FABBY: 300 Yr. Old Hacienda Tour 3

 The dining room with antique Viennese chairs.
 The table is all set for lunch with the dishes that were made at our former ceramic co., as some of you might recognized them by now. For my new friends, my husband owned a ceramic co. up to four years ago and I used to design the patterns of the dishes inspired by the indigenous women's apparels and the men's shirts as they  are embroidered in beautiful vivid colors.  The embroidery varies from the different regions of Ecuador....  I had 14 designs on sale. They were hand made by potters -wheel, like in the movie Ghost, lol... and each piece hand decorated, as well.
 A beautiful vintage buffet with red roses arranged on a tin antique pitcher.
The beautiful painting of a valley of another section of here called Paute, was painted by a famous artist uncle they had.  I will post about him one day in the future.  The pretty tray is English vintage too.

 A very old hutch with some of my Sil's English transfer ware pink things.
This lovely crystal and gold pitcher is an antique from the 20's, it's also a family heirloom.
 The gorgeous pink hydrangeas are from the gardens, I thought it'll look pretty next to the pink heirloom transfer ware.
A small cart with the salad and hot sauce.
 They already had this built in original shelves, but my SIL  framed it with an antique carved wood frame,  here she likes display part of the dishes that we made and designed back at our former Ceramic Co.
Hubs shot a pic of me passing by the dishes.
This design came out of the indigenous women's blouses.  Those two little bowls with a chili on it are for the hot sauce.

Before the table was set for dinner, there was this beautiful embroidered tablecloth in brown.

A romantic window taken from the outside and you can see the pink rose arrangement in the blue vase.
An antique table with a pretty arrangement with a couple of great looking ceramic the back closed porch.

 In the enchanted garden a beautiful gazebo sorrounded by vegetation with an iron table and chairs, just wonderful to have afternoon tea there. 
   Hi again!  I promised I will show some of the interiors of my Bil and Sil's the 300 yr. old hacienda, as if I ever show you everything there is to see here, in such a big house, there will be too many pictures and it will be very boring, lol. 
Thank you for coming to the last tour of my Bil and Sil's beautiful 300 year old, restored hacienda.  You've been wonderful and so generous going to the tour with me, as I just love this enchanted and unique place... this prompted me to want to share it with you all, my terrific blog friends, as I knew you would enjoy it.

Lots of hugs,

I appreciate you wonderful hostesses for having me once more to show off this magnificent hacienda at your terrific and fun parties.  Thank you ladies.

  1. Hi Fabby,

    First of all, I love this garden at the hacienda!! Giant trees that look hundreds of years old and beautiful flower beds.

    And the inside -- goodness. They have so much beautiful antique furniture, and dishes, of course. All the lovely flower arrangements; it's all just gorgeous! Fun to see that your hubby captured a picture of you. :)

    Thanks for sharing and have a great day!


  2. How very beautiful! The brown & white table cloth, the incredible set of dishes - so rich in their color, the beautiful shelves and cabinets displaying them, the lovely flowers...

    It's been a wonderful tour (guess I started at the end). I've been away for several days this past week so will go back and begin the tour at the beginning.

    (It was good to see a picture of YOU, too!)

  3. Beautiful! It has the wonderful feel of romance.


  4. beautiful again, as usual. I love the colorful hen and roaster. And the built in with the china, OMG. Richard from My Old Historic House.

  5. OMGOSH- This is just breathtakingly beautiful...and you're pretty darned cute yourself. I love all the pictures you have shown here of this gorgeous home of your family. xo Diana

  6. Just gorgeous Fabby! Everything is so beautiful!

  7. Hi Fabby,
    I loved the tour inside and outside this fabulous family home.
    All that green in the gardens is of fairy tales and the furniture and china inside made me have my eyes wide opened.
    Oh those Austrian chairs!!! (sigh)
    Thanks for sharing all these beauties.

  8. Fabby, thanks for giving us a tour again of this beautiful hacienda! The dining room is beautiful and those gorgeous dishes! WOW. The house must smell divine with all the bouquets of roses around. It's nice to see a picture of you too! I hope you have a lovely week. Blessings, Pamela

  9. Fabby, what gorgeous ceramics!! The colors are so pretty. I love all of the flowers and the transferware! The built-in is just stunning!

  10. FABBY,
    Blessings to you!
    Love the post. Wonderful to see these treasures.

    God bless,
    d from Kansas

  11. Faby en este tour he visto cosas muy bonitas. La vajilla es espectacular, qué decir de los paisajes que muestras!
    Beso y espero acompañarte en otro paseito

  12. Hi Fabby,
    that all looks like a different world. So tropical and colorful. And everywhere those beautiful roses. Whenever I see a rose bouquet now, I think they are from this rose farm. And may be they are truly from Equador. The whole house is beautiful. Just the right place to display the wonderful ceramics from your company. And you look so sympathetic. Have a wonderful week.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  13. My heaven in my next life §;-)

    Your so pretty on that pix.

    Happy Sunday, dear Fabby. Sorry, I am so lazy and busy nowadays. Too hard to cope up all my activities.

    God Bless, chicka mia.

  33. Hi Fabby-

    This is one beautiful living space. I love the chandelier and chairs in the dining room and those colorful dishes are to die for. I'd be too afraid to eat on them because it's obvious someone put a lot of work into making them.

    Love, love that window with the pink flowers too.

    Thank you for linking up to my party, but once again I did not see a link back. This is a guideline for joining my party, so please make sure you remember that before linking up. Thanks in advance for adding the link back to this post and remembering to add the link next week before you sign up.

  37. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful old family home with us!! I enjoyed touring it with you so much. Everything is beautiful, so many things to comment on, I don't know where to begin.....the house itself is just gorgeous...I like the look of homey and inviting! That china is charming...I love the flowers
    in it and all the special designs in it, and such pretty colors!
    The very old table on the back porch is certainly special, too. The flower
    arrangemnts are lovely nice that you have fresh flowers year round
    and can use them for your own arrange-
    The grounds are magnificent, too. All of those old tress and the plants
    everwhere. I especially liked the look of the gazebo on the grounds!!
    What fun to find a picture of YOU in among the other photos! You are just as pretty as I thought you would be!!
    I went back to the first post on the
    house and the gardens and read every-
    thing over then read the new post so I would have a clearer picture of it all....I am sure you enjoy going there to visit, so much beauty!
    Again, thank you, dear Fabby, for the marvelous tour of this place!
    Hugs, Francy

  38. Are you from an original Spanish family?
    Everything is so beautiful... but you are the MOST beautiful!!!

  39. WOW. the design on the glassware is wonderful. all of your pictures caused quite a bit of drool on my keyboard.

  40. Fabby, this hacienda is amazing! Just gorgeous. I LOVE the dishes on the table and in the hutch that you designed! The garden is beautiful too. What treasures they ahve. Thanks for the tour. XO, Pinky

  41. Fabby....I have been looking over all
    of the posts again, I enjoy seeing all
    of the beautiful things!...I just have to tell you that the antique vase in cranberry glass with gold on the top is beautiful!!
    And that idea your SIL had to put a border around the shelving made it look magnificent. With those pretty dishes on the shelves, the border just makes them POP out....
    Everything in that house is special..
    Thanks again for sharing this with us.
    Hugs, Francy

  42. Absolutely beautiful. The garden is fabulous!

  43. Ooooh, I'd like copies of the sideboard and hutch please! What beautiful pieces of furniture. I'm so glad you shared this hacienda. It is a treasure indeed, and I'm so happy it's being cared for and enjoyed.

  44. Oh my...I am speechless, Fabby! All that wonderfully carved wood just makes me want to reach out & run my hands over it. Those beautiful dishes, created by you & your husband, are spectacular & look fabulous, displayed in that niche. I loved the shot of you standing beside them & it really gives a good perspective as to how high that shelve really is!

    All those fragrant & glorious flowers just make me swoon! Such a special place!! Thanks for taking us there with you.


  45. Had to come for a second look! Joann
