FABBY: My New Finds

Hello sweet friends!

    The friends that have followed me lately know Alejandro bought a beautiful vintage French table for our breakfast room.

While we were there, one of the sales person informed me there was another container coming from Europe the following week and that I might want to see the transferware dishes and many gorgeous things they were bringing in.

So you know... my curiosity was beyond me! 
Here I'm sharing what I bought recently!

I specially love, love the cobalt blue I'talian-Murano,' cut glass compote with pedestal.

Funny, cause we made a bet as who would win the 'Soccer WC' and so I lost the bet choosing Argentina, however, I had to buy the bowl instead of getting it as a present from Mr. Living, lol!

I also bought two lovely blue and white dinner transferware plates to add to my collection and a 'Dutch-Delft' blue and white bowl for flower arranging. You know how I love white with blue!

Ok, with that said, here you have my latest treasures.

Isn't this cobalt blue, "Murano-Italy" cut glass compote just gorgeous!
I didn't even mind paying for it myself, lol!

I'm displaying this pretty 'Murano lady' on my formal dining table for now, which is Italian style too.
I would probably try it on my foyer's antique 'French white marble top table' in the near future as well.

I also fell hard for this lovely 'Hand decorated, Delft-Holland' bowl for flower arranging, or even fruit.

The transferware plate on the back of the teacup and saucer is another find and it's, 'The Queen's Silver Jubilee 1977, Staffordshire, England.'

...and the other transferware plate is 'Asiatic Pheasant, Wedgwood-England.'

My new vignette decoration on the antique English buffet.

I hope you liked my new finds.

Thanks for your sweet and kind comments, you always make my day.

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.

Hi Fabby. I love the gorgeous blue and white dishes you have recently acquired. The setting of them on the English buffet is so beautiful. I hope you are having a good week. Blessings, Pamela

You blue and white china collection is ever growing, Fabby, and beautiful all the pieces are! I am in love with your Murano glass footed vase, so gorgeous and exquisite!...Christine

I'm sorry you lost the bet, but you still got your gorgeous compote and that's all that! I love your new vignette, I think you may have inspired me to do a blue tablescape! Hugs, Penny

Fabby, a mi también me encanta el azul en la vajilla. En mayo estuve en Italia y vi como se trabaja el cristal de Murano, es costoso, pués son piezas únicas realizadas por un artesano. Con respecto al fútbol tu marido fue más realista.
hoy desde

Deborah Montgomery said...

gorgeous!! Love that glass footed vase, and the blue and white transferware is beautiful. I really love that Asiatic pheasant design. I have that in red. Would love to see your home in person, it looks so elegant.

Wonderful finds all in one day at one place?! I say that was a good day!

The compote and the Delft piece will yield many years of delightful use. They are wonderful! I'd have paid for the compote, too. Your new vignette is vibrant and beautiful. Thanks for inviting us for a peek. Cherry Kay

Marigene said...

The cobalt compote is beautiful, so is the Delft bowl, Fabby!

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

Beautiful finds- the blue compote is gorgeous! The china looks perfect with the picture on the wall- the colors work so well together!

Lady of the Manor said...

What fabulous finds!! That cut glass compote is absolutely gorgeous! My dear MIL and I saw a punchbowl similar to it at an auction. We considered bidding on it but it was simply too large for either of us to store safely. It was tempting. This is a perfect size, though! Your other blue finds are beautiful. Looking forward to seeing how you use them in the future!!!

Gorgeous as always dear Fabby. Love your footed Murano piece. I always admire your beautiful dishes and accessories. A lovely sight for any eyes. Sorry about Argentina. We always want our teams to win..... xo

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Fabby,
You really keep scoring high at that local antique store. They are very courteous for tipping you each time so you get the BEST of it.
Love all of them and the Murano glass is brilliant in this cobalt blue. Pieter and I both have been to Murano, we lived in the Veneto area, so we do know about it.
Lovely Delft ware too and the Staffordshir transferwre is lovely. ENJOY!

Oliva Ohlson said...

I too was rooting for Argentina, but happy for the winners!

You always find the best treasures! I love the blue glass compote!

Villrose said...

Oh, my! Just fell in love with the "Murano Lady at once"! Blue and white is also a winner. Always.
