Ok ok I know it's summer...but around here the temperature was cool for 2 whole days while it rained and rained and it triggered my need for soup.  This one has shrimp so I say it's a summer soup!  Plus I needed to introduce you to our His and Hers Soup Mugs and official soup weather IS just around the corner.  We have several pairs of soup mugs online with one mug slightly smaller than the other.  We would never presume to tell you which of you can use the larger bowl...no judgement here...but they do make an adorable pair.  Check them out!

It's finally feeling like summer here as the temperatures are rising to the mid-80s as the sun is shining brightly in the sky.  With all the summer feels, Brandon has discovered the color of summer and it's TEAL!   Now paired with our beachy blue, it's a summer color combo that can't be beat!  Doesn't it just make you want to head out to your nearest body of water, hop on a boat and leave your cares on the land??  Douglas Lake, here I come!  You can find several products in this new color scheme online.  Happy Summering!

Our newest product is this delightful berry bowl, for washing those fresh summer berries.  The little holes at the bottom of the base allow for the water to flow through to wash each berry thoroughly.  You can find a nice selection of these on our online store, AlewinePottery.net. 

A favorite breakfast at our house is Strawberry Shortcake.  The kids always request it for special occasions.  If you would like to make this yourself, you can find the Bisquick Shortcake recipe below.  Cut about a pint of strawberries into bite-size pieces and pour a half a cup of sugar over them.  Refrigerate overnight before you make your biscuits in the morning.  This gives the strawberries that delicious, sweet syrup to soak into the biscuits.  Don't forget to top it off with Cool Whip...it's the best part!

Bisquick Shortcake Biscuits Recipe

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 10 minutes

  • 2 1/3 cups Bisquick baking mix

1 Heat oven to 425°F.

2 Make the dough: Whisk together the baking mix and sugar in a mixing bowl. Stir in the milk and melted butter just until a soft dough comes together. Don't over-mix!

After months of testing shapes and colors, we are proud to present our new dinnerware collection!  Classic White, Black, Ansel, and Serendipity.  The absolute best part about this collection is the mix and match ability.  The creamy white and intense black with hints of denim blue are pure magic together!  

My personal favorite is Ansel...affectionally named after the brilliant photographer, Ansel Adams and his striking black and white landscape photography.  The crossover of our white and black glazes leaves this sliver of blue that I just adore, and makes it a perfect companion to our splatter design as well. 

We are thrilled to be able to offer our dinnerware to you online.

It is made to order, so please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery.
