I have been so busy in the yard this past week, doing "bull" work - digging, hauling, laying bricks - haven't had much time for other stuff (except reading)! But it's been happy, satisfying work.
I don't know if you remember when I brought home this shelf about two months ago. As you can see, I finally put it up. I put these tin tray/plates on it, but am not completely satisfied with the look.
I've shown the red tray before. The green one on the left is from Victorian times. It is very heavy and thicker for a tin plate and says Vienna Art Plates, 1905 on the back. The middle plate is a Daher plate (Holland) - nice red floral trim.
I picked up this book Friday night at the library sale - I can't put it down! It's about Whitey Bulger, the mobster, and his Mass. Senate President brother, Billy. I never knew any of the details of their story. It's amazing what goes on around you and you don't even know it - I lived in Boston for a few years during some of this time.
