One of my favorite bloggity buddies, Dr. Wifey, talked about needing new dishes a few days ago. I am always quick to jump in and recommend my everyday dishware, Fiestaware, by the Homer Laughlin China Co.

We registered for eight place settings of Fiestaware for our wedding waaaaaaaaay back in 1997. Since then, I've added five place settings and various pieces of serveware. I'm even more in love with my Fiesta than I was when I chose it!

OF COURSE SHE TOOK MY ADVICE--because I am the Queen of dishware!

Have I ever told you that I have six or seven different sets of dishes?

I don't.

Okay, I do.

I used to make fun of my Mother because she had umpteen millions sets of dishes. Now I'm pretty sure I have more than she does. Ooooops!

Look how handy my multi-color Fiestaware was when we were dying eggs!

Even though it's beautiful, the Fiestaware wasn't quite able to steal the show from these two !

My favorite dishes, back in the last marriage, were Fiestawares I got at a second hand store. I had a place setting in terracotta and one in teal. Didnt need anymore than the 2 sets since it was just the two of us.

When you say Fiesta, I think Margarita!! Dang.

I'm not that into dishes but I do love the Midge's hat.

I've loved Fiestaware since a dear friend of mine introduced me to them many years ago, but it's not dh's style, so we have the boring white and beige dishes. Ooh, I have to say though, that our beige dishes are square...which makes them pretty cool. I've also inherited my MIL's Candlewick dishes...SCORE!! Looove glassware dishes too.

I too am addicted to dishware. It is weird. I thought I was bad, I only have 5. They are in rotation too. I can't just have them, I need to switch em out. It would be many many more if my husband weren't so "practical".

We have Fiestaware here, too! I love the happy colors.

To Teresa R: Maybe you can get DH to compromise with the new SQUARE FIESTA?!

I have Wally World dishes and I HATE them. Despise them!

I'm trying to break them all on "accident" so that I'll have a good excuse to buy new ones.

Yours are beyond pretty!
