La Befana

Yesterday was very exciting here at the J&J home as we had a surprise parcel arrive from the lovely Michela.

Inside for T and S Michela had sent this wonderful La Befana. Remembering what I could from Michela's blog post last year and from Michela's card I told the children the story of this old witch who leaves sweets for children. Hidden under her skirts is a container which was full of sweets. They haven't all been eaten, just shared out fairly between the 2 of them!
Thank you Michela, I think you have started a new tradition for our family.

Michela very kindly included a couple of things for me too. This fabulous felted brooch which is sat on a huge kilt type saftey pin is going to go onto one of my handbags and this ring made up of little beads in the most pretty colours.

Thank you Michela. I love them both.
