Rosary Gathering, January 2016

Hello sweet friends!

I want to say that we did pray for the friends that requested for the health and wellness of their loved ones that are sick and going through hard times because of it... and you know who you are.

Don't worry, I know sweet Jesus always listens!

Like I have explained in the two years of praying the 'Holy Rosary,' that after we have done our prayers and asked Him to protect the world of so much wars and for the sick of our families and yours, we usually proceed to the dining room for a very humble tea with a small assortment of breads, cheese and home made jam.

I used my white 'Italian Tognana' teacups and saucers. The white salad plates I bought separately specially for tea time use.

Blessings my friends.

White and blue table topper.

A very unusual and cute, white, tall container in the back, resembling a 'milk carton,' and it is exactly for milk, as some ladies love to have their Latte.

I also found a small carton container in the likes for cream. Both on the local super market last year sometime.

I recently bought the centerpiece flower vase, or small planter at the Chinese store on sale and quite inexpensive. Love the three small feet!
A small update on baby Maxima at two months old.
We are crazy about her!
And look at this angel! We are so blessed and so happy for our dearest daughter Alexandra and her husband.

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

The Scoop



  1. Bonjour ma chère Fabby,

    Je suis heureuse d'admirer ta petite-fille. Elle est un véritable petit ange, vraiment magnifique ! Toutes mes félicitations aux parents et bravo à toi pour ce grade dans la hiérarchie familiale.

    J'aime la délicatesse de ces tasses blanches... ainsi que le pot à lait. Très original.
    Je crois que je vais venir m'installer parmi vous !

    Merci pour ce délicat billet.

    Gros bisous ♡

  2. First, your little angel - and she is truly angelic....though I see a twinkle in her eyes in the first photo. Grandchildren are such a wonderful gift, and granddaughter is certainly extra-special!
    I am always attracted to a blue and white table. I love colour, but the serenity of blue and white is lovely. Very appropriate for a Rosary Gathering!

  3. Another lovely table setting, Fabby. Baby Maxima is adorable!

  4. Every time you set a table it is just beautiful, Fabby. You have wonderful taste! LOOK at that sweet baby Maxima! She is just darling- I bet you love her to pieces. Thank you for the prayers- I know you said we were included in them. I am humbled by that. Trying to get a few blog visits in tonight while hubby is feeling good. xo Diana

  5. Fabby, your precious new granddaughter is adorable. I know you and your family are happy and proud.
    Your rosary teas are always special. Such a nice tradition.
    Have a great weekend ahead.

    Thanks for Sharing Your Cup!

  7. Looks like you had another nice gathering. The Italian dishes are pretty and I like the blue tablecloth. Love the pictures of Maxima! She's beautiful- what a bundle of joy!

  8. Oh Dear Fabby, that grandgirl is beautiful! I could reach through this computer and kiss her little face! She looks as though she is dripping with sugar! As always, your table setting is beautiful. And I wish I had a piece of that bread right now!!! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  9. Oh, Fabby, your little granddaughter is darling! What joy she will bring to you all. Your table setting is lovely as always and the blue and white is very nice. Thank you for sharing with us and have a wonderful weekend.

    Well, the fact that you gather for praying the Rosary is already wonderful and your setting for simple tea in white and blue is lovely too.

  17. What a nice way to spend time praying with a group of friends or family. It is a celebration. I love the simplicity.

  18. It makes me feel good to hear when folks offer prayer and support to others. I keep a prayer list and say the prayers but it reminds me to check with folks I have agreed to pray for. Love the beautiful baby. Nothing grander.

  19. Praying the rosary for those who are in need and for world peace is a wonderful way to reach God through our blessed Mother, Fabby. God bless you! Your new granddaughter is so beautiful!
