Fiesta, Fiesta!

In addition to magazines, decorating, jordan almonds and vintage wares, my mom has also instilled in me a deep-seeded appreciation for colored dishware, namely Fiestaware. It's been in the kitchens of both our cottage and downstate homes for as long as I can remember, in shades of mustard, tangerine, turquoise, pink, lime, eggplant and cherry. When I moved away to college, I was fortunate enough to be bequeathed a portion of that vibrantly colored ware. And yes, I did use something other than paper plates in college. Though admittedly, I did have a penchant for eating microwave popcorn out of paper coffee filters my freshman year...this may have had been why I was eventually given real bowls. Also, Mom wanted a new color scheme for her kitchen at home.

Since moving to New York I like to think some aspects of my life have evolved. However, my dishware collection is not one of them. The Fiestaware has prevailed. Below are some of the dishes currently in rotation.
Readers, I understand  you may be thinking something along the lines of "huh, what silly girl - why would she use such a little table to display her Fiestaware? It can only fit one table setting." Because this is the only table in my apartment, okay? The place is only big enough for a bistro table. Usually it's a serving place for wine bottles and sangria mix. There used to a coffee table in the apartment too, but it didn't work out. Awkwardly sized.








 Shake it like salt shaker, shake it like a salt shaker!
