As defined by the Hawaiian dictionary is an intimate friend. 

Well, i certainly hope to have a better relationship with this bike than my last! We didn't see much of each other and when we did i felt like i put more into the relationship then he did.  

Found this cutie at a garage sale and just felt compelled to bring him home. What's not to love i mean it has white walls and great vintage styling and a red and black color scheme. What do you guys think?  I told Cliff i wanted a basket on the front so i can got to the store and put things in it and he said next thing you know i would have streamers hanging from the handles.

Another Pinteresting Day

While i actually finished this project last night i didn't take the photos of them up on the counters until today!  Of course i originally found this idea on Pinterest while researching another idea and i knew immediately knew i had to make them.

They are easy to make and really have a great vintage marquee style to them. I created this gif so that you can see what it looks like lit up and not lit.

This is what the backside of the letter looks like, had to put holes in it to accommodate the lights.

The front/inside of the letters.

Testing the lights to see how they look in each letter.

The finished letters before i put them into place on top of the cupboards.
