Fiesta!

Do you like Fiestaware? I have always loved the great colors and fun, playful look! Especially like that they're even durable enough for diners to use and that they're made in the USA. Many years ago I made the decision to stick with white dishes but I do always enjoy keeping up with Fiesta and look forward to the new color each year. Country Living did this little article on it in the September 2014 edition, thought I'd share a quick peek:@)
 You can click on the photos to make reading a little easier-oops sorry folks, I see it doesn't
 I can't believe they chose to put the coveted relish tray in the spine where you can't see a great pic of it!
 Just sharing a fun little snippet this morning...
Have a colorful day:@)

  1. As much as I love color I don't have any Fiesta ware, and didn't know the colors changed and varied, what a fun romp through dish history!

  3. My mother's every day dishes were Fiesta ware. She had eight place settings, each a different color. My sisters and I actually enjoyed setting the table and always mixed and matched the colors. I, too, have all white every day dishes.

    Best,
    Bonnie

  5. I love my different colorful Fiesta Ware that my kids gave me for my birthday. Seeing those dishes is like a rainbow of happy colors and I can choose what color I want each day. Fun!

  6. I love Fiesta Ware and one of my greatest thrifty finds was a stack of lunch plates in a rainbow of colors from the 70's. Makes me smile each time I use them! I'll have to check my new copy of Country Living for this article.
    hugs,

  9. All my dishes are white, too, but if I went rogue, I'd definitely stock up on some Fiestaware!

  10. Thanks for sharing this article, Lynn. A few words of encouragement from a Fiesta collector: the prices in this article are SUPER inflated. Most of these pieces can be found for much less money. Don't be afraid to take the plunge!

  12. I've always loved the cheery colors of fiestaware Lynn. Kohl's stocks it and the colors look so pretty displayed together in a hutch or cupboard!

  13. Believe it or not, with all my many (too many?) dishes, I don't have a bit of fiestaware. I do love to look at it and love the way it pops on a table. I used to visit a blog every Tablescape Thursday where all she used was fiestaware. She was so great at picking out the perfect vintage tablecloths to go with it.

    (I don't do T.T. much if at all anymore. I miss it. It was so fun!)

  14. I have none of the real stuff, but I did manage to pick up 10 wannabe plates at a garage sale. They work for me!

  15. Hi Lynn, all my dishes are white and sometimes I think it would be nice to have a bowl or serving dish that is colorful. Beautiful dishes!

  16. I also like Fiestaware but, sadly, don't own a piece of it. The house we rented in the OBX had these dishes in all different coloras, and I could see how durable they are!

  17. I have loved Fiestaware for years! When they re-entered the market several years ago (new production), I started getting a couple of sets here and there. They became my everyday dishes. I'm not sure what my count is now, but at least twenty complete sets. I've always just purchased one set of each color and have had so much fun mixing and matching. I refer to them as my "happy dishes." What a neat article, which sadly I missed, so thank you for sharing.
