FABBY: Easter Sunday Blessings!

Hello sweet friends!

"Christ the Lord is risen to-day,"
Sons of men and angels say.
Raise your joys and triumphs high;
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply.
(Charles Wesley)


I created this new vignette on my antique English buffet for the Easter season.
'Blue Danube' platter standing in the backdrop.

Vintage Dutch pewter teaset with tray.  Polish teacups with birds.
I saw the movie "The Son of God" Saturday and I cried the entire time until sweet Jesus got killed in the cross and resuscitated! The actor who portrayed Jesus was soo sweet, you thought you were looking at the real Messiah !

Then on Easter Sunday, after mass, we went in the evening to see "Noah," the movie and it was such an ugly disappointment...and grim movie! Noah was portrayed as a 'psychopath' seemed to me!
I didn't like it at all, as the real Noah in the Bible was not like this man in the movie!

'My humble reviews, lol!'

Have a wonderful week ahead and may our Lord Jesus Christ, who has risen to save us, guide us and care for us.... bless you and your homes always.

Thank you for your wishes and comments, you always make my day.

Thanks to the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties, too.

What a great post, Fabby. Yes, indeed- He has risen and someday we will rise to meet him. God bless you- I hope you had a wonderful Easter day- xo Diana

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Fabby,
Lovely post about the TRUE EASTER!
Your display is so pretty with the cross and the bunnies, all on a lovely crocheted runner with roses...
You are probably so right about your humble review. WHY do they do things like that?
Wishing you a happy 2nd Easter day; provided it is being observed in South America as such. In Europe they do but not in the USA.
We had a lovely Easter day. Mass with reception and than the usual phone call with Mom & Dad and we did chat with daughter Liz in Rotterdam.

HansHB said...

A great serie of photos for the blue theme! Happy Easter to you!

bettyl-NZ said...

Lovely blues on the china!

Roan said...

Lovely post. I really like the bluebird on the cup!

Chubby Chieque said...

Happy Easter to the most beautiful heart/Bloggie friend I ever have.

Hope you had a great one with your lovelies.

I had a quiet one as the kiddos are not around. A quiet dinner with my cousins with no kiddos felt weird. But we had realized that they have their own lives now with their lovelies too.

Happy Easter, Fabby.

Morning Fabby,

You have beautiful blues. I love your new arrangement.

I do not like Russell Crowe and so I will not go see Noah. I've heard the movie does not follow the Bible. No wonder you didn't like it.

Have a Happy Blue Monday!

lina@a happy family said...

Wonderful series of blue stuffs.
The Noah movie wasn't allowed in my country.

Art @ Home said...

I want to see Son of God sooo badly!!! I know it's a great movie. The little Polish teacups are too sweet. Everything looks gorgeous! LOVE the blues and whites.

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Hi Fabby,
Your tea tray is just lovely and I love the bird teacups.

I have heard a lot of negatives about the Noah movie. It certainly wasn't portrayed properly as in the Bible.

Thank you for sharing and coming to tea. Have a lovely week, my friend.


Butterfly 8)(8 Bungalow said...

I love the way you set up your tray and the blue and white. It is very beautiful. Happy Easter.

Beth Laverty said...

Happy Easter. I am sure it was a very pleasant one! I love that very special tea cup with the bird!

Joy H said...

Oh I love that blue and white platter and your Easter vignette. Pretty as always ;)
Have a great week!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Your Easter display is nice Fabby. I've heard that Noah was not that good, glad we didn't spend money to go and see it.

Teresa said...

The actor playinf Jesus in The Son of God is Portuguese. Did you know? Another conection we share though I still didn't watch the movie... I can't neither "judge" Noah but what you say joins every critic I've read so far... in fact for about 2 seconds I was a bit angry to the portrait of Noah as, in some way, gives fuel to the Anti-Christian but this is the Season for Forgiveness and Peace, so it lasted those 2 seconds ahahah
Stopped by to wish you Happy Easter and hope that like in Emaus Our Lord stops by your home and leave Many Blessings to you, your lovely family and all those who love you.

Deborah Montgomery said...

Fabby, hope you had a wonderful Easter! I do not want to go see Noah; I always get upset when I see the Bible being portrayed inaccurately. The director is an atheist, so I guess it's no surprise. (did you get the package yet?)

Dear Fabby, Thank you so much for coming by and leaving such a kind comment. I always enjoy meeting new people and finding new blogs :0)
Your home is quite beautiful!
Have a wonderful week,

Judy Biggerstaff said...

Beautiful as always Fabby. Love blue and white. Your side table is stunning.

Helen's Decor said...

Fabby, thank you very much for the lovely blue display on your buffet. And you made my heart sing by mentioning the movie, "Noah" as my husband and I had spoken out against it on FB after my childhood friend had posted how awful it was. I wish Hollywood would stick to the truth about The Bible.

Bernideen said...

My comments are more of the same Fabby - just FABBY FABULOUS!

Maria C said...

Fabby, thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a sweet note. I adore your cup with the cute little bird! It really puts you in the mood for Spring. And that cute Lladro rabbit is wonderful! I'd never seen it before! Happy Easter, my friend!

Terri said...

Happy Easter Fabby,
What a loving Easter post. Your home looks beautiful in it's celebration of the holiday. I have not seen either movie yet. Thank you for the personal reviews.
Oh how I love your birdie tea cup!

Parsimonious Perfection said...

Beautiful post. Visiting you from the scoop. Thank you for your review of both films; your setting is lovely!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Hi Beautiful Lady, your pics are gorgeous and always so inspiring.
Looks like you enjoyed a wonderful Easter. We did as well and thank you for stopping by and your kind comment.
Happy Spring and many blessings to you and your family.

podso said...

You confirmed my thoughts on not going to see Noah! Thanks! I love your pewter against the blue and your Easter table is just beautiful!

Rosemary and Thyme said...

Lovely photos and sentiments Fabby. I hope you a wonderful Easter.



Pat Cantwell said...

I am WAY behind, dear friend!!!
We begin with a sunrise service and then i sing in a combined Choir for two Traditional Services on Easter!
Our son and daughter~in~law ate a late Traditional Easter dinner with us!!!
Hoping your Easter was blessed!!!
We sang an arrangement of the song at the top of your post!!!

Just a gorgeous Easter vignette, very fitting and respectful for the celebration. I hope you had a wonderful Easter and are enjoying your spring.

JP said...

Such a lovely display, Fabby! Seeing your beautiful, Blue Danube makes me want to bring mine out of hibernation. Your tea set is beautiful, especially that gorgeous tray....Happy belated Easter to you!

Christine Graves said...

Oh wow! I am loving the Dutch antique tea many memories and history it must have!

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

What a lovely vignette!

Kathy A Delightsome Life said...

Blessings to you! LOVE the blue and white and the bird on the teacups! I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,

Deborah@Green Willow Pond said...

He is risen indeed! I too did an Easter post that included a clip from the movie, "The Passion of Christ," starring Mel Gibson. It is a brutal and graphic movie, but so accurate to what Jesus went through. I too cried. Praise God for what he did for us!

Thanks for sharing this at What We Accomplished Wednesdays! Have a super week!

Blessings, Deborah
