Thanks to Casper ter Kuile for alerting me to this amazing tumblr – Rides A Bike – featuring old Hollywood stars and their steeds. I am just dying to make like Grace Kelly and ride a bike side saddle. How ridiculously impractical and yet SUPER COOL.
Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly
Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward
And speaking of bikes, applications for the 2011 Otesha Project cycle tours are now open! Sign up for the most fun (and most challenging) 6 weeks of your life!
Okay, so one of my second goals was to craft more. I definitely haven’t done as much as I wanted to (that curtain material is still, well, material) but I did sew my friend a birthday present and I made another one an ipod cover, so not tooo shoddy. I did have big, mega plans to stock my folksy shop full of goodies, but that will have to wait till next year and after my 3 HOUR CLIMATE SCIENCE EXAM in January.
BUT. If people do want cute christmas decorations or stocking fillers I will make them to order! Visit the Shop tab at the top of the page, or click here! I’ve got two designs in the shop at the moment, but if you have anything special you want it to say, I can do that too. I can do anything!
Good god I want one of these! “Horsey” by Eungi Kim from Korea is one of the shortlisted design entries in the Seoul cycle design competition. Kim says, “‘Horsey’ is an attachable bicycle ornament/accessory which makes one’s bicycle look horsey! The ‘horsey’ package includes wooden ornaments (horsey shape body), metal parts, and screws. The manual is very simple so that anyone can easily arrange it according to one’s needs. Through this ‘horsey’ project, I wanted to give a special look to bicycles so that people would care about cycling not only as transportation but also as a lovely pet.”
I would like to care about transportation as a lovely pet.
