With it being winter, there haven’t been as many scooter sightings in my world these days. I see a couple of die-hard scooter riders around town, all bundled up and looking like the Michelin man. I discovered a couple of months ago that riding a scooter in the cold air at 30mph, not to mention rain, is damn cold! I would rather ride my bike, at least I’m working and keeping myself warm. So my scooter is not getting a lot of use lately, but I thought I’d share a few scooter sightings of a different, and warmer sort!
On one of our trips before we left Italy I had purchased a couple of these metal scooters. One large one that decorates the living room, and after much debate, I splurged on this smaller orange one. Had to have the orange! When we got back to Oregon, it never showed up. I thought I remembered buying it, I remembered that internal debate, but no scooter to be found. Until Christmas time rolls around, and we unpack the ornaments. Yes! There was this cute little scooter for my studio, wrapped in bubble wrap and tucked in with all of the ornaments. Yay!
But that’s not the end of the “indoor” scooter sightings…
Last week, I came in to work one day to this scooter mug on my desk. How cute is this! A friend at work and his family had been on vacation and saw this in a Starbucks, and couldn’t resist. It just screamed my name, they said. Yay for scooters as surprises!
Then this week, I got a package in the mail from a fellow blogger in Germany. Huh, what was this? I open it up to find the cutest scooter magnets ever, and a note that she saw these and thought of me. Scooter surprise number two!! Thanks Rosie! I love them.
It’s so funny what I wrote about surprises this week, how I love the completely out-of-the-blue kind, and here are a couple of them coming my way. Lucky me.
I also love it when I get an email from someone with a scooter picture, or a link to something scooter-ish. It never fails to make me smile! I’m wishing I had saved them all. But I think I’m going to do this once in a while, a post on Scooter Sightings. If you have any scooter pics, see any cool scooter products, drop me a note. They always make me smile and I’d love to share them here.
Happy Scooter Hunting!
A couple of unrelated notes…
