My Broadway Debut

Thankfully for your ears, i don't mean the stretch from 42nd to 51st where it's the singing-with-music-lights-and-extravagant-costume-change-Broadway (trust me, you really don't want to hear me sing). The Broadway i'm referring to is where it intersects Houston St. and separates NoHo from SoHo. It just so happens that at this certain intersection, there is a certain store that my Dad was walking by the other day that has a certain set of plates displayed in their front window! He snapped this pic and sent it to me:
I kinda can't believe it. *Pinch, pinch, pinch* Nope, not working.
In all seriousness, this brought me to tears of incredible joy. When i set out to license my artwork, i'd try to create designs with a "dream company" in mind. It helped in narrowing down a style and sensibility and gave me something to strive for. I'd think, "if i could pick any store where i'd love to see my designs, which would it be?". Crate and Barrel was always the one i'd pick.
So this is really a dream come true.
But i still can't believe it.
I'm so grateful for my Mom and Dad who never flinched at supporting an endeavor to pursue dreams of any kind.
