The holidays are always a fun time to get your dishes out to "play." We'd like to capitilize on this and are seeking your photos for a New Year's Day post. Let your imagination run free with tablescapes, floral arrangements or other flights of Fiesta (or other HLC ware) fancy that say "Happy New Year!" to you.

Please e-mail your photos to blog@hlcca.org by Wednesday, December 30th. Be sure to include your name with the photo so that we can give you the credit that you will so richly deserve!

And the winner (?) is....

The consensus of our recent blog-visitors' poll regarding the next color to be retired is that CINNABAR is the most likely candidate (EVERGREEN was a close second). After White, Black, Cobalt (a perennial best-seller) and Turquoise, Cinnabar is the next "oldest" color currently in production.
