Mirjam Theresa of Æbleblomst posted pictures of her collection of Moomin-ware the other day and asked others to share. As it reminded me to put the dishes on the Christmas wishlist, I’m happy to oblige, though my collection is smaller and I don’t seem to have any she doesn’t. I do love them, though.
These have mostly been aquired through the simple means of donating blood, as it is customary here in Norway to get a “prize” for taking the trouble to donate and they’ve had the Moomin mugs as one of the choices for years.
