My Little Pink Bicycle

You may remember when I showed you this little metal bicycle I found on a shopping trip. It was super cute with the same frame and basket as my own actual cruiser, but definitely not the right color. It was a quick fix though.... I just needed to paint it pink!

Before & After


I love the characteristics of the bike, like the white wall tires and how the chain and pedals are actually functional. My son loves playing with it. It has a kickstand to keep it from falling and the basket is the perfect size for holding a miniaturized Close To My Heart Idea Book!


I got around to cleaning off some of the shelves in my craft room and set up a little bicycle display.

Oh my! Your little bike turned out wonderful! That shade of pink is so fun! It looks so fun with your display! PS...my favorite card in the bunch is the top right. I adore the colorful banner with the pom-pom trim!
