Welcome To Pilgrims and Pioneers!

After many years of researching my family geneaology I have been lucky enough to discover actual information about my relatives that lived in the Pilgrim Era and the Pioneer Era- while many people also have realtives from those eras- many do not know their names or where they lived- actually seeing the proof in print makes you much more aware of who they really were.
After discovering these relatives it of course made me curious to learn more about the eras that they lived in and what their lives were like as, the history I learned in grade school had long since been forgotten.
I decided to start this blog for others who are also interested in these eras.
Some of the information here will be actual facts about my realtives and some will be information about the eras in general that I have found on the web.
I hope you will enjoy traveling back in time with me!

Spongeware & Spatterware

I hope I am identifying these pieces correctly- The second photo shows a spongeware bowl my husband bought for me 15 years ago or so- it is one of my prized possessions and I keep it displayed with my Rowe salt glaze pottery.

It occurred to me a few days ago that I really should use it- I think it would look great filled with apples or pears.
The top photos shows a set of bowls that belonged to my mother- in -law. I have no idea what the age of these bowls is or where she got them but I do not use these either for fear of breaking them- I do think they are antiques. I should probably clean out the pie safe I store my candle supplies in and display these bowls on the shelves- but what to do with all those candle supplies it is holding!
