If you are of a similar vintage as myself then a Happy Apple may have been a feature of your childhood. These are gold, so bright & cheery, they roll around & make a beautiful sound. My mum kept ours, but due to an unfortunate incident with a heater it is rather disfigured & my half-hearted hunt for a replacement was unsuccessful.
So while this apple is very special, the way in which it came into my possession is the really special part. This apple was a Christmas gift from a friend, as soon as I heard the sound inside the package I knew just what it was. The thing that makes this gift so very special is that I know she loved this apple & would have been sad to part with it. This may be one of the most lovely gifts that I have ever been given, very special.
