Hello sweet friends!
Three years ago I lost almost 20 pounds, not eating carbs and going to the gym for Spinning classes.
All that in four months, losing at a rate of close to 5 pounds per month. I mostly didn't eat carbs and had the 'Magic Weight Loss Veggie soup' everyday.
I shared the recipe of the soup at the end of this post
In the last year I've gained 5 pounds and it's been hard for me to lose them because of many social events, going out, dinner parties, etc.
Finally I said to myself: 'ok Fabby, for a month you're going to sacrifice even if you are invited for dinner at the 'White House,' lol... (Not all that true!)
So here I am back at almost 20 pounds less like three years ago, as I did manage to finally lose the 5 pounds that were the hardest.
|This pic was taken last Wednesday after I finally lost the 5 pounds that were bothering me for so long!|
I know , I know... I wear very high heels cause I'm not tall (5´2) and because I simply love them and I'm still very comfortable with them.
|The friends that follow me might remember I just posted about recycling my old chintz guest room drapes into a tablecloth. |
I also had some material left over to make a runner for the Summer too.
|I rearranged the vintage French table in the foyer by gathering some blue and white European pieces in the center.|
|Another angle of the table with the blue and white vignette.|
|Dutch Delft garnishing set at your left. In the middle a vintage English bowl. Delft bowl in back and in front a small box and onion bowl.|
French-Sevres lidded urn at your right.
|In the breakfast area I also rearranged the reticulated china with the Meissen two tier blue and white server, silver tray and vintage German urn.|
|In the Egyptian side piece I gathered all my mercury glass candle sticks together with the 'Capodimonte' tray with 'putti' and antique liquor bottles from my In-laws.|
Heirloom yellow 'Italian Art Deco' liquor bottle with six small glasses, not shown here.
|In the one end of the buffet I placed my antique Dutch pewter tea set and Lady Carlyle three tier server.|
At the other end of the same buffet I placed an Italian flower vase and the Shannon cake plate with dome. I love it here, so this is where it's finally gonna stay for a good while.
|And lastly... I was bored with this buffet that always had silver and sterling pieces for so long... so since a couple of months ago I placed the Asian lamp here and this enabled me to add different colors, as the cobalt blue Venetian crystal compote.|
Thank you so much my friends for your sweet and kind comments, you always make my day!
Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.
