Dire Wolf for Birthday Week…

Okay, this was last April 26, oldest son’s birthday present. Commissioned this from my very talented friend at Sonofabeach for my son. My son is a huge Game of Thrones fan and wants a collection of the four main houses for his rec room (heads up for future orders, T!)

Below are the two he has so far. Fabulous, right? Thanks so much to T and his amazing artist wife. I also have three of the cutest seahorses that they’ve done. They can create just about anything you can dream up!

So today began birthday week in quarantine. It’s a little weird as we can’t go anywhere yet in Illinois, but we had a great take out dinner and chocolate chocolate chip bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes tonight as today was oldest’s birthday.

Tomorrow is mine and we may just take a cake break as I’m attempting a chocolate peanut butter cheesecake for youngest’s birthday on Wednesday. We were able to scrounge up a single birthday candle in order to sing, which at least kept us from having to use an extra Advent candle from last Christmas…

But, sing we did and even though life is just plain crazy this year, the celebration continues.

Mother of Dragons…


Nothing says Christmas like dragons, especially from Game of Thrones, right?  Well, it is red after all!

My very talented friend sonofabeach and his wife (she’s the artist, he’s the metal worker) create one of a kind artwork like this and I commissioned them to do this as a surprise for my son and his wife for Christmas.  If you are interested in having something made, you can go to his website and look around.  He’s also a very talented photographer and if you drop him a line in the comments section, he will get back to you quickly!

As you can see from the picture, my son already has some pint glass sets and they love the Game of Thrones show.  Those are bottle caps that form the scales on the dragon and they really do look like scales!  My son was so surprised and I know he will put it up in his rec room in the bar area, although it might make a pretty cool table covered in glass and with legs attached.  Just sayin’.


Last year, T and his wife made these adorable seahorses for my sunroom wall.  You can request colors or bottle cap brands and they will do their best to accommodate you!
