Job to do
This penguin is off on a mission, but I’m not sure what he’s got to do. Sorry about the dark photo, but if you zoom in, you might be able to make out the tiny shovel, like a garden trowel, in its left wing. Then there’s that little pot by his right foot. Whatever he’s up to — cutting a Christmas tree? tapping a maple? — he’s ready for cold weather with a fantastic looking knit hat. The hat is ceramic, like the rest of the ornament, not yarn.
