I finally got sick and tired of my everyday dinnerware, so I bought new stuff. For those outside the U.S. (and maybe even those inside), this is Fiesta Ware. Purty, innit it? I'm still waiting for a place setting in "Sunflower" and I've got to pick a tenth color, but I can't decide whether to go with "Tangerine" or "Rose."

The colors here (from bottom to top): Cobalt, Peacock, Turquoise, Plum, Heather, Shamrock, Scarlet, and Persimmon.

The colorful bowl in the center sitting on the dinner plates is a piece I bought at Under One Roof in San Francisco several years ago. UOR is a non-profit that sells donated wares and gifts with all proceeds going to AIDS research. If you're ever in the Bay Area, check it out. The inventory is constantly changing.
