Sparkling New Year!

In my opinion   SILVER  goes so well to New Year.
With these photos I’ll show you what happens to my house plants in a second.
This silver sprayed sedum was only a little while without its protective lantern
- and the traces of Sissi’s little teeth can clearly be seen :DDD

I don’t usually buy plants that are sprayed or artificially coloured,
but this sedum fits so well in its lantern home.

We have this great Finnish poet who writes her poems in Turku / Åbo dialect,
a city on the west coast of Finland - Heli Laaksonen.
I am not able to translate the dialect, but here a rough translation for you.
The original is hilarious indeed!

Take the cone out from the shoe.
Shed the water off the boots.
Lift the bucket from your eyes.
Drink the cup empty.
Be joyful, be bright, be cute.
Don't put your hand on a circular saw.
Don’t drop the ax on your feet.
Don’t forget the keys at home.
Don’t loose the hearts given to you.

Ot käpy pois kenkäst.
Kaar vesi pois saappaast.
Nost ämpär silmiltäs.
Jua kuppis tyhjäks.
Ol ilone, ol valone, ol pulune.
Älä lait kät sirkkeli.
Älä purot kirvest kintuil.
Älä unohr kotti avaimi.
Älä karot annetui syrämei.

Sissi certainly is joyful, bright cute ❤︎

Happy New Year to Everybody!

  6. ...Ritta, you do sparkly with a fare! This tune is GREAT, I haven't a clue what the words mean, but that does matter. It makes me feel like I'm in the hills of West Virginia. Thanks so much joining Foto Tunes, I hope that you will come back soon. Happy New Year.

    1. You are so right Tom! Online I read that this band takes influence from the American Country Music - and from Virginia!

  10. The silver sedum is very pretty. Will it continue to live all covered in paint or is it a short-term decoration? Wishing you and yours a most sparkly New Year!
