Toast, Marmalade and Tea






If you've visited Twisty Lane for tea,
you know I have a thing for Emma Bridgewater.
There is a wonderful store in my village called British Isles.
I laughingly say I visit their store once a month whether I need to or not.
Not true -- I haven't been there in the last three months.
However, the last time I was there I added to my Emma collection.


Tea


I first saw the mug and decided I had to have it. 
Mug of Tea on the outside and English Breakfast on the inside.


Mug of Tea

Then I saw the Tea container.
Earl Grey and Pekoe on top. 
The bottom of the mug and container is marked 2012:
Toast and Marmalade Emma Bridgewater.

I'm off to have a cup of tea and a piece of toast with marmalade. 

I'm joining some tea parties today:

Wishing you well much joy and a lovely cup of tea!

Hi Snap,
What a perfect mug for a big cup of tea. I also enjoy toast and marmalade! I would love to visit the tea shop where you bought your collections. Thank you for visiting me and have a wonderful week!

Those are really neat pieces, Snap. Great photography too!

I had my marmalade (as always) on an English muffin. I prefer Smuckers Spreadable Fruit marmalade; Target is the only store in our city that carries it. boo, hiss I love the photos of your cats. Teddy looks like my Jax, and I have a Siamese named Ting Ting. She is the entertainer of the house.

I LOVE Emma! Always visit when in the UK. My grandmother's...also English from the same area of Englan...was Emma Bridgewater....and her maiden name was Rice...although potter Emma married a Rice! So when I found out about her on a trip home to the UK in the 1980s I was hooked! Thanks for sharing your fab Emmas with Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

I don't blame you for checking the shop for some favourite things every now and then. Tea in that large mug with toast and marmalade sounds pretty comforting to me.

That's a nice mug, solid and with an attractive design. I just made myself a little pot of mint tea; guess I'd better go pick a cup or mug.

I love marmalade but didn't have any on my toast this morning. Had to have apricot jam instead. I will have to make sure I get some next grocery day. Love the mug and that canister is pretty cute too. Thank you for sharing and coming to tea, Snap. It's always lovely to have you.

Blessings,
Sandi

I love them! I wish we had an Emma Bridgewater shop here. I look at the online shop but the shipping is prohibitive.

Oh what fun. I love to see others' collections and what they like to sip from! These are so unique.

I love that container. Earl Grey is my favorite tea. I think it smells like flowers on a warm summer day. I must go and get some tea right now... :-)

Preciosa tu taza de té. Qué suerte que tienes esas tiendas cerca para comprar. En Argentina todo es muy costoso. No se puede.
Muchos besos
