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!

Thrift Store Make Over & Early Graniteware Coffee Pot




I found this early style wood candle holder at a thrift store and decided it needed updating so I gave it a coat of black paint and it looks much more primitive. It would great with a grungied taper in it!



You will find it in the Colonial Prim Needfuls section.
In the Smalls section you can find this wonderful early robin's egg blue granitware coffee pot- it is speckled with white although it did not show up in the photo.
To read more details for this coffee pot go to my website www.brandyannescandlesandprims.com

Black was the perfect choice for the candlestick make over! I can just picture it with an orange candle now, changing to a pretty brown for Thanksgiving, then with the red candle as shown for Christmas -- very versatile!
