confessions of a pinaholic Flamingos

Happy August Everyone, so my pinterest boards just hit 1000 followers.  I thought I would celebrate by sharing this board with you.

So if you didn't already know this about me I love flamingos. I mean I really do so much in fact that not only is my yard decorated with them but so is my kitchen.  My flamingo pinterest board has over 200 pins.  They range from photographs of real flamingos to plastic pink flamingos and everything in between.

It was really hard to choose just a few to share with you but I did it so here they are.  If you want to see more here is a link to the board. flamingo board

 I love chenille bedspreads and well this one would be my top choice!!!

OK this dress I pinned myself from etsy (it is still for sale at a measly $60) I would buy it but would have nope hope of ever fitting into it.  So pretty!!!!!

OK how cute is this fascinator!!!

 I am a total sucker for these mid-century ceramic flamingo figurines.

Don Featherstone the creator of the pink plastic yard flamingo.  I was reading something recently about his wife.  Apparently she sews him fun flamingo shirts and makes herself something to match.  How cute is that!!!!  Way to go Mrs Featherstone!!


  1. Wow!!! Those flamingo items are so cool!! My favorite is the Venetian Blind lampshade with the very cool flamingo base! We have a few of the Venetian blind lampshades (a turquoise one with a phone base, a green one with with a panther base and a red one with an Asian theme) but no flamingo base. One day, we hope!!! How very cool!!!!! (Rob)

    1. Rob I think you should write a blog about your collection. I only have one Venetian shade lamp. It is red with an Asian theme.

    2. Hmmm...we will take some pictures this week and maybe post them!

    3. We posted them...come take a look (Rob)
