When I saw how long it had been since I posted on my blog, I was surprises. Unfortunately, time just gets away from all of us and it has obviously happened to me.
Here are some tidbits I have encountered over the past several months that may be of interest:
The follow up piece for the 75th Anniversary collection is a 19.25 inch serving platter. This beautiful Marigold piece is a great complement to last year's three piece baking bowl set!
This year Fiesta introduces the second of three celebratory pieces leading up to the 75th anniversary of the brand in 2011...It's a 19.25 inch Serving Platter! This is in addition to last year's introduction, the 3 pc. Baking Bowl Set , three perfectly large nested shapes, are now available! You had better get them while they last because these pieces in the newly unveiled anniversary year color - Marigold - for a mere 75 weeks. So after September 1, 2009 the Marigold baking bowls will no longer be available. The Marigold serving platter will be officially retired on September 1, 2010. Order yours today!
Word on the street is the Evergreen is the color on the chopping block for 2010. There has been no official word of the new color (other than it will not be pink of any shade) or what color will retire, but many of the large retailers have already discontinued Evergreen, so time will only tell. Unfortunately, at least in my opinion, Evergreen just never hit the right spot. It seems like HLC is trying to recreate colors that were short run, limited edition colors, such as juniper, lilac and chartreuse, but have failed so far in their attempts. . .at least with evergreen and heather. Lemongrass does seem to be a hit so far.
Iced Tea Spoons & Hostess Sets
Some of the latest licensed accessory pieces to hit the chopping block, appear to be the iced tea spoons and hostess sets. I have it direct from HLC that the iced tea spoons have been officially discontinued. The hostess sets appear to be headed in that direction, at least in the solid colors, if the rumor I heard is true. Only time will tell. You can purchase both of these items from www.ladishes.com.
I hope all of you have a Wonderful, Happy and Prosperous New Year!
