Question Of The Day


Phoenix, Griffin, Pegasus, Medusa, sphinxes, fairies, vampires, mermaids, werewolves, unicorns...where does one begin? There are so many interesting ones to choose from.

But for me it would have to be dragons. I am very fascinated by them and have been for a very long time. I even have a few ceramic ones scattered around our home that I painted myself. And by far, my favourite is the one in the image below, which has been around since 2003. It has moved three times with us, twice to different cities, and has never – thankfully! – suffered any damage in the process. It is my largest piece and stands at about 31 inches tall.


Definitely dragons for me. Now how about you?

  3. Do I only get to pick one? If I just get one I think it would be mermaids.

    1. You can pick as many as you like :) But mermaids are really cool.

  4. That is a cool ceramic dragon! I think it would be fun to have fairies around. Flittering through the air would be neat to see!

    (not sure if flittering is a real word :)

  5. A President of the United States, as opposed to that whatchamacallit creature now pretending to be.

  8. I would have to say mermaids, I was fascinated by the Hans Christian Anderson tale, even if it ended sadly. It gave me a lot of thought as a child wondering how that would/could work. They can breathe on land and under water? Are they really half fish, and on and on. Then I saw the movie Splash twice when it first came out, with Daryl Hannah, she played a beautiful one. I love your dragon piece thanks for sharing.

  17. I'd choose unicorns. Dragons can be a bit bitey. And flamey. And steal-all-your-gold-and-sleep-on-it-ey.
