Bicycle Art for the Living Room

We went to Southern California on vacation a couple of weeks ago.  The vacation started with a family reunion on a lake, then to the beach to see friends, then out to the Palm Springs area to spend time with more good friends.  We had a great time!   While in the desert, my good friend and I hit Home Goods.  As soon as I saw this picture, I was smitten!

I love canvas art, love flowers, love the bike, love the colors....  But, I had recently found a piece of typewriter art that I loved too.  I thought about it overnight, then rushed back to Home Goods and luckily it was still there.  I decided that I would change out the art as I change out the pillows with the seasons since I love both pieces.

I found these blue/green ticking pillows at Pottery Barn.  (I made the little pillows years ago)

I made this pillow recently.  You can see how to make one HERE.  I have a neat bicycle graphic that I will use on another pillow.  (The darn job is certainly getting in the way of all of the crafts I want to do!)

I found this birdhouse at Home Goods too.  It was on clearance. I love when that happens!

My sister and her boyfriend sent these beautiful flowers.

Thank you for your visit!

  1. Wow Pam! Love that art, and it looks great where you have hung it! Love the idea of changing it out for the seasons, though I am powering down on seasonal decor, and limiting it to a fewer items that I just adore.

    Hope your week is going well!
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love your bicycle art Pam. It's perfect for your family room! My motto when at HomeGoods, TJ Maxx or Marshall's is "if in doubt, buy it because you can always return it" if you don't like it when you get it home.

  3. Great buys, I love the bicycle picture. I have to get to Home Goods, I see so many of their products on blogs, we have one hear in Orlando...I have just never went!!


  4. Love the print, and think changing out artwork is a great idea. I do it to. Gives the area a fresh new look:)

  5. I love the bicycle art and changing it out for the seasons is a great idea. You found some great stuff at Home Goods. The bird house on clearance is too cute. I think it's time for me to make a trip to Home Goods!

  7. That is a great piece of art you have! I think the colors make it work with just about any color scheme you use. Everything goes together so well. Love it!

  8. Love the bicycle art. I change out pictures all the time, it gives a fresh look for not a lot of money.

  9. Hello,
