Keep calm and have a cookie

Cookie is a cookie, right, just a happy extra with a good cup of tea? Sure, but when the cookies come in a pretty tin like this: 


...and shaped like these:


They can be a tad more than just cookies!


My dear sister found me (and her) these happy Moomin-cookies last weekend, and I must admit the bottom of the jar almost shows already. And when ones tea breaks look like this:


...one can't help sewing these:


I know. Cookie is so much more than a cookie sometimes!

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Yours,
Mia

Hello Robin,

I am so happy for that tin, once it's empty (read:now) I can put in other cookies, but smile still when I use it!

Wishing you a lovely weekend!

Yours,
Mia

Hello Anne,

It is a great find, I know! There are quite a lot Tove100-items, but this is one I really like and see me using it for a long time!

Have a lovely Saturday!

Hello Teje,

Happy Sunday-greetings from sunny koto-Suomi!

Hello Helen,

Thank you! Those moomin-cookies are too cute (not TOO cute to eat though!) and make me smile!

Have a happy and creative new week soon!

Yours,

Hello Megumi,

Japan must be a moomin-wonderland, it seems that there are so many fans! I am amazed that US doesn't offer that many things - there should be many, many happy things available there for you!

Have a lovely Sunday!

Yours,
Mia

Love your little sewing pouches and moomin cookie tin. Cookies are so cute and look as if they melt in the mouth, no wonder you can see the bottom of the tin - time for a refill! Love Pat x

Mia said...

Hello Pat,

Thank you! I can now proudly say ;) that the tin is now officially empty (and I will definitely refill soon)!

I wish it is sunny and pretty at yours, it's been warm (well hot) here, but now it seems to be storming... Happy May!

Yours,
Mia

Hello Mia, the title did make me laugh! How cute and so perfect for you are those cookies? And the beautiful 'matching' pouches are equally fab! Bethxx

Mia said...

Hello Beth,

Thank you, I am pretty proud of the title myself even I am sure there are posters with it all over but once I managed to hit the right one for the text at least :)

Wishing you the loveliest May days!

Yours,
Mia

This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
