So I have a minor flamingo obsession, it started with lawn ones, because I like the kitschyness, mostly I have kept the rest of my collection to my bedroom. But these escaped



I live at number 8, but I haven't gotten around to getting a number, people are always moaning that they can't find the house. So in a fit of inspiration today, I free handed these. Crappy paints so I'll have to do something to protect them. But no-one is going to lose my house now!


I wasn't kidding about my bedroom. It's very small only about 10'x10' but there is a very substantial flamingo flock

I love personal swaps, for supplies, surprises, flamingo themed things and general silliness

I would love to get my hands on charlie harper fabric.

Oh you crazy thing you. Incidentally, 8 is my favourite number. Coincidence? I think not Cheesy.

That's a really creative way to do the number eight and I imagine that you could come up with all sorts of similar projects by twisting their necks around to spell other letters/numbers.  Thank you for sharing photos of your impressive flamingo collection too!

I suppose Ireland doesn't get too hot, but it might actually be better to have your flamingos inside like you do, because a guy I know used to live in Florida and it got so hot there one summer that his plastic lawn flamingos melted/wilted in the sun (they were probably el cheapo ones, but still)!
