Happy Colors (part 1)
Some people collect dishes. I'm not one of them. My sister Becky has multiple sets of really great dishes. I always admire dishes, but they're just not something I spend money on. But for years I've been dreaming of getting rid of the old Martha Stewart K-Mart dishes we've had for the last 11 years. They weren't microwave save, they're chipped, we're missing a few of them. And the dishes I've coveted for the last 3-4 years are Fiesta Ware. And when I saw them on sale on Black Friday and remembered the fun money some sweet friends sent me, I knew that was how I was going to spend the money.
So I came home with 8 place settings in really, really happy colors: Peacock, Scarlet, Marigold, Shamrock. I love them. They brighten up the kitchen, and they're just plain fun to use.
I spent an embarrassing amount of time trying to take the right photographs of these over the last few days and finally decided I was just going to have to be happy with what I had.
And this picture is for my mom who didn't think we could fit them in our cabinets. :)
Next up on the wishlist is serving dishes!
