New Moomin Shop Decor!

The Moomin Shop in London’s Covent Garden have been planning their redecoration for a while, so when I visited in November I was terribly excited to see it in person. It’s so vibrant, full of life and you can definitely tell a lot of time and effort was put into making it so wonderful. There is a huge mural that fills the entire wall and even a postbox so you can leave your messages to Moominvalley. This post is very picture heavy but that’s the best way to show you how brilliant it is!

Moomins in Finland Part Two

This blog post will be dedicated to Moomin world (Muumimaailma). I went on Tuesday July 31st. It took two hours to get to Turku from Helsinki, so we opted for the early 8am train. The trains are lovely, they have free wifi and even a children’s play area. The prices are amazing too, being only 60€ for a return trip. When we arrived in Turku, we walked to the Holiday Inn where the Moomin bus departed from. This was only a ten minute walk and the bus was 12€ for a return. When we first got there, it was nearing 11am so I decided to go straight to the art gallery at Mannerheiminkatu 5 next to the Moomin Shop to see the new museum about Moominworld (but that is for another blog post).

My 25 Favourite Moomin Cakes

As a passionate Moomin lover and also cake baker, I thought that I would post a countdown of my favourite Moomin cakes that I have seen on the internet – and believe me, there are more than 25, so this was really hard for me!

25 – This was found on Vesselin väkerrykset‘s blog. I really love the Groke and I think this looked like great fun to make. Not many people like her because she is scary, but she just wants to be loved!

24 – The Moomin cake at the Bury art museum on October 24th 2010 for the Magical Moominvalley exhibition. It was simple yet beautiful. I stole one of the boats!

Presents & new knickers!

As expected, I got tons of Moomin products for Christmas. I chose most of them off Artbox in November because they were offering a 20% off discount code for one day, so Tomm spent £150 there. They have the 2011 limited edition bubbles mug so I had to get that before it shot up in price.
I basically chose all the things I always wanted to get but never had the money for because they weren’t necessities, and Artbox is my favourite place to get anything cute from.
