True Colors Thursday - Black and Tan

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaa, one of the special days that we wait for all week long! It's true colors Thursday and today's special color is black and tan together!
Playing this meme is great fun! Remember when you first started blogging and you saw your world through different eyes - blogging eyes - because you needed lots of new and exciting things to blog about! This is the way we feel about true colors Thursday! We look at colors differently
If you'd like to play just let our hostess Miss Blue know!
This chip-carved plate is black and tan!
This Emmert's vice is in dad's workshop. This vise just happens to be called a turtle face and believe it or not, it's a collectors item among cabinetmakers and furnituremakers! It looks kind of blue in the picture but trust us, it's black and the handle is tan!
This is dad's Indian Centennial Chief motorcycle! It's black and it has a tan seat!
Mom made this black and tan table runner a couple of years ago! Can you see the Airefaces?!
This is called intarsia and it was made by a lady named Barbara Curtiss! She is the head of our New England Airedale Rescue (NEAR).
Didn't she do a magnificent job!
This is an antique sampler that hangs in our dining room!
This is a spalted maple purse and it was made by a man named Shinichi Miyazaki! It doesn't hold much! A couple of credit cards and a few treats for us is about it!This hutch in the dollhouse is black and tan!
We know that everyone expected us to post a picture of ourselves because it's black and tan week! haha we fooled you! Well, we had to post just one, right?!
Next week's color is maroon!

So until next time...........................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

LOL - you had me fooled for one.

Lovely post, even though I'd have been happy, happy with just photo's of you two.

The Airedale head & bag are delightful and that dolls house is treasure trove of colours.

Love, pats & pets

Ciao M+M!

Oh, Mitchy! What a look that is on your adorabile face in the last photo of this post! La mia ragazza said -- out loud and everything, while I was trying to sleep! -- "Awwwwww!" (Sheesh, can't she see that I, Lucia, am still snoozing at this early hour of the morning!?!)

What a fantastico post, miei amici! There are so many bellissima black and tan things in your casa ... but of course, the two most beautiful are Maggie and Mitch! Mwahhh!

Tanti baci!

Good evening m & m
Humidity increases as it is hot, and it sweats also in Japan in daytime.
And, I start on a journey to a cool breeze and wonderful blog at time of night.
The flower is beauty that blooms all together in June. :D
The embezzled color with a black vise is very valuable, and I feel beauty as the tool.
The name of the purse of the maple is a Japanese name.
To our regret, it is a name that I do not know.
