Our Version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears

From the country...

Every Christmas there is always a gift under the tree intended to make me cry (I think Amy prides herself on such a gift giving skill...). There isn't a Christmas morning that I can remember where upon opening a sentimental gift, I haven't had a little weep. This year it was these amazing pottery porridge bowls adorned with our names. The bowls were hand made by Rosie from Sunshine Pottery.

The bowls remind me of the story, Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

In our story though, there is 5 bears. Daddy bear's porridge is a huge steaming bowl with everything under the sun in it (you name it- fruit, seeds, nuts, sticks, stones etc). Mama bear's bowl is uneaten (because she would prefer an egg to stewed down gruel...). Young bear Nate would have a medium sized, warm bowl with finely minced fruit in it (as to not affect his rather sensitive gag reflex...). Little Lucas Bear's bowl is cold and half eaten with a plate over it (for when he has time to finish) and Baby Millie Bear's bowl is empty while she grunts away wanting more.

Which one would Goldilocks prefer?


  1. What a great post. It's true though, I really do try to make you cry. Every single year.

    So glad you like the bowls, Rosey really is amazing. They're incredibly beautiful.

    Good pics.


  2. Rosie is so talented! What a great gift.
