Flamingo-osis in America

The pink flamingo is popular plastic lawn ornament that never goes out of style. Since the late 1950’s you can travel almost anywhere and see these bright pink long-necked birds decorating homes and businesses.

Bring home the colors of the sea, sands and sunsets

Folks in the Southeast USA get more than enough sunshine and vitamin D to keep their spirits high.  But even on a gloomy day you grab a can of cashews to increase your serotonin, and take a drive into one of the coastal communities and you will feel upbeat in no time at all.  Adding color to a house adds great curb appeal, personality and above all makes it a home.  A choice of paint color is not an impulsive move but more thought out like someone getting dressed to impress…..
