Show and Tell Friday: Fiesta Ornaments

I'm joining everyone over at My Romantic Home for another edition of Show and Tell Friday.

If you are a regular here on The Little Round Table, you probably know that I collect Fiesta
dinnerware, both vintage and Post86.  Here is a part of my collection that you probably
haven't seen featured yet.  Ornaments, lots of them, but by no means a complete set of all of
the ornaments that have been produced since about 1997.  Some years I do decorate a
wrought iron tree with them, but a few years ago I put them on permanent display so I
could enjoy them all year long.

Thanks for stopping by!

  7. I never tire of seeing Fiesta ornaments. Got a question for you. On the third shelf from the bottom in the second photo: What is the story on the green ornament with the mug?

    They look gorgeous displayed this way. Dustless is good. :-)

  8. This looks fantastic. I keep a few of my Fiesta ornaments out all year long also. I have them hanging on a non-Christmas looking wire tree. On a similar note, I put my magnets in a shadow box that keep them dust free also. I can't tell you enough how much I enjoy I enjoy your blog.

  9. Thanks everyone, I really do like having them right at my elbow.....the cabinet hangs right next to my computer desk.

    Becky, it looks great from a distance....not so much up close. It was one of those experiments with vintage water-slip decals. My experience was that most of the vintage decals (at least the ones I have) are too far gone for a smooth clean bond.

    Thanks Monica, I am happy to provide enjoyment for you!

  10. Ah, thanks. I too have found the vintage decals very hard to use. They get crisp and crumbly. I have a plan though. I've scanned the old Fiesta decal sheet and have sized the individual decals so they will fit well on the ornaments. Also got some water-slide decal paper to use with photographic inkjet printers. Before I had to go to Vanderbilt last summer I had started experimenting. The first ones did not get enough of the spray-on clear coating, so they tended to run when doing the water-slide thing. Next attempt I will use more layers of the coating and not be impatient.

  11. Becky - That whole crackly paper thing should have been my first clue. I'll be removing the test mug and giving it another try perhaps as a winter project!
