Dishes, dishes, dishes........

Just can't help it - yellow is a great color. We keep getting more and more yellow dishes - from Mikasa to Waechtersbach to Fiesta to Spode to Lenox and the list goes on and on. Yellow makes everything bright and cheery even on some of our more gloomy days (remember, we live behind the Redwood Curtain and the sun seems to have skipped us this Summer. Currently it is cloudy and cold with a temperature of 59 degrees - yes, it is truly Summer here, albeit sweatshirt weather but Summer nonetheless......The advantage is that the Winter temperature rarely goes below 40 degrees.)

Among the hundreds of Fiestaware dishes that Pat's daughter, Jennifer, left for us to play with last weekend, we pulled out the cobalt blue dinner and salad plates along with the yellow luncheon plates. Here's one of the setting that we came up with:

Just another view.

We have this flatware pattern by Noritake in gold, black, purple, white, brown and blue.

I love these white glasses. I finally found enough of them on eBay.

No matter what I did, I could not get a picture of this plate without the light shinning from above.

Yes, Pat, Jennifer and I both love this charger......

The signature Fiestaware detail of the plates......
The placemat has beautiful detail.
