Walking Thru Halloween Memory Lane at Fabby's Living


Hello sweet friends!

I am going to have a busy last days of October, as dear daughter Alexandra, her hubby and baby Maxima are coming from Madrid to spend some time visiting us and for our granddaughter Cayetana's First Communion October 28th., which we'll be going next week to help dear daughter Sofia for the reception.

Then we will come back from the coast to our home in the Cuenca-high lands and I will be making a huge luncheon for them to greet the family and some good friends.

Then we will be back to the coast again to celebrate an early Christmas with Sil Sergio's elder mother and his family; so it all will be great fun but a very busy time for Alejandro en me.

I'm here sharing my past posts for Halloween at Fabby's Living and I had fun looking at the tablescapes, including my favo one with my grandgirls three years ago.

With that said.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE !

September Rosary & Fall Tour of the Kitchen


Hello sweet friends!

I hope all is well with you in the wake of so many natural disasters and tragedies in many places of the USA, Puerto Rico and the most devastating earthquake in Mexico city.

We have been praying very hard for everyone; since many of you know I host a Rosary prayer every last Wednesday of the month with at least ten friends and I'm sharing last Wednesday of September prayers.

I also decorated a 'little Fall' right in our kitchen, plus lunch for my mother, hubby and me set on our wooden old farm table, which came straight from our own farm before we downsized to this pent house apartment we love; so to keeps the memories of the beautiful 13 years we lived at our farm, where our two daughters grew up as well.

Here I'm sharing a little tour of my Fall kitchen, nothing big, but I as usual work around it every season.

With that said, here goes.


My plate rack done up with Fall color dishes.

The farm table set up for today's lunch for mother, hubby and me.


Fresh produce here at my wooden dough bowl.

Spanish colonial decorated china from our past Ceramic Co.

Bowl and sherbets for dessert.


The terracotta pot is for a chicken and veggies bake.

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

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

LOVE,
FABBY

First Fall Luncheon for my nephew


Hello sweet friends !

Our dear nephew is here visiting us from NYC, where he lives. He graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston two years ago. 

Now he resides and works in NYC as a 'Music Producer and Engineer' and we are so proud of him.

My first Fall 2017 table is fixed for six cause one guest confirmed after I took the pics, therefore, we are seven today, Monday...September 11, a very sad day Americans will never forget.

I invited him, his parents, my brother and his wife, hubby's sister... my mother, (his grandma) and a bother in law for a luncheon in his honor.

I'm preparing a special dish Daniel loves called 'Churrasco' which is beef stake with white rice, two fried eggs, potato fries and a lettuce, avocado salad with tomatoes and onions. Dessert will be mother's 'Sweet-plantain Cake,' we love. Wine and coffee.

I chose for a table setting my black and white pumpkins and pitcher which were DIYed last year for me by a good friend's husband... some of you might remember.
Calla as flowers to keep the white going with my white stone wear everyday china.

Continue prayers for Florida. May God bless Miami, Tampa and all the affected places from the devastating hurricane.
 
Prayers for the people of Mexico who underwent a horrific and devastating earthquake. Very, very sad times indeed.

This is my first share of "Fall white 2017" tablescape.


DIYed black and white 'MacKenzie-Childs style' pumpkins and old silver pitcher.



I arranged the centerpiece on a tray that goes with the chargers. Some natural dried fern branches.


I used here my white stone wear china. The napkin rings are some in a form of a sunflower and others in a dry leaf shape.

Some of you who follow me might have seen my $20 new soup tureen with Fleur de Lys.

More fall leaves napkin rings.


The calla-lily is from the garden of our condo.



Tea, coffee and dessert buffet setting.

I used the Calla to continue with the white and to keep a more manly style to the setting.


I'm making pineapple fresh juice for the Fleur de Lys white pitcher.



Thank you for your kind comments dear friends, you always make my day !

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

LOVE,
FABBY

August Rosary-Prayers for Texas


Hello sweet friends!

As most of the friends that follow me know that I hold a rosary prayer here at home, the last Wednesday of every month to pray for world peace, for Ecuador and the USA and for sure everyone in our families, as well as for friends that have requested and we are specially praying for a good blog friend as well, may she wins the battle she's enduring.

We are including prayers for Houston-Texas this month; hopping the flood provoked by hurricane Harvey's wrath to all the people in the affected zones that are enduring right now, as I type this words.

May our Lord, Jesus Christ with His power and Glory gives them the strength they need and that everyone is safe.
 
We also beg our Lord to make it stop very soon. Amen.

Blessings for Texas and to each one of you.






Meissen two tier centerpiece. 



Antique water pitcher with blue.





Beautiful antique hand-crochet tablecloth that belonged to Mr. Living's grandmother.

Thank you dear friends for your generous comments, you always make my day !

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

LOVE,
FABBY
