The annual trip to Stoke-On-Trent

Last spring we did not go to Burleigh and it is such a treat I have to share these pictures. Can't you just imagine a quaint English cottage kitchen filled with this delightful blue and white pottery?

Some ladies go on this all day bus trip looking for specific patterns or serving pieces at Spode, Waterford, Wedgewood, and Portmeirion but I was looking for good deals! I shipped back a set of "Holly and Ivy" (How could I not?) soup bowls for next Christmas Eve's gumbo and I lugged home, in my trolley, a few extras to compliment the new dining room. My suitcase is going to be heavy!

I was so busy shopping I forgot to take pictures....

They didn't 'call you out' for taking pictures of teapots?
Love the gumbo bowls!
