Keskiäkäinen tekee juhannustaikoja / Middle Morbid And Midsummer Magic


kä juhannustaika



Kirjani Keskiäkäisiä hajatelmia ilmestyi jo melkein viisi vuotta sitten. Uusia Keskiäkäiskuvia olen tehnyt epäsäännöllisen säännöllisesti, kortit ovat nähtävissä kotisivuillani. 

Juhannustaiat tulivat mieleen Runotorstain 332. haasteesta. Linkitän tämän myös Paint Party Friday-haasteeseen.

Kutiamatonta juhannusta!





The lady in the image is called Middle Morbid, she’s maybe middle aged, but her name tells more about the moods she’s usually in. I made of book of her almost five years ago, but have been drawing cards all these years about her wisdom and experiences of life. 

It’s Midsummer in Finland and midsummer magics are made. In one traditional magic an unmarried woman collects seven different flowers and places them under her pillow to dream of her future lover. So did Middle Morbid, but she didn’t know she was allergic to these wild flowers and got a terrible rash! The text in the card freely translated:


Midsummer magic under the pillow.
Damn this rash from the willow.

Eyes are swollen, turning red.
Running nose. Itching in the bed.

Magic worked, yes indeed!
Paramedic! Oh, so sweet!



Happy PPF and be careful when working on your spells!

    First of all, let me say your language is so pretty to see in writing, I love all the y’s, a’s and double letters. Your Middle Morbid sounds like a fun gal, and I had to smile when reading the poem. Funny!

      Thanks, Laila, Scandinavian languages have a lot of ä’s and ö’s, in Swedish also å’s.
      Glad that Middle Morbid made you smile!

    I am so happy you visited my blog. I have not been to yours before and I am finding it so delightful. I love your Middle Morbid character. Your drawing is funny and I wish I knew M. M. for real. She sounds like someone I would like.

      Thanks for dropping by, Faye, glad you liked Middle Morbid!! I believe there’s a little of Middle Morbid in everyone of us.

    I LOVE Middle Morbid! The cards look so cute I wish I could read Finnish!

    • susupetal said, on kesäkuu 21, 2014 at 10:23 am

      If I would have the energy, I’d like to translate those texts in English, Robin, maybe some day…wish…

    she is delightful… and mid winter here in Australia so we are all hunkered down… you will have to weave some spells for me…xx

      Midwinter in Australia sounds better than Midsummer in Finland, Tracey, we’ve been having pours of hail here!
