WHAT??!!! I was going through the 'recent with pics' pages and stumbled upon a flag with Dutch. That draw my attention.

Then it hit me... It was made by Beck.. And now I see what you wrote.. Aww! Beck you are the best! Thanks a million!  Kiss

For all those wondering, it says: Friendship
A good friend is better than silver or gold.

We do have a saying in Dutch that is nearly the same: "a good friend is worth gold"
See?! Almost the same saying! And I love camping with our tent and being outside.

Thank you Beck! You are awesome! It hits me right in the feels (I hope I translated that right, in Dutch: "it hits my in my heart")

Oh Wendie! I am so happy you like it! I just made it the other night to brush up on my Prayer Flag skills! And I have it in an envelope to take to the post this weekend and thought it was just the perfect picture to use in the Gallery! So now you know it's coming but I am happy you like it! I "googled" Dutch quotes on friendship and that came up a lot! So I translated it into Dutch to use on your flag! I'm so so happy you found the surprise!!

I like to pretend that I can read/understand Dutch because I can read/understand German, so I figured out some of it.

Lovely flag, CMB.

Well our languages are alike, so it is possible.

I'm the first to post! Whoo hoo! A gorgeous street art-inspired flag by Abbeeroad:



A detail shot of the hole/sky bursting through....



I have to tell you all that the sky is stuffed so it's a little puffy and it's such a fun detail.

And a shot of the back, in case some of you swappers wonder how it should be finished....



Thanks so much - I love the song "Imagine" and I love that you painted the bricks and the sky fabric - it's so charming and authentic. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
