FABBY: "White Scapes"

 I added photos to the tablescape of the coffee table decor in the living room.
 This Italian porcelain rockin horse is one of my favorite Christmas decoration pieces I have. 
This pretty porcelain santa I won several years ago teaching at the C'mas store how to decorate a tree, among other things as it was a $200 price.
 This is a beautiful tablecloth my mother gifted me for my birthday last year Oct.  20, 2010. I love the pretty and delicate embroidery in the middle of it and I took this picture before I fixed the table. The crystal centerpiece is Polish, you can use it as a candle holder with the gold wreath, or with flowers as I have done here.
 I used my White Scapes Noritake dishes to make a predominant white Christmas table.
 Here is the tablecloth hanging and the embroidery in the buttom is on an organza strip as the tablecloth is white satin...and yes, I've used it and got it dirty and it washes beautifully, not a hassle ironing at all, like the pure linen ones, lol.
 The stems are hand etched at the Chzech Republic, they're also almost my favorite ones too.

The center embroidery

Here I also used my pretty linen embroidery napkins.
The buttom embroidery  on the tablecloth.
   I haven't been able to visit some of you as I just came back today, Sunday 18th., from helping my daughter Sofia move to her new house, for which I'm so happy for her as it looks great...But, I'm totally exausted, moving is a titanic job, although they had done most of the moving.  The small things are very stressful and tires you out and many things were not concluding like her cable tv, they didn't come to connect them, until maybe Tuesday of this week coming and so I had no internet.  I will be visiting and thanking you  even if it's a little late.  I had a tablescape done with one of my fav dishes my Whitescapes here goes.

Wishing you my wonderful friends a very Happy Christmas and may God sends lots of blessings  to you and yours.  All the wonderful ladies that host each week such terrific and fun parties, with the only purpose for us to show off our lovelies. I also thank you so much and wish you all the happiness this Christmas along with your families.  Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Love always,

Je suis très heureuse que tu aies pu passer du temps (je me permets de vous tutoyer ma chère Fabbie, pardon!) avec ta fille. Même si cela fut épuisant cela a dû être si enrichissant pour vous deux.
Je trouve absolument ravissant la petite table avec le père noël et le cheval à bascule...
Ta table de noël est exquise... Tant de raffinement que j'apprécie. Tu es très talentueuse.
je te souhaite de passer de très agréables fêtes, qu'elles soient remplies de joie pour toi et tous ceux que tu aimes.
Très gros bisous

Hello Fabby,
What a fabulous table! The tablecloth is beautiful and your touches have made the setting simply lovely.
But I must tell you that you have stolen my heart with the rocking horse! It is so charming and as a collector of rocking horses, it has me swooning; darling!
Thank you so much, Fabby, for making my Tea Time such a pleasant time. Your participation has made it all the more special.
I hope you will add my link to your list of parties.
Have a wonderful Christmas season and may the New Year bring you many

Christmas hugs,

So gorgeous Fabby. You set the most wonderful tables!

Merry Christmas!

Alycia Nichols said...

I'm glad the moving is all over now! I am sure that was a mammoth job, and moving has NEVER been exactly "fun" in my experience. Hooray that you survived!!! This is one of the best tables you have ever done, Fabby. Absolutely beautiful!!! The tablecloth that your Mom gave you is the perfect foundation to all the other incredibly well-thought out elements on the table. Your Mom has very good taste!!! The chargers are beautiful, the stemware is's just an all-round rockin' table!!! I hope that you are able to get some much-needed and well-deserved rest over the holiday weekend. I wish you a very Merry Christmas and hope that enjoy every minute of it. Take care, sweet Fabby!
