Animal Prints Are In This Year {the flamingo returns}

She's back. Last year's diva.


And this time, thanks to a bit o' craft paint, she's got stripes.

Behold the zebringo. Or flamibra. I haven't made up my mind yet.


And look-y look what I got in the mail from my sister. How she knew I was going trashy this year, I'll never know. So unexpected. But she could feel it with her sisterly vibes and vortexes and such and knew that a trailer trash tree isn't complete without a random shopping cart parked in it's boughs.

Or can only holly have boughs?

In any case, FAVORITE. ORNAMENT. EVER.







P.S. Sarah's having a Tree Party starting tonight - go get inspired.

  3. Beyond brave. You are the best mom ever...if I ever put a flamibra and a shopping cart on my tree, my kids will arise and call me blessed until the cows come home. Or the flamibras. Either way.

    This is the rockin'est tree I've seen in blogland, and that ain't no lie.
