MY ORIENTAL VALENTINE'S FOR FOUR.

Hello dear friends!

I LOVE ORIENTAL DESIGNS IN DISHES, FURNITURE AND VARIOUS GORGEOUS ACCESSORIES ORIENTALS HAVE.....I LIKE THE DYNASTIES, SPECIALLY THE MING, OF COURSE I DON'T HAVE ANY, BUT SOMEDAY MAYBE ONE SMALL PIECE.....WISHFUL THINKING!?, BUT  HEY, THE SECRET IS TO HAVE WISHFUL THOUGHTS!!!


I BOUGHT THE DINNER PLATE,  SALAD PLATES AND BOWLS WITH LIDS,  AMONG OTHER SMALL PIECES, AROUND 29 YEARS AGO IN NEW YORK CITY AT THE MACY'S CELLAR, THEY WEREN'T A BARGAIN,  BUT EXPENSIVE EITHER,  THAT'S ALL I REMEMBER.


THE GORGEOUS TEA SET IS AN ANTIQUE FROM  WWI ERA,  I BOUGHT IT  AT AN ANTIQUE SHOP...I TOTALLY FELL IN LOVE WITH IT; IT'S A TEA SET FOR 8 AND IT'S  BONE CHINA, THE KIND THAT DOESN'T WEIGHT A GRAM AND IT'S TOTALLY SEE THROUGH.


THE RED TABLECLOTH IS THE C'MAS ONE I EMBROIDERED, I THOUGHT IT'LL LOOK ORIENTAL ALL OF A SUDDEN! I LOVE RED FOR VALENTINE'S.

"I'M REPOSTING MY FIRST VALENTINE'S FROM 2011, WHEN I WAS FIRST BLOGGING."



I used my gold glass and hand painted Turkish chargers.


I bought the china set for eight in mix and match pieces in Macy's, NYC while visiting my parents; more than thirty years ago.

 

Hand decorated salad plate and the lidded soup bowl in the next photo. 

The soup bowls have a lid which you can use for saucers and spring rolls individually while eating your Chinese meal.

I love take out, so who knows, maybe we'll have that, lol!

 

Another pattern with a lidded soup bowl.

 

 

 

Look how beautiful the bone-see thru saucer is.

The antique Chinese tea set is a real treasure to me, as it came from England from after WWI.

HOPE YOU LIKE ALL THE ORIENTAL THINGS IN  MY TABLE AND HAVE A GREAT VALENTINE'S, FULL OF LOVE.    MONDAY-FEBRUARY 14, 2011.


" I WISH YOU ALL MY SWEET FRIENDS A LOVELY AND ROMANTIC VALENTINE'S 2014, NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO, EVEN IF IT'S JUST STAYING INSIDE DRINKING SOME WINE AND HAVING A RELAXING DINNER BY THE FIRE! "


Thank you for all your visits and kind comments my sweet friends, as you always make my day.

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

                                                         LOTS OF LOVE,
                                                              FABBY

So beautiful! I can't remember if I ever saw it, so I am glad you shared it again. I am getting a Chinese DIL so I am suddenly looking at Chinese porcelain with renewed interest (I have always liked it). The Foo dog is really pretty as are the soup sets.
