Back by popular demand well maybe my popular demand. My fav bike that you see in the header of my blog was taken down from my front entry way during the holidays to allow for Christmas decor. Well after the flip of the rooms after Christmas I still did not have any room in the entry way for her. I felt so sad to see her hanging upside down in the rafters of the garage everytime I pulled in. So I thought to myself I need to find her a new place in the house. Well I did and I think she likes her new place.
It is a sunny day here in Chicago land and she reminds me of Spring and Summer to come! I fell in love with this bike the first time I laid eyes on her so I am really happy that she found a new place in my home after the flip.

    1. Tracie,

      I am a little leary of our Chicago weather as this is very unusual for us. I am waiting for the blizzard to come!!!!!! In the meantime I am enjoying our Spring weather during winter. Have a great rest of your week.

    1. Ha! thanks so much. I do love to repurpose chippy treasures like that. I not sure why but I love love that bike and it really did make me sad to see it hanging in the garage. It is right next to my french doors that lead to our deck and summer garden so I think when the summer months arrive I will love having it there. Have a great rest of your week.

  15. That would be a shame to leave her upside down hanging from the rafters. Just seeing it in your pictures makes my heart happy, so I can imagine how it brings a smile to you in person.
