Have you ever fallen in love with an inanimate object, something that was totally silly and didn't make sense? Well, that's what happened when I found this board at the salvage yard. It was a six foot long 1x12 board that someone had painted a beautiful pale green color. It's almost like a wood stain that penetrated the board and when the paint started flaking you could see the green stain underneath. I was determined to keep the board intact and do something wonderful with it.
Since I'm selling at the Little French Flea Market in Tarzana in two weeks, I thought it would be fun to paint the words The Little French Flea Market on it or some combination of those words, but they just wouldn't fit.
So after I painted the words The French I decided on finishing it as The French Connection. Then because I wanted to really make this more than just a board, I also found some used molding at the salvage yard and asked my husband to frame the sign to make it a little more professional looking. I think this is my favorite sign to date. I couldn't wait to finish it so I could get it into the shop. I really appreciate your visits so thanks for stopping by.
By the way, does anyone know what's happening with Google? I heard they're making some changes this summer.
