One of my most frequently opened cupboards is this one – where a whole shelf is set aside for TEA… I always buy loose leaf tea, and mostly in mixed blends with fancy names. Just imagine, on a grey and cold November day, stepping into your favourite cosy little teashop in town, asking for half a pound of Euphoria… (Puts one in a good mood just to say it!)
And in the blue bag, there is a Castle Blend, that I bought back in the summer at a visit to Läckö Castle. Which reminds me that I still have holiday photos from July left unblogged. I will get back to those some day, but until I do – here is one:
Just now, however, it’s tea time; and here is my favourite small teapot, and a recent addition to my collection of tea mugs. I got one in this series (Moomin by Arabia) for my birthday; and when more recently I happened to see that a shop in town had more in that series on sale, I could not resist the temptation of buying two more…
Little My, the Moomin House (with several of the characters appearing in the windows and outside), and The Muddler.
I have loved the Moomins ever since childhood. First got to know them as picture books and comic strips, later also read the novels. And they’re the kind I still like to return to every now and then.
If you like the Moomins, and enjoy playful personality tests, you might want to try this one: Which Moomin character are you?
I got Moominmamma, and I guess that’s not too far off the mark. For one thing, I do tend to always carry a handbag full of “just in case” stuff…
See? Opening a cupboard door can lead you anywhere. No wonder that some days I seem to get nothing done!
