Hello, everyone! I hope you are all doing well on this wonderful Wednesday! have you noticed that Flamingos are starting to become the new Unicorn? I've been seeing more and more of flamingo-inspired products around a lot more here lately. (Same thing with pineapples but more on those another week!). I feel like it's time to hop on the pink flamingo train and start showing these beautiful birds some attention. Enjoy!
Item #1 is from TheTeeStudio
I had to laugh really hard at this one! Probably a little too much, but I do think it's cute. Pink lawn flamingos just hanging out real chill like in the yard...I could see that as a spirit animal! You can get one of three shirt colors with color options for the text--the flamingo will always be pink (otherwise it wouldn't be a pink lawn flamingo that was your spirit animal, right?). Unisex and ladies' sizes are available in case you'd like to get one for your significant other ;)
Item #2 is from NordicDesignHouse
We've got to have a minimal art print in here somewhere, right? I saw this one a really liked it. I feel that the background color really balances out the pink in the flamingos to where it's not too "Bam!" in your face. I also like how long their little leggies are! This print is available in a variety of sizes, so pick your favorite!
Item #3 is from GOODAFTERNINE
Alrighty, this was one thing I had a little trouble finding--a flamingo ring. I knew this one would be the perfect one for this post. I love how it looks like the flamingo is popping his head up from a nap to say hello! There is a nice variation is the pink color of the feathers just like you would find in flamingos everywhere. I think a ring like this brings more beauty to the bird and helps us appreciate its existence even more. This ring comes in sizes 5-7, and you can wear it on any finger you choose.
Item #4 is from EyeCandySugar
This purse is something that I never imagined I would come across, but it somehow showed up in my browsing and I thought, "WOW! That's a genius idea! How has no one ever thought of this before?" This is pretty neat and would be great for a beach vacation, shopping, pool, etc. I would be an eye catcher for sure and a great conversation piece ;) I personally think it'd be a great way to show your personality a bit without having to say anything! Bamboo handles have bee attached to the inside for increased durability, and the inside is lined with pink fabric. Make sure you check out the maker's blog for more fabulous items!
Item #5 is from DessiDesigns
Oh, cell phone covers..What would we all do without you? We'd all break our phones, that what. I like how the clear material allows for the back of the phone to show through...makes it look pretty neat. The designs on the cover are actually watercolor designs done by the maker! How neat is that?! I wish I could do that! I love the vibe this phone puts off--beachy, chill, and cool af. It's one you'll need on your next vay-cay, honeymoon,..or why not every day?
Item #6 is from IvMarART
I LOVE the colors of this print. The combination is absolutely gorgeous! It has a very beachy vibe, but I could see it in almost any space. I also like how the flamingos are more detailed up front but turn more into a rough sketch the further they go back. There are several sizes to choose from depending on the size of the space you would be putting it in--not too big, not too small; just like Goldilocks!
Item #7 is from EvasEmporium
Ever need a little help getting some shut eye? Maybe a nap during the afternoon or on a long plane ride? Sleep masks can be wonderful for this. I personally will probably be getting one before we go on our honeymoon so I can sleep better on the plane (of course there's only so much restful sleep you can get on there, so why not try for it?!...gotta get that melatonin too). This mask has a very cute flamingo and palm tree print fabric decorating the outside. I can't just go with a plain black sleep mask like my fiance....I've gotta have some color! Some Pizzazz! This will be softly padded and stay on your face with an elastic band that goes around your head (also keeps that pesky light out). ;)
Item #8 is from TheRedUmbrellaShop
Don't you get tired of seeing the same old shower curtain every time you go into the bathroom? Sometimes, you need a little change up..especially if you live near the beach and even if you don't. The yellow and pink would definitely add a pop of needed color to your bathroom, but there are also other background colors to choose from. How fabulous would you look singing in a shower with a shower curtain like this?!?!
Item #9 is from ThriftyBitchVintage
Here's another item I didn't think I'd come across. it's a pink flamingo lamp! I honestly would never have thought about converting a lawn flamingo into a lamp! Awesome innovation! These come in a pair of two lamps with black bases (right now). These would be a great conversation starter and a wonderful addition to a man cave (hey, pink can be manly!), nursery, play area, or just a lounge in general. I also like the two different poses of the flamingos. I had a nice giggle while reading through the listing..."Grandma will be the envy of the nursing home," and that's the truth!
Item #10 is from EverythingSheWantsTo
I think these straws are absolutely adorable! Who would want a plain straw when you can have these cuties?! These come in a set of 12 straws, so there are plenty for a small get together. They'd be great for a birthday party, a bachelorette party, or just hanging by the pool or tanning!
That's all I have for you this week lovelies! I really hope you've enjoyed this week's Weekly Wednesday. What do you think about pink flamingos? Do you think they're becoming the next unicorn? Let me know! Now, head on over to your favorite handmade site and show some artists some love!
Until next time,
