Pink Flamingo Day

Did you know June 23 is Pink Flamingo Day? Pink Flamingo Day was declared in 2007 to honor the work of Don Featherstone, creator of the plastic lawn flamingo, who sadly passed away yesterday. You can read more about the history of the kitschy pink plastic bird in a post I wrote here

I am a huge fan of flamingos of all kinds, and I have always loved this amazing wallpaper by Cole & Son. How fabulous is this bedroom designed by Cristin at the Simplified Bee for her daughter and featured in Rue Magazine? I am in love! 

Happy Pink Flamingo Day!

  4. June 23rd is my Birthday. What a happy theme for my day. That is a lovely, not too kitsch flamingo wallpaper. The first time I saw a real flamingo was when I visited San Diego Zoo when I was living in the US for a few months as a little girl of 7. (I am an Australian). It is a very special memory and I was delighted to see the pond at the entrance, still just as magical, when I revisited two years ago.

  5. Love this. June 23rd is also my daughter's B-day. Cute.


Thank you for your lovely comments. They absolutely make my day!
