Upcycled and Made, and grown in MICH and a special meeting!!!

Check this out!! Sim made this for me from parts he has been getting this summer from places we have been thrifting and antiquing!!! He made this for me when we got home from vaca!! The bicycle wheel was separate, the handles, wheels, and seat also. He got the Vernor's crate on our vacation at a yard sale and the seat also. The Vernor's is a Flint, Mi company. I LOVE it!! I am going to just put some Faux Fall Flowers in it with this drought we are having I am not gonna chance real ones. Don't cha just love it!!!

Here is one of my biggest harvest from my Garden!! Our first two tomatoes!! I have been also harvesting my Parsley and eating alot of it. Here is what I made from the veges. Chicken legs with cut up veges in foil pockets. I had to use the stove instead of the grill cuz it started raining outside!! Happy dance for Rain!!! Oven did just fine!!! The only thing not from my garden was the yellow squash but was given to me. Kaitlin made garlic fries with the parsley. We had an awesome meal!! Cleaned house all day cuz the weather was amazing!! Kinda cool and just right to air out the house!! I feel so good getting something done!!! I am like everyone else looking forward to my favorite time of year Fall!!

And today was so awesome I got to meet Kaitlin's new boyfriend Chris!! He is so sweet and alittle shy but I really like him. He lives in Saginaw and they don't have a Red Robin there and he wanted to go to ours. Sim couldn't go cuz he was working. So I bought them lunch and enjoyed spending time with them. What a blessing!!
Hope everyone is getting rain too and enjoy alittle bit of relief from the heat!!
Have a great weekend.
XOXO Love, Fran.

So glad you popped over to my blog because now I get to see the upcycled bike! It is simply amazing! Too cool. Hubs did recruiting duty in Kalamazoo, Mi and I so miss living there. He doesn't because he's a Arizona guy so Tne snow was not a big hit. Anyhow, good to meet you and stop over anytime!
