My thimble collection owes its size to the internet. There's no way I could have got anywhere near the 300 plus that I have without the internet but even I know that, sometimes, you don't always get what you expected.
Take these little penquins for instance.
Cute aren't they? Really sweet. The description read large penguins. I assumed that it meant a thimble with a large picture of penguins so into my checkout basket it went.
As always when I get a new thimble through the post, I'm filled with excited glee. When I opened this one I was also totally gobsmacked...
It's not large - It's huge! I've photographed it with Goofy so that you can see the size difference. Goofy is the standard size. I wasn't expecting that. They are adorable though aren't they?
Bye for now
