A Sign from Susie

Remember when I said I wanted to put a long, old-looking sign above the Reading Room?
Well, last week I drew a rough sketch of the sign I had in my head using Photoshop and sent it to my friend Susie Harris.
I envisioned a large sign on top, with the name of our favorite book store, “Page & Palette”, on it. (Click on the link to read about our inspiring experience there!) I pictured a second, smaller sign, suspended from little hooks on the botton edge of the bigger sign. Here is the rough sketch I sent Susie…

When I say that Susie is a signmaker extraordinaire, I mean it.
We received our handmade sign from her today and we LOVE it!
Here it is, hanging in its new home…

Her lettering is amazing…

She even used the exact kind of trim around the edge of the sign I told her I loved. Her attention to detail is second to none.

Every time we walk by our new (old) sign we’ll be reminded of that stormy night in Fairhope. It taught us a lot about following our dreams, and embracing our creativity.
Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us Susie! Now our memories of “Page & Palette” will also include the wonderful & talented you!
