|My package arrived!|
I called mom and told her I was on my way home and I had a bad day - she said something arrived that would cheer me up - and she was correct.
|My little dragons arrived!|

Early in January Sally said she had attempted to make dragons and they were in the kiln. I was waiting and waiting and waiting to see when she was going to list them - and finally the notification came on her Facebook page. I love dragons - I have been collecting them since I was in high school and one day I really want a tattoo of dragon.
I had my alarm set to make sure I was at my computer to get ready to buy some dragons. So, at 1:00pm Eastern - I was on the Etsy site (had Paypal up) and started buying dragons.
I don't think I had so much fun in a long time. The first one I bought was the little turquoise one in Sally's banner. I tried to purchase the red one, but he sold fast. I also tried to purchase the little black guy, but he was gone. So, I went to the next ones I really wanted - I am sure there are some very angry customers with me - because I grabbed my other two little guys and I saw they were in other people's carts. I was hitting that buy button like no one's business - and I got them. I think my heart was pounding more in those five minutes then the whole time I work out :)
So - here are my little treasures:
|The first one I bought - doesn't have a name yet - but he will|
|It is hard to tell - but there is blue going through the black.|
So much fun looking at all the details
|Isn't he adorable - I love that little heart!|
After looking them over and being amazed with the details I had to figure out where I wanted to place them because I want to see them every day.
I have a curio cabinet that used to be my grandparents that I have all my glass goodies. I found the perfect spot for them.
There are in perfect company with my two Luccio Bubbaco pieces and my Emilio Santini pieces. I also have some other glass pieces from local artists.
I am overjoyed with my little dragons and my lost girls from Sally Sutherland. If you have not seen her work - you need to follow her on Facebook. If you want one of her lost girl beads you have to be very fast. Mom and I have a total of three of her lost girls (two of them I special ordered from Sally - one was for mom and the other was for me and the third one I was on Etsy so fast my head spun so I could buy her).
Check Sally out - you won't be disappointed!
