Pink Saturday, Episode Three!

Hello and welcome to another PINK Saturday, hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound! Be sure to visit her and find out where you can find MORE pink!


Today I'm sharing my vintage PINK bike! Isn't it cute!? It was salvaged from the house they dozed down caddy-corner from my house. My Dad painted it up for me for my birthday this spring. If I remember right, the color I chose was Watermelon from Krylon. You can read about the dozed house in this post.

She doesn't stand up to well on her own. I need to find her a new kick stand.

I looked like a real goof in the photos of me riding the bike, so I won't be sharing those. I'll have to try to get some good shots some other day. For now I'll just pretend this is me, lol! I almost went with the apple green shade...


Those pics were taken on a dreary day, and before the house and porch were painted. Check out the difference!

The bike used to be a dark royal blue, & unfortunately I didn't think to take any before pictures. It is an old Western Flyer. If anyone can tell me the year, please do! I've been searching everywhere.


Have a great weekend everyone!

Boy! She shore is purty! : )

Your porch is great too. You have certainly done a lot to your home.
It looks great!
Are you doing the "Our Favorite Things" party that Cindy (My Romantic home) started? Just another great fun way to see a bunch of different blogs.
Have a great weekend!

I love your bike and would have loved to see pictures of you riding it. What? You think you always have to look like a supermodel? Have you seen some of the pics I've posted of myself? Downright scary!

Oh I love the pink bike! How cool! It would have been so much fun to see pics of you riding it. So is that what you have it for, for riding? Or are you using it as decoration?

Your bike is just to great for words. It reminds me of the beach cruisers I see at the coast.
Have I mentioned how much I love your porch? Well, if I haven't...I love your porch!

HI Nikki,
Your bike is so darling. I don't think I've ever seen that model before but did you try looking through the 50's. It looks 50ish to me.
I love period clothing and wish I could wear costumes everyday, but alas, people would think I was strange so I get away with what I can. I once took a History of Costume class in school and absolutely loved it!
You had asked about my hat...would you believe it's fabric hot glued to the outside of a grocery bag? I made some for a little girls tea party and everyone fell in love with them so I just keep making them :).
You live in an old Victorian...I am sooo jelous (how do you spell that word)?
I'll be back to visit soon.
:) Cori

Anne Fannie said...

Love, Ann

Margie said...

I adore your bike! I'm wanting one more and more! Your porch looks beautiful, also. That is one of our next projects we need to tackle, but somehow it keeps getting put off. (I think it's all the prep work that needs to be done before the painting!)
