Thank you, Betty,
I am trying to limit myself to only the planters. The cookie jars are a bit

There is something really comforting to me to have these old planters
around. It reminds me of a day and age when women had time to place a layer
of gravel in the bottom, plant some hens and chicks, and carefully water

I'm trying to put a round sticker with the date on the bottom of the
planters when I find out when it was made.
I wish our library had some reference books. We live in a small town,
though, and their collection of books about pottery seem to be pre 1960s.
