Fiestaware mugs, all in a row. Yes, they still make Fiestaware. You can visit here to visit their online site. We live a couple of hours away from thier factory and have gone for thier 'sale' days. Its quite an experience...tiring but oh so worth it. We have more Fiesta ware dishes than you could imagine. So many, in fact, that we no longer go to the fall sale. Can you imagine this?, one year the dinner plates were four for a dollar!. When you get there (on sale weeks) there almost always is a long line. We have stood in line for an hour waiting to get in the clearance room. You carry your plastic crate with you and boy does it get heavy. No matter, its worth the trouble and dust and dirt. I'll have to try to post a picture of that room....maybe. Anyway, I am a big Fiesta ware fan. It is cheerful and quality and wears like iron. Some of the department stores now sell the 4 place setting for about $22. and thats a good price. We once toured the plant and got to see how they made Fiesta ware. That such a beautiful thing could come from a bunch of clay and water reminds me of this truth. "O LORD, Thou art our Father, we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we are all the work of thy hand. Isaiah 64:8

All the beautiful items in your home reflect the beauty in you Ms Maggie! Thanks so much for sharing parts of your home. I really enjoy seeing the items and rooms as it makes me feel like I have been there for a visit in person.

Maggie the oat pan rolls are made from oat meal and mixed by hand in a big bowl and baked in the oven and very very yummy.
