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.

This was a gift for a friend recently. It is a boot flower vase with a beautiful display of flowers created by Phyllis at Hen House in Olathe. She is awesome. If you ever need a stunning arrangement, give Phyllis a call.

HOLA!

My birthday was in March. I have been meaning to post some pics, and I am not proud. I will wear the sombrero and you will be envious. This is for you Donna Louise, Debbie, Susie, and Robin!

Happy Summer!
