Natural wonder

It’s always fun to find any penguin ornament anywhere, but once in a while you find an extraordinary ornament in the most unexpected place. I was at the Museum of Natural History in New York with my niece Becky and our friends Steve and Ian Rogers. I thought I might find a simple little figurine in the gift shop that I could hang on the tree. Instead, they had this bead-and-sequin-covered beauty that looks like something that came from an upscale boutique.
