I love Fiesta ware but don't own any. It is hard to find old and I don't need to buy any new. Just love the odd pieces. Great color for 2010.

How pretty Patsy. Fiesta ware has the best colors. Stay warm and safe and have a wonderful weekend. Tell Bennie it is a soup day. LOL!

Patsy said...

Yes, he made bok choy soup for our lunch today.

I much prefer your colour Patsy. Nice to see that some products are still made in your own country. Most of our potteries have transferred production abroad. My dinner service is Wedgewood which has transferred production to Indonesia. I won't be buying any more!

So love Fiesta but own none. Yours is very pretty.
If we had donuts that looked this good, I'd have to try out the mug, too.

Have a beautiful weekend ~
Hugs, Marydon
