I never considered myself a huge Moomin fan. I mean, I read the books when I was small, but I never found myself romancing about them as a grown up. I usually prefer a good Willo the Wisp (preferably, Moog) or a nice Smurf. But when I saw this entry, on Loobilu's blog, I was like


And so, I went to Hapsitukka's wonderful little Etsy shop. Hapsitukka from Finland, sells items handmade of vintage Moomin fabric. It took me a while to decide, but I finally chose a Moomin pouch for my tiny laptop and a Moomin pillow cover for my bed. The package I received was a feast to the eyes, with amazingly wonderful Moomin stamps!

A friend from work, who collects stamps, tried all sorts of shenanigans to get his filthy hands on them, but all in vain. I would have gladly be satisfied with just these stamps, but no! The perfectly soft and lovely items I ordered arrived with a complimentary postcard and the sweetest piece of vintage Moomins in love fabric. Joy, I name thee Moomin.

And now, I'm off to bed but I shall leave you with a little Moomin clip I found. Ta ta dear readers, and sleep tight.
