FABBY: Tea is Served in the Kitchen


Hello sweet friends!

       I'm starting this Monday by inviting you to have some tea in my kitchen, my fave place and where we spend most of our days, eating, cooking, baking, watching the news, or enjoying the view out the windows... so why not invite you too for tea! 

I can serve you coffee, tea and some goodies, whatever you prefer. I can make you little sandwiches too! (my wishful thinking, pretend).

I hope you like my tea setting for you... so please, come inside!



What made me invite you for tea is that I've been tweaking a little... so now my coffee station is by the TV, in front of our breakfast nook. Before I had cook books and my cookie jar in this space.

I chose for you my Mil's antique teacups from her wedding china and are under the cloche. They also have pink roses as the table topper.

Some goodies in my 'Lady Carlyle' tier and some cheese in that small covered stand.


Now I'm keeping the 'cookbooks of the moment' here, next to the cooktop where I had the coffee station before. 

The cook-book at your left was written by my dear Mil and the other I bought from the volunteers for the 'Cancer Society, FASEC.' Next is my Cookie jar I have forever. 

Our kitchen is not big, but not small either and I love to spend time here, it's really very comfortable and warm, I think.
The door you see leads to the laundry room.

People here have the custom to serve on warm days, some cold fruit sherbet before tea, or even ice-cream...whatever you prefer!


Some of you might remember my Chinese teapot collection I keep in the window sill... I so enjoy looking at them.

Coffee is ready in the back, if you rather.


I love this little pantry for my everyday use as I have a wall to wall closet pantry in the laundry room as well.
The 'slit' pantry, next to my double ovens contains all the things I need for baking right at hand.


Thank you so much sweet and kind friends for coming over for tea, you always make my day!

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

LOVE,
FABBY

Fabby, veo que te gustan las violetas de los Alpes o ciclamen.A mi también me encantan. Te cuento por si no lo sabés que se riegan con cubitos de hielo así me duran de una temporada para otra. Cuando se ponen feas las dejás en reposo hasta fines del verano y allí las empiezas a mojar y verás como brotan.

Your table setting and desserts look so inviting. Kitchens always seem to be where we gravitate to. You're kitchen is very attractive and well thought out. This skinny pantries are great! Lots of storage goes into such a narrow spot. We had one in our motorhome years ago and I was always amazed at how much it held. Thanks for sharing- XO, Liz

Fabby, The cabinets in your kitchen are lovely. The warm wood tones and the pattern of the marquetry are so pretty. The "slit" pantry is wonderful, I would love to have one in my kitchen. The pretty flowered tea cups in the cloche and the tea service look so inviting. I would love to sit down and have tea with you. I enjoyed the tour of your kitchen, it is nice to see where you bake all of those lovely treats for your friends and family.

What a wonderful view out your kitchen, love it I would be in there all day long.
