Shabby Chic Bicycle

Hello Lovelies!
I simply adore cute old bicycles decorated up with plants and what nots!
Imagine my delight when my mom left this bike with me!
I could not resist adding a touch of pink up front with a pretty clay pot.
I have thought about painting it...but I kinda like it in the original condition.
It still rides well and my kids have a habit of hopping on it (display and all)
and toodling down the street on it!
This pretty in pink pot with plants that survived my
"green thumb" is enough to bring a smile to my face.
I am oh so ready for spring!
Gardening, planting, sweeping, fluffing and painting!
Oh the joys and hope of a new season!

  1. Olivia, I made hubby come see. He picked up a bicycle for me at the junk yard to paint for the garden. I love yours.
    Now I have to paint it.

    Have a lovely PS weekend ~

  2. Big smiles! I have a couple of those old bikes myself. They are so fun out in the yard and in the flower beds.

  3. That is sweet! What a super bike!

  4. What a thoughtful gift and the way you are using it is neat.

  5. So pretty! Come link with me with my Color Connection meme.

    Broken Leg with a bit of pink. Have a great weekend.

  6. How sweet of your mom!! I love it and of course the pretty pink pot just makes it perfect!!

    Happy Pink Saturday!


  7. Love that bike! I am with you--have been working in the gardens ever day--we have had nice weather for several days. But now they are saying rain and wind for a week. It sucks! I hope none of my blossoms get blown off! Well, that is Oregon for you.

  8. I wouldn't change a thing! This is absolutely charming! I think you mom must just be the best!

    Happy Weekend!

  9. I love that bike! I want to find an old one like that. So sweet of your mom.
    Have a great weekend!


  10. Happy Pink Saturday
    I love the bike and yes, using them as planters is so charming.

  11. Hi Olvia,

    Seriously!!! You are killing me with that bike. I am on a quest for one and hopefully will get my hands on one I can paint Hot Pink for my front yard. What better way to accent my hot pink front door than a hot pink bicycle? Now where I will find one will be interesting. I'll have to make sure I check out Goodwill. I might even try to get a little girl's bike which would fit better in front of my small house.

    Thank you for inspiring me. HPS,


  12. me encanta!! es realmente encantadora!!!

  13. Hi Olivia,
    Your bike prettied up with the planter is adorable! They really do make a statement in the garden. Thanks for sharing and for stopping by. I appreciated your sweet comment about my topiaries. Happy Pinks and enjoy your weekend.


  14. I just found your blog through Tete-Beyond The Garden Gate so popped over here and signed up as your newest follower. I am smitten. LOVE your sweet blog! xo Diana

  15. Love, love, love your bike, Olivia
    I have an old bike my hubby found for me and I was going to paint it, too, but just left it as is....I am going to add some baskets to it with flowers and then I will post is 64 degrees today, so I think spring is just around the corner...the spring flowers think so too, as they are up about four inches.!

    Hope you are feeling well, today!


Hello Friend! Thank you so much for stopping by! I love to hear your thoughts! Hugs, Olivia
