Okay, so there isn't actually a linky party called
What Bloggers Drive
But wouldn't that be fun?!?!
~ What Bloggers Wear ~
~ What Bloggers Eat ~
... okay never mind about that...
But let me introduce you to my car Gracie Lou.
(What, you don't name your car?)
And, yes, I do decorate my car.
(I did not do this for the photo-shoot, those who know me
would tell you they see this VW Beetle
about town just as it appears here : )
When you don't have to haul kids around anymore
There's all that space that says "embellish me"
either that or I'm just hearing it wrong.
Maybe it's really saying "wash me"
or "take me to the beach"
"I need some flowers and a chandelier!"
I keep the back seats folded down,
it's like a van back there!
Here's the bud vase
I am sad they aren't going to make this style Beetle anymore!
I've had this purple Beetle for several years,
and yes, it came this color!
I've only seen one other, but not very often,
so I feel like I have my own personalized car.
It has a opalescent paint that changes hues
and daily someone comments about the
C O L O R
(guys as often as women)
The chandy hanging from the rear-view mirror
(a Christmas ornament I use year-round)
and on the antennae is 3 colors of curled ribbon
that dances in the breeze as I drive.
So. The reason I named my car
GRACIE LOU ?
We once had a puppy with that name.
There was something about Gracie
that just made everyone SMILE.
( I suppose all puppies have that quality)
And this car has that same effect
Now, I don't tell most people my car has a name,
and I don't call her by it very often,
so that's just between us okay?
Sometimes the hounds just feel like going for a joy ride
