frog tea light candle holder crafted from metal parts.

These metal cute critters are the product of the imagination and ingenuity of a Vietnamese engineer turned artisan. In his small, home-based business, salvaged metals are cleaned and crafted for your enjoyment. His designs are whimsical, and the prices practical.

Plus, you know the phrase "Reuse is even better than Recycling" --- here are some adorable examples.

Vietnamese traditions value the reuse of materials. There's a large second-hand market. For example, near post offices are vendors who take previously used cardboard boxes who will make a box for you of whatever size you need.

Is there someone on your gift list who is partial to any of these critters? Or do they like tea lights or need a pen or photo holder? These metal sculptures might just make a great "Happy Birthday" or "Thinking of You" present.
