FABBY: Another Tableware Design

I'm posting at BNOTP Thursday's another of my  dishes I designed at my husband's Ceramic Factory we owned  3 years ago.  This design I used in making my tablescape last Thanksgiving, but maybe not everyone saw it, as I was so new at blogging.
The inspiration for this design came from the wrapping blankets Indian women use for their infants, they're made of thin natural colour wool they weave themselves by hand, and the embroidery is with birds and flowers...and of course, the beauty of it is that they use lots of colour!  So here goes the one we used to call:  "Baby Blanket".  The candle holders are from Portugal, they won as best design in glass in 1994, I found that out later, I just loved them and bought them here.....I loved the lotus-flower look to them.
I thank you in advance for all the nice friends that visit this post.
Lots of hugs.

Oh my goodness...gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous, Fabby! I love the vibrant oranges and blues together. I have the same little covered duck bowls, 8 of them plus the large soup tureen...they are from Portugal, too. I will do a table this fall with them...actually, I think one of my first tables had them in it.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful talents.
Have a great weekend.

Hi Fabby

Another beautiful tablescape by you.
As for my House of the Week. It's $AUD1,500,000 plus and I viewed it yesterday. Although it is not huge there is plenty of space. Three living areas and 5 bedrooms. The back yard is not huge either but that is less time to maintain the garden.

Best Carolyn

By the way how was the duck salad at your family get together last weekend? Did you end up making it?

Best Carolyn
