, she hardly sees from that one. Then later for her Varicose Veins and she's going under a treatment where they place injections in her veins too.
 
She's better, but I'm still at it.

We are going on our regular three hour ride to our DD Sofia's house this Friday, to wait for the arrival from Madrid, via Miami of our DD Alex, husband and baby Maxima who is now eight months old.

I always wanted to share my teacups, as a collection, all gathered together, as I did a few months ago with my teapots.

I placed the cuties on top of my French vintage marble table in the foyer.

Most belong to my 'chinas' and maybe five are single.  I should make a point to buy them alone to really collect them.

Ok, with that said, here they are.

Here are these cuties, which 95% belong to chinas.

I said at the beginning that I should make a point to collect teacups alone, because most belong to my set of dishes and tea sets.

I think most of the friends that follow me might recognize the pottery ones made at our past Ceramic Co. because they are 'very decorated' by hand; like the one here, up front, the one behind it and the one at your left.



I wanted to share this gorgeous orchid my friend Stephanie gave me as a gift the day I made the tea for her DD Christina and Stephanie's debut as a grandma!






The table where I am displaying the teacups is a vintage French, marble top foyer table. She's flanked by hubby's grandfather's antique chest and my black Asian secretary I love.

The ones with all the decorations are from our former Ceramic Co.

Thank you so much for your sweet and kind comments, you always make my day!

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties too.


LOVE,
FABBY

Tea Party for a New Grandma


Hello sweet friends!

Last Tuesday I made a tea for my best friend Stephanie from NJ who is married to hubby's friend and lives here.
She just became a long awaited 'grandmahood,' from her DD Christina who had baby Collin in Dallas, Texas, where she resides and it's the first time baby came to Cuenca-Ecuador. A group of friends wanted to meet him.

Here are some pics I took of the two tables. We were 16 friends to greet baby Collin.

The table for six.
There was an antree I served in the living room.
 
I also served in the plates, a 'Carrot, Pineapple and Coconut Cake' and what you see in the tier. Tea and coffee.

Blue and white Onion china with yellow accents to greet the six month old baby Collin.


In the formal dining table there were ten place settings.

The two tier servers with the same I mentioned before, plus the Carrot, Pineapple, Coconut Cake.

My newest lace tablecloth I love.


Sunflowers for the touch of yellow, along with yellow napkins and bows for all three tiers.


My dear friend Stephanie with her first grandchild baby Collin.


I hardly had time to take much better pics, but at least I got these few to remember it by and were taken before the guest sat down, so there's no cake or entree yet.

Thank you so much for your kind comments, you so make my day!

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.

LOVE,
FABBY

Celebrating America the Beautiful


Hello sweet friends!

   While getting my patriotic post up, finally ! I've been thinking of so many awful things that have happened to our dear country, the United States of America, lately. Between floods, fires and terrorists attacks on American soil that killed innocent Americans, I don't know..

The latest Orlando shooting by people that load America with all their might, even if they are born in the same soil.
So many other shootings I don't care to enumerate anymore.
 
How you can't put up flags or any patriotic symbol of the great USA because someone doesn't like it, as it offends others, RIGHT IN THE SAME COUNTRY for heaven sake, as there are even some Politians, I notice, that care less about what Americans feel and only worry not to hurt the BAD guys !

I hardly recognize the country I grew up in with so many values, specially Judeo-Christian principles and yet we knew there were other religions too and we all respected them; while in school we placed our little hands in our chests to recite the "Pledge of Alliance to the United States."

I never, ever encountered any prejudice in my country. Only wonderful Americans with faults just like everyone else.

I hope you can all celebrate America this coming 4th. of July with all the love, respect and pride you can have for your country.

That's all I want to say, except maybe I am very, very sad and pray the next president of the USA respect this great country and keep it, along with the people of America, safe.

Here is my humble table to celebrate another birthday of America the Beautiful and  I say humble, cause the USA deserves so much more in my book !
I'm sorry for what I've just said, I am very sensitive about the United States lately and I can't help it.

Just don't comment anything hurtful if you don't agree. You can make me see otherwise, if I'm wrong, that's ok.

Thank you and GOD BLESS AMERICA the Beautiful.

I did my 4th. of July setting right here in the kitchen, the heart of our home, where we spend most of our time with family and friends.

Love our old farm table from our own previous 'farm house.'

I started with a white cotton placemat, a red charger, a white dinner plate, a red salad plate, blue and white 'Liberty Blue' transferware plate and ended with my star plates and a red teacup in each of the four places.



Some red white and blue flower pots and flags in a basket.


The complete stack of plates.
I have the Liberty Blue, Ironstone plates complete for eight, with soup plates, salad and dinner plates.

For napkins I used dish towels in red stripes and blue checks.
 


 




 






Thank you so much dear friends for your kind comments, you always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.

"HAPPY 4TH. OF JULY. GOD BLESS AMERICA"

LOVE,
FABBY
