I was trying to be good. Make it about HIS birthday. I spent 15 bucks. 5 antique stores and all I spent was 15 dollars. He was going to spent whatever he wanted (within reason, of course :-). And I was going to be the soul of restraint.
But then he said "Don't they have exclusive Fiesta pieces at Dillard's?"
Oh no he didn't. He did not just INVITE me to go to Dillard's and buy a bunch of Fiesta on his birthday.
Okay, so maybe that's not *Exactly* what he said. But he knows me! He married me! He knows that I lose my mind over pretty kitchen junk!
Well, let me tell you, I had the Fiesta girl working overtime. Not really, but she did run to the back a couple of times, first to check if they had certain colors in the back. And second, for bubble wrap to wrap up all my pretty rice bowls.

Another fun thing was there were other Fiesta fans standing in line in front of me, checking out my loot. We chatted a little & coo'd over the display plate they had of the new color, Flamingo. Hooray for shared dish dork-ery!
But not to be outdone, Vintage Fiesta once again exerts itself into my life -and cabinets- when I least expect it. Take a look at the price sticker.
|1 dollar a piece!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!|
Apparently the universe really, really wants me to have a vintage Fiesta relish tray. Otherwise, I could not even attempt to explain how I've gotten all the inserts in about a months time, without trying AT ALL.
That center insert was from a separate trip, but was only 8 dollars. So I have 12 bucks total in this? Holy cats! Just out of curiousity, I checked replacements.com to see what it would cost to get the missing tray in Cobalt blue.
Just a mere $99.95..........
Below, I'm faking it by putting them on a Cobalt dinner plate. Maybe someday I'll have the real thing :-)

So that's how this weekend ends for us. Tomorrow is back to the grind. But for the rest of the world, enjoy your Sunday off, if you have it, and have a great rest of the weekend!
Happy treasure hunting!
