I wanted to share a blog that I love. I discovered Mowielicious back in 2009, when I was on my road trip. I thought it was interesting that we’d both started blogging about the same time. However, unlike my blog which has never had more than a handful of readers (I mostly feel like I’m posting for myself), Mowie has grown his blog into a thriving business. It’s been great to watch the blog go from comments from all his friends to a portfolio of a professional food photographer and stylist. And as good as his pictures are, his styling talents are even more amazing.
I stumbled upon the Emma Bridgewater store in Marylebone when I was in London and immediately loved their fun and whimsical dinnerware. It just makes me smile and feel playful and childlike. I prefer the earthenware dinnerware, but their patterns also come in plastic for picnics and they sell towels and bedding. You can even buy the fabric by the meter, if you want to make a tablecloth or placemats. Genius. You can also personalize mugs and pet bowls.
I really like the Polka Dot and Sampler lines, which are their two most extensive lines, though there’s always the Union Jack line for all the British mania that has been happening this year. The Pink Hearts and Sampler would be fun for Valentine’s day.
They do ship to the US, though you’d need to place a somewhat substantial order to make the cost of shipping worthwhile. When I talked to the woman at the store about shipping the pottery to the States, she said breakage wasn’t much of a problem.
