where did the cheerful flamingo come from?

Somebody once said of my pots with animals "they're always smiling!" and I s'pose that is a fact and also a point of pride.  Who needs gloomy animals on their mugs?

SO, you know, I was doodling with the brushes and got these guys :)

I love these guys...and it looks like blue inside and on the back? Great idea, as I would expect from you Gary! Keep em smiling.

Those are very cute.

We were just talking about pink flamingos a few days ago. The guy who invented the lawn art (among many other things) recently passed away. Can you imagine what it was like being him and seeing your art on so many front lawns?

I hope Debbie is getting these.

What fun. I had recently heard the story about the pink flamingo creator and his passing, on NPR.

Lovely. In our house, they're called Pink MaFlingos!!!

LOVE these!!!!!!! You could sell these by the boat load in Florida. Maybe I should start bootlegging your pottery down south. :)
