My dearest hubby gave me a perfume, J.Lo's latest, very sweet and nice for everyday...well, I thought it was nice of him, so after I thanked him, my daughters, grandgirls and even my mom, we proceeded to exchanged gifts, they were all so beautiful! I see my hubby come out of the guest bedroom with a kind of huge box, beautifully wrapped, as he came straight to me, I said to myself...ok, this is it! It most certainly was! He had to go on business a couple of weeks before mom's day to Quito, the capital of Ecuador, where they have the most incredible antique shops and he had fallen in love with this German, vintage, Urn, hand painted, or decorated, with beautiful roses; it says in back Germany and 4 numbers...whatever, it's gorgeous and he thought I'd love it in my new French marble table, when there's no flowers... and yeah, it does look perfect there!
Here she is!...isn't she a total beauty?! You can see the hand decorated pink roses and leaves. My hubby knows everything about and appreciates the beauty of European and oriental porcelain, ceramic and pottery, as he owned a Ceramic and porcelain Co. for 30 years.
I used the vintage French table in the foyer, where the urn is going to be always and for this table setting...but just for the photographs, as we'll have tea at our round table at our breakfast room.
Here she is again, along with my silver tea set and my Mil's cups, and plates, and yummy sweets. The pretty ceramic basket with the bread was made at our past, ceramic factory, the flowers in the handle were made by hand too.
The platter has ""churros", a Spanish sweet for tea; I have a little machine to make it. Some strawberry home made marmalade and butter. The sweet bread in the ceramic basket has all color dragees or lozenges, my grandgirls loved them and lick them off, lol.. they're from the local bakery.
This silver cake spatula was my Mil's and it has her initials engraved. You can see the bread better with the dragees, or lozenges...how does one call them anyway?
The urn and the bread basket with hand made pink florets.
The silver tea set and in the background a three tier English silver plated stand with some cookies and sweets.
The vintage glass bowl, where the marmalade is, was my Mil's.
A side view of the table setting.
A clear view of the sweet bread, that my granddaughter Cayetana, four, loves to lick the lozenges! hahahaaa...
I invited to have an afternoon tea with me a couple of Sils, hubby and me, just to celebrate my new porcelain Urn, without the lid I could arrange some fresh flowers too, I think, do you?
