Last summer I found a lucky charm with a chimney sweep. Or maybe it found me. In the grass in a huge park. What are the odds? All my life I’ve been one of those people who run across the street to touch a chimney sweep. It may be due to their luck that I didn’t kill myself in the process.
So, I’m sharing some luck with you. Perhaps it works when you touch your screen? New Year, new luck; I am certainly ready. The last two years seem somewhat of a blur and I am determined to kick start this one.
Thank you so much for flying with be kitschig. For your encouragement, your likes and your comments. The blogosphere is like a second family.
May your year be prosperous, happy and healthy.

Touched the screen. We can use all the luck we can get 🙂
I’m sure it worked!
How cool is that?! Thank you! 🙂
Oh thank you! I really hope it works for you. Actaully, I have a different story to share but … ppssssstttt… my very personal chimney sweep and I wanted to take cool pictures first. He wanted a paddling boat swan … Maybe it will happen this decade …
I hope so! That would be fun!
Damn, my typing sucks 🙂
Wonderful, Thank you for allowing us to see it . Have touched the screen and wish you the best of everything not just for this year 🍀
Oh thank you Hun. There is no way in the world I’ll swap it for your plate
I thought so – and I understand!!!
Hey, if you ever wanna get rid off that plate, let me know!
Oops, there it was gone. The best of luck for you too!
I tried it. We’ll see what happens.😄
I am sure it worked. Who knows how the year would turn out without it 😉
Wow how random. That is so cool! 😊
I was so happy finding it! As a fun fact, instead of an engagemnt ring, I got a charm bracelett. You can never have enough lucky charms 🙂
I touched it. I held it down. I’m ready, no … more than ready, for a little good fortune. Thanks for your always thoughtful posts!
Thank you Bonnie for your kind words. Fingers crossed it worked!
I’ve never heard of touching a chimney sweep for good luck until now! Very cool!
In many European countries pleople believe chimney sweeps bring good luck. Some people even invite them to their weddings for extra luck! I was reading though people should touch a button when they see one, in Germany you touch the button of the chimney sweep itself. They are pretty used to people like me and always greet you with a proud smile 🙂
It was very interesting looking it up.
I’m not sure that’s how luck works but hey I touched the screen I’m not taking any chances.
Mmh, probably not. Then again, if you believe it enough … ?!?
I don’t I’m just not taking chances 🤣😂
Ha! What a great find! Maybe in corona times we aren’t allowed to touch the sweep per se? This might be a relief for my local one (haven’t seen him for a year or so actually) who, last time I was home to see him when he stopped by, gave me a shiney coinlike chimney sweep charm with a clover stamped on one side and the sweep on the other side. I tucked it in Mr. Kaffee Kante’s wallet, deep in the seam, so wherever he goes: may he have luck (shopping or showing his identification or whatever).
I touched the screen across the miles just in case. 🙂 I have heard about the lucky chimney sweep … I know I’ve never seen one though. Carry it around like a lucky rabbits foot (less icky). 🙂
Oh my … I actually have a golden coin in my purse a chimney sweep gave me 😅 I am totally capable of opening an umbrella inside and cool with black cats but chimney sweeps are something else!
You are doubly blessed with good fortune Jeanine! Consider yourself safe to walk under a ladder as well!
Now that would be plain stupid. I wouldn’t do that if you paid me 😉
And same to you! Blessings!
Thank you. Best of luck to you!
Blessings to you!
Lol. Sorry to send the same note twice. Meant this to post to another note. 🤦♀️😂 Now, you can just have double blessings! 🤣
Happy New Year and new luck! So cool you found a little bit of magic there!
I knew about the chimney sweep emblems/motifs used at weddings in UK as good luck charms. Thanks for the invite to touch the screen… I did 🙂
Oh Ford, I really hope it works wonders! You never gnome …
You never gnome, yes! 😃 Love it!
Wishing you much luck in 2022!
Thank you! Best of luck to you!
