Smithsonian Catalog

Speaking of catalogs, did you see the Smithsonian Catalog that has been out for the past month or so? The folks at The Smithsonian have been working hard and it shows. I don't remember a Smithsonian catalog being so well organized and beautiful, loaded with such great treasures! We really loved the section on art glass and the Gel Bracelets on the back cover are really terrific.

Then....there seems to be a few pieces of china from a certain President Lincoln fellow. VERY nice. And, the book shown just to the right of our Lincoln china is the Barry Landau book "The President's Table" which we have talked about in this column before. It's a great (and fun) read and if you haven't seen this book....why not go to and order one now.

Might be a good time to pick up a Lincoln dessert plate - or twelve, as well!
