Crepes!

Crepes!

What do you do on a snow day after a long day of sledding? It’s a family crepe party! We’re still working on our plating… But the crepe will be wrapped and then really, how it tastes is the only thing that counts! Strawberries, bananas, nutella, and sour cream mixed with a little sugar on top of crepes hot off the pan. That’s good stuff. Looking for more crepe filling recipes!

Post-Thanksgiving Post

It’s been a while since we posted anything on our blog!

The old saying about the cobbler’s children having no shoes is how I would describe our dishes at home.  We basically had the most mismatched group of bowls and plates one can imagine.  Why?  Because we bring home the samples, the leftover items from broken sets and the discontinued pieces that have been sitting around for years.  When Bob and I got married, I wanted to register for china but apparently, that would have been akin to Mr. Toyota buying a Mini Cooper to tool around town.

So for Thanksgiving, we decided to bring home some actual pieces that were not discontinued or mismatched so that we can show them off!  We spend so much time figuring out which pieces we want to add to our product lines, imagining what would go well in them and how great they would look together.   But then, we don’t really get to appreciate them until we’ve discontinued them and taken some pieces home.

So here are some of our current products being utilized in real life….

Of course, we meant to take more pictures or our plates and bowls but it’s hard to keep a hungry bunch waiting while we try to line up the dishes and find the right lighting.  Luckily, there are a couple more holidays coming up where we stuff ourselves like there’s no tomorrow to show off some other pieces.

We hope you and yours had a wonderful holiday feast too.  Happy Belated Thanksgiving!
