FABBY: August Tea for the Rosary Prayers

Hello sweet friends!

I host in my house every month, the last Wednesday of each month a Rosary prayer with some friends.

I did pray for the friends that requested and I'm here to do so, always.

I used my very colorful, pottery dishes made back at my hubby's Ceramic factory he owned for thirty years and he sold it almost seven years ago. The tablecloth used was the one I hand embroidered in orange Fall leaves, some fifteen years ago .

This pottery has lots of oranges, yellows, browns and blues among other colors. It's my favorite china come Thanksgiving because of the warm colors and it looks good with pumpkins. I haven't used pumpkins here yet, but it's sort of a transition to Autumn tea table.

Ok, with that said, here it is.

This pottery set was made and decorated at our former Ceramic Co. Monte Turi. I have 350 pieces of it. Here is the link of the post I did a couple of years ago, in case you'd like to see them all:

I used to design the decorations inspired in the Indigenous people of Ecuador's embroidered clothing. We had 15 designs that were made completely by hand by artists we had working for us.

I hand embroidered this tablecloth in orange Autumn leaves, just for this set of dishes.

I always associated this pottery design with Fall because of the oranges, yellows, browns, greens and blues.

The embroidery in all four corners of the table linen is like this.

And the embroidery in the center of the tablecloth I purposely did it like this, in order to frame any centerpiece I would make.

A little half a papaya on the finial of the jam bowl; at your left.

Sheep, duck and fruits in the finials. The original Spanish designs had animals and fruit in the top of the lids of every piece.

A close up of some of the pieces specially for tea time.
 A little chicken, a half papaya and a cow on the lidded pieces.
Oh, I almost forgot to share this pic of my dearest daughter Alexandra in Mallorca-Spain expecting a little girl at seven months right now, who will be call 'Maxima.' 
We can't wait to see her as they are coming with Sergio tonight at 12pm at Guayaquil-International Airport.

We will go this Wednesday coming to dear daughter Sofia's house to meet them. She can't fly to Cuenca, where we live cause of the high altitude Andean city.

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

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

A special thanks to the wonderful and supportive sweet Beverly, that featured me last week at the great,
