A tisket, a tasket, and vintage bicycle baskets!

Flowers and lemon thyme planted in my new find...
vintage bicycle baskets.

I was thrilled beyond belief to find this set
of vintage bicycle baskets at the antique mall
where I have my booth.
It is a wonder I didn't do a little happy dance all
the way up to the counter and out the door!

I only paid $12 for this set...
not a thing wrong with them and I helped hubby
get them on my bike in no time at all.

Don't they look sweet? Just like they were made for
her...I also need a name for my bicycle. Any ideas?
She is a girl so keep that in mind okay? lol

Now I need a little help.
Does anyone know what kind of bush this is? It grew up on the north side of our garage
and we did not plant it. I love the white flowers,
but haven't a clue what it is.

and now last , but certainly not least...

A peek at my front porch last year is
in the latest edition of Porch Magazine
along with many other gorgeous porches.

I still can't believe that my humble little porch
was included in this issue. I think I am dreaming...

Enjoy your Monday ~

As for the bicycle??? WOO HOO!! I just love her....I think I would find a name that was a bit obscure around the time of her birth!!

Hello Sandi... ooh, how I love your vintage bicycle baskets! I want to get me one for my bike I ride now... so pretty! I LOVE your all~white bike... ok, for her name, how about "Anais"... one of my French great~grandmothers was named that (most of them were named Marie!),... it means "graceful" in French, and your beautiful bike certainly looks graceful with that pretty basket on it! (You pronounce it like an~eye) As for your shrub, I do believe it is a type of Viburnum, not sure, but that is what it looks like to me... congratulations on being featured in Porch magazine... going to order a copy right now! xoxo Julie Marie

Hi Sandi.
I have missed the best posts here while the the Farm Chick show. Your baskets are the perfect touch to your sweet bike. I think Betty is a cute name for a bicycle.
I am so happy that you have been included in Porch. Isn't that the best magazine. I just love it! I can't wait to see you there!

Congrats girlfriend!! I must get myself a copy! You know I loooove your bicycle and the baskets are to die about since it is in your garden a flower name, like Rose or Rosie!

The bicycle is wonderful!! Even if I had found the baskets I would never have guessed what they were. They do look good on "her"!

Your bike is sweet! My daughter and I suggest the name "Lily Belle" for your bike. Congrats on the magazine!

I have always loved your vintage bicyle, Sandy. I often come back to your blog just to look at your flowers. I found a French flower cart today, I am thinking if I can get it in my car, I might make it my early birthday gift from my Dad.
