FABBY: Daughter Sofia's Christmas Home

Hello and Merry Christmas to you all my lovely friends!

We arrived today to my daughter Sofia and her family's house; who are hosting Christmas for the first time in their home, since they usually come to our house and make the three hour drive. We are happy to be spending our Christmas holiday with them, therefore, we made the three our trip, for a change.. to be with our dear little grands, Victoria 8 and Cayetana 5.

I took some photos of Sofia's house all decked out for Christmas 2012, as it's also their first in this house.
 The entrance door. They also have a row of big candy cane lights by the walk, but I should have taken photos at night, instead in the full sunny 90 degree day, lol

 The tree,  and in the side table her Nativity scene and a little amusement park. Hubby in the background looking out at the garden..
I taught Sofia to also make a memory tree starting from her first Christmas after their wedding in October 1999. I gave her the top angel and several ornaments I had in my tree and some new as well...course, she acquired most of them and now her tree looks lovely and pretty full too!
They live in hot weather all year round, by sea level; therefore, she has no fire place or mantel for that matter..so she cleverly placed her little daughter's stocking by a side chest.
  The candle holders in the coffee table were also made at our past ceramic company.
Sofia's little Nativity under the side table.
 The small musical amusement park, and the merry go round.


A close up of her hand decorated tea set with animals in the lids.
 The gifts are mostly ours for the parents and little G'girls, plus our Sil's parents and their young daughter.
I designed this tea set with mugs for eight, at our former ceramic co.
Sofia placed it inside her lovely silver tray.


Merry Christmas to all of you and your dear families..may you have a very blessed holiday.

Thank you in advance for your generous comments, as you always make my day!

I will also be joining some great parties, so thank you so much lovely hostesses.



Love,
Fabby

Fabby- What a beautiful home. I love the Memory tree- each of my daughters (and one son) has one, too. This year I further divided down ornaments and Santas and gave them to the kids.

You did a beautiful job on your design work. I bet you miss it sometimes. Is it still in operation (by someone else) or did you just close it down? What a wonderful lot of china you made while you were there.

A very Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family, Fabby. Love to you-xo Diana

Hi Fabby,

Deares Fabby,
Love the way you too are weaving pieces from the past into the present. Your former ceramic company yielded exceptional pieces! Glad you and your daughters kept several of them, like this great design by you.
Lovely home and with that I wish you a Merry Christmas. Oh, I miss the tropics (Indonesia) so much... especially on a cold and rainy day as today.
Hugs,
Mariette

Sophia's home is decorated so beautifully for Christmas.How exciting to have the family together in her home for Christmas for the first time.
Wishing you all the merriest of Christmases.
Hugs,

I'm glad you safely arrived at Sophia's. That's a long trip! I get really tired when we have to drive a long distance. You are there now with your family, though, and that's totally worth it! Their new home is lovely, and I really like the amusement park set up!!! That's fun! The nativity scene under the table is pretty, too. I forget how in Florida people probably wouldn't have a fireplace or mantel to decorate!!! It's amazing how it's so warm there!!! It's 90 degrees there and like 9 degrees here! :-) I also forget how wooden floors are cherished here where I live, but are less practical in Florida. I like all the tile throughout!!! Have a wonderful Christmas and a safe journey back home!

Hi Fabby,
a wonderful decoration for Christmas with kids. Your daughter has as much style as you. And I love the colorful pottery with the animal figurines. Remind me to Beatrix Potter. So cute. Thanks for sharing and have wonderful Christms holidays.
Best greetings, Johanna

Fabby, Your daughters home is beautifully decorated for Christmas. I hope you are having a wonderful day with your family.

What lovely decorations your daughter has! It's nice that you and your hubby decided to go to your daughters -- it's always fun for children to be in their own homes for Christmas, at least some of the time.

Rebecca said...

The tea set is SO special! I marvel at your talent, Fabby. (After the previous post, I wonder again where you store all your wonderful wares!?!)

Your daughter's home is so charming. Isn't it fulfilling to see our children create their own beautiful households and traditions?

Fabby!! Felicidades! I was so happy to see your comment on my Christmas table! I've missed you! And I've now come across yours as I take a few minutes to look through Tablescape Thursdays. Sofia's home is absolutely lovely, and those dishes...oh, my! What fabulous creativity you have to design such beautiful pieces! I am certain you had a wonderful time visiting with them over the holidays. I wish you and your family all the best in 2013. I promise to do a better job of posting now that the holidays are over (keep an eye out for the Epiphany/Three Kings post coming!). Blessings to all of you, dear Fabby. ~Zuni
