Take Your Best Guess!

Well,
Today's the day.
What day, you ask?
Well, the day to paint
the bike.
Yes, Yes, It's true...
I garbage picked it...
Shhhhhhhh..
We don't want the 
neighbors to know!
You didn't really think
I could use
SPRAY PAINT
when SweetCheeks was here
did you, you silly goose?
We had other fish to fry...
er...crowns to polish...
and SPRAY PAINT
and SweetCheeks just kind
of sounds like a 
scary duo to me.
Now then..
Back to the bike painting~
Here are the choices.
Do you think I am going to paint
the bike 
THIS COLOR?
(I will list these for all
you color blind people)
#1 GREEN?
#2 PINK?
#3 TURQUOISE/AQUA?
above images here
#4  WHITE?

Did you know they call
white bikes
GHOST BIKES?
Well, they do!
No ghosts in my gardens so far...
although I have a few skeletons
in my closet...
And MyHero?
Well, he has even 
MORE SKELETONS
in his closet....
after all he once wore
something that looked like
THIS!

So, if he 
SHOULD OFFER
to help me spray paint
today I will tell him,
"Thanks, but no thanks".
C'mon...you'd say the same thing!
So...
What's your best guess?
#1, #2, #3, #4
Tomorrow we will see
how well you know me!

Not sure, but I will say #3.

GratefulPrayerThankfulHeart said...

I am thinking you will pick #2 PINK! Just for those little cuties in your life :)

Mark said...

#3!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I'm going to go with the pink, Diana! I can't wait to see it!

Musings from Kim K. said...

I'm favoring #3. Can't wait to see what you end up doing.

green,

Definitely pink.

FabShabbyRoses said...

OMGosh I'm going with #2 pink because I just love pink! And I can see a lady tooling around town on that bike, painted pink, with a basket on the front filled with flowers! awesome! Love your blog by the way! Such fun to read!

Gina said...

Hmmm...my initial thought was pink, but I'm not so sure. Aqua is my other thought.

Nancy's Notes said...

Oh my, this is tough Miss Diana! Okay, green!!!

Jettie said...

Personally that Green one, #1, is calling my name. Though this isn't about me, so I am guessing pink #2.

Anonymous said...

I'm thinking #2 but I would choose #1 if it was me.

Patty Patterson said...

I would paint it pink - because the green won't show up well in a garden full of green things. But - you didn't ask what I would do. I think you will paint it tourquoise/aqua.... number 3. And really, I don't know. It's just a wild guess!

Susie said...

Diana, That is the reason my own bike isn't painted..It's too hard to decide. Are you painting tires and all?? that's another choice. I love the green.. You know what the princess will want. Can't wait to see. Hero's shirt is wild.Smiles, xo, Susie

Julie Marie said...

Oh Diana, of course you shall paint it PINK!... and then you shall fill the basket with plants and flowers like heavenly blue trailing Lobelia and pink Ivy Geraniums and then I shall want one too... I can't wait to see her! (of course it is a "her"!)... xoxo Julie Marie PS Who doesn't have skeletons in their closets???... sometimes mine come out to play too!... like your super hero's shirt!

Cristina Garay said...

I think is going to be green!

Petie said...

I vote for green. Its the one color that will go with all the holidays.

Petie said...

Oops! All the holidays except for Valentines Day and Fourth of July. So never mind on the last comment about the holidays, hee hee. I still vote for green. Hugs...

Debby said...

Green one....the polka dots are so cute.

Donna said...

Oh Diana,

You beat me to it!! Of course it will be #4 - Princess Lane! After all, you are the Queen!

Guess that means you can have any color you want then.

Better keep Hero's skeletons in the closet. They say if we wore it once, we're not supposed to be wearing it next time around. Nothing sadder than a 50 or 60 something with saggy knees wearing a mini skirt! At least I thought those were her knees?! he he he! (I'm in trouble, huh? OK, going to the corner!)

I've been looking for a bike for the corner of my yard, and when my Sweetie finally realized what I was going to do with it - he said it better have training wheels on it or don't bring it home! Nothing THAT big is going in the yard! "But, Sweetie, it'll look great!! Please??" So it's a little bike now, but he doesn't know what else is going to be there with it - no he doesn't! Nope, and I am going to be in the corner for a long, long time!!!

Love you, girl!!
Donna

Debi WeeFaerie said...

You seem to be getting a bunch of pink votes but I'm thinking white. I can't wait to see what you decide!

Something Nice and Pretty said...

I love the pink and aqua but the green is pretty too...I guess I'll go with pink:)

Maureen Wyatt said...

I'm taking the Princess Way sign as the clue and going with white. Now, I'm wondering what those skeletons in the closet are! ~ Maureen

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Diana: Ghost or no. I still think you will paint it white. Whatever, it's too cute..Happy Monday..Judy

Jen Kershner said...

Well, I'm probably always going to vote for aqua if given a choice! I can't wait to see it. I've considered painting mine.

Unknown said...

number four white how striking.. I like ghosts !don't you ?

- KAT -
P S... On my Kat's Nature blog - I posted about a re-useable shopping bag that I designed and entered into a contest online. if you have time could you check it out ? I need to try to get people to vote on my bag ( # 30077 KAT Griffin)

If SHE can figure it out.......... said...

Depends on how much you're willing to risk - Dad probably won't like a pink bike in front of the house; the green might blend in too much in the yard; the white would show dirt really quickly; that leaves the turquiose. not sure you would actually have something that bright, since you usually favor white, but I'm gonna go with turquiose. I think it'd be cute!

Donna said...

I love the look of painted bikes! What a fun project! I vote for aqua, but I have a feeling you are going pink!

Unknown said...

I am thinking green. But then again green is my favorite color. lol. Not sure how it would show up in a garden though. Am I the only female that doesn't like the color pink? Pretty on some things,but just not me. I can just see this bike in a garden. It will look fantastic what ever color you paint it.

Debbiedoos said...

How cool Diana! I am loving the turquoise color.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I had a guess before I even saw the choices...that's how GOOD I am! I think it will be turquoise...it SHOULD be turquoise! I love it, girlfriend!

pembrokeshire lass said...

I think you'll paint it blue...with some silver stars... great doncha think?! Joan

Sherry said...

Oh gosh, I going with pink! If the bike is for Sweetcheek's I'm sure it's gonna be pink! But the white is kinda nice also. I guess I have to wait until tomorrow :-( Hey, but wait, today is tomorrow in the Bahamas...

Blondie's Journal said...

I say pink! I have an old pink Schwinn up at the lake and it's so darn cute! :)

XO,
Jane

Richella Parham said...

I almost always say GREEN, but this time I think I'm liking the aqua! I love that you found this bike in someone's trash!!

Diana LaMarre said...

I say #3, turquoise.

Sweet Tea said...

#2 Pink would be a beautiful backdrop for anything/everything in the garden.

I love getting to guess!!

Holly said...

You mean someone else goes dumpster diving too?!!! How cool is that! Well, as much as I LOVE pink and I do mean LOOOOOVE, I vote for the white one.
Can't wait to see the finished product!
xo

Sonny G said...

Love the green with cream polka dots.
LOVE THAT ONE

Nellie said...

I would pick turquoise! It seems like it's that kind of year.:-)

Sissie's Shabby Cottage said...

I'm thinking you'll go with pink with some white accents!

Ooh, I remember when we tie dyed our shirts and thought we were so cool!

hugs

Karen thisoldhouse2.com said...

hmmm.. pink, turquoise...pink.... turqouise... I don't know why, but I just wanna say PINK.

Little Miss Maggie said...

This post is like those cliff hangers on TV! I think you are a pink person. You are going to post early a.m. so as not to keep us in the dark. Right? I can't stand the suspense. Give us a clue.

SImple and Serene Living said...

I'm going with bike #3. :)

Blue Creek Home said...

Oh my! It could be any of them - you go good with pink but I'm guessing aqua/turquoise!

Japolina said...

White will be very snabby chic!

Susan said...

I like the green one with the polka dots!

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

I think you are going to pick two, white and aqua!

Debra from Bungalow said...

I vote for #4 because I happen to love that color! Thanks for coming by...come on back next week and link up some of your fav plants!

Heaven's Walk said...

The rainbow one! The rainbow one! Ooops....guess that's not a choice. Well.....I guess pink because SweetCheeks won't let you paint it any other color. hehehe! Btw - how's that garden comin'.....? :)

xoxo laurie

Anonymous said...

I'm choosing PINK!

Rebecca Nelson said...

Are you kidding me????

PINK you silly tie-dye loving goose!

xoRebecca

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

aqua? That's what I'd do, anyway. Really, you couldn't go wrong with any of those colors.

NanaNor's said...

Hi, Look at all these comments-boy are you popular!!!! O.k. so I'm love the green with polkadots and also the pink-those would be my choice. I think you like pink(or at least your grands do)so that would be my first choice-but truly I think the polka dots are soooo cool.
Have a great Tuesday.
Hugs, Noreen

jessica said...

#3!!!! or...hot pink :)

kinda kidding on the pink....

kinda...LOL

:)

Janet said...

Well,

I'm sorry I'd have to say that I would like the bike painted like the shirt. :)

Very colorful. But probably a little difficult to do.

I think all those colors would look great. Can't wait to see the after pics.

Happy painting. :)

Take care, Janet W ox

Maria Elena said...

I'm hoping for turquoise, but whatever you go with will be fabulous! I love a good bike with a plant or two in the basket.

farmhouse-story said...

andrea@townandprairie said...

That's the bike you started with? I swear, that was my first bike as a kid! Not a tricycle, but my first BIG girl bike...wide seat, breaks, the wire rack on the back, red and tan....that was my ride.
