My New Ride

Yes, I'm riding a tricycle!  A garage sale find worthy of some detailing. 
A custom license plate...PINK, of course!
An old fashioned horn.  It's LOUD, so it comes in handy to warn all in my path!
Pink fuzzy dice hanging from my rear view mirror.
White ruffled basket liner I made from a linen blend fabric.
 My favorite part of the makeover, so it deserves 2 photos!
Front ruffled basket liner I made from Rachel Ashwell Rosalie fabric.
Cute cat lock.  It comes with 2 keys that are PINK!
DONE!  (Should have raked leaves before my photo shoot.)  Trader Joe's here I come!

If you share my love for 3 wheelers, I'd love to hear from you!

Oh my gosh! Another trike lover! I also have a vintage trike my late Husband, Gary, bought me for Christmas from an elderly man having a yard sale. He said he locked up the tires on his truck when he spotted it! I remember him bragging before Christmas about how he had found me the PERFECT present. He knew I wasn't very good at riding a bike and I had mentioned how I'd love an old style trike. Well, there is was Christmas morning! It is blue and has both baskets as well. My Husband took it to the bike shop for reproduction tires and a new bell and he also added a new basket that was wicker. He used to strap our youngest daughter's car seat to the rear basket and ride her around with our 5 year old daughter riding her bike along side. That is one of my favorite pictures of him with them that I cherish dearly. They are now 6 and 9 years old. Oh my, now I'm getting sentimental and weepy, sorry! ;). Thank you for your post and recalling sweet memories.
I may just get my trike out and make some basket liners. What a sweet touch!
Blessings to you!

The rake leaves gives it a more shabby feel (in a good way) and it's more real.

Wow! Your new ride looks super awesome! And it looked better when you put decorations on it. =) I actually love all vehicles, from bicycles to cars, from minivans to trucks - EVERYTHING!
