New decoration added

Otego Family Dental - Thursday, July 28, 2016
Dr. Knox added another decoration in the clinic. She ordered it from the artist last year during Labor Day weekend at a Renaissance Festival in Maryland.
Some day we hoped to add another window in the clinic and the piece will be moved there.
We picked it up Father's Day weekend when we went to Maryland to visit our daughter on her 30th birthday.

The artist is Nancy Barry at Barryglasseworks.com. You can find her on Facebook too.
