Sea Bird Chess Set with puffin pawns

I have recently learned to play chess and I love it! It is so much fun. So, what did I set out to find? A bird chess set and this is what I found…PUFFINS!!!!

What puffin-loving chess player couldn’t swoon at this lovely work of art? The individual pieces are well-crafted and beautiful. The King and Queen are penguins, the bishops are pelicans, the knights are seagulls, the rooks are hatchlings just breaking through their eggs and last but not least, the pawns are all adorable little puffins (one of my very favorite sea birds!).

This is going on my birthday wishlist for certain! You can get this Sea Bird Chess Set here. (Link updated 7/24/2015 per request)

Puffin Trinkets

I found Sharon McSwiney while I was perusing for puffin things. She made a beautiful oxidized silver puffin necklace pendant and a glazed ornament of sorts that is by far one of the cutest puffin trinkets I have ever seen. See for yourself…
