Dreaming of the Riviera

"Snorkmaiden, what are you doing?"

"Oh, just trying on these beautiful pearls I got on Riviera, do you still remember our trip?"

"Sure. I think that lovely lady Tove made a scrap-book* or something from our travels... Here it is!"

"We had fantastic time, do you remember that bikini you bought, and there are those pearls too... What? Mamma, did you say something?"

"Oh yes, dear! There is a moving coming out soon of our time on Riviera. Sniff saw the ad on someone's instagram while searching this autumn's latest bling-trends, and I just read about in this newspaper too!"

"A movie? Whaaat? Our travels? Starring us? Snorkmaiden, did you hear that? Snorkmaiden...?!"



Moomins on the Riviera-movie opening on theaters here in Finland 10.10.2014 - see all the lovely details (and maybe your hometown too?) here - and here is the official trailer! Check it out, smiles guaranteed!

Sweet dreams, everyone!

Hello Teje,

I would love to make much more of these little stories, I just need to fix a good light box for picture taking - it get so dark here so early already...autumn... Not loving it!

Wishing you sunny days!


Mia said...

Wishing you beautiful autumn days!

Hello Jane,

It will be a treat, I am sure!

Wishing you some beautiful October days!


Mia said...

Hello Robin,

We all here are so familiar with the Moomins (basically grew up surrounded), and I am doing my best sharing the happiness :)

Wishing you the most wonderful autumn days, and happy sewing (as seen in intagram!)!

Oh the trailer was good! Hope you enjoy and let us know how it was. I hope I can watch online sometime - not sure if it's going to be since Moomins are not recognized in US... we will see.

Mia said...

Hello Helen,

Oh I wish that too! Hopefully the movie gets around yours at least :)

Wishing you a lovely October!


Mia said...

Hello Megumi,

I am so happy you enjoyed the trailer! I wish the movie gets to as many countries as possible, I think it has been sold to 30 (Japan included!) or so countries already so fingers crossed :)

Happy autumn-days!


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...
