You shouldn't have!

I was sitting at my wheel this morning when the postman came and had a huge package in his hand that looked very much like a painting. I was wondering if Gerry might have ordered some large prints or something. So I cleaned up my hands and came up to the house to see what it was. The return address was from Alaska! Cindy Shake, you crazy woman!!!! You shouldn't have! But I am so glad you did. Cindy, metal artist extraordinaire made me this wonderful sign to go on my studio. I love it love it love it love it love it!!!!!!!!!!!! It is absolutely perfect. I am speechless, and overwhelmed with gratitude for your thoughtfulness.
There is so much detail to look at, I sort of want to put it inside so I can look at it all the time. Right now I have it on the path that leads down to my studio, on a metal pole, but I think it will have to replace the pottery shard sign I made and I will put that one on the path. I didn't feel like ladders and hammers much today, but later, when I have time, it will find a permanent location.
If anyone out there needs a great sign for their studio, I would highly suggest giving Cindy a commission to make you one. It is just fabulous!
Sorry this is a terrible photo, everything is gray today, but you get the idea.
Cindy also sent me a Spring raven banner to replace the holiday one, but Wesley sort of claimed it for her room. All of the colors are the colors in Wesley's room and it would look good there. I like the one I already have, but maybe Wes and I will share the Spring one! It's so cheerful. I may use it for my tent with all the sales I have coming up.
I just can't tell you how much this means to me. There are members of my own family that have barely acknowledged that I have been doing this, and yet my blogger friends and potter friends here have been so supportive and cheered me on and I really truly appreciate all of your kindness. I hope that I can pass on some of this generosity to all of you in some way!!!! Thanks so much everyone, especially YOU CINDY!!! XOXOXO
