My Favourite Flamingo!


A Gothic Flamingo has moved into the neighbourhood!

I'm particularly excited about this new resident in Blogland because Rebecca, the woman behind Gothic Flamingo, is a buddy. I've also had the fun of seeing Bec's vision of a baleful birdy come to life, as my husband, Danny, created the illustration of her feathered friend for her.

Welcome to our charmingly creepy community, Gothic Flamingo!

  1. Thank you so much Emma, what a fabulous welcome! I am honoured to be given my very own post on my all-time favourite blog - Little Gothic Horrors has been inspirational in the creation of my baleful birdy and his musings :) The artwork Danny has created for me is absolutely perfect - he is a creative genius and has brought the vision in my head to life! Big Gothic Flamingo love ❤

    1. Ever since I saw the black "gothmingo" (as Laura awesomely phrased it) on your blog, Lucretia, I've been dying to show you this Gothic Flamingo! I'm thrilled that Bec has unveiled him! :D
