Fiesta Time!

This is a sampling of Fiesta. My collection has grown since this picture was taken, and I don't display it all the time. Rather, I select pieces by color or holiday and display them in a table setting. Currently, my disc pitchers are around the tops of my cabinets, and I love them. My favorite colors in new Fiesta are persimmon, lilac, and sapphire. In vintage Fiesta, I love chartreuse and cobalt.

I'm thinking of starting a Fiesta collection. Are yours antique or new? I'll definitely go with new.

Cheri,
I have both old and new. I use my new Fiesta every day and the old Fiesta for special occasions. It is exciting to hunt for pieces, and some of the more common pieces are relatively inexpensive.
