The Blues Brothers

I was inspired by Karen on Gardenweb to make my own pair of Jake and Elwood Blues.
These were made out of a pair of old pink flamingos my Dads GF gave me. Thanks Janice! I also want to thank my daughters friend BF Alicia for going to Michaels in Sacramento to get the sunglasses and bringing them all the way to Redding for me!!! Thanks Alicia!!!! (((hugs to you both)))
Here they are in all their glory.

This is Elwood


Elwood and Jake together

I am sure that brought a smile to your face and a good chuckle(-: Until next time...

Great work Cindee ... the Garden Junk site at Garden Web is addictive isn't it

Cinj said...

Very cute Cindee. That's one of Cheesehead's favorite movies. I like those better than the "normal" flamingos. Nice to see a bit of personality in the garden too.

Hi creekside rummager,

Now that is perfectly smart. I like it with the licorice in the background.

I saw those on garden junk as well. Too cute. Much cuter than just plain old pink flamingos.
