A Spring Table

In an effort to cheer myself up from being sick with a sinus infection and bronchitis, I used a new to me cloth with bright colors. The Fiesta colors are Marigold, Lemongrass, Shamrock and White.




I walked the hubby through to make a roast. It was good but it was better when we shredded it to make flautas which we had for dinner tonight.
I hope Spring is really making its way to you in your part of the country.  We have warmed up to the 80's but with lots of wind and dust(more like dirt).
I will be joining Cuisine Kathleen for Let's Dish.  Be sure to stop by and comment on all the other participants.

  3. That truly IS a bright and cheerful tablecloth, Monica! It reminds me of "The Brady Bunch" for some reason! I have always liked the bright, fun images of the 60s and 70s.

    I'm so sorry you've not been feeling well. That's gotta suck! Just don't breathe in a lot of that crazy dust/dirt that's flying around down there or you'll STAY sick!!! It's till c-o-l-d here with nighttime temps dipping below freezing. It has been really rainy, too. We're really closing in on that rain deficit that has been building up over the last couple of years!!!!

    Get well soon, and have a good night!

      Thank you for the well wishes and stopping by.

  6. I saw lots of Fiestaware at Roundtop and couldn't help but think of you though I can't imagine what else you need for your wonderful collection. I always enjoy how you mix your colors.

    1. Thank you Diane! It was fun (a little exhausting) putting out different colors to see what would go with the cloth.

  12. Your table is so lovely. I love the bright spring/summer colors. The tablecloth looks so happy. Love the rows of flowers. Your Fiesta ware is so beautiful. I have a few pieces but I don't collect it. I do love and collect vintage Homer Laughlin but I so admire the colors of Fiesta Ware.
