We took the boys Turner (our tough-guy silky terrier) and Bruiser (our easy-going-big-cuddle-bear Golden Retriever and Chow mix) to the beach near Wheedon Island in St Pete, for fun.
Turner found the remains of a blue crab floating in the surf. After he had his fun I brought home the claw and the crab's back shell
And like Dr Frankenstein I put him back together again. I recreated his legs and body with clay and paper mache.
I found a beautiful cherry wood chest at an antique store and completely retreated it to look aged and wet. I was going for a found object from Davy Jones' locker. The project took 6 weeks, and it pleases me to no end. Davy Jones' Locker is available here
