I have grand plans to one day learn to crochet and/or knit.
So far that has not happened, but it doesn’t stop me from looking at patterns.
For you crafty people, here is a link to a wonderful Dragon by Crafty Intentions
You can find this pattern and many more on the Ravelry website.

I found a fun dragon ornament on Amazon recently and thought it needed a place on my tree. 🙂
Todays Dragon Thursday combines two of my favorite things, dragons and coffee. The artist is Amy Brown. She produces beautiful, whimsical fantasy art. I found her Official Etsy shop, but she also has several other places where you can admire and buy her art. I found the easiest way is to go to this website and navigate from there.

Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating.
This weeks Dragon Thursday features creatures that would definitely not show up at our Thanksgiving dinner. They might see us as dinner.
The first is by an artist on DeviantArt named JadeRavenwing
Up next is one by an artist called CapnShortstack, also on DeviantArt.
Gooble, gobble. 😉
In my quest for dragons, I found this unique dragon soap on Etsy, The shop is called The Charming Frog
This dragon soap comes in several color combinations and you can choose your scent from 39 different fragrances or choose unscented. Wow! They have several different dragon soaps to choose from.
These are amazing.
They also carry designs for all occasions and seasons. They make beautiful soaps, lip balms and melts. Please take a moment and visit their shop. So many wonderful designs. There is something for everyone. It’s soap as art. Enjoy.
I found these wonderful garden dragons on a website called emilySculpts.com.
She calls these Arbori sculptures, and they are made to hold live plants.

There are many styles and colors of planters , but I was drawn to the green ones. These are wonderful. I grow succulents and these would be perfect for some of the baby plants.
This week I found a fun Dragon project on Pixie Hill, a blog by Nichola Battilana: Maker of Messes, Believer in Faeries
The project is called A Rotten Smelly Dragon Jar Tutorial
There are notes in the blog post for making the Rotten Smelly Dragon Jar and a link to Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts where you can purchase the laser cut dragons.
I also enjoyed the Youtube video she has showing how to make the jars.
Be sure to look around her blog and visit her Etsy store : PixieHillStudio.
It is the last Dragon Thursday before Halloween. I decided to go with dragon masks. Although they never look as good on me as they do in the photos, I love them. I have a blue dragon mask. It is a little worn in places and now stays on the lamp shade by my bed.
I can’t remember where I bought it, but it was ordered from an Etsy store several years ago. In my search this year, I found several Etsy stores that carry dragon masks.
One is named Squirrel Creek Creations, LLC
From their stores description: They make Unique Leather Masks, Armor, Costumes and Accessories.
red and gold leather dragon mask.
They also have one described as Icy blue and White, leather dragon mask.
Another unusual leather mask is one from MaskEra on Etsy.
Ryu, Asian Dragon – Handmade Leather Mask
And last is this lovely, unusual mask from MeriMask described as an
Eastern Frilled Dragon Leather Mask.
I have a dear friend that lives just outside of Melbourne, Australia. She surprised me with a package containing this amazing dragon roof tile. ( Thank you!) She found it on Ebay a few years ago. I do not have the paperwork for the company selling it and have not seen another like it. I love the colors!

The nights are getting a little cooler for us in the Northern Hemisphere. We start checking our heating systems and some will be getting their fireplaces ready too. If you are lucky enough to have a fireplace , you may want to consider adding a guardian dragon chimney pot from Chimney Pot .com
This is one from a special order and Home Renovation contest

Also , a Google search for Dragon Chimney pots turns up a lot of great ideas.
