Changes for the New Year

As you can tell, I made some changes to the blog's look. I really wanted columns on both sides with the posts down the middle. After experimenting with a bunch of free downloaded templates, I have settled on this one. I might change it again, but for now I am going to work with this one. Notice the Archive has moved to the left side. I also added a right side column with a photo to show off the new additions to my collection. Hope to keep this image changing for you all to see what I am buying - mainly UK stuff. I do sell billheads on ebay so if I find a particularly neat one I might also show it off too. I am also going back and attaching labels to my posts for easier searching. For example, if you like biscuit billheads, you can click on Biscuits and see all the posts with these kinds of billheads.

Starting next month I am going to be doing a post dubbed "Billhead of the Month." Since my favorite thing to do when I get new billheads is to research them to death, this is my way of being able to focus on one billhead a month to show off my research skills.

I have oodles of billhead classifications that I have not yet touched on: farm, shipping, railroads, art, Canada etc. I am constantly coming up with new classifications. I might try to focus on geography some this year too. Finally, I might revisit some themes where I have found new billhead examples.

Fun stuff ahead. Thanks for reading my blog and I hope you enjoy it as much as I love writing it.

Ice Billheads et al

Since I have been cooped up all day here in Wisconsin due to the snow and blizzard conditions, I thought it would be appropriate to show some billheads, one receipt and a bill of lading too - all having an ice theme. Notice several of the billheads show a graphic of an ice wagon. Enjoy!
