My Favorite Blogs

I want to begin a small profile of blogs that I love and admire, because in the world of blogging, it's always nice do a share to share.   It's imperative for me to keep up with my favorite bloggers to see what they are doing so that I too can be inspired by them.  The idea of observing how another person writes, photographs and composes what they demonstrate or review on their blogs is fascinating to me.  I love good content.  I love a well-composed photograph.  I admire well-written posts and, most of all, I love to be inspired. 

When I have some down time after I've taken care
of things around the house, I get on the computer
here in the "office" and check to see what
my favorite bloggers are doing.  Yes, it's nice to
hear people tell me that they get inspired by this or that
through my blog, but to be perfectly frank, I also 
enjoy getting inspired by creative individuals.

Once a month, I plan to profile one blog and tell you a little bit about who the blogger is and what they blog about.  I may even do a little Q&A to see what they have to say.  It will be nice to do this, because in years past I have been fortunate enough to have been featured on certain blogs.  It's time to pay that forward.  I'm actually excited about this and hope that you are too, because there is always so much to learn from my blogging colleagues.  I'm sure they agree when I say that a little bit of sharing and kindness goes a very long way.

A snapshot of how I compose a blog post shows you a pinboard
of my photography or of some scans from other sources that I plan to use
on any given day I write a post.  
I was looking over my photo library the other day, and I have 
personally taken close to 40,000 photos 
in the last 4 years that I've been blogging!  

I'm not going to be following any type of alphabetical order 
for these Favorite Blog introductions, so I will choose based 
on what I see at the moment.  I promise to keep the posts light, 
short and thoroughly interesting.


All of us need a little bit of inspiration in our lives to help us along the way. Now it is time to show you the individuals who inspire me and why they inspire me.  I hope you stay tuned!

Antique Salt Cellars

There was a time when salt cellars played an important role on the dining table for the host or hostess.  As a result of it being such an expensive commodity several hundred years ago, salt was seen as a luxury and it was the well to do that made salt cellars quite fashionable & a status symbol for the home.  A single salt cellar usually sat at the head of the table and was passed around throughout the meal.  The closer one sat to the salt cellar, the more important one was deemed by the head of the household.  Smaller cellars that were more accessible and with an open top became a part of Victorian table settings.  Fast forward to the 20th century when salt was no longer a luxury and when anti caking agents were added to make salt free-flowing, and one begins to see salt cellars fall out of fashion.  Luckily for the collector and for those of us who like to set a table with Good Things , this can prove to be a boon. Salt cellars for the table come in silver, porcelain, cut glass

How to Paint a Chair

If you have ever felt the need to spruce up a set of chairs or give them a new look, why not try a little bit of paint?  Our tastes in decor and color will probably alter throughout our lives, and at some point, we may find ourselves wanting to change the look of our furniture without having to spend a lot of money.  That's where a few handy tips, some tools from the hardware store, and good-quality paint come in handy.   I know I'm not alone in paying visits to local antique shops, antique fairs and flea markets, and falling in love with pieces of furniture that would be perfect if they were just a different color.  You don't have to walk away from a good purchase simply because it's the wrong color.   My dear friend, Jeffrey, is forever enhancing his home with collectibles from flea markets and tag sales.  However, certain items aren't always up to Jeffrey's tastes when he brings them home.  He is the type of person who won't hesitate to chang

Collecting Jadeite

With its origins dating back to the 1930s, jadeite glassware began its mass production through the McKee Glass Co. in Pennsylvania. Their introduction of the Skokie green & Jade kitchenware lines ushered in our fascination with this jade color.  Glassmakers catered jadeite to the American public as an inexpensive alternative to earthenware soon after the Depression, both for the home and for its use in restaurants.  The Jeanette Glass Company and Anchor Hocking introduced their own patterns and styles, which for many collectors, produced some of the most sought after pieces.  Companies marketed this beautiful glass under the monikers of jadite , jadeite , jade glass , jad-ite , jade-ite , so however you want to spell it, let it draw you in for a closer look.  If you want a thorough history of the origins of jadeite, collectors’ pricing, patterns & shapes (don’t forget the reproductions in 2000), I highly suggest picking up the book by Joe Keller & David Ross called, Jadei
