House Crazy Sarah, being the purveyor of all things old and funky, loves, loves, LOVES the elegant lines of vintage bicycles.
She adores how people decorate antique bicycles with flowers and signs and pretty things.
The adorned bicycles make for gorgeous yard art at both homes and businesses.
Have a look-see at some of these timeless beauties…
House Crazy Sarah doesn’t actually like to ride bicycles…. (she took a nasty wipe-out in her teens and has been bike-shy ever since). She prefers to be a bi-ped. But she admires the aesthetics of the bicycle designs of yesteryear…
But don’t go thinking that vintage bicycle art is only for outside the home. Antique bicycles make for some intriguing interior decor as well.
How about a clock?
A bathroom vanity???
There is no end to the creativity one can dream up with these lovely old time machines.
I think that white bike on the street corner might be a memorial for a cyclist who was killed (white-painted bikes usually are, but I’m not so sure about the flowers). Other than that, these are some gorgeous bicycles.
I didn’t know that about white bikes, but yes, there is one down the road from me where a bicyclist was killed a few years back 🙁
We have a vocal cyclist community here, which is how I found out about the white bikes. It’s sad but also a good way to draw attention to the issue.
