I am obsessed with the pink flamingo!
I blame my obsession on Target. A few months ago, I received my weekly email from Target introducing their Pillowfort line. When I saw their pink flamingo sheets, I fell in love. One large problem. They were already sold out of the sheets.
My sister came to my rescue. She purchased these sheets on-line as a birthday present for me. Some days it is good to be me!
I had just begun making decisions for my guest room refresh. My plan was for the room to be shades of navy blue and gold. I quickly decided to add a touch of hot pink into the room design.
That “touch” of pink has quickly morphed into a new pink chair, pink and whitesheets, a pink lamp along with pink art.
I decided to paint the artwork for the room myself. This wild and crazy bird was my first attempt. She was fun and colorful, but I felt something was missing. I liked her, I just didn’t love her.
I was doing a little late night browsing on my computer and came across a coffee mug with a pink flamingo on it. I knew immediately that I had to try something similar. Winner, winner, chicken dinner. I have my artwork!
My obsession didn’t stop there though. I found this really cute wrapping paper at Michaels. I thought that it would make a great drawer liner for the guest room dresser.
My turquoise tray that I keep out by my redneck pool also needed a face lift. The face of the tray was peeling and was a mess.
A little wrapping paper along with some Mod Podge transformed that tray into a beauty!
Now my tray looks perfect on the poolside bar. See the pink flamingo on the tray? It is a bottle opener! I was doing a little shopping at Kohl’s where I found my bottle opener. He was sitting, patiently waiting for me to buy him right next to the check out. Half price. It was meant to be!
I can’t help buying these cute birds. They are everywhere I look lately. You will be proud of me though as I have resisted the urge to buy more. I found a print of a pink flamingo with the caption that read: “Who you callin’ tacky?” Seems like it might be time for this girl to find a new obsession.
