Oh what fun it is to ride
O.K., so the title doesn’t really match the ornament, but it’s Jingle Bell Week and I thought maybe the lyrics would help tie it all together. This jingle bell penguin might actually be suited up for a sleigh ride in his scarf and hat. They did a very nice job on the woven texture in the ceramic top half of the ornament. I found this penguin at a shop very close to where I live called Switzerland Old World Gifts. They have an amazing collection of beer steins, and enough clocks to drive you cuckoo.
