Flower Cart Bicycle



I've had this flower cart bicycle  more than 15 years and I still love it today as much as I did the day I bought it. 

   I found it in Amarillo Texas at a big antique mall on 6th street..... which is the old Route 66.     There are lots of antique shops on 6th street and is a must to add to your bucket list!


The tabletop size of my flower cart is perfect and I've used it on almost every tabletop in the house....lol!


Today,  it's on a small table that sits in the wide spot in the hall that goes to the bedrooms,  utility room,  and baths.


The mirrors above the flower cart reflect the linen storage on the wall across from them.    The mirrors also reflect the mirrors and floral design in the guest bath.


From this angle,   the mirrors reflect the barn doors at the end of the hallway.
  

The  flower cart is pretty heavy since the bicycle is metal and the cart is wood.........


I filled the cart with spring pansies..............


I added some art to the vignette.............


I sat pots of greenery around my cart......


I  layered lacey crocheted pieces under the cart......


I added a lacey piece of crochet to the canopy too!


I have the original white canvas fabric on the canopy today,   but it can easily be changed out to a pretty print fabric.   


There are two skylights in the hallway......


I also have a big chandelier to add more light in the hallway.     


The other end of the hallway has empty window frames on the wall

I change out the prints in the frames for holidays and seasons   

So,  the theme in the hallway right now is spring flowers and bicycles.

I used a similar theme in the master bath......


I have a flower market theme in the master bedroom,   so this whole end of the house kind of ties in together! 


Thank you for stopping by......come back soon!

  1. What a unique and beautiful way to display flowers! Looks like I need to scope out antique stores for garden and home decor. I use to go antique shopping with my mom. My husband has gone with me when we are on vacation and passing through a new town. Thank you for sharing! #Thoughtfullthursday
