Hello dear Friends!
|LOOK at my beautiful giveaway I won from pretty Deborah Montgomery for her "just three month" bloggiversary! |
I love the adorable teacup and saucer in bone china 'Colclough made in England' and the pretty vintage tray linen, in such a soft and delicate vanilla color as the teacup and saucer.
Lovely Deborah has a beautiful blog, you don't want to miss her at "THE BEAUTIFUL MATTERS" and you would never believe she was blogging only three months, she is a pro at this, with great taste and very talented...you, like me, would think she has been blogging for ever!
She is also a lovely lady you will love to meet her if you haven't yet!
Here is the link to her blog: http://thebeautifulmatters.blogspot.com
Thank you so much dear Deborah, I am very grateful and lucky to have this lovely giveaway from you, all the way from your Michigan, USA home, right here at my home in Ecuador, SA to enjoy and remember you every time I use them!
|My table for MOTHER'S DAY 2014. This table is in honor of my Mother, your Mothers, to you my friends, the Mothers in my family and to all the Mothers in the world!|
May God bless you always!
|The etched stemware is Viennese. The three tier server is Royal Albert-Lady Carlyle.|
|The plates also have some gray 'brushstrokes' around them, which went perfectly with the reverse side in gray of the lovely floral place mats DD Sofia gifted me this past C'mas.|
|The complete place setting with the teacup and saucer. I have them for 12 places... and some are chipped, as they are old!|
I also used white chargers that have a faux mother of pearl finish and it picks up a sort of gray tone in the light.
|I always loved gray and pink. I was so fortunate that the reverse of the floral placemats are with a soft gray pattern, perfect for the dishes!|
|I baked Mother's|
fave cake, my 'Carrot Cake' with coconut cream-cheese topping and walnuts.
|The centerpiece flower vase was made at our former ceramic company.|
The pretty flowers have lasted since my Rosary tea.
|I used my beloved Oriental ladies in honor of Mother's Day.|
|Look how pretty the gray side pattern in the place mats look with the gray on the dishes; I truly loved it together!|
|Love this pretty lady with the bird in her wrist. |
The sweet bowl and saucer is vintage Bavarian, I will use one for hot sauce, the men like and the other for Parmesan cheese. They belonged to Alejandro's grandma and I have a set of four.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY 2014 to all of you sweet ladies in blog land, to the mother's in your families and to your own Mothers, if you are lucky to still have her with you!
May God bless you always!
Thank you my wonderful friends for your comments, as they always make my day!
Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.
