need translation of german pillow

A while back I bought a bunch of old photographs on ebay. One of my favorite photos has a pillow with an embroidered message on the pillow. I ran it through freetranslation.com and it couldn’t translate the first word. “susse hermat” is “here rent”. The “u” in “stebenburgen” and “susse” are umlauts.

I dig the photo cuz the guy looks like someone from the German mafia. He’s cracking his knuckles getting ready to fill some concrete shoes. The wallpaper is classic 1950s.

I think the first two words are definitely Siebenburgen and susse but I can’t determine what that last word is. It’s not hermat though, because that third letter is an i not an r. It matches the i in Siebenburgen. And I’m not entirely sure the first letter in that word is an h.

Regardless… the best translation I could find is “Transylvania sweetens ???”

That last word could be a family name or something like that which explains why it doesn’t appear in the translator software based on any of the different letter variations I tried.

I agree. I think it’s someone’s name.
