The Bike

This poor old bike has stood proud in my yard for many years.  Its been several different colors and the color for 2012 is lime green.  My time for decorating this holiday season is limited so I decided to keep it simple and just move the bike to the front yard, add a flood light, a mailbox and call it good.

UPDATE...It SNOWED this morning and the bike looks so much better and festive. 





The signage on the mailbox was done on my Cricut


I put a flameless candle in the basket of the bike, it has a time and comes on early in the evening. 
I have to admit that everything sure would look more festive with a little snow but for right now there isn't any in the forecast.

What a beautiful display. I LOVE the retro look and the color you chose is simply fabulous. Your picture jumped out at me a CCC Christmas party so I just had to take a look. I wish I had a bike like that too, but if I look hard enough, I might have my daughter's tricycle. If I do find it, I might do the same thing with it. Thanks for sharing!
