Hello sweet friends!

Here is my Kitchen Tour, which now I am having my daughter, mother hubby and me for tea, ice-cream and brownies... We are starting the sugar fix these days for the holidays.

I am baking away for 'food gifts' too...of course, we try everything before I take them to their destination, lol!

Ok, here is the kitchen all ready for guests and for the most beautiful time of the year...

I always have to have tea in my red transferware for the holidays.

The Christmas sherbets for ice cream were made at our Former Ceramic. Co.

The friends that follow me have seen our sky light stain glass in the kitchen before with red roses, so it's perfect for the holidays.

This station is for the lovers of coffee, like my daughter...actually, I love it too, but I do like my teas as well.

I love the silly little Santa clock with skinny legs, lol (at your upper right) and it's one of the things that make me smile the most when I'm around the kitchen.

Some of you might remember that I explained that I have kept this old rustic wooden table for our kitchen nook and was from our farm, some 35 years old.
Alejandro wants to replace it, but I'm not sure.

My centerpiece along with the brownies and strawberries and cherries at left.

In the window sill some of my huge collection of Christmas mugs...I love mugs!
I have old mugs in a carton box cause really, taking much more out?!


Thank you so much for your wonderful visits, I love you all my friends and that's why you have made my day, days, weeks, months and this year that's almost over.

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.
Specially to the wonderful hostesses that honor me by featuring me at their wonderful parties.



Merry Christmas to all of you.

A stunning display! That Santa clock is a winner.
You must be a magician at storing all these lovely items. One day you must share some of your secrets about how you do this. I would be quivering with apprehension because something lovely might get chipped.

Crystal Grandeur said...

Your kitchen is so pretty, too. I especially like how you decorated that little star muffin pan! So clever! And that Santa clock would make me smile, too!! Merry Christmas to you and your family, Fabby!!

So beautiful. You always do the most gorgeous tablesettings. I adore the view out your window, it is magnificent. I think my very favorite vignette is that precious cupcake tin decorated with candles, a tiny tree and christmas balls. How fabulous and genius is that. Merry Christmas and God Bless.
