FABBY: Cloches, Cups & Tea

Here's the cake stand with the glass cover with, cups, tea pot and a cheese plate that has an indian woman with her embroidered skirt border, where I used to get inspired for the designs of the chinas, at our past Ceramic Co.
Inside the cloche, there's a marmolade bowl with a papaya.
Another vignette in the kitchen with a vintage glass, pharmacy jar, with some cups inside.  The runner is an embroidered sample I used for my plate designs.
The rooster plate and the serving spoons holder, with doves, were made at our former Ceramic Co.
Tea with my Onion tea set and the cloche. The basket with the ceramic in front was my mil's.

This small cloche holds inside a vintage, sterling baby cup, that was my hubby's and a sterling vintage tea pot strainer for loose tea.
This cloche, or really, cake cover, contains inside my Royal Albert, Oct. cup, that was a gift from my Mil, many years ago for my birthday. The sugar bowl is porcelain in 24k. gold, from Russia, a gift from a Russian customer of ours, years ago.
I love my Oriental vignette with cloches and cups inside them.
The gorgeous wooden Chinese box for tea, came from New York's China Town, a birthday gift from my best friend Stephanie
I gathered them togetherand made a vignette in my dining table, along with some tea cups.

I had so much fun making vignettes with some cake covers and not many cloches, but, never the less, I'm here to join the!
I will be linking to the following great and fun parties and I do thank all the lovely ladies, that host every week.  xoxo

Celestina Marie Designs said...

Hi Fabby,
I am in heaven viewing your wonderful cloches and tea sets. I love them all. It would be hard to pick a favorite. Your displays should be in a magazine.
I used to paint ceramic way back when in my earlier painting career. Your pieces are simply gorgeous.

Thank you for stopping by and your kind words.

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Wow, such beautiful dishes and you've displayed them so beautifully under your cloches. Such a wonderful idea. Thanks so much for joining the party. Just so pretty. Hugs, Marty

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Fabby, so sorry you can't see all of the 5th column. Someone else said they couldn't either, however when they clicked on my blog with full screen they all came up with no problem. Try that, if not if you can see even part of it you can click on it and it will still come up. Next party, I will make it only 4 columns, then there won't be a problem. So sorry for this problem. Hugs, Marty

Suz said...

Thank you! This was so lovely! You have so many incredible pieces and sets and I can't pick out just one that I like. I love the first and the blue and white brings back many happy memories! I have been poking around in my mil's beautiful china, as I have little of my own. It is so much fun! I would love to have you visit, if you have time!
Fondly, Suz

Anita@Theycallmejammi said...

What bright, beautiful vignettes. Love them all. The cups under the glass is gorgeous and I love your rooster.

mississippi artist said...

They are all lovely, but my favorite is the tiny one with the sterling baby cup.

Sue said...

Fabby, All of your vignettes are so very special. I really was drawn to the one with the silver baby cup and the tea strainer. Everything else is so colorful and cheery! I need to stack some teacups one day. :-) So glad you came by for a visit today.

Happy Pink Saturday. I love the teacup w/the floral design and there's a plate in that photo ... it has little puffs of something on it. I think I have a plate just like that - I can just barely see the design but, yep, I think so. You have some nice stuff and nicely displayed. Enjoyed my visit. Thanks, Jenn

Thank you so much for sharing them with us for the Sunday Favorites party this's always such a treat!

My friend, just wanted you to know that when I clicked on the links that you left...neither one worked. I was able to correct the link for this post but I'm not sure what tablescape (from last year) that you were wanting to show? If you let me know the date...I can correct the link for you! Love ya, dear friend!!!

Have a super Sunday!
