Bracket Shaped Baby Announcement Sign

I made a baby announcement sign for a great woman who has a small store in the closest city to me. It's called "The FARM" and she sells my signs along with many other beautiful handmade items, mostly from local artisans.

Katie just gave birth to this beautiful baby boy in October, and I wanted to make her a sign as a gift.

Because the baby's name is a little short for the horizontal bracket sign, I added some swirly scrolls, also called flourishes, to each side.

Here is the sign without the flourishes:

and here is the sign with added flourishes:

Can you see the difference it makes? Being a designer is an important added part to being a woodworker and painter.

But really... forget the sign, isn't Foster just the cutest baby?

P.S. See here for another bracket shaped sign I made previously.
