The photo on the left was taken today, 2-24-16, and the photo on the right was exactly a year ago. At that time, I had only 600 glass and porcelain insulators. Now I have almost 2000, about 900 of which are from two collections I have purchased within the last year. All the rest were purchased, traded or found individually. What I enjoy most about my collection is only a few of them I have payed close to book value for, the rest were either found or traded, or bought from non-collectors. I am most thankful for all the fellow collectors that help me out with my collecting endeavors, and I hope to repay the favor.

Some of my favorite glass additions within the last year are my CD 110 baby spiral I got from a lady who called me on my wanted ad, a CD 160 with complete Holmes tree bracket, a 104 unembossed National, a 288 Mershon, a french ginger bread man, my 327 carnival, Emerald Green 267.5, among many others. I can also notice the quality of my camera lens has gone down...

I can't wait to see where I'm at a year from now!
