Collecting, cleaning, displaying, researching, and appreciating TRIVETS and related go-withs!

My Blog & Updates

As of May 15, 2020 there are 121 blog posts.

My blog Trivetology is a shared archive of items from my personal collections. I hope you’ll find the images and information both interesting and useful. Although many of these trivets have appeared in my two books, I’ve added additional information, photos and insights gained since the time of publication. You’ll also find blog posts describing new acquisitions to my ever-evolving collection.

● I usually post twice a month, on the 1st and the 15th.

● Followers of my blog are notified by email of each new post.

● Click “Older Posts” several times from the main page to fully populate the entire catalog of blog entries.

● Most images can be enlarged to better appreciate the detail. Click on any image.

Occasionally I’ll tweak a blog post in the first few days after publication, so be sure to review the prior post once again when the next one is published.

Due to the prevalence of spam, I no longer maintain an ongoing Comments section at the bottom of each blog post or allow comments on images.

However, I always appreciate any comments, additional information, questions or suggestions you might have. I’ll occasionally add a reader’s information to a blog post in the form of a Comment or Update.

Finally, I’m always planning future blog posts. If there’s a topic you’d like discussed, please Contact Me.
