Small wonders

A running theme at Käthe Wohlfahrt seemed to be tiny ornaments. This came in handy, as you’ll find out later, when it came time to pack for the trip home from Prague. All of these little penguins were on display throughout the store and organized by style in baskets and pigeonholes. I had to check each room to be sure I had all the penguins. I even overdid it and wound up with a couple of tiny figurines that turned out not to be ornaments. Oh, well, they make a nice accent on the breakfast counter.
