How would you like to have this on your menu for today? I love designing and painting signs and this one was done for a bakery. The chalkboard part isn't chalkboard and the lettering isn't chalk. It's all paint. Thus the "faux" part. I'm pretty far away from France, too. So I guess that's "faux" too. What is it though about our notion of a perceived French flea market style that's so appealing? I don't know, I just know I like to surround myself with things that have a story or appear to have a story. Or maybe I can make up a story how I came across this in Paris and all the trouble and expense I had shipping it back home.
