On Monday, I ran through a local antique mall and quickly spotted a pair of solid brass "dragon-fish" andirons.  I was immediately drawn to them then started questioning my sanity and wondered if they were too much.  I am the first to admit that I'm very attracted to quirky things and sometimes have to stop myself from going too far.  I decided to sleep on it which is ironic because I had a terrible nights sleep thinking about the crazy dragon-fish. 


With design I've learned that if something feels right and bugs the crap out of you, go with your gut and get it.  You will hardly ever have regrets.   First thing Tuesday,  I popped back up to the mall and scored my dragon-fish andirons for an even better price than tagged.  After doing some research I discovered they are actually considered mythical dolphins and they seem to be quite pricey based on an identical set found on Ebay.  I think they look right at home in the living room. What do you think?



  1. Are you kidding....I LOVE THEM!! I would have bought them, too.

  2. Love these! Great find! I think they look just perfect there at the fireplace. I really need to try searching our local antique stores.

  3. Okay, that must mean I'm insane too. You know they bear a striking resemblance to my dolphin table!! Love the grotto look - much better than the ghetto look. I need to hit the malls you're hitting up! They look great in your fireplace!

  4. I agree with My Interior Life, they look great in your fp. I just found your blog and it's super fun!

  5. They are fabulous. I often walk away from something and if I forget about it, oh well, but if I can't stop thinking about it, I get it and I haven't gone wrong yet.


Thank you for taking the time to comment!! I love hearing from you!
