I'm Grateful for Fake Flamingoes!

i'm grateful
for fun stuff today!

grateful that...
in this society people can be creative
and make fun stuff

grateful that...
we have enough to eat
so we have enough cash to buy fun stuff

grateful for...
a sense of humour
so i can laugh at fake flamingoes and myself for owning them!
{something i could never have imagined when i was a teenager}

grateful for...
an american from florida
who made the first fake flamingo from this mold in the fifties,
when lots of good things and people were being made!
{even me!}

grateful for...
miss b who shares my sense of humour
and gave me her collection as she is going away...

i am also grateful for fun stuff like
snow globes
battery powered toys
gadgets and gizmos
Christmas lights
whirlygigs and windmills on sticks!

have fun today at maxabella loves !

  6. Loving the Flamingoes! They are just so much fun, I love seeing them in people's gardens it really gives you a sense of their personality and outlook. I couldn't imagine a stuffy-uptight person having flamingoes in their garden!!
