Millefiori penguin

1883

I saw this penguin in the window of a jewellers while out shopping one day. I couldn’t resist and bought it for Martin for Xmas. I think it is Venetian Murano Millefiori (meaning a thousand flowers) glass – or it is supposed to be! Sadly it is a bit unstable and falls easily!

Penguin light pulls

1785

These are some of my favourites of the collection. They were a gift from the lovely Lucy, and I think she got them in Texas. They are little things that hang off lights that you pull to turn the light on and off. I’m a little bit sad that we don’t have any lights that they could attach to!
