I have a Facebook account for family news and Windstone stuff, and there are days when I wonder about the Windstone part. However, I do like having access to information. 🙂
I know I miss out on a lot of posts from my nieces, but I just can’t turn over my privacy to that site.
This is my bottom line, too. Once FB has your data there’s no erasing it or removing it; your privacy is gone from the moment you sign up, and there’s nothing on the Internet that’s worth that (or worth condoning that policy) to me, however inconvenient. 🙁
(My workplace uses FB a lot, too, but so far I’ve managed to convince them that I’m Just Not Going To Do It. There’s one other coworker who also doesn’t have an account, so hopefully together we can keep resisting.)
Editing to add: Aaaand I forgot to type my actual comment, which was WOW, Silver Leaf looks incredible on the Spectral. The eyes really pick up the green and the reflective elements of the silver!
Interested in buying or trading for: GB Pebble Sitting Red Fox in grey, Lap Dragon Test Paints (Pearl Steel Blue, Opulence, Pastel Rainbow, others), production Lap Dragons with minor to moderate damage, and Griffins in Black Rainbow or Frosted Jade.July 26, 2020 at 8:31 pm #1624351
I do sort of wish that Windstone’s official site, or their mailing list, was the first place to get news about releases, instead of Facebook.

I know he’s supposed to be Siamese, but that Fledgling looks like a White dragon who made some mudpies with his friends! (Maybe that’s why the Brown Fledgling is brown…)

And if you choose the Susie option, don’t forget to wrap the peepers up so they can’t get squeezed out of the envelope en route!
Oh, yes! I folded a little piece of bubble wrap around mine, but you could probably just wrap them up in paper towel, too. (And I used a greeting card for mailing, since it’s sturdier than just an envelope. Great use for those freebie cards charities are always sending me!)July 19, 2020 at 9:24 pm #1623956
The forum had a large upgrade several years ago where all of our personal PM’s, galleries, and many more things were wiped from existence for a long time and that included the ebay galleries. Some threads even got wiped out but many were eventually restored although some have show their old school compatibility issues and glitches. You will see tiny font and then HUGE ENORMOUS font in places, but for the most part they’re readable. Susie always meant to put the galleries back in at some point but I think that task got thrown to the wayside after a while. She’s only one person after all. Artist galleries were eventually added but they were never really fully completed. Melody’s, Patricia’s and Brandi’s are probably the most complete. It’s possible the information or photos from before hand were lost in the upgrade and then combined with moving their physical locations from California to Oregon I think may have also contributed to the lack of old photos of pieces from Helen Mishkin, Jennifer Miller, and Olimpia Carpia.
Sometimes you strike lucky on a google search if you know what you’re looking for.
I thought it might have had something to do with the forum update!
Wonder if Windstone has a (text) list of past Ebay pieces… I’m sure I’m not the only forum member with a bunch of pictures lurking on their hard drive; if there was a list, we might be able to come up with pics for a lot of the list, to save some Windstone history!July 14, 2020 at 9:11 pm #1623540
What a great wolf pack, Bodine!
But it looks like there’s a changeling in the family… Or else the rebellious teenager has dyed his hair to annoy his parents! 🙂July 14, 2020 at 9:05 pm #1623539
It’s been a few months and I have made some purchases, so I’m revising my list!
1. Blue Morpho Female Griffin
2. Blue Morpho Hatching Emperor, or Scratching Dragon
3. GB Lady Cat in classic brown tabby – this is what my older kitty looks like, and I would love to have a little Windstone portrait of him!
4. GB Sitting Red Fox in a medium/dark pewter-grey
5. Old Warrior Dragon in Rainbow (preferably the version with a blue/green nose)July 14, 2020 at 8:40 pm #1623536
Congrats! What a great find.
And I know what you mean – a lot of the Old Green Emps seem to have way more purple shading than the other pieces in Old Green I’ve seen. It always looks so nice! I hope you will post pictures of your guy so we can all enjoy him vicariously. 🙂July 11, 2020 at 1:08 pm #1623272
I goofed and ordered a different color than I meant to for a PYO once, and I mailed them back to Susie with a self-addressed stamped envelope and a note saying which color I needed. She sent me the right eyes very quickly!July 7, 2020 at 8:13 pm #1623035
What a pretty Appy. Love the little touches of blue in her mane and tail; it’s such a nice accent color!July 5, 2020 at 11:58 am #1622902
All this talk of Labradorite pieces made me nostalgic, and I went browsing through the Ebay Gallery… so many pieces seem to be missing! Did Windstone lose their older photos during the move, maybe? Or did something else happen?July 1, 2020 at 8:28 pm #1622704
You’ve done a phenomenal job of all this, drag0nfeathers!
I hope a bunch of the missing pieces turn up in the second storage unit, or elsewhere. If the Silver Koi Kirin is the one I’m thinking of, I’ve been in love with him since Melody first posted him on Elfwood (man, talk about a blast from the past! I still miss that site) back in the day. I remember the Genet Griffins being very nice pieces, too, so it would be neat to see them! I’ll keep my fingers crossed that one more trove will turn up. 🙂June 25, 2020 at 4:08 pm #1622384
Hahahaha, I was just coming here to post a photo of that sticker, and ask… 🙂June 25, 2020 at 4:02 pm #1622383
The Secret Keeper looks like it’s wearing lipstick! 🙂
Love the striped Griffin chick and the pale Mother Coiled (is that one of the Silver Jade test pieces? Or another color?), and even the yellow-edged Male is oddly handsome!June 9, 2020 at 9:23 pm #1611743
LOL – the grails often do appear in bunches (or so it seems).
At the moment I’m waiting for a Rising Spectral in “Stone” and a white Chalice flion. Someplace on Facebook Melody said that they would produce Chalice as a white lion, so I’ve got my fingers crossed!
They definitely do! I can go two years without getting wind of one, and then three people will PM in the same month. 🙂
I am really hoping for a blue test paint Lap to come my way next! My “rainbow” is a little thin in the blue section, and there haven’t been any blue schemes coming up on Ebay so finding an older test paint is my only hope.
And also I just love blue Windstones, Production ones included, hence wishing for Blue Morpho griffins and OWS to be restocked! <3
