    BRM Hearts of Hope

    April 4th, 2011

    On March 31, we were happy to be in attendance of the Bridgeport Rescue Mission’s Hearts of Hope Women’s Benefit.  For months, we had been preparing hand-painted square plates that would be the centerpieces of each table, as well as gifts for people in attendance.  You can see some of them on Facebook; each one of the nearly 200 that we prepared for them is unique!

    At the Benefit: the square plates were the centerpieces

    The event benefits the Mission’s long-term recovery program and emergency shelter for women in Fairfield County. An opportunity to give will be presented during the program.

    Maternity Leave

    Not only do I want to take this opportunity, as the writer of this blog, to explain its lack of recent posts, but also to show other fun ways of using your Jean Elton dinnerware!

    Lois & Bill, new grandparents

    Over a week ago now, I gave birth to my first child (and in the process, made the founders and managers of Jean Elton grandparents)!  And as other parents of newborns can attest, I have been kept very busy as I get used to my new schedule and responsibilities.  But don’t think that means no more posts!  We will soon be continuing to provide behind-the-scenes pictures and current events at Jean Elton on this blog as usual.

    And in that vein, let me show you how we’ve incorporated Jean Elton into our nursery!  And maybe give you a couple ideas when you are decorating your next room.

    New Project

    September 8th, 2010

    We are very excited to be working on a couple projects for Bridgeport Rescue Mission this month!

    Bridgeport Rescue Mission demonstrates the love of God to hungry, homeless and addicted people throughout Fairfield County, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We fight poverty from the inside out by providing a place of hope and dignity through a yearlong educational program, biblical counseling and case management.
