A Fiesta of Riches....

If you'd read my earlier post about Victoria, you'd know about my sudden interest in Fiestaware. For those of you unfamiliar with the brand of dishes, Fiestaware (made by Homer Laughlin China Company) are these vibrant and brightly coloured art-deco style dishes that was first made in the States in 1936 and discontinued in 1973. Fiestaware was then reissued in 1986 and is one of the most popular everyday dishware in the States.

After some research, I found out that it's really hard to find Fiestaware retailers in Canada. It's really popular in the US, but some how it didn't really cross the border.

But look! The lovely Brenda offered to pick up some Fiestaware when she went down to the States this weekend. Plus, the dishes were on sale! I was the happiest gal in the world.

They are more vibrant and colourful than I'd imagined. These colours make me so giggly and giddy. They are solid, with great weight and thickness. I'm sipping tea from a 'scarlet' cup right now.

Please allow the following indulgent pictures.....

Honestly, I can stare at them all day.

Thank you Brenda!

  1. They are beautiful!
    I always liked pretty dishes but not good at maintaining. (sigh-) So I ended up using Corelle wares.
