This isn’t the piece I had planned on listing today. When a new father living in Seattle contacted me yesterday to tell me how much he loved my maps and that he wanted a special piece for his new baby girl but could not find anything, I couldn’t resist creating this one.
In his email he explained that he grew up in New England and that he wanted to share his heritage with his daughter. He wanted things in their home to remind him of his childhood and to teach her about it as well. Once I finished the work and sent him a preview, his response was:
And that is what makes my job so rewarding. I can make people that happy just by doing things that come naturally to me. 🙂

As a native myself, I am surely happy to this today. As we say up here, Yaw awt wak is wicked awesome!
Thanks so much! I have spent a lot of time up in New England and all that I saw was really beautiful. 🙂
It is! I should have spelled art aht instead of awt. It is difficult to write the dialect. Speaking it is easier. Although if your accent is thick enough, you might need someone to translate for your you! A few years back my dad and brother were at that famous steak house in Tampa. During cocktail ordering time, my dad asked for a be-ah. The waiter had no clue what he meant! Thankfully, my brother intervened with the proper pronouncation!
My family is Southern. I have no accent except when I am with them….LOL So I often translate! ha ha
What a marvelous story Sharon – and what a joy that is! Love this!
Thank you Lianne!
