Holy Week and Easter Table 2016

Hello sweet friends!

   Well, I'm finally over with my cold and cough, it's been five days of a very uncomfortable situation.

I created a tablescape specially for Holy Week because there's a delicious harvest soup that it's served at Holy Friday. It's made of many fresh grains and it's served with a fish stew sort of and we call it 'escabeche.'

My table is not fun or cute cause I haven't those darling elements for Spring and the adorable bunny plates most of you have. Therefore, my table is centered in the religious spirit of Lent mostly with a centerpiece I created for this purpose, along with my mother's Polish 'Warvel' china she parted with in my behalf a couple of years ago; purple stems, purple chargers and under cloth.

We will be four this Holy Friday and perhaps Easter as well, along with mother and a friend.
It's amazing we're at the beginning of the Spring season and already around the corner from Easter Sunday!

Wishing you and yours a 'Peaceful Holy Week and a very Happy Easter.'

                                     Many blessings for all of you my dear friends this Easter Sunday when HE is RISEN.

I used some purple for this Holy Week season in the stems, under cloth and the chargers are very purple but the pics don't give them justice, they look very dark.

'Warvel Polish' china my mom gave me couple of years ago.

The centerpiece has three cloches. One is with the cross and little sheeps under it and the others have nesting birds.

A close up. I hate all the glare, I even shot off the ceiling light.

The centerpiece tray evokes mostly the spirit of Lent. 

A little Spring in the buffet, using green and pink.


Well, I guess there had to be a couple of mischievous rabbits on top of my tea chest. 

'Warvel Polish' china and sunflower napkin ring for a Spring touch.


I placed underneath the lace tablecloth a purple cloth, which you can hardly see in the pics!


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

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

Don't You just Love Teapots?

Hello sweet friends!

I have a cold, which is getting better, so I've being in bed for four days.

Looking thru Pinterest the other day I saw a picture with many teapots on top of the dinner table, so I said to myself, what a great idea to take pictures with most of my teapots... I say most because I have an Oriental collection of eight, (they're all alike in different patterns), so I'm showing the different kind ones and mostly in porcelain, leaving the silver ones for another time.

Here they are... I was playing a little bit.
Hope to decorate for Easter next week.

Happy First Day of Spring 2016 everyone!

This pottery one, with a sheep on the lid is from our past ceramic company.

Up front a couple of antique ones from WWI, the Chinese with the dragon handle and from WWII the German one next to it... they both belong to teasets.

Most belong to tea sets and chinas.

Another hand decorated and with a little sheep on the lid.

Have a wonderful week ahead and Happy Easter.

Thank you for your sweet comments, you always make my day!

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