I decided to blog again

Today I went looking for my favorite chocolate cake recipe and couldn't find it and then recalled that I once posted it on my blog. Sure enough I searched back and found it and looked at a few other posts and it hit me that my blog was really my online diary of my daily activities. I realized then, that in one, five, ten years from now it will be fun to look back and see what I was doing, memories that I surely would have forgotton about. So, I'm back to blogging again.

I also visit favorite blogs and rarely comment, I feel funny for some reason about leaving anonymous posts, so now I can be an active blogger again.

One of my favorite activites is antiquing and my first return to the blogging world will be my two latest aquisitions.
The first is a very old pitcher and plate, I did some research and it's from the late 1800's. Only 20$ for the two!

I also found this pretty Oberwessel plate by E. Wood and Sons that is supposed to be highly collectible. I was attracted to the brown and yellow transferware rim and the romantic castle scene. I paid 8$ for it and I think that was a steal.
I missed my old blogger friends and it will be so nice to see who stops by to visit!

Your pitcher and plate are very unusual. Never seen any decorated quite like that. I'd say you did good. Glad to have you back on the blogger road.

You got a steal on both of the transferware things...but the yellow and brown two color is a piece that ANY serious collector would want to have. My blog is focused on English Transferware so I hope you'll check it out. Love your plate!
