No ticky No tacky

No ticky No tacky

Escape to a world of quiet glittery flamingos and set your mind free.

This means that for every measure of ticky there is an equal and proportionate measure of tacky. In this balanced space-time math equation we find the meaning of life between the scintillating flamingos. There is nothing more beautiful than accepting the energy of the things we consider our flaws. Are we tacky?  Hell yes. Does it provide the ticky? One can only hope.
