i still saw them in someone's yard on sanibel island and thought it would be fun to bring them to our backyard... remember's lucy's 'thing' for flamingos? well they really are everywhere this summer... including all over ikea.
it was pretty funny taking them home in my carry-on with lucy's socks covering their heads (to avoid having the paint scratched).
i don't typically buy souvenirs from the souvenir shops... these little vintage tin plates from 'islander trading post antiques' are perfect for lucy's play kitchen. they're also a nice memory of our beautiful day of picking oranges ♥
p.s. i totally recommend the antique shop - it's jam-packed with great stuff... but it's really well organized and very clean... rare for antique shops around here...
