I was delighted to find this plate on offer for a few pounds at a local antiques centre. It has (you will see by careful inspection) a charming depiction of a very Rococo garden landscape complete with fountain, Gothic exedra, bridge and Chinoiserie boat paddling across the lake. I looked at the style and the lettering on the back and thought it might actually be quite old. It is - it turns out that these plates were made between 1840 and 1850 by two Midlands firms called Adams and Allcock.
I realised I actually enjoyed reading my friends' blogs, and so have made my own, with an oblique nod to 4th-century theologian Theodore of Mopsuestia. Christian and Gothic matters will probably predominate. Names are changed to protect the furtive.
