And, yes, it came with the red bow 🙂

George arrives!
I love that it arrived in a box that says, “Caution – Extreme Excitement Bundled Inside*
* Contents may cause excessive hugging, squealing, jumping, and fist-pumping!”
(I also love the fact that this last sentence is written like it’s blowing in the wind because the machine was earned because Windblown won a big award at the IQA Houston show!)

    Congratulations! Excited for you. Bet you won’t sleep tonight! If you ever find the valance on the door missing, check my house first….even if it is 500 miles away. Love it!

      I was ever-so-slightly disappointed that he wasn’t white, but I’m sure I’ll get over it! Maybe the red bow was because of Christmas?

    Way to go Maria! I’ve noodled around with the idea of a George or HQ16 or something…. will love to read how you settle in together! And yes, the box is WONDERFUL… love a good sense of whimsy!
