FABBY: Kitchen Christmas Tour 2013


Hello dear friends!

    I am all decked out in my house since a week ago, therefore, here is a small kitchen tour.
 
I did a few changes from last year's kitchen decor, but not much, in a way I down sized here from last Christmas.

Ok, here it is, I hope you like it.

The felt kitchen banner has teacups, an icecream in a sherbet and cupcakes; I thought it was perfect for the kitchen.

Lunch for today is all set for mother, Alejandro and me. These are our everyday holiday dishes.

Although  the weather is in the 70's and dry around here, my kitchen this year is snowed up inside, lol!

This is a place setting for one, as this is how I eat by myself sometimes. The glass canisters with sugar and rice contain our own car ornaments...mine is the green carrying the C'mas tree and the red glass one is Alejandro's, lol...




Place setting for one.

The station for tea, coffee, or hot chocolate... with mugs made at our former 'Ceramic Co.Monte Turi' and an adorable
Chinese red teapot I just found while shopping for groceries in the Mall the other day and was so inexpensive at $5 each, but I loved that bright Oriental red, so I bought seven for gifts too!



It's still "White C'mas"inside my kitchen window sills, lol...a smoking German man looking at us.
Love this Santa clock.

The lidded cheese plate was a gift from my mom several years ago. The footed bowl was made at our former Ceramic Co.

Our everyday holiday dishes. The white soup bowls are from our own past Factory too.

These cute potholders are 'pine-scented' and was a gift from my dear friend Stephanie.

The middle kitchen window sill is displayed with another small Nativity Scene to commemorate 'Baby Jesus Christ's birthday,' which is what this beautiful Christmas Holidays are all about in the Christian world.

The scene by the river, which is not with lots of water as it's a dry season.

Here is the area where I bake, as my double ovens are right next to it and the TV at the other end.

The sherbets, the pot and planter were made back at our Ceramic Factory as well.

Look how cute the C'mas hand embroidered tea napkins that were my Mil's, are!


Everything it's 'really looking like Christmas'


 
While I was at my daughter Sofia's town, I bought this pretty white Portuguese pitcher.

Here you have it, I hope you liked my kitchen holiday decor.


Thank you so much for your wonderful comments sweet friends, as you always make my day!

Thanking the gracious and lovely ladies for hosting such great parties each week.

LOVE,
FABBY

  19. Acá en Argentina todavía no se vive el espíritu de la Navidad, sí desde el 8 de diciembre que es el día de la virgen entonces se comienza a armar los árboles.

    Preciosas tazas, todo verde y rojo tan bien decorado. Me encanta la vista de la ciudad por el ventanal, lo hace más íntimo. Como si estuvieramos en tu casa.

    Una belleza como siempre Fabby. Beos
