FABBY: Welcome to my Christmas Kitchen Tour

Hello sweet friends!

Hope you're all having a wonderful holiday season and enjoying all the house decorating, the baking, the fun and the children..be them our own, or our grands, as Christmas is mostly for them to enjoy and celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Ok...let's get in and see the tons of photos.. be patient and get comfortable!
 Come on in lovely ladies...
 The breakfast nook set for the two of us; where we usually have dinner. Lunch is mostly served in our round table, next to the formal dining room.

The cookie pot at left is where I store bread as it keeps well in ceramics and it was made at our former ceramic company.
 The window by our sink.
 The door with the wreath leads to the utility room, which I added cabinets for more stotage at the laundry area; a few months ago.

 For the tablescape in the breakfast nook I used the dinner plate and teacups from my big china for 16 place settings, along with this pretty Italian tree shaped, salad plate.


The pretty pitcher was also hand made and decorated at our past ceramic factory. I used to design dishes there and the C'mas designs I copied from a piece of holiday material.
 This ceramic cookie ornaments where made and decorated by my two daughters at our factory when they were little girls, perhaps 7 and 8 years old. They shaped them just like we make the edible cut up cookies with the same cookie cutters you see here! I hang them in our memory Christmas tree and there are more too, although some have broken through the years.



 You can't really see it clearly, but this banner I got this year and the figures hanging from it are made of plush and cushioned.
 I also found the Santa clock at your right, this year and paid $10 for it and it works perfectly! You can see my grandgirls artwork in the wall too!
 Everything here was also made by us in our past ceramic factory..except for the cheese dish with lead.
Please enter my kitchen..if you haven't yet.
I think I did mention previously that the teapots here, were made back at our ceramic company and the sugar bowl and creamer are part of my huge Christmas Lynns Fine China, as is the platter. I used to design china in our company, which my husband, owned for 30 years and sold it 4 years ago.
Dinner time!
I used my gold place mats to make the place setting more festive for the Christmas Season.
 
Thank you so much for coming, as I enjoy and appreciate your visits and of course, you always make my day!

Thank you to all the sweet and gracious hostesses for their terrific parties and for having me.

Love,
FABBY

I loved the tour of your kitchen, and especially seeing that great view out your window! The holly pattern china is beautiful -- one of your designs? I have been looking for a platter for the Christmas ham, and saw one in the holly pattern at Pier 1 today -- not nearly as pretty as yours!

I forgot -- I have also loved that Susan Branch book for years. The recipe for eggs with crabmeat is fabulous.
