OMIGOD!! Chocolates meet violins... life doesn't get more deliciously evocative than that. (Well, maybe some satin or lace or other things, but we won't go there in this mixed gender/age/tastes online community.)
What a FABULOUS gift! Are they those little Viennese "Mozartkugeln," with the pistachio marzipan and nut inside? Yum!
This is an excellent tutorial on what to get your violin teacher for that special occasion...;)
I bought the same violin in Austria and also this one:
I've gotten these before, and I keep all the boxes and use them as Christmas decorations.
Today, one of my adult students gave me three, count 'em, THREE bags of Ghirardelli Squares! Woo Hoo!
Admit you are all quite happy to teach violin hein??? : ) Every teacher will like you if you give chocolate so imagine in a violin box...
Terez, I think you've described the chocolates I got. They are sublime. Each one is a work of art.
Laurie, I love your suggestion for a gift for a violin teacher. Spread the word.
Bram, I'm not surprised that Austria has more than one kind of Mozart chocolates, or chocolates in two different kinds of boxes. It's part of their culture.
Anne, I like the box so much that I gave it a prominent, year-round place on my bookcase. Three bags of Ghirardelli squares is positively sinful. You must have a very good student.
Anne-Marie, you're right. Violin teachers love exotic chocolates.
that is SO great!!!!
Great idea! My teacher doesn't read this site so she'll never know I stole the idea. The next question is where to find them in Berkeley, CA.
