"Wonderful tiny creatures"

I could not be happier with these mini ornaments. The level of detail is great for such a small ornament. I purchased these to put in an advent calendar and they will be perfect. Thank you!

"My Husband Loves His Mobile!"

I bought the ceramic mobile Circling Hummingbirds for Fathers Day for my hubby. He absolutely LOVES it! We previously bought a hummingbird mobile from a local garden store and though it was nice, it was just OK, so we returned it. This mobile, however, covers all the bases! Its colorful and speaks to my husband in so many ways as he was a ceramicist himself for many years. Thank you, Jose, for your fine work and attention to detail!
