Flamingo Kitchen Kitsch

Here is some sunny Friday fun for you. I’m channeling sunny Florida today, all the way from sunny northern Vermont.

Just when I think there couldn’t possibly be any more flamingo products in the world, my mother-in-law (to be) gives me a flamingo tea set as a gift. You think I’m kidding. I’m not. I’m also not kidding when I say I love it.

And now look what I’ve found:

What will they think of next? Actually, I probably do not want to know. Options are endless on sites like Cafepress and Zazzle. There must be some fine line that I should avoid crossing, right?


Who wants to have a flamingo tea party? Or a coffee party? Mugs can serve both purposes. We can have a leisurely afternoon and discuss buildings, communities, and saving the world.

Happy Friday!
