A Major Award from Susan Branch



Once upon a time there was a new blog named  P O T A G E R.  The creator of this blog had a mother who long ago befriended a very talented person named Susan Branch.  P O T A G E R  thought that Susan Branch might enjoy her little blog AND her garden (since they both enjoyed mucking around in the dirt) and so she posted a link to her blog on Susan Branch's Facebook page.

To P O T A G E R ' S  surprise and delight, an unexpected package arrived one day with all sorts of goodies from the artist Susan Branch, and an even more delightful and generous hand-written (in Susan's inimitable lettering) note. (Nothing makes an impression quite like a hand-written note.)  In this charming way  P O T A G E R was notified about her very major award (much more useful and less provocative than the Leg Lamp from a Christmas Story major award that Darren McGavin received in the Christmas Story Movie) and the appreciation Susan Branch Studios had for this little blog.





Awe shucks.

I couldn't have done it without you, dear Reader.  

































And all my best to you too, Susan.  Thank you.

  2. CONGRATULATIONS on the Susan Branch award! Just found your blog as a result and can't wait to read it. I was born in OK City (long before you were born)and lived there 10 days before I was adopted. Have often thought about returning to see where I started out! I've just begun to blog about the treasures I find at thrift stores...it takes some getting used to.

  9. LOVE Susan Branch, and love your blog and garden! I had the pleasure of going to one of Susan's book signings years ago (the Girlfriends book!) and, honestly, it was one of the coolest things, ever! I follow her FB page and blog and just adore everything she does. Also a fan of Thomas Jefferson. Been to gorgeous Monticello! Lovely!
