FABBY: A Simple Lace Tablescape

Hello sweet friends!

      I am joining Kathleen's at Let's Dish for her new challenge...a NEW table with NO Easter!

My table setting is simple, inspired in the lovely lace-cut work tablecloth, which I haven't used it yet and bought on sale last year sometime.

The reticulated chargers and teacup-saucers; my mother's lovely vintage aqua 'French Limoges' set of dishes and lace napkins to close this 'simple lace table scape.'

I hope you like it!

My inspiration for this table scape is this lovely lace cut work tablecloth I bought on sale last year.

Therefore, along with mother's French Limoges dishes she gifted me several years ago...I used reticulated chargers, lace napkins and the reticulated teacups and saucers, instead of the aqua ones.

The fresh bouquet of flowers I bought today in the grocery store for $. 1,15.
The etched stems are Viennese and I used only the wine ones, so to keep the setting in the 'ethereal side.'

I love the center lace in the cloth.

The Limoges dishes are aqua and ivory, (not white).

I adore fresh flowers and always have them at my house to cheer me up and enjoy them.

Alejandro gave me this past February for our 39th. Anniversary this gorgeous 'Fleur De Lys' Portuguese pitcher, which I can't seem to stop using it with flowers, lol!

The stack of dishes and ivory flatware to match, except the light made them appear yellow !

The napkins are ivory with lace too, as are the lacy saucers in the teacups.
The napkin rings are wooden animal print.

Here you have it, my contribution to "A new Tablescape for LET'S DISH" at,

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

Thank you Kathleen and the other hostesses for having me at their great parties.

FABBY: Easter Sunday Blessings!

Hello sweet friends!

"Christ the Lord is risen to-day,"
Sons of men and angels say.
Raise your joys and triumphs high;
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply.
(Charles Wesley)


I created this new vignette on my antique English buffet for the Easter season.
'Blue Danube' platter standing in the backdrop.

Vintage Dutch pewter teaset with tray.  Polish teacups with birds.
I saw the movie "The Son of God" Saturday and I cried the entire time until sweet Jesus got killed in the cross and resuscitated! The actor who portrayed Jesus was soo sweet, you thought you were looking at the real Messiah !

Then on Easter Sunday, after mass, we went in the evening to see "Noah," the movie and it was such an ugly disappointment...and grim movie! Noah was portrayed as a 'psychopath' seemed to me!
I didn't like it at all, as the real Noah in the Bible was not like this man in the movie!

'My humble reviews, lol!'

Have a wonderful week ahead and may our Lord Jesus Christ, who has risen to save us, guide us and care for us.... bless you and your homes always.

Thank you for your wishes and comments, you always make my day.

Thanks to the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties, too.
