TIME FOR A SPOT OF TEA....

I am a great fan of EMMA BRIDGEWATER pottery ( I know my soul sister Dee is too) I collect it, I have loads of it, some displayed in my kitchen, and boxes of it wrapped up in bubble wrap in my garage :)
So, today I thought it would be nice for some of the vinyl crew to use it.....
First up, we have Sophie ( a delightful Gotz...yes, Gotz.. you read that correctly who used to live with Kendal) I adore this girl so it seemed only right that she should get her picture taken with the one gallon (20 cup) teapot...it is huge - nearly the height of a toddler!!
Then we have toddler Mischief with the 4 cup size and lastly Quinn with the tiny one cup pot ...well, he is only little!





Finally, the mugs... Quinn is standing in the two pint mug, then there is the one pint mug, the half pint and the tiny mug and this is only the tip of the Emma Bridgewater pottery iceberg :)

  1. Is toddler Mischief re-rooted or wearing a wig?

    1. Hello Doll Mum! Nice to see you ! Mischief is actually an Elke who was re rooted by Alison, she also re rooted another Elke for me called Mayhem who is now sporting a blonde side part Bob. I personally don't like dolls in wigs so don't own any :)

  3. I don't believe it! I missed viewing this new post yesterday but luckily I'm here this morning So what a fantastic start to my day as I've always loved SS's blogposts.
    You're looking wonderful Sophie in your new Denim dress and so pleased to see that you're still being allowed to let your fringe hang wild and free just as you like it.

    I also noticed that you still have your original Sasha Brood bar shoes on. (I've always loved that style of shoe on my Sasha girls the very best as they remind me of the Start-rite shoes that all the girls in our family always wore.)

    Pleased to see that you are still being kept in touch with Stoke-on-Trent's Pottery Industry and a special 'Hello' from us here to your two friends, toddler Mischief and baby Quinn, there with you today.

    (PS. You look as though you are enjoying life down there with Fritz, Ross, Sally and your new family but remember that if things change and any of you need rescuing that your step-sister, Chon lives quite close by!)

    1. Your brood members that I have adopted are doing fine and are well loved :) I was in your neck of the woods on Saturday in nearby Burton on Trent...I drove Christian there as he was picking up a car he'd bought ...an Audi TT (sigh!) Some of the buildings were absolutely lovely but after driving for 3.5 hours I didn't really get any time to explore as I had a 3.5 hour drive back and the dogs to walk when I got home!

  4. When I started reading this I expected to find little flailing legs sticking out of teapots, but everyone is perfectly behaved - at the moment.

  6. Ok, I have definitely heard of Emma Bridgewater and her fantastic pottery but I don't own a single piece! I can see that I will have to rectify this because I love this dotted pattern very much. Thank you for getting the pieces out and sharing with us though I did wonder who or what was going to take a tumble...

    Sophie, Mischief and baby Quinn look very nice at home and well behaved! 😊 xxx

  8. Well, Connor just commented on your previous post and we missed this one. I' m so off-line these days - blame grand-parenthood!

    I love EB pottery too, but don't have any since the 'great dropping' of a tea chest filled with cherished pieces when we moved here. Somehow, in the ensuing 16 years, Sasha adoptions seem to have got in the way of replacing it. But Dee hs clearly been training you in Gotz appreciation so she will no doubt re-educate me re my pottery needs.

    No worries Steve - Ronny is a master at teaching Sashas to behave particularly badly! She provides us all with much fun via her posts. We sit at home smug in the knowledge that our own Sashas and Gregors are so much easier to have living with us than hers might be. But beware, she often follows up by adopting out her Sasha kids to wreck the peace and quiet of our own homes and they can be difficult to retrain......

    My little Gotz-Trendon looked to be such a sweet, innocent little lad. She left him shivvering nude in her garden to gain sympathy and all the while the two of them were plotting mayhem when he arrived here. I was so BLIND!
