FABBY:Kitchen Spring Vignette

Hello sweet friends!

         I know most of you my friends and my family in the USA are so happy that Spring is officially here...although some of you are still stepping on lots of snow!
I know soon sunshine and flowers blooming would be your lovely sight to enjoy!

I have inspired myself in my fresh alstroemeria flowers, on my pretty white Portuguese pitcher with the Fleur de Lys; hubby bought for me a couple of months ago....and my other inspiration came from all of you and specially from 'Ivonne at Stone Gable.'... who has something pretty posted now for her "Thursday Spring Vignette Party."

Here it is, hope to see you there!  

                          HAPPY SPRING 2014!

The lovely alstroemerias, rabbits on top of my 'Cookies' stoneware jar and white dishes in a wicker tray.

Some faux eggs to represent Easter. Next to it a vintage English stoneware container with some vintage sterling flatware...both from my Mil.

I love my 'COOKIES' white jar. I bought three, one for me and for my two girls... sometime in the 90's.

My new white Italian Tognana teacups. I did a post a month ago explaining I bought 6 for $5,75...therefore I bought 12 for my Rosary prayer I host the 4th. Wednesday a month at my house and after we have a very simple and humble tea or coffee.

Love my Portuguese white pitcher as a flower vase.

I'm joining Ivonne for her "Thursday Spring Vignette Party at Stone Gable."

Hope you join too, it'll be very inspiring!

Flowers and rabbits, stealing my Springy can it get?!

My Mil's vintage lace doily.

Here you have it, my Spring vignette 2014!

Thank you lovely and sweet friends for visiting me, as your comments always make my day!

Thanking the lovely and gracious hostesses for having me at their great parties!

FABBY: Home Made Brioche for Breakfast

Hello sweet friends!

     Yesterday I got great news from sweet and pretty Deborah who had 3 MONTH Bloggiversary!
Can you just imagine, I didn't! She's such an expert blogger, very talented indeed, I love her blog and I have felt I've been friends with her for at least a year, lol!

If you have a chance here is where you can go visit this lovely lady's blog which is just like the title says:  "The Beautiful Matters."

I will make a post with the adorable teacup and saucer, plus a the lovely vintage tea towel, I won!

Now for my new post. Let me start by saying that you guys, my blogger friends are the best, ever! You Inspire me everyday in every sense. My favorite thing to do, besides decorating, is baking.

While visiting pretty April and her great food blog, 'Dimples & Delights,' I saw a fabulous recipe for: "Fool-Proof Homemade Brioche" and decided I need to do this and I did!

We loved it, specially hubby and I highly recommend you go get this recipe over at lovely April's food blog, because my bread is not as pretty as her perfectly braided one, with her tutorial an all, as mine is just a loaf!

Here goes, hope you like it!

I'm also sharing a picture with my darling grandgirls who went back home after spending two weeks with grandpa and me...and I miss them so much!

I'm so happy here with my two sweeties; Cayetana and Victoria, the oldest. Their mother came to fetch them and I miss them so much already!

Our breakfast table with the delicious 'Fool-Proof Homemade Brioche' by sweet April at her great food blog, "Dimples & Delight." I highly recommend you visit her and get fabulous recipes, and this Brioche is delicious!

Here you have Brioche shaped into a loaf, not like April's shaped into a gorgeous braid, with tutorial and all!

The yellow salad plate is from my everyday china, which has mugs to match in yellow in this case. The dishes came in four colors.

Strawberry marmalade at your right.

For our breakfast this morning I used the green salad plate and mug to match as here and the yellow set. The everyday china comes in four lovely colors.

The egg cups were made back at our ceramic factory.

You cannot imagine how delish this piece of bread is!

Here you have it, my homemade bread from great food blog:

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

Thanking the lovely and gracious hostesses for having me at their parties each week.
