Yard Sale Score: Welcome, Fiona!

Five dollars. I couldn't believe this yard sale find this morning! Let's just say not everyone in the family was as enthusiastic as I was...but for $5, I didn't hear too much complaining. This Florida flamingo is now affectionately called Fiona (Papa's idea...I think he's warming up to her), and it wasn't until we got home and plugged her in that we realized she is not only luminous, but her wings and neck move. BONUS.

Florida....

We did see a plastic flamingio with lots of chinesse laterns poking its pink head out of a window in a Swedish City yesterday though.... Quite an unusual sight!

(so the code word on blogger for me to type/ leave my comment is ~vagisms~! WT heck??? New word of the day, I guess. Like kegels, perhaps.)

Wow. Almost makes me want to pull our old pink flamingos out of the garage. Almost.

Gotta go do my vagisms now.

Ha Ha. I love it - the perfect yard ornament for an award-winning landscape architect's yard. You go girl!
