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.

FABBY: Merry Christmas with Love!

Hello sweet friends!

            This post is specially to wish you, my dear and wonderful blog friends a very happy and blessed Christmas with all your dear families.

I will pray for all of you dearest blog friends to keep you safe and well and to thank God for knowing you, my life would be dry without blogging about what I love most, the home and not knowing you; because our daily visits make me sooo happy! 

All I have to do is open my 'ciber box' and I know I will find you inside it and will immediately know how you are all doing, and of course, look and get inspired learning so much from looking at all your amazing posts, about so many topics, let these be tablescaping, food, decorating, crafts, religion, etc....even if old Martha Stewart thinks we don't give out accurate recipes and info. I know it's not true, I have proved it, time and time over, as I have never learned so much from any magazine, more than I have from your fabulous posts!

Therefore, this would be my last 'Christmas 2013' table mostly to share with you my favorite holiday embroidered Spanish tablecloth I bought several years ago and where I will be setting our "Christmas Eve dinner to celebrate the coming of our Saviour The King Jesus Christ."

Lots of love and happiness this Christmas 2013, from my house to yours.

The tablecloth is made of a thick satin material and machine embroidered.

Besides the red and little green embroidery, it is also embroidered with metallic threads where the flames of the candles are and throughout the embroidery as you can see here..

A better close up. The mugs are from our past Factory.

The gold, green and red glasses are Czech-Bohemian, vintage. I broke a green one early this year at a luncheon while washing it...sniff,sniff...

Here you can appreciate the embroidery with gold metallic threads as well.

Again, many happiness and blessings this Christmas for all of you, dearest friends.
Thank you so much for your kindness.


I will be joining some parties, for which I thank the wonderful and gracious hostesses for having them up so close to Christmas.
