The annual after-Christmas pottery trip!

How many times have I been to Stoke on Trent? Well 5, but who's counting? It is always a fun day and I really enjoy seeing what everyone else buys! I know Jeni will recognize these beautiful glasses from Waterford and I almost bought these "Limoncello" glasses for someone I love....but we are going to Italy in a few weeks!

My favorite is always the Emma Bridgewater stop. This time I saw some of the ladies in the factory actually hand painting polka-dots on some of the pottery. We were treated to "sweets and tea" while we shopped and one of our members won an adorable over sized red teapot....wouldn't you know, her name is "Cookie"!

The Emma Bridgewater is always my favorite!
Did you bring home anything new?

Great visuals--makes me wish I had gone. And do we get to see photos of your treasures???
