from Rule Britannia to Liberte, Fraternite, Egalite......

I love being British and I'm very patriotic however, 
this Union flag screen I picked up really wasn't doing it for me...

so, after many coats of paint to remove the strong colours, 
I printed, traced and hand painted a French phrase on it instead...

and here's the result:

"life is a flower of which love is the honey"
(roughly translated in my rusty French!)

Do you like it? I think it would work in either a 
modern or a shabby, French style interior and it's 
now on sale at Afterglow of Olney
