FABBY: Christmas Home Tour

Hello sweet friends!

       I'm sharing my house for Christmas 2013, although it's bit down sized from the last holiday and holidays in the past.

Never the less, I am pretty decked out and ready for the wonderful birth of "Jesus Christ  our

I hope you like it, as your comments always make my day!

There is a German pyramid up the book case, that my little girls love it when I lit the candles.
The skinny legged Victorian Family Christmas Carolers.. greet you at the entrance.

The antique Colonial Spanish leather trunk is decked out too.

The antique French foyer table facing the dining room.

...and here it's facing towards the living room.

The Meissen two tier server with faux fruit

The chandy with some bling with small gold wreaths.


Living room coffee table with a cloche and inside a Colonial Virgin Mary

The Den with the tree and mantel in the back.

Facing one of the couches.

One of the antique bombé French end tables done up with a German Santa lamp.

The other antique French end table done up with an Italian toy horse I love!

This antique console that was my dear Mil's;  I keep it at the entrance of the master bedroom.

Apothecary jar that was also from my Mother in Law. The small lamp was a gift  from mother for my birthday, two years ago.

The dining table which is how I normally keep it. Some holiday blini in the chairs.

The antique Italian chandelier with small wreath blinis. 

The antique Belgium buffet with an angel.

The antique English buffet.

There are more small touches here and there, but it'll be too many pics to bear!

Thank you so much for visiting me, you always make my day!

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

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.
