Glitters VI

Today I have my tiny collection of turquoise and teal glitters. How come there are so few? I have no idea. Judging from my personality alone, there should be hundreds. Sadly I only have four. If you have any favourites you think I should be getting, please let me know in the comments section!

H&M Turquise Kitty, Nubar Moodies Caribbean Blue to Mellow Turquoise, China Glaze Atlantis, BB Couture Mendocino Midnight.

Swedish word of the morning:
akleja -noun columbine, Aquilegia vulgaris
Because I have a very cute little bouquet in front of me right now!

And just for the heck of it, here's the Swedish choral classic Uti Vår Hage. It's originally a folkloristic song from Gotland, but is widespread across the entire country. It's usually sung in the spring time, when school is finished for the semester, and at the celebrations of Walpurgis Night and Midsummer. And yes, back when I was in music school, I sang this song a lot. A lot. Really.

The columbine flower, among with other typical Swedish summer flowers, are mentioned in the lyrics, which are really about love.

Out in our fields
Where bluberries grow
Come heart's joy

If you want me anything
We'll meet there

Come lilies and columbine
come roses and sage
come sweet mint
come heart's joy
