Thank you so much to everyone that commented and pinned last week! I am happy to report that I've picked two winners via random.org, numbers 84 and 16. I just e-mailed you two- can't wait to mail out your winnings! And, for the first time ever, I chose those winners without having to painstakingly count by hand! Hooray for google giving me a little help with html code- and hooray for numbered comments! My life just improved a little!
A few of you asked about the scissors in the photos. Aren't they cool? They were a gift from a student of mine at Arrowmont a few summers ago- an artist who you'd probably love named Suzanne Andersen. When I received them they still had the price tag, which was old and tattered and illegible attached, and they were wicked sharp. I've since used them A LOT, and they aren't quite so sharp, but still my favorite pair. I'm hoping the knife sharpening truck comes to Gowanus and parks outside the studio (fat chance) so I can get them sharpened. Anyway, I found a similar pair on etsy. Here's another on e-bay. What about you, do you have a fancy pair of vintage scissors? Share a link or description in the (numbered!) comments.
