We are home now after our adventure of driving to the Chicago area. We returned to boxes piled in the dining room and a large gallery studio area all torn up. As we move through our day, things are collected up and saved or tossed. I am too much of a history buff to throw away old bottles.
I don't know the exact history of the plate but it was my Grandmother Brook's plate. She was known to have moved from one abandoned house to another with her husband and the three kids. I am curious as to when in that cycle of living that she obtained the plate. I am guessing that my mom got the piece when she married as it has been in her household all of her life. I have displayed it probably the last 15 years. My mother had given her prized antique water pitcher to my one bother, which sat next to the plate always. I think she felt this plated needed to be given to me since the pitcher was gone.
Well I need to shut this post down for the day. I am very tired from the past day's adventures but things will be done today. I am in the tear down mode of removing panelling from the ceiling of a 13" by 21" room. The ceiling is on a slant so it will be more work than a flat ceiling.
Thanks for stopping by today.
