I woke up this morning with no idea the good people at Homer Laughlin were going to rock my world today. First the good news, they introduced a new color today, Poppy. It is a very sassy red that looks very similar to the vintage fiestaware red from the 1930s. You know the red that had the distinction of being just a little radioactive. The color got pulled because of that added ingredient (good decision). I guess the company decided it was high time to bring back the color sans radioactivity. A very vibrant color it is, I am sure a nice selection will come to live with the rest of my collection.
After getting over the excitement of a new color I read a little further on the announcement and was shocked to hear they will be discontinuing my favorite color, flamingo. I know you think I wailed and gnashed my teeth, but I did not. I decided I just need to make sure to stock up on the flamingo fiestaware pieces, I want. This, of course, means I will need to take a trip to Cornucopia, the local purveyor of brightly colored dishes, and do some shopping. That thought made me happy, very happy.
