Emil very gently moved his coat aside and this is the wonderful treasure he revealed:
He had made it in an art lesson at school and he wanted us to have the bust now, because last year he gave us a present made out of clay as well, and it unfortunately had a bit broken off when we opened his present. Emil wouldn't risk that happening again - I totally agree! There's no need to risk such accidents by wrapping the bust for Christmas....
Now our gorgeous present is standing in our window-sill - it goes so well along with the clay flowerpots.
Every time I look out the window while sitting at the computer, my heart melts when my eyes meet the bust.....what a wonderful surprise.
