Well I am taking on a challenge,the very tile that started it all was the T08 Heart W Hand.......mine came to me in......well I stopped counting at 27 pieces.

I have taken on another........this one will top the first though.....as well I will let the pictures tell the story.......it was a wedding gift to the collector and their first tile........well I will make it new again......

Figure it wil be good entertainment,and frankly I am getting bored.......nearly finished withthe 4 that area here now,in fact they are gonna be done tonight,got another that has been done for a week,but owner is MIA on vacation I think.

There is a Bacgammon coming that is smoke damaged from a smoker doing such indoors,that one is gonna be a fun one for me........

But this one well ........it is gonna be for me........I love to challenge myself.......pictures area shocking,and yes that is all I have to work with,the rest of the tile were tossed and the owner did nothave the heart to throw out the large piece sent to me,I am glad they found me though......DOC.


Hey it's Cindy..................
Here are pictures. :greentongue:

Ha....for some of the new members....that was my broken Dido :cry: ....she fell off the fireplace mantel. It was a quick death...she didn't suffer (but I did! :bugeye2: ) I gave Dido to Brian to keep and to with it what he wanted...I bought a new one.
Brian, are you going to try to restore it or make a blank tile???

I posted my tragic story in the General forum...but the T08 is mine. *Sigh* When I told my story to the person I bought a replacement tile from (off Ebay), her first question was "Do you know Brian?" I had no idea who she was talking about! But...boy...I'm glad I do now!!!! When I read that this was the very tile that started it all for Brian, I thought it was fate..and well, here I am!

Thanks again Brian for all you do!

LOL didn't I ask if you know DOCTOR Brian? :D
I'm glad you joined the message board and decided to send it to Brian, I'm sure he can fix it for you and I was so touched by your story about this tile, so I hope you will receive this special tile, which will be even more special now with some extra love from Doctor Brian!
