So.  I bought a rubber stamp from a crafting supply place, online.  Sometimes, they will include a bonus "something" as a thank-you for your purchase.  This is the bonus item I received with my rubber stamp.  A pink plastic flamingo, about 1.25" tall.  It stands by itself.

I have no idea why such an item was even produced.  It has no crafting purpose.  it's just a visual thing.  OTOH, maybe the supply place got stuck with an overload of small pink plastic flamingos and this is their way of spreading the wealth, whilst decreasing their supply.  LOL!

I have no idea what to do with it.  :-)

Tie a tiny little bow around the creature's neck, give it a girly name (Desdemona?) and present it as some kind of award at the next Arizona retreat.

Get those creative juices flowing, girl.

Pepto Bismol pink .. an award for an iron stomach for the person who eats the most Mexican food?

oooh, yes!   Now there's a superlative idea!   Hostesses, take note!   Desdemona is available as a door prize.  :-)

Pink for Patti?     (Ducking and running....)

1.25 inches tall?  It would be perfect for somebody with one of those old typesetting drawers used to display miniature items.  I have a very small collection of miniature items, but no such shelf to display them.  Another project for the "someday" list.  Hah!

A troll walking her pet flamingo.

Add some sand, a beach umbrella, a palm tree and you have a lovely .... what's the word .... diorama!

C'mon, Pirate ... maybe throw in a tiny treasure chest full of gems and loot.
