  1. I love Fiesta Wear! So much happier to eat off of these than plain white plates.

  2. Drowsey: 'happier to eat off' - exactly! I'm happy just seeing them every time I open the cupboard.

  3. I'm happy seeing them on my screen. I was gonna collect these once upon a time. Now I don't have any room for more dishes. But I love it when I go somewhere that has them. Then I want to take pictures.

  4. Welcome to the Sunday Challenge, and may I add very nice start. I had no idea we had so many Canadians signed on, I think you are the 3rd. I have relatives in Hamilton and Branford. Anyway, thanks for the comment on my page, Later...Ed

  6. Ruth: They are lovely to look at, but are heavy dishes. And bulky. I'm collecting one at a time, old and new.

  9. There's something sorbet-like about those colors.

  10. Citizen: I love the way they all blend well together.
    Hmm, sorbet - I like that

  11. I'm just cooking up some pasta fagioli which would be perfect in one of those bowls.

  17. I am such a dunce. I would hear people refer to fiestaware and have no idea what they were talking about. Now I know, thank you. Great pic by the way and I do love the colors.

  20. Love this! Not just great colour but great composition! :)

  21. Regular Guy: Ahh, yes. I used to have a blue background and the snow falling showed up better on that. I changed it to yellow as I thought the photos showed better with that background. Now am not sure I like it and now realize the snow doesn't show up on yellow.

    But thanks, the light was a harder challenge than the colour.

  22. Flo: You're welcome. And thank you. Aren't the colours fabulous?

  23. Paula and J9: The blue is the only one I have a full set of, but I love to mix them up.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Char: thanks.

    Andrea: light and composition were the challenge for me, not colour!

  25. What a beautiful photo! I grew up eating off Fiesta ware - my mother mostly had navy blue and aqua - but they didn't seem to hold up well...When they started making them again my first impulse was to buy some - but I never could decide between all the beautiful colors! You chose well!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oliag: I also grew up with them at a cottage. I collect both old and new, but love the new colours best. You could get one of each - they look so great together, don't you think?

    And yes, some of the old don't hold up - well loved, perhaps?!
