I've just received this lovely
note of thanks from
note of thanks from
There is a website HERE where, if you send message
of congratulations to Her Majesty on her
Diamond Jubilee to be celebrated in June,
you too can receive an official 'Thank You'
Britain is probably being inundated with commemorative items to celebrate the Queen's amazing 60 years on the throne. Much of it tacky as those things can be.............OR gorgeous such as the beautiful everyday, long wearing, handmade and decorated earthenware, made by a great Englishwoman whom we love in the kitchen, Emma Bridgewater.
Emma's creations go so well with scrubbed pine farm tables, Welsh dressers, old linens, traditional British foods, and let's not forget the never ending cups or mugs of tea being poured from those teapots warmed by their cozies.
'Black Toast' (above) is my favorite pattern and I have several pieces I use daily. The history of Emma's business is so interesting, go HERE to learn more. After swooning over all her beautiful patterns, be sure to read all about how she started and grew her amazing business.
I know a lot of 'tea lovin' gals' who would
love one of these teapots to go
with their cucumber sandwiches, Victoria
sponge cake and jam tarts at teatime!
Ever hear yourself saying, "I just don't need another mug"? Well I don't need one either, I'm already drinking out of two of Emma's lovelies.............but I wouldn't say "no" to this one to brighten up my morning coffee.
Many thanks to blogging friend Jackie in Surrey, England for giving me the heads up on the Royal website and the new pieces of Emma B's earthenware.
AND A REMINDER....................
