    Hi all,

    This is just a little post to express my excitement about finally ordering my harp. This is truely like christmas to me, I have been saving for a very long time. To anyone out there who thinks owning your own harp one day may never happen- I am proof it can. Little by little with a lot of focus it can 🙂 Woohoo

    Hi Deb,

    that sounds fantastic so you worked with him to make the harp you dreamed of and it’s done?

    Well it’s not complete yet, It’s well on it’s way though. I’m just so excited about the fact of my dream harp coming to life. The bottom string is a low G so that should give me plenty of space for playing a variety of things. Thanks for your replies Deb, It’s so nice to share enthusiasm with people who understand just how exciting this is. Know one quite gets it like fellow harping enthusiasts I’ve found.

    I have a Thom Elf 26 harp from Andrew Thom. Its a small little thing — but I have played it many times in front of people and their reaction is the same — they are amazed by the sound the little harp makes. I am also a big fan of his unique designs –not to mention the cool colors.

    I would have more Thom harps — but live in Florida and costs alot to get one over here.

    You will be very happy with your Thom Harp.

    Oh, you’re ‘expecting’!

    You know Lisa, If you found a couple of other people wanting Thom harps in your area he can combine the shipping and it would be cheaper as you would split the costs. Just a possibility.
    Hey Leslie, “expecting” I love that expression hehe 🙂 Well I guess I am indeed. It’s funny you mention you like the Olwen model and the Stirling because they are my favorite designs too! and to me they seemed dragon-like as well!
    I have ordered a Stirling model. I didn’t discuss a time of completion, I gathered it will be finished when it’s finished and I’ve already waited so long for her it really doesn’t matter.

    By the way Leslie, Did your Laurel Leaf arrive yet? or are you still waiting? I remember that post a little while back. You know exactly how I feel then about “expecting”. So give me the update on your baby 🙂

    Hahahaha! You’re hillarious Leslie 🙂 I love it! Hang in there sweetie, not long now at all. My harp maker called me yesterday and she is almost ready to be painted. You can choose any colour you like. Mine will be a silvery/purple colour. I have no idea what the finished harp will look like but I can’t wait to find out. Will you name your harp when it arrives? Do most people name their harps? I think I will, I’ve already been calling her a she so I guess I will 🙂

    Here’s hoping your harp arrives just about when I’m typing this.

    Carm, I’m posting this a bit late as I’ve already made a posting regarding the ‘delivery’ of my baby.

    Oooh, I believe I saw another harp on the site that had the silvery/purple finish and it looked so cool and sleek.
