This plate started it all!

Years ago, I gave this “God Bless our Mortgaged Home” plate to friends as a housewarming gift. In addition to the folksy style, I loved how the plate raised the importance and serious stakes of owning a mortgage. Something that needed to be either blessed, commemorated or possibly memorialized in some way. It’s certainly jokey, but also it holds

new meaning to me as we try and hold on to our house.
