Tumblr Tuesday: Pink Flamingos and Cake Frosting

A colorful paint job can make even a wooden skeleton look (mostly) cheerful; Wearing Baroque floral arrangements on your face is so not-Fall, but I love it anyway; Something about the coloring of flamingos has always appealed to me; I will definitely be employing the over-the-knee socks + shorts combo this season; I made the mistake of buying cake frosting last week and have been craving its thick, sugary goodness ever since; I love that
