Festive Sunday Morning Coffee

Fiestaware-inspired coffee cups Fiestaware-inspired coffee cups These Fiestware-inspired coffee cups at our local diner always make me happy. I often trade with Evan if I like the color combo he receives better. Today, I chose the yellow and orange over the turquoise and orange. The man next to us scored a deep purple plate with a lighter eggplant cup, and I was a little jealous. My grandmother collected Fiestaware though we never used it when visiting. I always wanted to, which is perhaps why I enjoy these cups now. Kind of a lesson in not saving the pretty things for special occasions.

I love Fiestaware. I used to work in an office building that is a stone's throw from Union Square in downtown San Francisco. There's a super secret (and super fast) U.S. Post Office down there at Macy's, in the basement. Which is also where Macy's features its Fiestaware. As I'd pass the spread en route to the post office, I'd always stop to pick up a few pieces (as in fondle).

If only "the Big One" would strike already I'd have a legitimate reason to replace my collection of colorful dishes with some pretty new Fiestaware.

Just kidding about "the Big One"! But not about the fondling.

I'd love to have a cafe like that here. I love colourful table wear.

It's actually quite sturdy dishware. My mom uses an old set everyday and we have a newer set we've used the last ten years, nothing broken yet. It makes everything cheerier.

Those are great! I don't have any fiestaware but they make me want some.

I grew up in the town where Fiestaware / Homer Laughlin China is made! There's a great "seconds" store at the factory where they sell slightly chipped or deformed china for dirt cheap! Most of the time you can't even tell that there's anything wrong with them, unless you're collecting of course. Our whole kitchen cabinet was made up of Fiestaware seconds! I always find myself flipping over China to see where it's made now. Hazards of growing up in a town where it's produced I guess!
