It's exactly the combo you'd think it would be, in Little Alchemy. Hee!

+Elizabeth Ives, do you have the standard-issue doctor? You need that...

Hello, all! I'm relatively new. I'm based in Abington, but spend a lot of time in NE Philly and some down towards Media. I've just set up a GroupMe account.

Can I get a hand identifying this bookplate, please? Those are three horse's heads couped on the left, and three arrowheads on the right.

Do I know anyone local going to the Tourney of the Daffodils this Saturday who might be willing to bring a lilac offshoot or two home for me from a friend?

Another ID challenge for the heralds! Of course I went straight to Talbot, but no one by that name seems to match this exactly -- anyone know who this belongs to?

I think we have a winner! Viscount Allen is extremely plausible. Thanks to all, and especially to +Jennifer Smith.

Bonjour mes amis!

On Wednesday, Feb. 24, starting at 7pm, I'll be hosting an open performers' circle for singers, storytellers, poets, etc. at Ye Olde Baronial Estate in Glenside, PA. All are welcome, and I'd particularly like to focus on folks interested in getting some practice time and feedback before K&Q Bardic next month. This is a great opportunity to try out your entry pieces on a smaller audience!

Please feel free to spread the word. I'd appreciate RSVPs if at all possible, so I know how many chairs we'll need! Keep in mind that we are a non-smoking but cat-owning household. Contact me off-list for the street address, or if you have any questions.

Your servant and that of the East,
Sabine de Kerbriant

Murder Ballads house concert at the Baronial Estate! You're warmly invited to come hear the amazing Murder Ballads, fresh off their appearance as Philcon Musical Guest of Honor, at our house in Glenside on Sunday Nov. 22, doors opening at 6:30.

Murder Ballads is the usually-acoustic duo of Catt Kingsgrave and Adam Fromm, two songwriters from Texas and Illinois respectively, who somehow converged in the American Northeast to join forces and influences. Murder Ballads’ sound is an eclectic blend of whatever strikes their fancy: sincere folk originals, bluesified treatments of Anglo-Celtic standards, reimaginings of favorites in whatever genres they have lying around, trips through cockeyed humor, and yes, the occasional actual murder ballad. More information about Murder Ballads can be found on their website: http://murder-ballads.com

Hey friends! +Paul Butler and I are performing at The Dovetail Artisans for Glenside's First Friday celebration this coming Friday, Sept. 4, from 6 to 8pm. We'll be playing some of our favorite medieval, Renaissance, and folk tunes on winds and strings, in a shop stuffed full of really marvelous handcrafted gifts and craft goods -- hope to see you there! (and yes, we'll be doing our best to forget that a certain Rondelay member is lounging by the sea, taking in gorgeous Greek vistas while we toil without her... )
The Dovetail Artisans is a Premier Gift Shop located in Glenside, PA, featuring American handcrafted gifts for every occasion

Folks were so helpful with my last armorial bookplate inquiry -- anyone want to take a crack at this one? It's in a collection of three Ben Jonson plays, printed in 1732. Thanks in advance for any and all assistance!

Thanks, +Jenn Crewell! I'll check into the Bulmer and Fayreweather genealogies. I agree that doesn't seem like much of a lead on ACJL, which is almost certainly going to be either a private collector's initials or marking a family-held collection; if it were an institutional bookplate, odds are good it would be much more immediately identifiable.
