it´s TINY HEART NECKLACE TIME again
.
those dashing valentines are my great-grandparents
(yes, she´s somehow holding up a fox fur stole)
they worked in a bookbinding shop
and climbed the Zugspitze wearing Lederhosen and a dirndl
later on her little bunches of garden flowers
became quite popular on the farmers market
.
i never met her, but i´m named after her
.
he told us the most exciting stories
about getting out of your nailed shoes on the Alps
when a storm comes up and hide them under a stone
so you wouldn´t get struck by lightning
.
and he taught us how to do ski gymnastics
way up to his nineties
neither of us has skied til now... we´re a quite disapointing bunch
