This is my favorite of the stories, too, Wendy. I think it's the equivalent of taking a cold shower.
That is so FUNNY! The coppersmith will dip his head in a bucket of water if the lass won't marry him? Well, I hope he shampoos his head while he's got his head in the bucket. Otherwise, it's probably a waste of time unless it's a very hot day and he wants to cool off.
You are welcome, Barb. Glad you are enjoying them.
Not only do we see your wonderful needle work but we get to follow the story line along with it. Thanks, Ardy, now heading to the next one. :-)
You are welcome, Josie. Now I need to work on the photography. I haven't had the camera very long and am not used it it yet. The bell pull really does hang straight!!!
You do beautiful work Ardy, thank you for sharing.
Dagmar, you must have been able to slip in a few Jigidi moments. So nice of you to spend a couple of them here. You are always so fast. Thanks for coming by. Glad you enjoyed the copper. I have bell choir rehearsal tonight so I shall enjoy the evening. May you have a good night..
You are welcome, Ank. Thanks for "starring" on the board.
A lovely kettle hanging from the sign and a funny story to go with it. Thanks fro letting us see your handicraft, Ardy. Thanks for an enjoyable time and see you tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of your evening. :))
Lovely Ardy (and Hanne) thanks
Jan, Glad to see you up there on the board. I think this is the funniest story of them all. It gives a new meaning to "go soak your head". Thanks for coming by. I gather it's not so easy from where you are.
Hanne, I wouldn't have had this much to offer if it hand't been for you. Thank YOU. Nice to see you on my board.
Actually, the story made me smile, so I liked it! (thanks, Hanne)
Another fun puzzle in this wonderful series. Thanks, Ardy!
The story is a little "thin" but it is a marvellous picture!! It must have been very interesting to make the colours in the coppar things!! Thanks so very much Ardy!!
Translation: The coppersmith, he is an iron (meaning an expert) when he understands his trade.
Explanation from Hanne9 aka Elfie: A funny and happy song with a fine refrain that everybody is able to join in. The very limited story is about this coppersmith doing his job happily and with lots of noise every day. But if a sweet little girl comes by and sends him some glances, he might try to make her his wife and marry her. If she will not, he'll just dip his head in his waterbucket, cool off and continue his work. It's from the beginning of the 19th century.
The whitish objects hanging from the top one are old-fashioned milk bottles.
