THIS AND THAT---and it's mainly THAT and some finds!!

I love this painting. It's 20th c. Mexican--I don't know the artist. there might be a signature, but it's not important to me at this point. With the possible confirmation of an unworthy-for-office candidate, a candidate who has possibly committed felonies and who has misled (that's the most gentle word that I know) the Senate Judiciary Committee, looming during the tomorrow crucial hearings and with members of the Senate refusing to do their jobs, I long for a return to that point in time where life was less complicated, where the good guys stood together to do what was in the best interests of the country.  Yes, that is Adam in the Garden--note Eve has not arrived on the scene yet; Eve could not be made a scape goat nor be intimidated and bullied not to testify.

A time when women were honored

A time when man was not busy destroying the earth and then refusing to believe the reality.......

This is why I'm voting: 1. My vote does count. 2. My voice is heard. 3. I'm exhausted from bearing witness to a group of men (who have no qualms about intimidating a witness) push through their narrow agenda which has proven numerous times to be against the best interests of our country. Women and their bodies matter. Our health care matters. The middle class matters. Public schools matter. I could go on and on and on. Bottom line: WE ALL MATTER

OK--I'm Off the Podium...........
Our buying has been a bit serendipitous. For example the ribbon-back they are in the shop. Roberto hasn't come to spiff them up yet, but they still look pretty great (not a California look).

Sets of 8 are hard to find and this style is just beginning to come back into vogue.

G found these guys---how can you pass up great country French pieces--and they are a pair!! (some one will probably come in tomorrow and want only one!!!) Roberto will get them cleaned and waxed and they will be set to go........pairs are always great and very unusual.
And finally--haven't been buying at auction lately. Except for this great 20th c. oil is jar with an iron lizard applied for decoration. I need to bring in more  earthy (but highly decorative) pieces; so this jar is making me happy. And I can't resist animals, even lizards....

Tomorrow is another busy one.....I need itlllll Sales have been a little off.

Sending blessings for the week.
