Grace #26 - Creel

If I may say so myself, I have the coolest bicycle basket ever. We went for a ride today, twelve miles along a former train line now paved for non-motorized recreation - and no one, not nobody, had as nice a basket.

It was my idea, and my creel, but my clever husband fabricated the cunning aluminum support structure that attaches the creel to the bicycle.

The only thing missing today was a nice goat cheese and tomato sandwich. Next time, we'll bring lunch.

I cannot BEGIN to tell you how happy this made me

That is indeed a very nice basket. It would do a great job holding some sandwiches.

(I had to look up the word creel, by the way.)

I have an old Schwinn with a metal basket, which is extremely functional but not nearly as pretty!

oh, I miss going out biking! Love the bike...the basket reminds me of poor Toto stuck in there in the wizard of oz ;)

So cute, I just want a tiny dog to pop its head out of that hole in the top.

And, I'm going to need a goat cheese and tomato sandwich for lunch tomorrow.

You are right, that is one fabulous basket. So classy and stylish.

Kinda like me.

*snort*

It is lovely. I would say that the hole in the top is so that the bottle of wine you bring isn't rolling around in the bottom!

Kyla said...

It is a nice basket! I can't imagine riding 12 miles, though! I definitely need snacks as motivation. LOL.

awesome. wish i had one. we rode eight miles, also on sunday. great minds think alike.

Janet said...

I covet your bicycle basket. And your awesome (non-existant) sandwich.

It made me wonder where Toto is also. I love taking things intended for one use and converting them to another use.

Janet said...

That IS fantastic and the sandwich makes me hungry!

mayberry said...

Agreed -- it's fab!

I wonder if my father has officially stopped trout fishing and I can snag his? Of course, i won't be going anywhere until I pump up my two flat tires...

I have to say, that is totally cool. I asked for one for my birthday last year and my husband got taken for $50 for one not half as sweet.

julochka said...

I was all ready to fight, but then I actually saw it. Yes, your basket is truly da bomb. You would have definitely won an award at the bike contest on my block.

It's totally beautiful!
