FABBY: Tea Time with my G'girls

Hello sweet friends!

Alejandro and me we've been so lucky lately to be having such fun time with our little girls, Victoria 8 1/2 and Cayetana 6, which will be spending their Spring brake with us. They are so smart and have grown in many ways so much; they even take pictures with their Mini-Ipad to send to their parents, of every lunch, dinner, baking, etc...almost like me, lol..  We talk a lot and have fun conversations, I know some of you know what I mean, as children this age are so fast about their own thinking and explanation of things...they're so entertaining and we even learn so much from them! I'm very busy, but extremely happy. I can't believe they're already visiting us ten days..and we have until next Saturday, when my daughter Sofia will take them back home.

My little girls are such joy, that I enjoy baking with them and having tea time; of course, in their own children's tea set, grandma-'Abe', (that's what they call me) keeps for them. Ok, here we are..




Here is the children's tea set and in the back it says 'Hartin' and a little flower, like. There's no mention to where it was made. I bought it last year and it was $15...ca't beat it!



Victoria and Cayetana chose the tablecloth, the tea napkins in yellow and the flatware. They also didn't want bunnies, lol...they chose doggies, as they love them more than any other animal in the whole wide world..heheheee..

The little bundt cakes didn't come out that pretty, caz 'Abe' filled the little pans a bit too much and so they spilled; but, they were yummy anyway!



The pattern it's so cute, with a mother and her little girl riding a bike, along with their doggie. Happy Mother's Day is written all over the pieces, which I thought it was so sweet!


The floppy little cakes, lol..
Some little cheese sandwiches in pita brown bread.


I loved the little tray that came with the set, which follows the daisies in the tea set.
The little teacups are so sweet.

Cakes and doggies.



Victoria pouring herself some honey and chamomile tea.

Three ladies enjoying an afternoon tea.  oops!..look at my eye glasses..


Thank you sweet friends for visiting us and for always making my day!

I'm also very grateful to the gracious ladies that host such great parties.

LOVE,
FABBY

Good Afternoon Fabby, What a lovely tea party you had with your grand daughters.
The little cakes were even nicer because your girls helped you bake them.
I love the china you used... everything had a touch of Spring about it.
Have a lovely Sunday.
Best Wishes

Blessings and happy Sunday to you-xo Diana

Tea in Texas said...

Precious and Priceless! The sweet girls are so smart to set the tea table and use the dogs for the dog is pictured with the Mother and child on the set! The darlings are at a great age and absorb everything. The Mother's Day set is just the perfect treasure for them to use and the photos have many happy faces. The table is so beautiful and the yellow accessories are perfect with the tea party. Have a great Spring Vacation with them.

NOTE: My post this week has our youngest puppy and our older rough collie pictured in the Texas Bluebonnets which is the state flower and I thought the grand daughters might enjoy the photos!

Grandchildren complete life's circle of Love. And in your case, of class and Beauty. Too. Gorgeous Little Ladies.
They will make you proud and happy and that's an amazing Blessing.

Love their set... made me smile as I imagine it makes you and them when you see it.

Thank you for sharing these pieces of your heart.

The tea set and table setting chosen by you and the girls makes your tea time lovely, and the memories of this time with their grandma "Abe" will last their life-time. What special memories you all will carry with you of such sweet times.

Roses, Lace and Brocante said...

Hello Fabby
I'm visiting your blog for the first time - from Martha's tea party!

Oh that's such a sweet tea set for your darling granddaughters - how lucky you are having them to stay and share a tea party!!!

I live in New Zealand and my daughter and 3 granddaughters live in France!
I am visiting them soon and I just can't wait to enjoy spending time in the kitchen baking with the two older ones. The baby is still too little!

Lovely to meet you, I hope you might come and visit me.
Hugs
Shane ♥

Monique Elisabeth said...

Hi Fabby, you have sweet little granddaughters. I can't wait for my little two to grow up a bit. So lovely to create memories with them. Have a wonderful day. Hugs. :)

Kathleen said...

What an adorable tea set! Looks like you had a wonderful time with your ggirls!
Thanks for linking to Let's Dish!

Alycia Nichols said...

Oh, wow, Fabby...the girls are definitely following in their Mother and Grandmother's footsteps! They are going to be master tablescapers before they're 21!!! Isn't that wonderful that they have taken such a profound interest in it? The younger generation needs that nurturing and guidance to learn and actually practice the art of setting a nice table. You have given your granddaughters the perfect opportunity! They did a wonderful job, and I love their choice of doggies!

Even though the cakes aren't as perfect-looking as you might have liked, I'm sure they tasted wonderful. In the end, I'm sure that's all that really mattered!!!

GREAT buy on the tea set!!!!!!
