For whom the bell tolls
I love this little bell. The penguin’s dangling feet are the bell’s clappers and the cloisonné design is very elegant. I was desperately shopping for some graduation gifts when I found this, but couldn’t resist indulging myself. Later, I found enough graduation presents, but one of those grads almost got a penguin ornament. I’m glad I bought this penguin when I did. Tabwa, one of my regular stops when I’m shopping for penguins, was gone the next time I went back in November.
