Happy New Year! The Year of the Water Dragon

How thrilling!  Not only is it MY year on the Chinese New Year Lunar Calendar, but it is also the year of the Water Dragon - how lucky am I??

The Water Dragon occurs only once every 60 years on the Chinese lunar calendar,  and is expected to bring prosperity, luck and exciting transforming changes.   I am ready for whatever this year may bring!  How about you?

Now to add some traditional red and water elements into my coastal decorating to celebrate - and to encourage the good luck!

Red coral always makes me happy and it does have a beautiful organic shape. (reminiscent of a dragon!)

Hmm... and it does come from the sea....

Maybe a few new pillows to toss on my couch?

Could not resist this one - it's already on my bed!  Just a touch of red in my sea aqua room....

Or a beautiful red bowl for my ever-growing collection of seashells?  I like this one for the sea grass type of etching on the base.  Can you imagine this filled with bleached white shells?  I can, it would be so gorgeous!

Wishing you all a very Happy Chinese New Year!  Special wishes to my fellow dragons... you know who you are.

In past life I was a media dragon, but a water dragon sounds far more fun! Do we all get to take part?

How exciting for you! I think I was born in the year of the Ox. Not too exciting.
Love all the red pieces, that lamp is beautiful!

Relax and Live at the Beach Every Day of the Year!
