Scooter Ornament Week Continues!
Glitterlicious Vespa

Turns out that 2011 has been a bumper crop of scooter Christmas ornaments. Ornament Week was supposed to be last just that long — one week. But they just keep coming. Here’s an adorable sparkler from Pier One Imports. It costs just $5.95 and measures 1.50″W x 5″D x 4″H.

This reminds me a lot of how I used to set up my 1960 Vespa VBA for Christmas. I have a saddle seat and a buddy seat. On the buddy seat I would bungie a little 2.5 foot aluminum Christmas tree. Then on went a string or two of battery-powered LED lights. It took me a couple of years of trial and error to get it all to stay on safely even in winds but it was a glorious sight.

Thanks to both Polianarchy and Phaedra for the photos and find.
