NEW CATALOG and cookies....

HEY HEY HEY....I'M HOME....Gotta get rested up a bit and then...
P. H. O. T. O. S
of our Alaskan Cruise....

HAVE you heard of EMMA BRIDGEWATER?

Pottery....
dishes....
all kinds of the CUTEST things.
**

I had heard of her pottery but I've not had a catalog until now...
**


I had just taken the last batch of PECAN CHOCOLATE CHIP cookies out of the oven....

when I found her catalog in my mailbox...
*
Her company is in the UK....
but I understand a lot of stores here in the U.S. sell her line.
I haven't searched them out yet.
*
SOOO many cute things !
*
I am so into BLACK and WHITE and WRITING right now that
I picked out some of MY favorites from her catalog...
like the above adorable COFFEE MUG !
*

There's ALL COLORS in her line of dishes and pottery...
even POLKA DOTS...


I feel knee-deep into love when I saw this darling TEA POT...
*
Of course, like ALL GOOD THINGS...the items are a little pricey...
but, not bad compared to other lines such as
MACKENZIE-CHILDS...
CHRISTOPHER JAGMIN (...O HONEY)
to name only TWO.
*



WELL...!!!
"OLD BAG" ??
...I'm offended...
*
OOPS....it's a JUTE shopping bag for sale in the catalog......and it's ADORABLE....
I'm probably going to HAVE to get one of these !!
Isn't this a cute egg cup...
*
Now, to be honest...
I have never USED an egg cup for an EGG.
(I need to do that one day)
*
Many times I use them for cute CANDLE HOLDERS....
*


Now, I aim to have one of THESE !!
How cute is this !!
**
You can go to
emmabridgewater.co.uk
and see all the beautiful things she has to offer...
and you can request a free catalog.
**
**
OOO....the blue and white vintage SUGAR and BUTTER...
Mr. Sweet bought those for me at a flea market about 45 years ago..
they remain MY FAVORITE crocks.....I just love them.
They were bought as a pair but they don't match...
Close enough for me, tho....
Never have liked things TOO matchy !!

Welcome home, sweet BJ. I know you must have lots to show and tell about your latest adventure out on the blue seas.

I love your crocks, and they are especially sweet since they are from Mr. Sweets, and because they hold delicious cookies.

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

What a fun little at home getaway for you! And cookies too! This sounds like just the little break everyone needs in their day!
I am going to take your lead and do the same thing this afternoon, but mine will be a new decorating book and a biscottti!
Hugs,

Welcome back! Thanks for the info on the new catalogue. I will be checking that out for sure!

Your blue crocks are gorgeous, I'm with you-dosen't have to match to be perfect. The cookies look ymmmy. Happy Blue Monday.

SmilingSally said...

Welcome home, BJ. I know you enjoyed your anniversary trip. I love your blue and white crocks and love that your Sweetie bought them for you so long ago. Happy Blue Monday.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

BJ! Happy Anniversary!!! I'm so glad you had fun on your trip.

I love Emma Bridgewater. I got one of her bowls years ago in Scotland. It was a nursery rhyme bowl that said, "Pussycat, Pussycat where have you been? I've been up to London to visit the Queen!" And of course, it has a pussy cat and I think the queen's foot in the pic. It's in my Scottish cabinet. But yes, I love Emma!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Hello sweet BJ,

Welcome home! These cookies look yummy, and I love the crocks. Looking forward to seeing the pictures of your exciting trip!

Sarah said...

Welcome home! I'll be eager to hear all about the cruise and see the photos.
Enjoyed this post. I need to get on the mailing list for this catalog. With all that black and white, yes indeed!
Have to say the blue and white crocks would be favorites here as well.
Wonderful post, BJ. But now I think I need to go downstairs for a cup of coffee and a brownie. No chocolate chips cookies in the house. :-)
Have a great day. ~ Sarah

Nana's Joy said...

Decompress and all that jazzzzz... We'll be here.

An excellent idea, to turn off all your comments, while you were away. Excellent idea.

Welcome home hugs...

Kathleen said...

Welcome back, BJ! The pottery looks wonderful, but not as good as your cookies!
My sis from TX was here last week visiting and I told her all about you!

The Paint Splash said...

Oh BJ everything is so awesome, I will have to look up that company too! Of course the cookies were really calling shame you aren't close for a cup of tea. Debbie

Teena said...

The vintage sugar and butter jars are beautiful and make a wonderful pair, all the more so because they are not exactly the same! Happy Blue Monday <3

Anita@Theycallmejammi said...

Welcome back. Let me just say that I was shocked and amazed in the happiest of ways when I opened this post....I have been looking for the name of these breakfast plates with the writing...I saw them on someones blog a few weeks ago and they had picked some up at a yard sale and didn't have any info. I wanted to try and track them down so I could find out how to on my own set. And here you are just spouting the answer out...bless you BJ!! I'm off to check out the site and order a catalog now.

Bobbi said...

Hi, Yummmmy! Great pictures and mosaics! Hope you have a lovely new week!
Hugs...
Bobbi

Miss bj...
I prayed that your plane would'nt crash...your boat would'nt sink...
that you would have a wonderful time and terrific weather. So I need for you to stop with using the chocolate chip cookies for props...
you're killing me here.
Just kidding, kinda!!!!
glad you're home safe..
