Flamingo PINK!

Happy PINK Saturday everyone! 
And a very special PINK Saturday it is, 
as Ms Beverly is celebrating her Birthday! 

I hope all of you will stop by How Sweet the Sound and heap the Birthday Wishes on this special Lady!
I FINALLY have some PINK to share with you, my new Flamingo PINK Fiestaware! 

This color was just released by the Homer Laughlin Company and I could not wait to get my hands on a place setting of my own.
Don't you love this shade of PINK?!
Now, I realize this post might be a little boring for some. I don't own oodles and oodles of Fiestaware. In fact; I only own one place setting of 10 different colors. And I don't own oodles and oodles of fancy accessories or matching tablecloths. But I love my small collection of Fiestaware and think surely, they must be the "happiest" dishes ever manufactured!
Here are a few of my favorite color combinations with my new Flamingo Pink. 

Flamingo Pink, Turquoise and Sunflower Yellow

Flamingo PINK, Marigold and Sunflower Yellow

Flamingo PINK and Lemongrass

Do you have a favorite combination?

Now I need your help! Our yard is almost 2 acres and the majority has never been touched by human hands. I decided THIS was the Summer I was going to work on a small area and create a little tropical get-away which, I hope to show you next week. I'm stumped on one thing, the color for the door on the old garden shed.

 So which color do you like, the paler turquoise on the left, or the brighter turquoise on the right! 
I hope y'all have a Happy PINK Saturday and a fabulous weekend! xoxo Nan


  1. Nan,
    You crack me up! I love that you love this!!!!! I think it is really different....I only have 6 colors, but am hoping for some more down the road....:) I had the pastels they came out with in the 80's I got them from Betty Crocker points, hated them!!!! Scratched so easy....I keep to the vibrant colors now, and the primaries.....:)

  2. Nan, the lighter on the left captures me. Anxious to see the tropical garden but that door has to go PINK!, hands down ... chuckle!

    Have a beautiful weekend ~

  3. Hi Nan..I love the lighter one hands down!
    The fiesta is so nice...some of the best colors.
    Happy Pink Saturday..xo Tami

  4. I only have vases in Fiestaware and I'm thinking I definitely need to get one in this new pink!
    I like the lighter blue on the left the best. Good luck with your renovations!

  5. Love your china, so bright and cheerful and that flamingo is just so flamboyant. Re your door - how can you even THINK of pastel? Go for it, and choose the bright one. Happy Pink Saturday!

  6. I love the dishes. Did not know Homer Laughlin made them in colors.

  7. We swear by Fiesta in our house! It's so strong! And almost impossible to chip! We have all bright RED right now.
    Thank you for showing us the pink! It's so pretty!
    Erica :)

  8. Fiesta ware is sooo HAPPY ! I love turquoise and yellow best.
    Happy Pink Saturday !

  9. Hi Nan! Oh, love the Fiesta Ware! Just makes me happy! I join you wishing Beverly a happy birthday.
    thank you for popping in to see me and I did go to your glitter house board on Pinterest. I believe we've pinned the same ones! :)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  10. Just gorgeous! Perfect for Pink Birthday celebration.

    PINK at my page, come and see. Have a great weekend.

  11. i love all your birthday kitties! happy pink saturday and have a joyous week! also, i vote for the darker turquoise color... xo

  12. Hi Nan,
    It has been ages, and I hope all is well. Glad I stopped by today, as I love Fiestaware. I always love a blue/yellow combinaton, as those are my all time favorite colors in general. As far as your turquoise door, the paler version suites my fancy...but they are both very lovely. Looking forward to seeing the final outcome!

  13. I love those colored cups and plates and the lovely combinations you can make.
    I would go for the brighter color in a garden, nice and bright

  14. I would love to have some Fiesa ware! And, they are just the happiest of dishes! No matter that it's mix and match. I was never so encouraged to mix and match as visiting BJ of Sweet Nothings. She's link #74 this week. As for the color of the door? Either sounds great - lighter for that simple touch or brighter for that bold statement. I do like the brighter one . . .

  15. Hi Nan, Wow, gorgeous new pink color for your dinner ware. I love the color combinations too. Those two colors on the door are both so pretty. I like the lighter color for a tropical feel and the darker for a frenchy feel. Either way you can't go wrong! Happy Pink Saturday…….

  16. Nan! Now you have inspired me with these fabulous Flamingo Pink dishes! I would ls love to own Fiesta. I can't wait to see your tropical spot and the color you choose for your door. See you soon! have a great weekend! E

  17. I have not been keeping up with the new colors of Fiesta at all, so glad you shared this pink one.
    I think the paler color would brighten up any door and make it cheerier no matter the season.

  18. Love that sweet little kitty card!!!! Thanks for the update on the firestaware, I did not know they came out with a new color! Have a great week, Laura

  19. Happy Pink Saturday, Nan. Thank you for the birthday wishes, and for making my day special.

    Love the pink and the yellow fiestaware. I've always wanted a few pieces, but I've never purchased any.

  20. This color was just released by the Homer Laughlin Company and I could not wait to get my hands on a place setting of my own.
