Do you think it's too girly?

My new bicycle basket...do you think it's too girly?


I used three different fabrics for the outside
and the inside lining is going to be trimmed in vintage lace.

Here's a close up of the lace. When my grandad died several years ago one of my aunts sent me a box filled with jewelry, old lace, and a Victorian mourning cape that was so beautiful, but I didn't know what to do with it so I donated it to a Victorian clothing museum. I'm still kicking myself in the derriere for that one.

It was made from beaded jet...dumb I know.

Here it is on the front of my bike.


And here's another shot of my bike...in the living room? Yes, that's where she is parked and that's where she stays...unless of course I'm riding her.

Now aren't you glad you stopped over :)?

I think that basket is perfect for that PINK bike! Not too girly at all for that PINK bike.

I love the bicycle basket. I applaud you for donating the mourning cloak to a museum - they will preserve it properly. You did the right thing, and you still have the other pieces to work with!
