Look At The Sparkle...

I just had to share some vintage sparkly buttons I recently purchased for a project, but that's not the real subject of my post today...
Last week, I told you my brother-in-law, 'Ser, used my motorcycle to ride with the other Wild Hogs. He was so sweet. At the end of the week, he left me a gift card to our local Harley dealership to get my bike cleaned and detailed. We picked it up today. Good thing I was wearing my sunglasses!Handsome and his brother used to recite what I think was an old advertising jingle (for car polish)...and it's so appropriate today as I share the photos of my "Daisy Deuce":
"Look at her shine
Look at her sparkle

My Harley's got that

Arkadol Barkle..."

Thanks, 'Ser!!! The bike looks great!

For all my new followers who didn't know that I own and ride my own Harley...I hope I didn't give you too big a shock today! My bike is a 2003 (Anniversary Edition) Softtail Deuce. Handsome has his own bike - a 2004 Harley-Davidson Heritage Softtail Classic. I'll show you photos of his bike another time. One shock a day is enough, right?

I promise to return tomorrow with a crafty post!

Don't forget, I'll be drawing names on February 28th! I'm getting pretty excited. I hope you are, too!

Love the buttons! The bike is not so bad either!

Donna, A little surprised but love your bike. I rode one in my younger days, but took a bad spill on the highway one day and decided to give it up.
Be safe.
Looking forward to the drawing on Sunday and keeping my fingers crossed.

Your bike is a beauty. My daughter and son-in-law have bike's. He changed the paint scheme on hers and took it to a bike show and won first place. His bike was second. Even my grandson has his own little battery operated orange harley. I love your vintage buttons.

Nothing shocks me anymore. My SIL drives a Harley too! I'm jealous. There's nothing like the wind on your face on a sunny Spring or Summer day!

I love your Bunny Pin Cushion ~ it's so adorable ~ just had to purchase it from your Etsy Shop.

Your "ride" is Gorgeous!! Are you going to Bike Week? It's going to be so cold this year at Daytona with lots of rain tomorrow. :(

Thanks for the Atkins advice ~ I'm going to the library and getting the Book. It sounds like something that's actually doable.

Hope you have a "Hoppy" weekend. Thanks again for the Bunny Pincushion!!
