FABBY: Mother's 84th. Birthday

Hello sweet friends!

          Now my wishes are that you all had a lovely, happy and specially peaceful Christmas 2013 and at the same token it's sad to see it go and looking forward for all the good things the new year will bring all of us... you, me, the world and everyone in it!  
May you all be very blessed in the new year that's knocking at our doors.

Today, December 27th. is my sweet and dearest mother's birthday and was also her mother's, my grand, whom I loved so much and for whom I was her first grandchild and I was so special to her. Anyway, mother came to have lunch with my daughter Alexandra, Alejandro and me and I did a lovely table for her birthday with her beautiful tablecloth, she gifted me for a big birthday.

Here it is..

I was too busy to take photos today, so this one is at mother's house at her Chrismas Eve luncheon.

Here I am with my dear mother who's 84th. birthday is today, along with Alejandro and my niece Carla.

A very simple table still with the holiday spirit.

The water glasses are hand etched from Venice, as are the wine glasses.

The last of the Christmas cookies.

The cookie platter, pitcher and centerpiece bowl were made at our former ceramic co. 


Thank you so much for all the lovely wishes I know your precious hearts will send mother, lol!

Thanking the wonderful hostesses for their great parties.

  16. Happy Birthday to your dear Mom, Fabby. What beautiful ladies you, your daughter and your Mom are, my friend. My own Mom is 84, also. I remember that pretty tablecloth from another post you did and I was swooning over it then.
    Thank you for your visit and wasn't that Christmas Bread delish? Thank you for thinking of me. I so appreciate it. xo

  17. Oh, Fabby...she looks like such a cool mom. :) And....she is beautiful. Many more birthdays are wished for her.
    I pray I can live until I am 84...that would mean I'd get to see my youngest grand, DEEDS, become a full grown woman. :))
