I love big dogs so I really fell in love with this pooch. The expression on her face makes her seem very lifelike. I wonder if the sand sculptors modeled her after their own dog?
This giant sea turtle looks like she just came out of the ocean, they even added coloring to make her "green"! You can't see it in the photo but they had a cute little starfish that was squirting water! They also added great texture on her legs. "Going Green" was the theme of their sculpture.
Can't make it to China for the Summer Olympics? Here's a mini version of the Great Wall of China, not quite like the real thing but very impressive. They even finished it off with the Olympic symbol!
I think the saddest part is at the end of the day...these beautiful pieces of art are washed away with the high tide. Well, I'll be sure to come back next summer to see what the sand artists come up with!

He was my third furry son. I really think Buster thought I was his Mom. The first year of his puppy hood was crazy! Buster was as stubborn as an ox and had as much energy as a teenage boy on Monster energy drinks. Then he grew, and grew, and grew until his body caught up with his enormous paws. I really could write a book about all of the crazy "Marley-like" antics he did...if you are a Labrador owner then you know what I'm talking about!

I belong to a great group of mosaic artists on Etsy! Together we share tips, ideas, and stories...some make me laugh until I cry! I just participated in the EMA "For the Birds" Mosaic Birdhouse Challenge. There were 24 amazing entries submitted. My birdhouse was inspired by the many surfboards that hang over my head in my garage studio!
You can view all of the entries and vote at etsymosaics.blogspot.com until July 16th at 11:59PM EST.
