Painted Bike


It's been done umpteen times. 
 I still find a painted bike with a basket of flowers charming.
Sometimes, when motivated, Olive can use a spray paint can my lovelies.


I have had this bike for years. I paid $5 at a garage sale for it. 
The tricky part was finding the bike basket. 
However I have brilliant friends in high high places.

Baskets can be found online on Etsy and eBay but can be a tad pricey. 
Vintage bikes left unpainted are equally charming. 
One would disappear in our trees though.



Joe and I placed the bike behind our bird feeder. 
It can be seen from our kitchen window. 
It's all about our view.

Yes, I am going bold with color. 
Wait till you see my front door.



peace and joy
Olive

  6. Oh I like bright turquoise color of the bike .

  7. I like that you painted the bike. Now it looks like a nice outdoor decoration rather than just an old bike that has been left outside. LOL! Your basket with flowers makes it even cuter.

  10. It can be seen from your kitchen window? How about it can be seen from Kansas?
    Actually, I adore the color. The bolder, the better!

  11. I just gave my vintage looking bike to a friend. I wanted to save it and do what you did but with hopefully moving, there wouldn't be a space. I also wanted to save it to ride but afraid my balance isn't too good. Yours looks cute.

  12. These sorts of bikes are all around town. One shop has two; one with flowers and one on an ivy bank, being consumed. Another out of business shop put their's against a tree several years ago and it has gone just wild with all the ivy and weeds entangling it. I should post a picture!

  17. Oh- I LOVE yours, Olive. I have had my own for several years too- Two years ago it was white with pink polka-dots. The last two years it has been deep rosy pink. I love that basket. I guess I would have basket envy! xo Diana

  21. Painted bikes are so popular in outdoor decorating these days. Really love the color you used!! Blessings

  22. I love it! And that is one perfect mum (mine are always misshapen...bah humbug!!!). I would love to have an old bike in the yard...I have two old Schwinn's (?) at the lake but I could never leave them alone. And here...well, lets chain them to the porch!! Ha!

    I hope you get well. I know you know better than to have the surgery while you are under the weather. I've been remiss...have you shared the shoulder problem?

    Sending much love and positive thought in case all is on Monday.
