FABBY: The Autumn of my Life

Hello sweet friends!

Today, October 20 is my birthday, so I decided to join Beverly's Pink Saturday. I did a small table for one..for me, that is, with my beautiful, Royal Albert October teacup, which is a heirloom from my dear Mil, as her birthday was one day after mine, the 21 of October. I did my small setting in my kitchen table, where I spend lots of time with hubby and bake cookies with our g'girls when they come to spend some time with us.

I'm also honoring this month of October, all the women that have had Breast Cancer and I'm always praying for a cure as soon as possible!! God bless us women in my family, my women friends, all of you my dear blog friends and all the women in the world.

We are invited today to spend the day at a friend's farm in the country, and they have invited many friends..not for my birthday, as it's just a coincidence, but I will have a great time along with lots of good friends, what more can I ask for? The fun it's not even gonna cost me, lol..

I got from my hero Alejandro for my birthday this year, the red English tranferware I got around three months ago, as we're still waiting for the rest, which is the dinner pieces that we ordered from the store and it's coming from Europe. I hope it arrives before Christmas. Ok, here goes, hope you like it.

 My own birthday vignette on our kitchen table. I'm still with the cloche theme, it seems, lol!
 My kitchen table with a pretty view of the avenue. There's also a beautiful river that runs down there as well and now that it's raining around here, it's nice and full of running water and it looks beautiful and serene. Check the last picture I added at the bottom of this post.
 A close up of my birthday vignette, which I chose pink in honor of Breast Cancer month.
 My heirloom Royal Albert, teacup, standing on my English brass pedestal with a mirrored base and cloche. The teacup and saucer was originally my Mil's, as her birthday was October 21, a day after mine.
The Bavarian tea set and cake plate looks so well together with the teacup and so does the table topper. The basket with flowers and some small pumpkins and gourds.
Thanking you in advance sweet friends for coming by and for your kind I know you will, lol..

I will also join the tea parties, therefore, thanks to you all lovely hostesses for having me for October 20th. 2012 at your wonderful parties.

I also added a photo I had from a previous post with the river view out my window and I specially love the sound the water running in the river does when it crashes on some big rocks it finds on it's way..I love to sleep listening to the sounds of this lovely river. Cuenca has four gorgeous rivers that run through the town.

Happy Autumn and Happy Halloween!
