Anyone that knows me is well aware of my addiction to Emma Bridgewater. So, seeing as we were (almost) passing recently, it would have been rude not to pay a visit to the factory.

Tea Room

When we got there it was absolutely rammed because it was half term. A great start to our child free night away – a place full of kids! We decided to attempt to find somewhere to sit and have a treat in the cafe and, after a bit of searching, we managed to find a seat tucked away at the back near the loos!

I decided on a latte and brownie and Big chose a (very strong) coffee and scone. Everything comes out in gorgeous, mismatched Emma Bridgewater pottery. Big’s scone (is it s-gone or s-cone?!) was really tasty but annoyingly my brownie was so dry! Like, sand in the mouth, spitting out crumbs dry! I love brownies but all can be forgiven when surrounded by all the pretties!

 

Factory Shop

After our cafe stop we had a walk through to the shop. I was like a kid in a sweet shop! So much beauty that I could add to my collection. I could have spent a fortune, if we had money to spend, but managed to restrain myself. I say I did, Big helped reign me in a little! There are two shops at the factory. The gift shop and factory store. I chose some bits for myself from Big and Little for Christmas, and also managed to find a special set to buy Little too.

Having spent up we decided (Big decided) that it was time to leave before I saw anything else! This was the latest of a few visits and I love it at the factory, although Big doesn’t enjoy it as much as I do!

What is your obsession? Does your other half appreciate it as much as you do? 

Little Big Love

One of life’s greatest pleasures is drinking a nice, hot cup of tea. Any time of the day, a cuppa can help you relax and unwind. My dad loves to drink it piping hot by slurping it straight from the mug, much to my hubbies distain, but that is another story!

I’m not sure where my obsession with Emma Bridgewater came from but it has grown over the past year. After posting my TK Maxx mini haul this week and mentioning my love for EB, I thought I would share my collection. I know it is a little different from some of my other posts but it is another bit of my world to share. Also The Duchess of Cambridge visited the factory this week so it has the royal seal of approval 🙂

I buy most of my EB from the outlet section of the website as it is a little cheaper and although they are slight seconds they are near perfect and each has a little bit of its own character. TK Maxx stock them sometimes but not often enough for my liking!

I have a range of mugs, cups and a rather lovely wedding plate.

My animal collection. The badger mug was for my hubby who has a random badger love stemming from uni days listening to weird and random YouTube vids like these!

The Mr and Mrs set came from the Emma Bridgewater factory in Stoke that we went to on the way back from our spa mini moon in October. Loved the factory and how much was on offer so I had to be careful not to spend too much!

I also have a set of Christmas mugs and a lovely set of mini mug candles.

Although my hubby isn’t too keen, my EB collection will continue to grow and is love to get sets of plates, bowls, etc… in the future. But that is for when we settle and become grown ups!

Do you have any collections you love (other than beauty products!)? Does anyone else have a love for EB? Leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts 😊
