Siesta Key Sand Sculpture Contest

104There was a very large sand sculpture building contest right next to where we are staying in Siesta Key, Florida.   There were some very talented artists that participate in similar contests around the world.

The above photo is of the first place winner that was titled "The Circle of Life"

My favorite sculpture was titled "Let Us Be".  The theme was keeping baby turtles safe.   It is a law in Florida to keep your lights off at night so the baby turtles won't go toward the light. They are attracted to the light and when they try to reach it, they might never make it back to the safety of their mothers or get eaten by predators :(


Here were some other amazing sculptures:

Have a wonderful holiday!

Night Owls, Cats, Vacuuming, and Duni :)

I know my title is bizarre!  I was tagged by one of my favorite bloggers to answer a few questions:

1. Early bird or night owl?

2. If you could be an animal, what would it be and why?

As much as I would like to be an animal at the top of the food chain like an elephant, tiger, or lion, I would choose to be a regular house cat.  I do want to be one who is kept indoors, with lots of toys, healthy food, and especially loving owners.

3. What is your least favourite daily chore?

That's easy!

4. Which crafty person do you greatly admire and why?

This is the easiest question of all.  I didn't have to think about the answer a bit!

I'm sure many of you recognize Duni from Lovely Purses

I have ordered a few beautiful items from her that I will show you in a future post.  I am so looking forward to her pajamas or whatever new creations she adds to her awesome site:


I highly recommend her work.  It is FLAWLESS!  

Thanks so much for visiting and I hope everyone is having a great week :-)
