      We live on the water, so these little guys are at the edge of my backyard in a flower garden. Because they are not really tall, I improvised and used rustic tin planters as risers (just turned the planters upside down).

              This is the second time I purchased this for a gift and it has been well received both times. My friend is afraid to put it in her yard for fear someone will take it because it is so darn cute. The ends of the flamingo are not cut to make it appear as though it was ripped, so my husband used a pair of side cutters and that did the trick!

              Comments about UncommonGoods Flamingo-Away Sculpture:

              I read the comments other buyers had written about this, they were accurate, so I wasn't surprised. The flamingo wasn't shredded, which I think would make this all the more funnier. The critters were a little rusty, but that added to their charm. I also drilled holes in the bottom to allow for drainage, and put a clear coat of spray paint on them, so it wouldn't rust any further, as these guys are going in my garden. I'm also going to put a hole in the flamingo pieces, so water will drain out of them as well. I saw these at Mall of America in MN for a lot more than these were on line. I was prepared to pay their price, until a friend found these on this website. They are so worth the money, and they make me smile every time I see them!

              Service and delivery comments:

              The package arrived intact. It was packed in a ton of cardboard pieces, I'm pretty sure they never moved around in the box. My cats bat the cardboard packing material around the house (bonus toy for them!!) It arrived within the timeline promised.

                My sister and her husband loved these crazy lil guys!! Wish the flamingo body did look the picture on line as the break was clean and on line more of a shredded look. Nonetheless, they now have these fun little guys in their back yard for all to see!! Nicely done!!
