pretty things: you say, “lambretta”, i say, “i want that”


(Photo sources: 1. 2.

Ever since my friend Andy posted a photo of a vintage Lambretta scooter on his Facebook page, I can’t stop thinking about vintage Lambrettas and their sisters, Vespas.

In truth, I do stop thinking about them. but every few weeks they will pop into my mind again, and I find myself on Google image search to get my vintage scooter fix.

These scooters make me a little weak in the knees.

I have a secret fantasy of stumbling across a cheap “barn find” and restoring it lovingly, piece by piece.

Why no, I have never taken on such a project, but I’m a smart lady and a willing learner and besides, I did say fantasy so stop asking annoying questions.
