We went to a local supermarket last weekend, and besides getting some groceries I wanted to check the latest on Moomins. In 2014 it's been 100 years since their creator, Tove Jansson (1914 - 2001) was born, and to celebrate this special year there will be special mugs available. Oh my, there were and aren't they pretty! I have no picture of them yet as my mom has them until the March-birthdays, but the mugs be seen here and matching jars here and here. And all sold items will also donate euros to UNICEF, and with purchases your can also have a free Moomin-card(s) which I generously took as I know I have friends who would love to receive one.
When I got home I made a cup of tea, and started seeking a pretty pen. I found one eventually, but that made me think of a new set I
absolutely need think would be both cute&handy - a set of...
... matching coaster&pencil case!
With happy little birdies carrying love letters and enjoying a hot cuppa too!
If this set doesn't do the trick and get you writing a card or a long letter to a friend, I do not know what does. And as I've told earlier I love both sending and receiving real, handwritten letters, and courage every each of you to give it a try. And don't you worry, I had 25-something years gap between my previous penpals and these lovely ladies I keep writing today, and it's all going great. It's a bit like biking, once you... You know.
So Keep Calm, Have Some Tea and Write to a Friend, or send him/her a set to kindly remind that they could write to you! These sets can be found in my shop here.
