Default Dragon Gate

One of my facebook friends shared a picture of this gate at Harlech House in Dublin. If we'd still been doing "Where in the World" I probably would have saved it for that, but I just couldn't resist sharing it here.

It would make a cool cuff bracelet or pendant. Is that what you're thinking? I would like a full size replica gate at the end of our driveway. Maybe in my next lifetime?!

If you google Harlech House, you can see a lot more pictures of it. Maybe one of them would be what you need?

Well, that and an artist who works in metal sculpture, plus the materials and money to build one for my driveway.

That is a really stunning home. Far out of my price range even if I was willing to uproot. That kitchen - words fail.

It is expensive, at least way more than we could afford. Have you looked at some of the other places for sale? It makes the price of this place look like pocket change!
