I’ve been having ‘one of those days’ for the past few weeks and just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse, I cut my finger on one of them sodding takeaway lids. On the positive side, I rarely have a chance to use these lovely Moomin bandaids, so it gave me an excuse to dress my finger with one.
Anything involving Moomins is a happy occasion for me and last week I received several lovely Moomin items but work got in the way so I haven’t had a chance to share them until now. I was rather annoyed when my colleague asked if I was still buying Moomins. What do you mean still?! I’m not even going to dignify that silly question with an answer.
Adding to my ever growing Arabia Moomin collection: the new Moominmamma and Moominpappa mugs and bowls. Both designs capture the essence of Mamma and Pappa — comforting and adventurous.
And I liked the new Summer 2014 limited edition (Sailing with Nibling & Too-Ticky) mug so much I decided to get two — one to use, and one to collect! Summer is all about sailing and adventures in the sun, and I just love all the bright colours.
Want your own? I procure all of my Moomin mugs from Artbox UK as they almost always have the best price for mugs. Unfortunately, they don’t carry the bowls yet but hopefully they will start adding limited edition sets to their list. I get my bowls from various shops, sometimes on eBay or whoever is offering the best price at the time. This time I got my Sailing with Nibling & Too-Ticky bowl from All Things Moomin, the official Moomin Shop.
