Winter Solstice

"Le Soleil a rendez-vous avec la Lune/Happy solstice"

This is my new Spirit Doll, that has arrived in her new home today. She's called "Le Soleil a rendez-vous avec la Lune/Happy solstice".

"Le Soleil a rendez-vous avec la Lune" is a famous song by Charles Trenet which you hear here (hear, hear). While stitching and beading, many songs came to me.

A classic French nursery song :

Bonsoir madame la Lune Good evening Mrs Moon
Que faites-vous donc là ? What are you doing now ?
J'fais mûrir des prunes I am ripening plums
Pour tous ces enfants-là. For all these little children
Bonjour monsieur le Soleil Good morning Mr sun
Que faites-vous donc là ? What are you doing now ?
J'fais mûrir des groseilles I am ripening redcurrants
Pour tous ces enfants-là. For all these little children

A Bruce springsteen interpretation of a Martin Luther King text, We Shall Overcome.

Music from the film Devdas. Not my favourite Bollywood film (I hate sad endings) but great music and great singers.

The person who received this gift seemed very pleased.
