Remember how I warned you in my last post that you may visit in the near future and see a picture of and old 1968 (OK, so it's not THAT old) motorcycle in much need of a little TLC? Well... this is that post.
Your motorcycle is finally on my blog Babe, so please don't take my pretty metal basket away.
Today I decided to clip some of my lavender crape myrtle blooms and bring them inside to put in my mason jars, so I thought what better time than now to do ... THE MOTORCYCLE POST.
When I'm not using my mason jars for flowers, I store them in the infamous motorcycle basket, which I keep in my living room. I got this lovely basket from (brace yourself ladies)...
THIS motorcycle! My husband, being the non-blogger that he is, took this fabulous picture before he brought the motorcycle home. This is the only picture he took that showed my lovely basket (do you think he thought it was ugly and was trying to keep it out of the picture?). You can just barely see a corner of the basket on the back of the motorcycle.
I asked him to clean a little bit of the rust off (not all... got to have some of that rusty goodness still left) before I brought it inside, so he sandblasted it a bit for me. If you were to do this yourself, you may want to put a clear coat sealer on it before bringing it inside to prevent the rust from getting on any carpets or other materials you may have it in contact with. Since I have it on the wood floor, I didn't worry about doing that.
I love the way the lavender color of the flowers and the aqua color of the jars look together.
