The days around here have been wonderfully sunny and
almost too hot. But I just got my beloved bicycle back home, it was been serviced (flat tyre, squeaky noise, loose brakes to mention a few things now taken care of), and oh boy have I been pedalling since! No matter how hot, I've been biking all over the town. And I also have been visiting a few thrifstores and fleamarkets around here. And what have I been rummaging there?
Well piles of old fabrics, naturally! And some gems I have found! One man's trash is another mans treasure* or how do they say? And these old bedsheets and pillowcases have been turned into bags...
And then some more bags...
...You see? The little green re-cycler in me is bursting with happiness, the big Moomin-lover-me is smiling wide, and my email box is full off happy messages from all over the world from those lovely people who now have their own Moomin-thing. Or two. Or more. More the merrier**! And talking about happy emails, I just got one while writing this post, with links to some pretty Moomin-tablewear, and message was "saw these - thought of you"! Thanks B, you made my day!
Wishing you a happy August 1st!
*&**My apologizes for using all these slogans and catchphrases, it seems that the heatwave here has melted all my usually highly original words. They'll be back eventually, cross your fingers and hope for the best. Oops, I did it again.
