kids' flip flops, hawaiian lei, clear picture frame, and word beads. i was going to use the sand too, but decided not to.
the words say "wild about sun" and the kids are alex and robyn. they're playing in my backyard.
the word beads are attached to the picture frame on one side only and pulled tight behind the upright flip flop, so you can take them off and re-arrange the beads to say anything you want.
i forgot to take a picture of what inspired this. i live above one of those kitschy downtown shops, and there was a porcelain version of this. kind of ugly in my opinion, but it had potential. i like my version.
