Dream Shoes

Slow and Steady Wins the Race gets me every time.

Why yes, my ballet flats do say 'ballet flat' on them.
I'm trying to wear more heels, so this is my
'Ode to the Best Pair of Short Shoes.'

But if we're talking about heels I do have a Wish List

Thank you Tim Walker
Thank you Italian Vogue

Bicycle Dream

I fantasize about a life with a bicycle,
JUST like Freddie Mercury.

You know, the one where you ride your bike to the Farmer's Market to buy vegetables like summer squash and purple asparagus.
. . . and you actually eat those vegetables instead of oreos for lunch.

So when I saw the site for Beg Bicycles
I started to drool.
True, it's a UK site but they do offer to ship to the States (in addition to Italy, Turkey and Australia -- which is so sweet of them).

This is the Betty bike:
which looks perfect for me
because on the front rack I'll put THIS
. . . and, you know, fill it with wild flowers
from the countryside (not oreos)

I always carry giants bags so my perfect bike
will have more storage than a car.

Ergo, this dream sequence will also have a Collina Strada
canvas and leather bag hanging from the back
(that you can buy at Need Supply Co.)
And just for good measure I better throw in an
Original Flea Bag to store in the basket
(if this is a fantasy I want to do it right - which is why I chose an all-white bag).

So there you go:
Ladylike bicycles, farmers markets and bouquets of flowers.

In the meantime those free bike rides
courtesy of Bike and Roll will have to do.

Happy is a by-product of an effort to make someone else happy.
