I'm so glad you posted this! I live in Escondido and this is such a cool place to visit. It has been super hot here...yuck!!


This is awesome. What an amazing feat of creativity!


I lived there for two years and had no idea. RATS~! Thanks for sharing. FYI- yep, one weekend a year it will get REAL hot near the End of August/Early Sept. The locals go mad without their million dollar 70-degree weather, hehe. Although Esc. gets 10 to 15 degrees hotter than the coast.

Yes...I have been doing mosaics lately and have been wanting to do a 3D dog sculpture. I found a book by Sherri Warner Hunter called "Creative Concrete Ornaments for the Garden" and I have to say it is one of the most informative books I have found in a long time. She shares all of the technical info you need to make mosaics like these...I bought it on Amazon used for like $15.00. Great book. Thanks for sharing these...very inspiring!
