Fiestaware obsessed

20130609-155322.jpg

I have an obsession with dishes. This may be putting it mildly. There is more than one complete set in our house, and I’m guessing I have enough plates to serve 70 people+. So, yes, a mild obsession. Other people get to stock their cupboards with sippy cups, I get the fun stuff:)

Some of my favourites are my Fiestaware. It’s the bright colours, the way they mix and match, the way a collection can build over the years.

It’s no secret I also enjoy taking photos of the meals we create and enjoy, and it may seem nuts, but I try to pick a plate or bowl colour that will make the food pop.

They even look good when the meal is done!

It’s been a few years now that I’ve been collecting Fiestaware and I’ve amassed a good mix of plates, bowls, and mugs. A few of the classic Fiesta pitchers have also joined the collection, along with a pizza platter, butter dish and most recently, some cutlery.

The cutlery was a Christmas present from my mom and I super love it! Not only do I love the colours, but they’ve got a nice weight to them – which is sort of an odd thing to notice, but it’s true.

The pitchers are the most versatile peices of the collection though. We use them for juice of course, but I’ve also used them for flowers, which is just so darn pretty!

    Oh, very cool! I love Fiestaware too, I don't have any though. I don't think they will ever go out of style either, I say "go for it"!

    Love those dishes - they are truly a classic. I have a bit of a dish obsession myself, so I'm with you there.
