P. K. Silesia porcelain pieces are nice vintage collectibles. They were made in Silesia (formerly in Germany and now in Poland) from the 1880’s until World War II. But the company was first started in 1860 and it’s still producing ceramics today. Its vintage porcelain has a lot of antique charm.

The Irish countryside is full of ghost stories, including tales of ancient pagans, headless horsemen, innocent girls, murderous lords, and strange apparitions of unknown identity. Irish ghosts are caught between life and death, and haunt the scenes they frequented in life. You never know when they’re going to appear, but you do know they can be very scary.

Purpose, audience, and voice are often considered important elements of an academic paper. Sometimes students have trouble effectively using audience and voice. But the two are closely linked, and picking an appropriate audience will help you write with a professional voice. Thinking of the audience as real people will also help you write with a reasonable and respectful voice.

You can paint a plastic pot to look like a clay pot with acrylic paints. Acrylic paints are a lot of fun. They come in bright colors, mix really well, and are easy to clean up. To mix that terra-cotta color of a clay pot, you’ll need orange, red, brown, and beige paints. This is a project you can do if you have cheap plastic pots that you want to dress up.

Although Homer Laughlin ceramics aren’t rare, collectors still like them for their variety. The Homer Laughlin China Company started in 1874, and since then it's produced many different lines of dinnerware and other ceramics products.. Technological advances in the early 20th century allowed it to be successful, and it eventually expanded to seven plants. Collectors like the Art Deco look of the company's Fiesta ware, which Home Laughlin still produces.

Massachusetts has plenty of scary ghost stories, such as the spectral father who dislikes his daughter’s boyfriend, the angry merchant whose house was moved, and the Black Lady who haunts a fort near Boston. The long history of this New England state is very conducive to the appearance of frightening apparitions.

Collecting ceramics can be a very interesting hobby. First there's the fun of finding pieces that you like or that are unusual. Then there's the fun of researching the time and place of manufacture, based on the mark or back stamp. You can buy pieces very cheaply at thrift stores. It seems like, the more pieces I collect, the more I want to find.

Dublin is a fascinating city, including its many ghost stories. There are ghostly maids, dissipated nobles, phantom dogs and cats, and a haunted castle, not to mention tales of a very mischievious cellar-haunting specter. Don't go to the ruined hunting lodge just outside the city--you're sure to see some very scary floating black shapes!
