I am nothing if not on brand so it seemed fitting that on the day I celebrate my birthday (though it was actually yesterday) I would share my dragon collection with you all. I know you have all been waiting for this.
Over the years I really grew a love for dragons in a way that I don’t think I can really bring under words. They are such a big part of fantasy and such large creatures. You can go so many ways with them. Fierce too. I love how different people draw and write dragons.
I started really collecting dragon things a good 2 years ago I think. I don’t go out and purchase the pricey bits and now that I have a healthy collection I am getting more picky with the statues I buy.
This is the one that started it all. There was a market a summer where I live where a stand was selling various statues. Including dragons. My eye fell on this cute one for 5 Euro. It was the first dragon I added to my house and it is still precious for that reason.
This is actually a bobbel head bt I love the lines and fierceness it has.
A cheap find. I really like how the dragon on top looks but I am really a fan of the orange rock thing. I think you can get music from it if you put in batteries but I am not bothering with that. It is in the back of the statues so that you see the dragon but not the orange rock.
This was just a really cute and soft dragon I came across for 50 cents.
I kind of like the look of these black-gray dragon statues. There is something so regal about that.
Of course there are dragon statues with fairies on top. This was a random find at a fairytale park we went to for Merijn. The places you can find dragons.
This one was so on brand I could not leave it. A dragon, a faerie and an open book.
This is the one I bought at Castlefest. There was a stand with a bunch of dragons but this one stood out to me. Look at that super cute face and it kind of leans down. So happy with this one.
And this is my last addition that was a gift from Liesbet from Zwartraafje ❤
You know those Ty plushies for kids? Yeah this is a dragon one I claimed as my own.
And this I found at Castlefest again. I couldn’t leave this dork.
Surprisingly I only have 3 dragon book marks, none I have bought myself. The above and the one down on the left were gifts. And the Asha one is the dutch bookmark that goes along with the first Iskari book by Kristin Ciccarelli and could be freely taken in book stores.
This Anne Stokes 3d print was a gift in my halloween swap from 2018. It hangs next to one of my book shelves.
This is a mini tin candle from Letters & Lights.
The Hungarian Horntail from Harry Potter.
One of the dragon funko’s from Game of Thrones.
I found this 2019/2020 diary when in Breda with Liesbet. It is so pretty I could not leave it. I am using it and when it is done I will keep it for that gorgeous cover.
