When Alan and Cath visited the other week, Cath noticed that I had a bit of a soft spot for Hornsea pottery.

Spotting my one jar in the 'Tapestry' design, which I was using at the time to hold utensils, she asked whether I would like another couple of pieces to match it. I was delighted to say yes as this is currently my favourite design (although I love the very dated seventies brown and orange ones too).

At the HNBOC AGM last Saturday she handed me a box of pots, but it wasn't until I got home and unwrapped them that I realised that there were two mugs as well as a jam pot with its original spoon. I hadn't even know they'd made mugs, and these are now my favourite ones to use every day. My big jar is now used for holding teabags, and the jam pot has become my sugar bowl, whilst my Bronte design tea, coffee and sugar jars now hold different varieties of herbal teabag.

Thank you Cath and Alan!


  1. our mugs got broken years ago but we still have a salt and pepper cruet set to match somewhere in a cupboard.skpt

  2. You are very welcome Sarah, I am always happy to see things go to good owners. What's more, you gave us a very attractive plate a couple of years back. Now that I know that you like Tapestry, I'll keep an eye out.
