FABBY: New Gorgeous English Tea Pot!

Hello sweet friends!

The other day I went by the window of the European shop and dropped dead!...Ok, no I didn't die, but had the need to go inside and buy the gorgeous tea pot I had seen! Isn't she just to gorgeous? It just says: made in England, in the same white porcelain, so you can hardly see it...anyway, I didn't care what it said, I just totally loved it and mother seconded me on my purchase, since we were together...and here she is!
My granddaughters, 8 and 6 will be staying with us for two weeks, therefore, be patient and be sure that I will  visit you and leave you comments, even if it takes me somewhat longer! Thank you my dear friends for understanding.

My daughter Sofia came for the long weekend herself and to drop off the G'girls for a couple of weeks to spend with us. Therefore, the new teapot will contain hot chocolate  for us four, (the girls will use pretty children's mugs), along with some Madeleine French cookies, I made for them. One side of the tea pot has hand decorated vessels.

The other side has hand decorated English soldiers... and maybe they're arriving in American shores?

The peak has a gold lion's face..or something I'm not sure what it is yet.

I did a small setting for the hot chocolate with the Madeleines and the two Polish teacups my daughter Alexandra gifted me two birthdays ago.

On one side the teacups have yellow birds and in the other, blue ones.
Here you can appreciate the pretty blue birds on one side of the teacups.

The other side of the pretty teacups with the yellow birds.

My small setting is done in our alabaster breakfast table.
The Madeleines are yummy and the recipe is from Martha Stewart.

The friends that have followed me know I bought in January lots of sale things, among them, the Madeleine-pan.

The English soldiers in the "American shores...hubby made the joke..hehee..I'd love it if I knew it was a certain thing!

The hand decorated English vessels. As you can see, I am in love with the darn teapot! Hope you liked it too.

Thank you so much my friends for stopping by and always making my day.

I also appreciate the wonderful ladies that host some great parties!

That is just a gorgeous piece, Fabby. I love anything with sailing ships on it. I have a little blue and white teapot that belonged to my mother with a ship on it.
The madelines look like the perfect accompaniment to your drink! You have SUCH beautiful pieces, Fabby and you USE them which is even more special.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend- xo Diana

You set a beautiful tea table. And your new tea pot is lovely. How sweet to use it with the girls. My mom does nice tea parties for me, my daughter, daughter in law and granddaughters every once in a while and we all love them. I have some pretty tea pots and cups and am thinking I need to have one for my granddaughters myself.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Fabby,
You are quite a lady! Why do you keep going to that European store and together with your Mother... She's no better than you are for leaving things there. But you did adopt a mighty pretty teapot. One indeed wonders what the scene depicts.
But WHY don't you tell us where your lovely tea chest came from? You just skipped over it; so much is that teapot occupying your very thoughts!
Hugs to you and enjoy a happy weekend.

Cindy said...

What a beautiful teapot! And it looks so very gorgeous with the two gold teacups and that fabulous marble topped table! Love it! You put together the most elegant tables I have ever seen.
Love and hugs, Cindy

SavannahGranny said...

So beautiful. I don't care if they are on American shores it is so beautiful. So funny!
I know it was so fun to have the Ggirls and teach them about tea parties.
The madeleines look so good. I was going to ask for the recipe but I can check out Martha.
have a great weekend, Ginger

Dolores said...

Oh Fabby, I can see why you fell in love and had to buy the tea pot; it's gorgeous.

Diane said...

Oh, Fabby! That teapot is so unique! I see why you fell in love with it. I was just wondering, if the face could be the North Wind blowing the ships across the sea? Anyway, I know the grand-girls will enjoy those delicious cooking - I have thought about buying a pan like that for years, but I have never done it. Have fun entertaining your special guests!

La Vie Quotidienne said...

what a lovely teapot and it goes so well with the cups! Rather amazing but they are all so elegant and elegant things seem to go together. Very, very pretty.

Shelia said...

Hi Dear Fabby! Oh, you did a good thing going into that store and buying this gorgeous teapot! I agree with you - the shores of America! :)
I thought those tea cups went with your teapot - they look beautiful with it. Oh, the cookies look delish and the plate you have them on is so pretty. Enjoy your time with your little grands. I could be jealous, but I won't! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Lulu said...

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...


Now if you ask me that is a perfect tea. Honestly it is perfect in every way. I love it.

Especially those bird cups - you know I love birdies!

That English teapot is SO unique, too!

Well done, Fabby.


Terri said...

Oh you are planning such a fine treat for your grands! It looks so lovely. I wish I was there too, with your gorgeous new tea pot! And drinking your best tea in your sweet birdie cups! And tasting your delicious looking desserts! Tell your grands I am jealous! lol!

Anonymous said...

I think that teapot is fabulous! Or should I say Fabby-u-lous. Ha! Ha!
Have a great rest of your week.

Rhissanna said...

That is an amazing teapot. I've never seen one with a golden mask at the base of the spout. Is there a sea battle on one side? Either way, it's a lovely partner to the tea cups and those madelines look nummy!

Entertaining Women said...

Well, of course the lovely teapot had to come home with you. It needed a loving home. Your tea table is lovely, and I relish the thought of your granddaughters learning the art of gracious entertaining at your knee. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

Jacqueline said...

So pretty Fabby! Have so much fun with those cuties! I have been in and out for the last two months and finally have some time home but have the wedding and also a missionary to get ready to send out so we are crazy right now!

Pamela said...

Simply be-u-ti-ful! Such a special pot to use at Granny's house. And let's don't forget the cookies. Yum!

Tammy @ A Walk in the Countryside said...

Absolutely beautiful!

Marlis said...

Fabby, this is really gorgeous. It looks as if it is perfectly at home in your home. In other words, it belongs with you! The cups are so pretty. I know the grands will have a wonderful time because you will spoil them rotten. Won't you??? Do you have a good recipe for Madeleine's? I received a couple of pans for Christmas and haven't made them yet!! Gorgeous Fabby, have fun. xo marlis

Kathleen said...

Beautiful teapot and the cookies look so good!

podso said...

You were smart to follow your heart with the teapot, Fabby. It is gorgeous and I love the detail. I wonder if there is some research you can do to find out if those are American shores. :-) The teacups complement it so well -- amazing match. Well you will be busy in a delightful way with the g'girls--have a great time and savor the moments; they grow up so quickly. I enjoyed your previous post with your every day ware and the view out your kitchen window.
