Dining with Lapis

I took lapis for its first spin around the dining table using Southern Living's Zucchini Mushroom Linguine.

The recipe and the color were wonderful together.

We're nearly done with the first round of roses for 2013. The bushes are so strong and healthy this year. Fingers crossed that we've defeated the winter moths that plagued them last year.

I think the Fiesta bud vases will be getting a workout this summer!

Hello Lapis!

It's very nice to meet you. Now that we've been formally introduced, I can understand all of the confusing photos that have been posted for this new Fiesta color. The camera has a hard time reading this lovely medium blue shade.

The lapis individual pasta bowl is sitting on a sapphire plate. The mini pitchers are (left to right) cobalt, periwinkle and peacock. Now let's add a vintage Riviera creamer.

Can you see the difference between sapphire and lapis in the afternoon sun? It's as if a little bit of peacock glaze has been blended into the sapphire formula.

Lapis looks great inside, too.

I'm going to enjoy adding this new hue to the tabletop!
