It all started a week ago. My hubs decided that he didn't like the mirrored star that we had on the mantel. So we set out last Sat & Sunday to about 8 different stores. Once he gets something in his mind, we have to do it right away. I love to shop, but I was pretty grumpy by the end of the day last Saturday. Our last stop was to Pier one & we saw a pretty butterfly painting, so we got that for the mantel, but when we got it home & put it above the mantel it didn't look right. Earlier that day we were in Kohls & saw a metal bicycle. It was really cute & I liked it for our front yard, with some flowers in it. Hubs fell in love with it for our mantel. Out of all the stores that we went to, that was his favorite thing that he saw. So he talked about it all week. I had mentioned going to Hobby Lobby & checking out what they have, but they were closed last Sunday when we were thinking of going. By Tuesday after him talking about his beloved bicycle for a few days, I gave him a coupon for Kohls & he went during his lunch hour to get it. So today he tweaked it. He cut off 1 of the handle bars, so it won't stick out too far & ran to Home depot to get some hangers for it. He asked me if I loved it & I still don't, but he's happy. Maybe it will grow on me. I don't hate it & I know it's modern & arsty, but just not my favorite idea that he's had. The butterfly painting is now hanging in our bedroom. It looks nice in there. So this is the bicycle above the mantel.
