over the moon

A little less talk and a lot more action.  That’s the kind of mentality that transforms daydreams into megalithic 3D sharks.  Where am I going with this? Well, thing is, there was a shark sighting in Minneapolis.

Not on the lake, mind you, but on the lawn of a pretty home in the suburbs.

Picasso famously declared that everything we can imagine is real.  Makes you wonder what people can imagine right?  And then, I suppose, everything gets pretty exciting when you bring all that creativity to life.
Incredible, right? Questions swirled through my mind as we toured the shark beginning with a) Why doesn’t everyone create massive ice sculptures? b) Will they please build a dolphin next?  c) Where can I find some hot chocolate?

A big thanks to Kinzie for helping me find the house:Image
Despite the cold, it was a gorgeous weekend in the Twin Cities – 40s and crisp and lovely.  So lovely, in fact, that I got caught up in it all and snapped this photo with my phone.  Can you find the moon?Image

Starlight and sharks and typing dogs and happiness.  I tried to sum of this post, but that’s all I got for ya.

Hope you have a happy Monday 🙂

  1. Definitely go with the tree house 😉 I got majorly hooked by a television show this past weekend called Treehouse Masters (shown on Animal Planet). Each client asks for their dream tree house to be built for whatever purpose they desire (writing retreat, Irish cottage, brewery, art studio). This idea SO resonated with me and now that you bring it to light in one of your posts is probably not coincidence 🙂

  2. That pool house! So cool! And who wouldn’t want a gigantic swing?! Also, that family that created that massive shark is friends with my husband and his family! They attended the same church, and I used to substitute teach for them at their school! Crazy, right?! Can’t wait to see what they create next year! 🙂

  3. The dedication to build that Shark is simply amazing! Kudos to the person who built it! I’m talking about dream living on the west coast on my blog today, so I hear you on this post! I’m in love of the first house in the middle of the lake- so serene I bet. Happy Monday to ya!

  4. That shark is amazing!! I wanted snow so badly this year, I think I jinxed it… Normally we have a couple big snowfalls in the winter, but this year we’ve had zero! 😦

  5. that shark is amazing!!! and its so big!! My fave house is obviously the one with the water slide and mansion… one a second note the one with the swing over the edge scares the crap out of me lol

Tell me something happy:
