I was wandering through Kohl’s the other day and noticed this little bike planter, and it was half off! It was love at first sight.
So I bought it, after lugging it through the store (it wouldn’t fit in their small cart), put it in the back seat of my car and came home. I did notice that I could hear it rattling alot, and when I got home and took it out of the car, I understood why … it kind of fell apart.
Sooo, when Hubby came home from golfing I presented him with the cute little bike I’d purchased … in pieces. But I had faith in him that he could “make it better”. And, he did.
Its summer home will be on the deck, but I couldn’t resist enjoying it in the entryway for a couple days first. I thought we deserved to enjoy it “up close” for a little while, after the time and energy we had both invested in it. I had gone to the Amish garden store where the owner helped me pick out these pretty red flowers to go in its baskets. And, it’s no surprise that I had to make three trips to Marshall’s to get pots that fit and looked good in its baskets. But, when Hubby planted the flowers in its pots, it looked even better than I had hoped. I love it and thoroughly enjoyed having it in the house for a while.
The final result is that I love this little bike, that now lives on the deck, even though it’s never going to take us anywhere and isn’t even going to save us one dollar on gas. It’ll just have to earn its keep on its “looks”.
