Yippee!  I'm on the World's Longest Yard Sale!
Thanks to all of you who convinced her to take me
and those who offered names!
I am now know as
Kirbee Pinky Flamingo!!

Here I am in the car as we left home Thursday!
Pumping Gas!  This Flamingo has to earn her trip!
We traveled all the way to Kentucky on Thursday.
Yesterday we worked our way South.  It was hot and humid
but we had fun!!  FUN I tell you!  
So far no Flamingos but a few other treasure she will show you once she gets home tomorrow.  
I was one exhausted Flamingo I tell ya! 
Got a good nights sleep and we are off again for more junkin!

Yippee!!  Oh and the name me winner was Jenn!
I'll be looking for a prize for you today!

That's all folks!

Kirbee Pinky!!

Oh, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!!! And I HELPED with the middle name, Pinky!!! NO, I'm not looking for a prize, just for the fun of HELPING.

Were you already watching my blog last summer when B & B were traveling WI??? (I just can't remember WHEN I 'picked up' each of my bloggy friends) 'cause they pumped gas and slept in various places too!!!

Such a fun post - - - keep it up!

Enjoy the junkin' and Kirbee, try to keep her from spending TOO much.

Well, Kirbee, it's nice to meet you. So glad you could accompany Linda on her fabulous trip. I'm a bit envious that I couldn't take such a trip...but maybe next year.

Blessings...and happy, safe travels,

Thanks for the little tour Kirbee! I love your little pink blankie, you are such a cutie.

Keep an eye on Mommie and make sure she buys lots of good stuff.


Susan said...

Dear Kirbee: Well, my gosh, you are the cutest darned flamingo I've ever seen. Of course, I haven't seen too many but you are the pizazz. So glad you are having fun at the world's longest taggie. Hey, say hi to Linda for me, will you? And please tell her to look for your cousin, Pinkalingo the Flamingo. You need company! Love, Susan

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Wow, you went all the way to Kentucky and back. That sounds like fun and exhaustion. I saw a big flamingo metal planter at the flea market today and thought of you.

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

I can't wait to see all your treasures...I so wanted to go, but it just wasn't in the cards:(

Hey little KP! I'm so glad you and Linda had such a wonderful time yard saleing! I've always thought the longest yard sale would be wonderful to go on. Wish it came around close to me!
Glad you've gotten your rest and will be looking forward to what you bought!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
