mon nouveau vélo


On Friday JB rushed into the kitchen where I was making this (so.good) and handed me a key. 
The keys to my new ... Bike.  
Oh.em.G.
I'm officially european.
i don't get keys to cars these days, i get keys to bikes.  
she's a peach.
she's a french brand ... so i have to come up with an appropriate name.
ideas?  

...

&
some other scenes from Basel this weekend... of course, more bikes, vespas, and flowers.
i can't help myself.
{a mint vespa.  #obsession}


Hope you all had a loverlie weekend!  
loves.
