meet miss blue belle

I get things in my head & then can't get them out...I guess that's the definition of an obsession.

{its funny, I never get obsessed about things like keeping a clean house or eating healthier...}

then, for the heck of it I checked craigslist the other day.

there were a surprising number of blue bikes to choose from...

I ended up getting this one:


once I got her home I, of course, had to take some photos:
