May Rosary Tea

Hello sweet friends!

    I haven't had much time to post lately, it's been a whirlwind of a time so far for me, but just the same here I am a little late with my 'May Rosary' table setting post. 

The food is very humble in this case, just bread, home made jams and cheese; of course tea or coffee; because the main purpose is to pray for our families and friends, for the war torn countries in the world and of course, our own countries and the sick in the family and friends, so our Lord Jesus Christ can bless us and cure us with His infinite goodness.

I am sharing a few pics I took, specially cause I used my 'hand made' and hand decorated pottery, designed by us back at our own ceramic factory, Monte Turi.

I've explained many times before, but the inspiration for the decorations of each and every set was based on the indigenous people of Ecuador's apparel, which is all hand 

embroidered, specially the women's clothing, blouses and skirts and some of the men's shirts.

I used the soup tureen with eight handles as a centerpiece flower vase. 

The two bowls with fruits in the lid are for the jams

The salad plate and teacup; of course, this one is a complete set for 18 place settings and many, many serving pieces.

There are 350 pieces to this set I once posted them all!

Everything is 'hand decorated' by artists we hired and hand made... by this I mean, by talented professional who were experts using a 'potters-wheel,' yes, a 'potters-wheel,' by hand, which means NOT using molds.

Most of the forms of the pieces were taught by the Spanish over 100 years ago and they all had a sheep, a cow, a duck, different animals in the lids

I placed my yellow 'silk moire' tablecloth I recicled from the living room curtains after I replaced them with Hunter Douglas shades, a few years ago.

Thank you for your sweet comments dear friends, you always make my day!

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