Happy Friday and Leslie Hindman

Happy Friday and weekend to you. I love these pieces from the upcoming Leslie Hindman auction of fine furniture and decorative arts. The Japanese tsuba are new to me, and I like them for the metal, the folk art, the geometry, and the femininity (which seems anomalous in a sword guard). I also love the Chinese tomb figure. To me she's saying, "Just try to mess with me." And the pitcher and vase are simply sweet to me.

Are those Lake Creek horses on your banner, or where did you find them? I miss fields of horses.

MCL and Laura, thank you! No, not Lake Creek, though we go to see them often. These are at 4 Eagle. We went to a friend's birthday there in August. While we were playing with the kids outside, they let the horses out of the corral. They seemed so happy to run to the field.

Ah! That's where we were married. Fond memories, of course!
