Since Easter 1978, Donald and Mary Featherstone have been wearing matching , home-made outfits. It all started on a brutally hot day when Mary offered to make Donald a short –sleeved shirt to wear instead of his suit and tie, which was his usual outfit at the time. Since then, Mary has taken up making clothes for Donald, and then using the extra material to make a matching outfit for herself. Mary jokes that, although it’s only the two of them in a big house, all the closets are full. However, this is not the Featherstone’s only claim to fame. Donald, 77, is also known for creating the original pink lawn flamingo! Talk about a truly unique couple.
