When he had broken up this scenery, weary of its tinsel, there would come to his mind the bright picture of Marseille, of sunny trellises, and of Mercedes.
Когда он разорял это сооружение, утомившись его мишурным блеском, перед ним вставало яркое видение Марселя, залитая солнцем садовая ограда и Мерседес.

Not with stones or tinsel. The material shone.
И это были не блестки и не нити, блестела сама ткань.

Ring Around the Sun
Simak, Clifford D.
Her long little face sparkles all over, as if sprinkled with tinsel, and then a slow twirl of the Sunfish places their heads in the narrow clammy band of shadow the hull casts.
Ее маленькое вытянутое личико все искрится, будто присыпанное блестками; потом лодку начинает медленно разворачивать и головы их попадают в узкую полосу холодной тени от корпуса.

And in the air outside, like the fluttering tinsel above a used-car lot, birds of many makes are calling to each other to wrap up the day.
И в воздухе за окном, точно разноцветные флажки, трепыхающиеся на ветру над загоном для подержанных машин, птицы всех мастей и калибров рассыпают свои трели, совершая обряд завершения дня.

He then unrolls the ball of tinsel, placing it carefully around the rectangle of his sign. He snips off the extra and staples the shiny stuff firmly into place.
Тогда он разматывает канитель, аккуратно накладывает ее по краям картонки, отрезает лишнее и крепко пришпиливает сверкающее серебро к картону.

With a foolish smile, making inarticulate caressing grunts, he held out to her a gingerbread cock with gold tinsel on his tail and wings.
Глупо смеясь и ласково мыча, протягивал он ей пряничного петушка, с сусальным золотом на хвосте и крыльях.
