Catch of the Day: Tangerine HOTS

Remember my great affection for the sea-themed dishes by the Hall China Company that we collectors call Hall of the Sea, or HOTS? A nice catch in tangerine arrived this week.

This box was the first shipment of dishes to arrive since Fuzz joined our family. Uncle Fizz used the occasion to conduct a lesson of Uncle Fizz's Kitten School entitled "Every Cat's Responsibility To Inspect All Packages."

I found it curious that these little beauties were shipped with only cardboard dividers for protection. The system worked just fine, as none were damaged.

Fuzz approved of the casserole as a kitten food container.

I approve of the casserole as a great fit on a Fiesta dinner plate.

Fizz claimed the box for Fuzz's next lesson: how to build a kitty condo.

Now a dozen fish casserole dishes is a lot for one tabletop. Half of the dishes are on their way to the home of my partner in crime for this haul, and I hope we'll be able to share a joint tablescape soon!

  1. Fizz and Fuzz are so cute. The dishes are fabulous. I'm glad they made it to you safely. I can't wait to see them on a tablescape.
