Sunday, May 22

Social Pottery

I've now been nicknamed the 'Queen of Brunch' by my house mates. 
Every weekend, without fail, as they are slowly waking up from their slumber, I'm already dressed & sat with a coffee in hand having a wonderful brunch. 
Last weekend wasn't an exception to this trend.

One too good to not put to the test!

My friend Francesca & I arrived with some pounding heads & rumbling stomachs in search of a remedy. The cafe itself is cosy & has a wonderfully rustic feel with the old, decorated tiles & wooden tables.

Both of us chose their smashed avocado on toast with roasted tomatoes, poached eggs & (of course), plenty of bacon!

It hit the spot perfectly!
Brunch couldn't be faulted, the atmosphere was bubbly for early on a Saturday morning & the staff delightful. Can't agree enough with TimeOut's decision!

With a belly full of bacon & smiles upon our faces, Francesca & I wandered off through Clapham Junction in search of even more coffee. 

Stopping off at Gails Bakery along the Northcote Road, we made a new best friend in little 'Pickles'

Eventually, after buckets of cafe, we kept & wandering & found our final destination.
What better way to spend a lazy Sunday than by painting pottery?
The Pottery Cafe is based in Battersea & Fulham & is supplied exclusively by Emma Bridgewater- a brand that I've been utterly in love with for years.

The staff diligently explain how to use the different paints & where everything is- you're then let loose to let you mind & creativity go wild.

Drawing on your design in pencil, you can then go about stamping & painting to your hearts content.

With two hours of hard graft, (painting rounded mugs is harder than it looks!), Francesca & I finished our designs.

Rather excitingly- I pick up my mug next week so I'll let you know how it finally looks!

All in all, a really chilled out & wonderful Sunday.

Has anyone else done anything fun this weekend? Or been to the Pottery Cafe before?
