Donald Featherstone

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty AR LLC PB00068179

Donald Featherstone was born in Worcester, Massachusetts back in 1936.  He graduated from the Worcester Art Museum’s art school in 1957.  Shortly after graduation he went to work for Union Products, Inc. 

 

In 1996, he was president of Union Products, that same year he received the Nobel Art Prize for one of his creations. I don’t know when he married Nancy however, for over 35 years they dressed alike, quite an accomplishment don’t you think?  Anyway, let’s move along, he retired in 2000.  

 

What you may not know about Donald “Don” Featherstone is that in 1957 he created the iconic “pink flamingo” yard ornament.  He kept 57 of those plastic flamingos in his front yard.  Not bad for a person in their first year of employment, they are still in production to this day.  Until tomorrow keep that smile on your face, pass it on to someone in need

The good thing about being so much older is that the cost of a flamingo per year for me is prohibitive.

The infamous pink flamingo, James! Thankfully, they are banned as yard ornaments in most of our communities. Meantime, can't quite see myself dressing like my husband or him dressing like me.

Good morning again James. I think the flamingo thing is neat but dressing alike for all those years is incredible.

I did once wonder how those came into existence. Thank you for putting that mystery to rest. I hope you have a satisfying day.
