arco

Vou fazer em tecido ou com material da Serra de Sintra (este será um arco saloio não Minhoto).

I am going to make an "arco" from fabric or material I gather in the mountains of Sintra.

adoro arcos

Ofereço às primeiras duas pessoas que estiverem interessadas e que me enviarem um email para asbravasarrobagmailpontocom um arco saloio. :)

I will send an arco to the first two people who send me an email and who are interested in having one ...asbravasatgmaildotcom.

Estou a brincar ao escrever «arco saloio». Os arcos que eu conheço são os minhotos. este vai ser «saloio» pois vai ser feito com materiais aqui da serra de Sintra.

Hi Mimi

An "arco" translated literally is an arch. The link goes to a picture of one I photographed in northern Portugal during festivities (mainly religious). I really am not sure of the origin of arcos (need to research this) but it really is a community event making one of these including men getting wook women and children gathering flowers and decorating and then throwing a big party afterwards....

( I just noticed I forgot to put in the arch part of my arco....:)

...it should read "men getting the wood" or lumber to build it.

where i live, many years ago, the poor people would make archs and take them to weddings, for the bride to pass through and then they would get money:)

Yes, that´s right... allways at weddings there is an arc at the table where the happy ones sit. Maybe that´s so everywhere, not unique for Sweden...

Mary, you will post pictures of the arcs you make won´t you? I wish to see it!!!!
