A Wreath for Max

It is good to have a husband with many talents.

This afternoon Troubadour took an old tire from the Gladius
 and made a wreath to match Max's colors.

Thank you talented hubby, and thanks again for the idea Fuzzy.

  3. I must say though. When I read the title of this post, I thought "Oh no, what has happened to Max? Has he died?"

  5. Clever as hell, cute as a button!

    I thought it would be draped over his headlamp going down the road like the SUVs do!

    Love it!

    1. Don't think I didn't think about draping it over Max's headlight. not to ride but for photo opps. It was too much effort to dig the bike out of the garage though.

  6. I must say the creative juices are flowing. Now what did I do with that old knobby I had behind the shed?

    1. Come on, you know you need to make one. Dollar store garland look so much better when on a tire.

    1. You can do a smaller version with a scooter tire.

    1. Yeppers, that Fuzzy is a genius in coming up with it. I'm lucky hubby is crafty enough to execute it too.

  11. Are you sure it wasn't a current tire? Maybe you need to take a look at your bike....

    It was great seeing the both of you this morning and thank you for everything.

    1. A good excuse to ride Scarlet until you need a new tire. The sprocket was genius on Brad's part. He's crafty that way.

  13. Way too cute. What a great idea. I'm still trying to make a clock out of the clutch plate.

    1. I like the clock idea, but I think it would take a bit more work than garland on a tire. You know we all want to see pics when you get it finished though.

  14. Who'd have thought a tire could be elegant? That is actually beautiful!

    1. Brad was extra creative when he thought of the sprocket. Luckily there happened to be one hanging on the garage wall.
