Sand Castles and Children's Rooms

Friend Pat showed her snaps from the beach near here - they held their yearly competition. Just look at the emphmeral art of the sandsculptors! Wow.
a rose is a rose?

breeezy!

for the animal lover...
images from Eijffinger

I also found some great wall stickers - which to me, not being a big big fan of this sort of "decor" turned me into a believer. These are Eijffinger images for your wall or your children's wall. OK I wouldn't put them on my wall, but for a child's room, or hmm why not that big rose for a small bathroom for some punch? OK maybe! They are from the Netherlands, but if you contact the company here, they can ship. Seems like they are open to it. And some of the images are really full of fun ...
My daughter's room is finally finished, (just in time for her arrival home today from camp!) save for finding the perfect rug (any ideas?) and finishing two small 10x10 paintings (at her request) of some pink, turqouise and chocolate brown flowery fantasy things. Hmmmm... something to think about! Photos to come of it next week. Off to watch the world cup... (and a swim) Let's go Germany!

The word for today is ... JOY! ... of everyone home again, a sunny Saturday and welcome home hugs and kisses...

If I could only do that with sand.

LOVE the mermaid sand sculpture and the wall art is very cool. I would love the three flower one in my daughters "fairy" themed room. Can't wait to see your room redo!

We have an amazing sand castle competition here each year, too. Thanks for sharing. Don't you hate that they have to disappear? The artists are brave people.

I'm in awe of anyone who can make such sculptures out of sand. These just blow me away.
