Appreciate a Dragon Day
Being that I adore dragons (always have, well since I gave up on unicorns in the 4th grade) and thoroughly enjoyed Donita K. Paul’s Dragons series I thought I would share some of my favorite dragons for Appreciate a Dragon Day. (My two very favorites are in the bedroom where my hubby is asleep so…. they are sleeping dragons and we let sleeping dragons lie.)
First is the one I did when Cat mentioned feeling like a dragon the other day (and which you have already seen):
Then there is the wonderful antique dragon coffee set my in-laws bought us last January for our anniversary (which is next weekend).
Also in our home is the Guardian of the Futon: the dragon I bought for Issac for his birthday last year at IKEA and which migrated downstairs so often that he eventually became our futon guardian.
Another favorite who often gets overlooked (because he sits like a gargoyle atop the shelf in the office is the Guardian of the Video Games.
Below you will find my Bibliophile Dragon Horde painting (still unframed) above the awesome paper Chinese dragon Rachel made me.
And finally, because my favorite dragon shirt is in the summer clothes and because all my favorite dragon books (including The Enchanted Forest series, Here There Be Dragons, and “Max’s Dragon Shirt”, as well as the books mentioned above) are elsewhere, are two small dragons that keep me company at my desk:
And our favorite household dragon quote? “Dragon shirt” said Max.
Valerie Comer also has a post up for Appreciate a Dragon Day.
Wow, you have quite a collection! I love the idea of a Guardian of the Futon. I think my cats play that role at our house!
I wish I would have known it was dragon day. My daughter loves dragons. Draws them daily, reads about them, and writes her own. Love your drawings, I will be sure to show them to her.
