  1. Happy Anniversary to Candy and TLRT! Yes, today we're celebrating the blog, but I'm also thinking of all of the dish fun that Candy has given us over the years, starting with Fiestafanatic. I've learned so much and made so many friends thanks to my fabulous dish mentor!

    All best wishes for many more years of Dish Divahood, my friend!

  2. Candy,
    I am a what I believe is a "lurker" but primarily a dish and seasonal accessory lover and through the years have bumped into and truly enjoyed your wonderful websites and beautiful photography. I recently learned about "tablescaping" through "MediumGreenCollectible" and have been awed and inspired by this community. I came this morning for a quick look and ended up hitting several of the top 25 spots that I had missed. I also appreciate all of the things you have shared that make me a more educated collector and just a dish and pottery fan. Thank you, congratulations and best wishes for many more happy years with family, friends and dishes!

  3. Have loved your blog since the first day I found it thru Susan's TT. Happy anniversary and thanks for giving us all the opportunity to win!!

  4. Happy anniversary to you! Thanks so much for the beauty, creativity and fun you've shared with us this past year. I'm enjoying my fiesta even more since I started following your blog. Keep on creating!

  5. Happy Anniversary!
