A Bicycle Built For Pumpkins
I picked up an old bicycle at a favorite antique mall
for the bargain price of three pumpkins. . .
I brought her home to take a spin around my Potting Shed.
The person selling it, informed me she wasn’t road-ready. . .
That’s okay by me since she’s pumpkin and vine-ready!
Her tires are worn. . .
But plenty sturdy for bittersweet vine. . .
And while her spokes can’t handle road
racing, they can handle Indian Corn.
Her seat and petal, ideal prop a pumpkin. . .
And basket is sturdy for planting pumpkins and gourds.
Thank you for your visit, I’m joining:
I just LOVE your new bicycle built for pumpkins!!! Terrific job!! I wish I was your neighbor!! :)
Where do you come up with all your ideas! I look forward to every morning to see what you’ve done next! I envy all your talents but sure do appreciate you sharing them with your fans.
Aw. Isn’t she pretty? And she’s a Schwinn!
I love repurposed old bikes. You did an amazing job of dressing her up in autumns finest colors. I always look forward to you posts. Happy Fall!
You are a superb artist–every line, curve, color contrast is like the kiss of a painter’s brush. Your sense of composition, color, design–I haven’t seen better on the internet anywhere. Thank you for starting my day with such beauty–every single day.
Mary, the potting shed looks amazing! Love the Schwinn! She could be beach ready!
Your new/old bicycle adds the perfect addition to your potting shed, Mary. She looks glorious decked out in her autumn decor.
Nice decor for this time of year! You just come up with the greatest ideas!🎃🍂🍁
I just love your bicycle! It looks great with the pumpkins and I would have never thought to put Indian corn in the spokes. You are so talented! Thanks for sharing!
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! You’re just amazing. :)
Everything about your potting shed is a joy to behold! Thanks for spreading the joy!
Oh my! how Sweet is this? I Love your Bicycle Built For Pumpkins.
What a wonderful idea!
How adorable she is & looks like you’re going to have fun dressing her for each season! I’ve always wanted to do this too, but would hear a little voice in my head (husband’s) saying, “We’re supposed to be getting RID of things, not bring them home!”
I love this!!! You have made her beautiful, as always!!! It is another beautiful Fall morning here, after some storms last night. We are off to Longwood Gardens today!!!! You would just LOVE it. I will do a post on it too.
I love the shed, the bike and all the pictures, the wild bittersweet in NE Penna. doesn’t turn orange and pop open till we have a good frost/ freeze, you must have a different kind than PA. does. I look forward to seeing your Blog and it makes me wish I had a pretty shed to decorate.
You never cease to amaze me! You have such a knack for decorating! I love everything that you do.
Ka-BOOM! Another fine story…………………. I agree with Debbie, amazing knack girlfriend!
This is just lovely and the use of the pots, especially that olive bucket!! Love all your pumpkins and bittersweet. Great find and you used it to its fullest.
Is THERE NO END?!?!?!? I hope not!!!! Brilliant! franki
I,love old bikes! You sure gave it a great Fall outfit.
Love the idea of placing the great pumpkins, etc in the basket…I need to follow your lead and add pumpkins to my bicycle basket…love your Schwinn!!!….back from vacay, so will be catching up on your happenings!!
Wow, I just want to step into the pictures and stroll around the potting shed with a hot cup of pumpkin flavored coffee and, perhaps a slice of Easy Caramel Apple Bar! Your Site is TRULY INSPIRATIONAL! THANK YOU!
And that garden shed just keeps looking better and better! It has so much personality, and I love it. Wish we were next door neighbors so I could look at it all the time. Cannot wait to see it’s Christmas attire! Thanks so much for sharing. Have a lovely day.
You can come up with such fun ideas!
Mary, she’s a real beauty now that you have added your own magical touch! The potting shed is picture perfect and overflowing with autumn charm!
Only YOU would think of tucking Indian corn into the spokes of an old bike! So creative, Mary!
It looks like it has always belonged right beside your potting shed. Perfect!
You have such great ideas. Love that bittersweet vine…I’m going to look for some of that.
How cute! I love your new bicycle!! You have decorated it perfect for fall!
THE perfect addition to your potting shed fun Mary! Old bikes have so much personality, and this one looks right at home here, happily overflowing with pumpkins and vines! I have a feeling you are going to have much fun with your new toy! Love the Indian corn spokes!
Lovely. I have saved an old bicycle myself and am just waiting for an opportunity to use it. I am thinking a garden party, with the baskets all filled with flowers! You have inspired me to get more creative!
Perfect fallness, Mary! We are definitely having Fall weather and loving every minute!
Love the bike basket full of Autumn goodness. Especially love the bittersweet. Can’t find ANY around my area. It stays fall to me.
I have a perfectly good bicycle that is impossible to pump up Maine’s hilly terrain. Maybe I should pull it out and load it with pumpkins. The tires are already flat, so the load couldn’t do damage!
I can’t tell you how much I love this! Truly, truly cool!!!
So cute! Love seeing your creativity. The little pumpkins look too cute in the basket. Love all the different types of pumpkins that are out there these days and I see you have a nice variety of them!
What an inspired idea. I never would have thought of decorating an old bicycle but I am going to try to find one and copy yours. Thanks for the inspiration. I love the bittersweet vine. I wish we could grow it here in Texas. I saw it for the first time while visiting in Kentucky and I love bittersweet. Great post. Thanks.
You have such a gift for styling! Your old bike is sooooo beautiful in this setting!
I love the bicycle, how cute is that and I totally adore your shed. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me.
Love your new “old” bicycle and how you decorated it for the season. So cute!
So cute. Great fall decorations. Love the bike.
Love your pumpkin bicycle :) It’s so cute.
What a perfect way to decorate for Fall outside – it’s just beautiful !
Where do you get the bitter sweet vine. Do you grow it?
she’s adorable, just perfect for your Fall Potting Shed landscape!
Mary, I have a question. Is that a barrel behind the bike? It looks like maybe you put some branches on it and then a pumpkin??? I am looking for a way to kind of camoflauge our rain barrel so this might be the trick I need!
Hi Pinky, It’s a chimney pot! :)
