Fabby: VIVA! ST. PATRICK'S DAY!

Hi!  I'm so excited to participate with my St. Patrick's Day tablescape with all of you talented people, Irish and NOT...like me.   
In another post I shared with you all that I used to design china, hand made and hand decorated, inspired in the Ecuadorian Indian people's cloths.  The one I'm  showing you now the flowers are from women's blouses and the, yes, shamrocks are from the men's  shirt collars.  So I mixed the two embroidered patterns and came up with this design, many years ago... and now here we are, my dishes and me honouring the Irish Catholic St. Patrick' Day with this china!
The place mats  my MYL gave them to me many years ago and I couldn't believe they went so well with the plates!  This place mats are also falk art from this region and are also hand made in a "frame loom" and it also has a green flower at the two edges of each one!
The green goblets  are Italian and I only use them Christmas time so they don't break much more than they already have.
The astromelias had a nice and soft green to them, since I did this table they have bloomed beautifully.
I dedicate this table scape to all my blog friends, Irish and not, for their enthusiasm and talent to execute such spectacular and  amazing tables capes I feast my eyes with every time I open your 
blogs.

You DESIGNED those dishes??!?!!! Fabby....they're beautiful!!! They are absolutely beautiful!!! It's funny how well they fit into the whole St. Patrick's Day theme, but they could also go for just about any occasion. I am SO impressed!!! What an absolutely incredible accomplishment. I am just getting to know you, so I did not know you designed china in your previous career. Amazing! I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful creations! I'm not Irish either, but we'll both party hard on St. Patrick's Day. OK? :-) Have fun, and I'll see you at Susan's on Thursday! Oh, and thank you so much for stopping by my blog earlier today. I am so glad you did! Always nice to hear from you!!!
