Default Dragons to Share for Christmas 2012

I thought it might be nice for the Holidays, if we shared some photos
of our favorite Dragons that we’ve all collected over the years because
of our love of Pern …and the wonderful world that Anne McCaffrey gave
us.

To start it all off…how about a *Dragon Christmas Tree*...



Every year I enjoy decorating a tree from Anne's stories...adding more and more things as I go along, this year I got to add two more *Space Santa's* to join with all the rest of the dragons, bears and Pern items,...Happy Holidays MoM

Now lets see what Dragons you have to share...

I have a gold dragon just like the one you have at the top on the shelf. Her name is Flitters. I got her at my first Dragoncon.

This is Dreamer


This is Lexith, I got him in Lexington.



Those are the ones I have pics. of I have others. Just no pictures.

Thanks Hans...you should know them...as well as recognizing several of the items on my little tree too.

Maw...Yours are very lovely dragons...the second one you show, I also have, only in blues instead of your greens. The little gold above the tree has a larger gold friend in the bookcase across the way from the tree.

I think I need to take some more photos of my Plush Dragon friends.

AnnMarie...I love the wedding topper...that is truely beautiful. The shelf of Dragons is wonderful...looks similar to one of mine.
I've seen that big beautiful green one before...and I've had my eye on him to add to my green wing too.

I have the big green one as well, from Build A Bear. I also have the black one on the end.

Some how my dragons keep finding their way to Kibby's bedroom. She claims not to know how they get there.

I don't remember how to post pictures, so a link to photobucket will do it:

This is a dragon pen and pen holder my son gave me. The "cat-ula and cat spoon" came from him and his girlfriend and she etched the glasses for us herself. Mine is Winnie The Pooh.

Here's my version, after Mawra telling me about Build-a-bears. The Highpoint store was awhile in bringing them in so I was happy last Christmas (2011) when they came in

I have the same one Jube has.

Priscilla, where did you get the "cat-ula and cat spoon"? Our kitchen is cat themed.

This is what the dragon I got for S.S. present

My son and his girlfriend bought it for me in a shop in Boston. I'll bet you could Google them. Let me see if I can find something.


Here's at least one company that seems to have them, though it says they are presently out of stock. You ought to be able to Google for more!
