It’s baaaaaaaaack! Thanks to Barb from Grits and Glamour for once again hosting What’s on Your Wall Wednesday. Head on over to see what other bloggers have hanging on their walls.
I’ve been dying to show y’all my blue and white commemorative plates that I’ve collected over the years. The plates, most of which I bought on eBay, hang in one of my guest bedrooms (when you’re an empty nester, every bedroom except the master is a guest bedroom). All of my blue and white plates have an Arkansas theme.
This one with the Razorback border is one of my favorites. For those of you who are not familiar with Arkansas, you have to understand that the Hogs are basically the team that the whole state supports.
This plate commemorates the 100th anniversary of the founding of the First Presbyterian Church in Camden, Arkansas. I found it hiding in a drawer at my mother’s house, and since she already had one hanging on a wall, I decided to adopt this one.
The back of the plate notes that at the time this plate was produced, plans were underway for a new building. I am not sure exactly when the new building was constructed, but I do recall sitting with my friends on the back pew of this old building when I was in high school in the ’60’s. We called ourselves “The Back Row Gang.” When the new building was finally built, my grandfather was the contractor.
Here is my entire collection of blue and white plates.
Thanks for visiting.
