I'm voting B, but I'd like it with no borders. And I actually liked the circle - it looked like the sun was rising or setting behind the vane. Maybe that's just me? Love the type in B, but I kinda liked the bigger banner from A. Sorry to be difficult!

A or C. Both the AND and & work but I am leaning towards the AND because it works the curve the best.

I have FOUR options for this design - see C,D below. Do you like the linen, white or rustic wood background? How about the ampersand vs. AND? Any feedback would be helpful! thanks in advance!

C. and I like the ampersand. Or if you use the linen make it more subtle.

It's awesome. But I think I'm slightly leaning towards C. I really love the texture in A & D though. Humph.

I like the one with the white boarder and white circle...E I think. The yellow is looking a little green on my screen... what if it was more copper or bronze in colour. You may have to adjust the background slightly. Just a thought.

I think I like E with the sun shape in white. Just reminds me of a crisp morning. I like the ampersand tho.

I really like this one Carol! I love the weathervane! I like B for the edging and the ampersand but would really like to see the circle back behind the cockeral. Perhaps just nudge up the letters of L-O-V-E so that they all sit on top of the bars, but that is nitpicking :)

Love that weather vane! I think I would maybe use an ampersand the same size as the names, instead of the smaller "and" because when I see that smaller "and," I wish it were centered, but it can't be because the names will not often be the same size. I think the full-size ampersand will keep it looking balanced. Good luck!
