Im In Love

This car is the most adorable thing ever, its a Luigi 500, hubby actually wants it too.
He loves his cars and tends to change them every year, currently he has a Chrylser Cruiser, I hate driving it as it's a proper mans car...yuk, the fiat 500 is much cheaper and has a really low insurance on it, so we just have to have it don't we!! Now we are arguing over who will drive it if we do get one, we both like the cream coloured one but I want to have it as my car, I have a Honda FRV which is much more suitable for a man to drive than a Fiat 500, don't you agree!!!!

Hi Claire, Thank you so much for my goodies, I really appreciate it, it was such good timing this morning! My mum had one of these cars the first time round when I was little, it was a fab Kingfisher blue colour, next time I am at Mum's I will see if I can take a picture of the picture?!eh?!! Can you help and give me the lowdown on putting the logo award for The One In A Million Friend Award on to my blog? From the postmark on the parcel I see you are in South Wales, maybe one day in the near future we could meet up at Cribbs/Ikea - oh, gosh, do I sound like a Stalker?! Kathyx PS Don Quayle or Joan Collins??!!

Hiya! - thanks for your comments - 8yr old is much better (YOU know what boys are like!) he is running round demented today so I can officially say I think he is better! - Yes the wallpaper is Laura Ashley (Summer Palace) although it is duck egg blue, it has a fair bit if pink in it and the other 3 walls are painted pink so it still looks girly - Natalie x P.S - Love the car!

I love the car it looks lovely and zippy great for parking.
I like the Stuart little cars! cant remember what they are called and those mini van thingys!. I will just have to settle for our little clio! its only 2 door and rather annoying having to pull the seats forward so the kiddies can get in especially as one of the seats gets stuck all the time!

Hi Claire,
The paint was a Period crown colour for interior wood & metal(not smelly paint in the least). It is called flagon or flavon . I used every single drop up and had thrown pot away!. It really covered well and would totally recommend. I am keeping my doors now! before i wanted to throw them on a bonfire!.
ps let me know if you want to do the pay it for challenge too?!
