I Want To Ride My Bicycle

So I am preparing to make a move back to London in the summer and I have been thinking a lot about public transportation.  During the summer the buses are smelly and the tube is stuffy and transportation, no matter what the season, is a crowded nightmare.  In an attempt to save money and go a little more green I am considering investing in a bicycle.  But that leads me to my main problem... I know nothing about bikes.  

I'll tell you what I do know....
-The last time I seriously used one as a mode of transportation I was 13
-I want one with a basket on the front
-It will save me money and take me one step further away from the sweaty tourists
-If its good enough for Audrey, its good enough for me
(You can buy this as a print here)

So what is a girl to do?  I am going to do some research on bicycles and then see if I can even muster the courage to take it out onto the roads.  That is probably the scariest part.  London drivers are maniacs.  I guess if worst comes to worst I can simply look glamorous leisurely riding a darling bike around some safe, driver free park.

The Morose Bee

Ladies and Gents, we have found the cutest place on Etsy! 
The Morose Bee is an adorable store of hand made things and vintage finds.  She has everything from monster canvas bags to tea cup rings.  All of her items are really quirky and fresh looking.  And hurry fast! You have one more day to get a free mustache ring with each order to celebrate March Mustache Madness!! Best of all, she does her best to go green and use recycled material in all her products.  So go, be a doll and check out this darling Etsy-er!!

Here is a little taste of what she has to offer....

This speech bubble necklace is blank so you can write and re-write your own message!! And at $14 it is a complete steal!

Copper LOVES this monster bag! Its $20 and its pretty hard to resist.  Kinda girly and a little dorky add up to be totally adorable!

Simple one inch white ceramic ring decorated with flecks of blue and purple glaze as well as white, blue, and orange swirled glass center. Can you get any better?!

Copper & Tod

Just so you folks know... Our real names aren't Copper and Tod.

Those names came about when Copper decided that the anthem of our friendship was "When You're the Best of Friends" from quite possibly one of the best of the movies of all time, Disney's The Fox and the Hound.  Naturally, the scent of new nick names was filling the air.  It all worked... Copper (the bibliochic gal, not the dog) has red hair and I (Tod) am just a little too wild for my own good, much like my foxy counterpart.

So there you have it.  Just a little more about our story.


Today's topic of conversation has been about love.  Great love, tragic love, unhealthy love, unrequited love... you get the point.  Lots of love.  So our question to you - what are the greatest love stories?

Our Story

Our story begins when two friends met in London and discovered they shared a love affair with all things books.  As time has passed and we have moved, but not moved on, we have found a way to share our love of all things books with others.  Through revitalizing pages of old, we have created a variety of knick knacks, odds and ends, bits and bobbles to surround ourselves and those we love with the books we love.  So grab a cup of tea, sit down in your comfy chair, and browse the chic book products made for chic book people.
