The joy of new dishes...

New dishes are one of the great thrills in life, at least to me. I have been wanting a soup tureen for some time and when I saw this one from Longaberger, I knew I had found the right one, even if it was a bit pricey. I loved the matching mini-tureen bowls that you could purchase to go along with it, so I started with those. Then my parents came to visit from the opposite coast and my mom insisted I open my Christmas present early. Inside was the soup tureen I had been coveting, along with two more matching bowls. I had mentioned to her in passing that I wanted it and of course being a mom, she made a mental note. I am still over the moon about my new set, which happens to match a few other Longaberger pieces I have. We used it while they were here, so it's all broken in. What do you think?

  1. Eileen,

    Love that color. I was a Longaberger fan for many years but sold almost all of it when I moved south. Soup tureens are wonderful. I have one from Apilco now.


  2. I think that I LOVE Them! Green is not one of my favourite colours but that is just lovely.

    That's so funny. I've been wanting a soup tureen for a long time too!


  3. I have always been in love with soup tureens and soup bowls too. The big problem with them is they don't stack too deep. I even dragged home some lion head bowls from England, then 10 years later you could find them everywhere here at 1/5 the price!

    What a great mom! I always try to listen and take notes too and sometimes it is just too hard to wait. Glad she couldn't wait.

  5. Love these....beautiful color!
