  1. ROFL ! Where DO you find these Kyria? I’ve never seen any of these naughty charms before – but I’ve led a very sheltered life !

    I recently had a very good surprise (for me, living in France, where charms are quite unknown !!
    On January 6 we have a feast for the “3 Wise men”, and use to eat a “galette des Rois” (twelfth-night cake), a girdle-cake with a tiny “surprise” in it … well … a famous “Chef” in Paris created a galette with tiny enameled charms in it, a serie of 6 to win !!!
    All girls in Paris ran for it !!!
    good idea, no ????

  3. ok now I need the receipe for the cake- I have a set of english pudding charms – are they like the ones in the french galette des rois?
    in New Orleans for Mardi Gras they do a king’s cake with a baby charm in it- whoever gets the piece with the baby is the king or queen of the party.
