I wanted to get this post out earlier but noooo in the morning I had to go with Mr Husband, at his request, to chose his new bike. He bikes everyday to work, around 40km a day. He loves it. There is no obligation, the car is parked outside, I barely use it. But he is trying to avoid traffic jams ( a very ussual thing in NL) and be healthy and green. Good for him... I 'll drink some tea and have some cake in his honor :)
So, the bike has to be... well, a good one. Durable. Resistant. 40km a day is quite a lot. Frankly, I wasn't expecting bikes to be so expensive. Serious... I don't know what was I expecting because...well... I don't ussually search for bikes, but 1500euros...the cheapest one... am I the only one who finds that a bit absurd?? a pair of good (but not the best) biking pants, 70euros... WHAT??? Sometimes I feel either cheap, or too disconnected from the (bike) world out there. Incredible.
I need to sell some stuff to pay for this bike... a kidney maybe? hahaha... no, here is my latest addition to the shop:
I used five silver wires onto which I added hand felted gray beads, seed beads and 4 handmade glass beads in orange, ivory and with details in actual silver!
It's a short necklace. I like it myself a whole lot. I didnt know orange looked so good with gray...orange is not my first choice color (which one is it?? yes, red...)... but the silver from the beads and the gray wool really look good together.
In the shop now!
I know I promised some ceramic buttons but the external hard disk, where all the pics go first... has dissapeard. I will have to go check in the little one's toys' chest... things seem to end up there... like a Bermuda triangle, all things within a certain radious of the chest, vanishes.
