Downton Abbey Earthenware Mixing Bowls

Posted on | February 6, 2012 | 21 Comments

Are those Mason Cash bowls I spy in the Downton Abbey kitchen? Mason Cash debuted its first collection of earthenware in Derbyshire, England, in 1800. Traditionally the bowls have a white interior with a light brown exterior glaze with a distinctive embossed pattern. The traditional bowls are making a bit of a comeback stateside. Dishwasher safe, affordable and available in a range of sizes from 1 1/2 cup to 9-quart. What’s not to love?

I purchased three in different sizes through amazon.com. The 6-quart style is large to make a big batch of biscuits. I’ve always had a problem with smaller bowls when I incorporated the buttermilk. Small pieces would fly out of the bowl making the process quite frustrating and messy. Finally a bowl that’s big enough! Below traditional mixing bowls and pudding pots from Mason Cash available through amazon.com and williams-sonoma.com.

New! Martha Stewart Kitchens

Posted on | September 9, 2010 | 9 Comments


I’ve been eagerly awaiting the launch of Martha Stewart’s new line of kitchen cabinets at Home Depot. I’m a huge fan of her personal style. The new line features cabinets inspired by each of Martha’s own kitchens. Her new Bedford kitchen is my favorite did you see it in the recent issue of Living? Click here to check out detailed shots—the organized drawers will wow you!

I’m about a year off from renovating my kitchen. I have to take down a wall first. But I can still dream, right? I imagine cabinets in a putty color or maybe just a creamy white? I’m not sure on anything really. I know I want an island so I can pull up chairs and a big beautiful wood farm style table on the other side. I’m hoping I have a fireplace behind a wall but that’s still left to be discovered. But all this is tentative of course and I’m still in the daydreaming phase…

Martha’s new cabinet collection is available through special order at Home Depot. Eleven different door styles are available as well as hardware and Corian countertop options. I have to go and check it out in person but I think it has serious potential! Above and below inspiration shots from the new collection.

p.s. I saw sample cabinet at Home Depot over the weekend. They seemed nice. Prices range from $2,500-$3,000 for 10 x 10. Not really what that includes but hopefully it gives you some idea.
