Presidents' Birthdays

On the February calendar we mark Presidents' Day, George Washington's birthday, and Abraham Lincoln's birthday.  Actually, four US presidents had February birthdays:  George Washington (first US president), February 22, 1732; William Henry Harrison (9th US president), February 9, 1773; Abraham Lincoln (16th US president), February 12, 1809; and Ronald Reagan (40th US president), February 6, 1911. 

For a unique look at the only town named for and by Abraham Lincoln and how it has used its Lincoln heritage, get Professor D. Leigh Henson's book, "The Town Abraham Lincoln Warned: The Living Namesake Heritage of Lincoln, Illinois." 

 

Visit the author's website to read more about the book and view the accolades it has received.  http://findinglincolnillinois.com/townabewarned.html

PersonallyByPat has the book for sale on eBay, Bonanza, and Amazon.

Royal Cauldon Glastonbury Abbey Plate


From Royal Cauldon, England, Est. 1774, this is a beautiful vintage 9 3/4-inch plate, made in England in the Glastonbury Abbey pattern in brown on creamy ivory.  The plate is in excellent vintage condition with no cracks, chips, or crazing.  On the back side in the flat center area near the base rim there are what appear to be the numbers 4 8 2 impressed into the porcelain.  They are very hard to read.  This is the last plate I have from this Royal Cauldon collection.

Fall Table Centerpiece
 

Mid-September feels like the right time to put a new fall centerpiece on the dining room table.  We are finally into cooler weather here, but Halloween is still a month and a half away.   Too soon for a jack o' lantern on the table!  A garland of leaves in turning colors, some imitation fruits and vegetables, a lovely vintage English brown transferware bowl, some cute bird votive candles in pinecone candle holders, and a golden leafy table runner will do nicely!
