      I want to buy half the store! But my absolute favourite is the Ferm Living Tiny Train Wall Stickers, which Squeaky would love (and her granny, come to that.)

      I really like the glass birds by Penttinen. Cloudberry used to have some lovely Moomin bags too but I can only see the sale merchandise on the website at the moment.

      I also linked to this page from my Facebook profile.

      I follow Cloudberry Living on Facebook where I also have a page for my art and illustration “Witchmountain” I love all the Moomin stuff as I am inspired by all Tove Jansson’s writing. I’m enjoying your blog…just reading the bit about Laura Ingalls Wilder who, along with the Moominis help keep me cozy on long snowed-in evenings!

      Looove the Moomins! The original Tove Jansson ones, not the too-cute Japanese remake.

      As for Cloudberry Living, they have too many gorgeous things I would buy all the fab wooden Brio toys for the kids and for kitchen, Iittala tableware… one can only dream :)

      I love the Moomins and was literally just saying to Corinne over on the PaperTigers blog that I was sorry that I won’t be able to head over to Lancashire for the Moomins exhibition that’s on until the 15th –

      and lo and behold, I come here and there they are again :-)

      I love the Moomin mugs and I’ve been collecting them piece by piece (miraculously they are all still intact as well) Have FB commented about the new Moomin Puffin books too, not a lot to them but they are very pretty and for toddler age they are just right.

      Ah, I can’t even look at this site, as I have banned myself from shopping online in January, spent way too much before Christmas. I want all of those Moomin mugs, tumblers, cutlery, they are soooo adorable and cute. Moomins are dear to my heart since my early childhood.
      Fab cushions and poufs for kids on the site as well.

      Love all the moomin goodies, and the cushions but the patchwork poufs caught my eye as you don’t see them much these days and I was thinking the other day how one would be handy.
