I have a secret love for flamingos
I think I've always kinda liked them....but a new found love for them is starting to brew inside me
Not only are they my favorite color....but they're just so...sooo.....nerdy?! There's something awkward about them that I love. Does that make any sense?
Almost like they're kinda of the underdog and I'm rooting for them. And they can twist and bend in ways I can only hope I will get to someday with my yoga practice. I basically strive to be a flamingo.....Ok not really. But I want to bend like one for sure!
Anywho....I can totally see myself being that crazy old lady with a bunch of flamingos in her yard....I freakin love them!
When I broke the news to The Boy that I wanted to put a flamingo in our yard his response was "Only if it's wearing sunglasses"
So I ran out the next day and bought a cheap one from the dollar store. I was far too excited and impatient to figure out the whole sunglasses thing....so I decided to go with gems
A gem covered flamingo
Cheesy as hell? Yep.
Awesome nonetheless? Absolutely.
And just so I fulfill The Boy's wishes....I think I might have to go buy another one just to give it some sunglasses. I wouldn't want my poor hubby to be disappointed now would I?
I think it would have been alot cuter if I had used a faceted type gem instead of these plain ones....but I was overly excited and eager to make one that I didn't care at them time and used what I had on hand
Does that mean I have to make yet another one? I think so!
Before you know it I will have a whole flock of flamingos in my yard. Stay tuned for the flamingo fun
