Here's my latest creation, a Vintage inspired Scooter - finally out of my imagination onto paper! This one has been in the works for awhile but I just couldn't seem to get it to come out the way I'd imagined. I kept at it and am now really happy with the results. I knew it was just right when my 4 year old noticed it sitting on the shelf yesterday morning and said "Mom! You made a SCOOTER!"
I think my favorite part of the piece is the old, rusty pail full of Forget-Me-Knots though. It turned out so sweet; the extra effort for the little flowers was well worth it; the blue of the flowers really pops against the orange of the pail and scooter.
The finished size of the scooter is approximately 6" high x 6" long - a perfect size to add to a summer time display or on a shelf all by itself. I think it would make a great gift too - perhaps for an extra special teacher at the end of the school year? Or how about as a small centerpiece at a Vintage themed wedding? I love that something like this can fit into pretty much any decor!
