One sunny Saturday Little My was set in charge of flowers...

and Hemulen, a highly appreciated botanist, was a bit hesitant about her choice!

In the meanwhile Pappa studied a very imporstant subject very carefully as he was preparing a special speech

while Moomin and Mamma decorated the cake she had baked earlier

and Sniff was choosing his best bling bling to wear in 

a special party!

Celebrating the life and art of Tove Jansson (9.8.1914 - 27.6.2001).

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...
