Remember the little green bike that didn't show up well in all that greenery?
I had suggestions that I paint it...and so I did.  Joyce@ October Farm suggested nail polish!
Brilliant idea!  So out came my nail polish and I polished that little green bike.  I didn't have any red and just recently decided to experiment with nail polish with color.  I don't usually paint color on my nails..but.. and so turned it into a pretty in pink bike.  Name of the polish?  "Kiss Me On My Tulips" .... is that cute or what??
Now to fill that little basket with some moss and tiny flowers!
Done!  Thanks to  all of  you who said "PAINT IT!"   You ALL be SO smart!! :)  The Fairies are gonna LOVE this!
(I would be SHOCKED if I ever had a picture that was in focus!! )
LOVE that pink!  Did you know I just bought a pair of shoes that color?  

..and yes, those are my flannel pj's.  I dug them out of the closet to show you, plus it is nearly 10 PM.
We used to call this HOT pink.    (Yikes, do I need a pedicure!)

I found this pretty pink barrette on Etsy.  The artist's name is Laurie. 
She is at skybluedesigns2.  I get the loveliest barrette's from her. 
PH took a picture of it in my hair so you can see.  It's kind of blurry, but you get the idea.  He is so helpful.  Kept complaining because his hands were shakey... awwww...he did good!
(I hope that isn't a yellowish color I see in my hair???)
So...have I inspired you to go pink for Spring? And I didn't even show you my litte pink T with silver buttons on the shoulders..or..are they gold.  Can't remember.
...and if I get up and go in that bedroom I won't be back. 
Falling asleep here zzzzzzzzzz.
Love'n hugs,
I am joining Marty for her Inspire Me Tuesday party!
Yep...the hostess with the mostess!  That's our Marty! 


  1. That is the cutest little bike ever! I would have never never never thought of using nail polish!!! That is brilliant and it turned out great!

  2. Dear Mona, what a great idea to use nail polish. The perfect pink. I know the fairies will love it.
    Your hair is ao pretty. Mine just goes pepper and salt, so I have to use what comes out of a bottle.
    Now to perfectly round off the pink day. Paint those pretty toe nails.
    Hugs Kay

  3. Oh I LOVE the pink bike:) Sooooo pretty with those tiny flowers in the basket! GREAT job Mona! I just finished painting my nails pink... called "Crazy for chic"! Your barrette is beautiful! Have a blessed day dear friend, BIG HUGS!

  4. I knew you would get around to paint the wee bike eventually. It looks brilliant and now show us a photo with it back in the garden. I do like your new barrette - it is quite lovely and the hot pink sandals are indeed HOT :) ha,ha I am laughing, because I have pink flannel pj's on right now that would look really KOOL with your sandals. Have a wonderful day and hello to Capn Salty thare :)

  5. I love your posts. You have a wonderful talent for writing.

    I love the part about PH (he does need his own identity,) "hands shaking" just brought tears to my eyes. It brought back such loving and wonderful memories of my parents.

    I guess with Mother's Day fast approaching I am in a very delicate state of mind.

    Big hugs,
    Ann-Marie-Jane-Zorma (giggle) I know you are giggling, I can hear you.
