FABBY: My Mother's Day gift

Hello sweet friends!

I'm so glad all of the ladies I've visited enjoyed a lovely Mother's Day weekend.

I received  a very pretty set of china for eight place settings from what I thought it was from my DDs; but it so happened I did receive it from sweet Mr. Living as the girls had more personal gifts for me.

Here I placed it in our kitchen nook's table to share it, along with a delicious dessert I did for my mom's lunch today...and yes, it is easy as one two three, but don't kid yourself, it is simply delicious!

I got the recipe and Pinned it from bloggy friend: 
 "Ms. Toody Goo Shoes"  Pan-Baked, Lemon-Almond Tart.

I do love my new china in emerald green and yes, it's a color I don't own.
A very pretty set of dishes made in China specially for 'Sukasa,' a great home store and with their own label 'HOUS.'
I love the wonderful things for the home they carry. Great items for decorating the home and the table, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, etc.

Here is my new set of china for eight, plus a tea set and a serving bowl and platter.

I love the three piece tea set


Delicious "Pan-Baked, Lemon-Almond Tart"

Recipe from Blog: 'Ms Toody Goo Shoes'

I love the emerald green in the china with a pretty basket weave pattern to it.

My new Spring look on the side buffet.
I like two teapots, so I added my vintage English one with some small green leaves around it.

Thank you so much sweet and kind friends for visiting me and leaving a comment; you know you always make my day!

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

  1. What a gorgeous new set for your collection Fabby! I'm so glad you had a wonderful mothers day since you truly deserve it!

  2. Love these dishes, Fabby! They remind me very much of the first 'real' set of dishes I bought when we were first setting up house (of course they were in blue though, ha). The tart sounds lemons and almonds!

  3. That is such a pretty set, and you even got serving pieces!!! Thoughtful hubby you have!! The green is so fresh and the design so the shape of the cups and even saucers too.....I get so tired of mugs and I never use them for guests in the dining room. Enjoy the new pretties.....

  4. I love it its clean and simple but full of color the teapot is indeed lovely. I really like it Happy Thursday with love Janice

  5. Fabby, I love your new dishware! Sukasa is the brand, I think, of some of the tartan plaid pieces I found for the holidays. That green is just so spring, so perfect, and so is your tablescape. I saw that lemon almond tart featured in blogland and it made my mouth water - yours, too, I take it. ;)

  6. Hi Fabby! Oh, your new green dishes are so pretty and springy looking! And to think you have the tea set too! Your lemon tart looks so delicious! Hope you're doing well.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;0


  7. This is a awesome gift you have received. Love the colour and the way you have placed them.Truly wonderful. Love and hugs..Sujatha:)

  8. Dearest Fabby,
    Very fresh and happy looking green dinner ware! Perfect gift indeed and with the pan baked lemon and almond tart it looks so festive.
    Hugs to you sweet friend.

  9. Your table is beautiful - the dishes are so pretty! I'm so happy you made the Lemon-Almond tart, and enjoyed it! It's great to see it on your table! Thank you for the shout-out, and the link back to my recipe!

  10. What a beatiful gift for Mother' s Day! Your china with the bright green is a pretty color and will be fun to mix with other china patterns The teaset is just so lovely on your buffet. Have a great weekend!


  11. Ooh I love the fresh bright color of these green dishes! You always make nice desserts- that tart sounds and looks too good!

  12. Your table is beautiful! The green is stunning. So peaceful and fresh looking. Valerie

  13. I am drolling with the Spring color you have own now, Fabby.

    They are as many said "Gorgeous".

    Wishing I can just drive over to yours.

    Have a great Sunday, mi Linda.


  14. Those dishes are so fresh and springy! Love this table.

  15. Wow Fabby. What a fabulous and gorgeous gift. Hubby knows the way to your heart for sure.

    I love the shade of green. So perfect for spring and summer. Glad you had such a nice Mother's Day.



  16. Beautiful Fabby.

    God bless your week.


  17. Whoo Fabby, what a beautiful set. Love this shade of green!!

    Thanks for hopping by hope your having a lovely Monday :):)

  18. I have been dreaming of acquiring an informal but happy looking and inducing new set. This one is perfect and very along the lines I wanted mine to be.
    How wonderful to have family and friends that know your heart wishes even when you don't know yourself. Yet. ahahahah
    It suits the joyful and happy you.
    And I would never thought to mix it with more traditional piece like you did with your precious coffee pot. But then I'm no Fabby who is, besides everything else, a very adventurous soul.
    Lovely and I look forward to see this set over and over in your whimsy creations.

  19. Such gorgeous dishes! Your husband did well! Such a sweetheart, Fabby, to always be taking care of others with treats of food and beautifully set tables.

  20. Your dishes are SO pretty and perfect for spring and summer! Hope to see them again in another setting soon. Your tart sounds delicious. I recently bought a large tart pan so I may be giving your recipe a try!

  21. Fabby: You needed those new dishes. They are so beautiful. Love the green spring color. Have a wonderful week. Hugs, Martha

  22. Very nice, Fabby! Glad to see that you were spoiled on Mother's Day.

  23. Well, I'm turning green at this very moment! :) Gorgeous set as always, Fabby. The weave-basket pattern is so pretty too. Your table is fun and vibrant and the tart just delicious!
    Hugs my friend!

  24. Such a happy green to display on a Spring table ... The tart look delicious too...I'm so glad that you had a wonderful Mother's day...Hugs

  25. Green dinnerware! I love it! When I first saw it I thought it was green with white polka dots, but I like this design so much better. We tablescapers are easy to please, aren't we? Just buy us a set of dishes.

  26. Pretty dishes Fabby! Thanks for joining Home Sweet Home!

  27. Oh, the plates are so pretty. I love the fresh green! You will enjoy those. Happy Mother's Day, late!!
