It's Like Riding a Bike





Once you learn how to ride a bike, you never forget it. Nor, do you forget that wonderful feeling when you have found a treasure that you had been wanting , waiting and searching for ....for.ever! And the icing on the cake is that I got it at a FANTASTIC price!






This little treasure is in great condition. My son will be painting it for me (teal & white) and her new home will be by my front door with a basket planted with some flowers.

  2. Ahhh how sweet. I love vintage bikes. That's going to look so good when you get your basket and new paint job.

    So what kind of cat is Rocky? We have one that looks just like him. He took up at our house a while back and we sort of took him in. But we're not sure what kind he is. Someone told me he had persian in kim because his head is so small.

  6. Toni,

    Thanks for the sweet comment. I'm crazy like that--naming furniture. I suppose after a while the fumes go to your head. Have a lovely evening!
