My new 'frenchy' bike..

Well sometimes it is a bit hard putting a title to a post, but I didn't know what else to call this..

I just had to show you what hubby bought me without me knowing. Now just let me tell you something he doesn't do this very often... he is not very romantic at all, but this time he really surprised me............... so I forgive him.
I actually saw this bike at 'recollections' when hubby and I went to pick some door handles for the extension. I immediately fell in love with this bike and kept saying I love that bike, I love that bike it, I have to get it. But ofcourse, I didn't, too many other expenses going on at the time. Well, not long after he turns up with this! Totally shocked me! I even started crying (mind you it doesn't take much to make me cry.. all Oprah has to do is give out cars and I start balling) So for now it's just sitting in my formal lounge ( sorry no pretty background here yet, this room is still waiting to be done up)
 I am still uhming and ahring where to put it... it was supposed to go on my front verandah but  since no one goes there I think it will be a waste. I am seriously contemplating leaving it in my lounge room! Would definitely be a talking point and would really add to my French theme.

I thought I'd post a pic of Lisa's wardrobe, her room is nearly done. I still have to cover that floor lamp and make-over an armchair, and memory board aswell. Hoping it will be all done by the end of next week!

So have a great week end everyone! take care, Maryann
