Flamingo Jealousy

ZootSuitMama had a giveaway and gave EVERYONE who entered a prize!  Since my current giveaway isn't generating much enthusiasm I may just wind up doing the same thing, saying thank you to those of you who take the time to stop by on a regular basis.  Also, there are a couple newbies who deserve a big GRACIAS, CHICA, too.  Anyway, I'll see. 

Miz ZeeEssEmm sent me a very cute plush flamingo--he's a Ty and I'm sure he has an official name but I always like to name toys "Fred" that I consider to be male.  First boyfriend, made an impression, yada yada yada.  She ALSO included a fabulous Florida ashtray.  Of course both of these wonderful items are heading for La Condo in about a week to join the flock.

Unfortunately for Fred, the one flamingo that hasn't made it yet to Florida, Miss THANG, took umbrage with this interloper's arrival and broke his little leg (which is really really hard to do when you're plush).  Miss THANG rules the roost around here but hopefully the flock at La Condo will be more accommodating to poor Fred. 

I think Miss THANG feels she's special since she was included when I purchased some rather pricey Red Wing pottery last year when I was spending money like a drunken sailor.  Bee-atch.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the weather holds out this evening for the Olde Towne Slidell Antiques District Block Party.  I'm taking two cases packed full of beautiful costume jewelry along with some small items like an antique Kodak camera, sterling WWII-era captain's bars, a vintage lady's Bulova watch, various interesting pieces of tobacciana including a beautiful .830 sterling Swedish cigarette case, etc. etc.

Happy Friday, y'all!


  1. Girl, you are getting a complex.

    I love you. It doesn't matter if anyone else does, because I'm the most important person in the universe, so there.

  2. lol@Barbara...

    Hey, you know how many newer blogs I have pimped over the past couple years, helping them to gain like a zillion followers? Now, do you think they REMEMBER that I gave them a jump start? Noooo lol.

    VALIDATION, we all need VALIDATION! Har!

    Welllll now I see you collect flamingos, eh? For La Condo? Hmmm... Tiki stuff too?

  3. Is that anything like'penis envy'?! Flamingo jealousy.....get it?

  4. You know I am jealous over the Flamingo love you received from Zoot Suit Mama. Maybe it's this time of year that the giveaway's are not getting so much attention. I will be glad to enter as many times as you let me (he he) cause I love ya girl. Hope the Slidell thing goes well. hugs, Linda

  5. Perfect little birdies for your condo! I'd send you Tootie's flamingo, but, alas, it has no insides anymore.

    I've been commenting on your posts, but none show up, so either you're trashing them or they are floating around as space junk like Russian spy satellites! I'm thinking the latter, LOL!

    Good luck at the show!


  6. Haha "Miss Thang" :) Chris I <3 you!

  7. Miss THANG is special! I love vintage ceramic flamingos...

    I'm having a giveaway right now too...and I'm finding that I have to round up "business" by posting on blogs and letting them know about it. It's the time of year when everyone's focused on other things like holiday shopping and parites - and that's a good thing!

  8. Hello Missus C! Nice flamingo stuff.
    Good luck at your shindig - I'll send you shopper's mojo so that you make lots of green.

    Love and hugs,
