Your right Fiesta dishes do make you smile. I use mine everyday. Reading friends blogs here lately has put a lot of smiles on my face.
Dan I just noticed tonight that for some reason that your site was not highlighted in your story that you wrote for me. I will correct this and I am so very sorry.
I have received some really nice emails about your story and I appreciate you taking the time to this for all of us.
Enjoyed so much your home in the Country Sampler Magazine...just wonderful
Take care

Your Fiestaware is so pretty. I always loved the orange. :) What makes me smile is Jaygen, our two year old grandson. I could just sit and watch him play for hours. Its fund to see how his mind works and listen to him talk. I love being a grandma!

Hope you have a fantastic Friday!

I LOVE Fiesta ware! My Grandparents owned a little farm in Eastern Washington. And one of my first memories was sitting at their sunny breakfast table set (very casually, mind you) with all those glorious bright dishes!

I'm blessed to have my "Oma's" dishes. She actually gave them to me back in the 70's and I have added a piece here and there,,and much to my dismay broken a piece here and there~!

I LOVE your Tea and coffee pots! I don't have any of those. I have a great big fruitbowl in aqua and some little dessert/footed fruit cups that I just adore...

The really do make me smile!

Thanks for sharing

I love the Fiesta collectibles. You are right they make you smile. Are these yours and do you use them? I always believe in using even the fancy dishes as life is so short.

What a wonderful collection of Fiesta. Party!
My grandson makes me smile, so do the pugs. Finishing a hooked rug makes me smile, too ~ especially when the binding is finally on!

I, too, collect Fiesta. I even won a giveaway from Homer Laughlin last year--4 completes place settings, brand new from the factory and they are gorgeous but we haven't taken them out of the boxes because we bought a service for 8 at an auction. Fiesta is our everyday service with the exception of the pitchers. I collect pitchers of all kinds and have numerous colors and sizes of Fiesta. I just love this stuff. I am curious about the relish dish. I haven't seen that piece before. very nice.....
