I have received the most amazing parcel of Moomin goodies from Butweed. I'm in awe of everything - it's all so well made and so incredibly unique!

The first items I unwrapped were these...



A Moomin knife and fork!!! Literally amazing...I love them Smiley And then....to go with the knife and fork...



The cutest Moomin plate, with my name on it! Here's a closeup...



Then we have one of the most beautiful craft items I've ever received...a lovely glass of Moomintroll and Snorkmaiden Smiley

Front...



Back...



Close-up...



Next (did I get spoilt or did I get spoilt?!) was the gorgeous stamp of Moomintroll on a cloud (from one of my favourite moments from a Moomin story). I love how thoughtful this is...



And then there was a gorgeous embroidered piece which is totally going on my embroidery wall asap!...



Can you believe it's Butweed's first attempt at embroidery?! And it's The Muskrat! I have a huge soft spot for the Muskrat Smiley



And last...some tasty Moomin treats (how cool!?)



Thank you so much for such amazing items and spoiling me so much!  Smiley

WOW! A moomin dining set! I especially like the knife and fork, what are thay made of? They look very design/ expensive. (BUT handmade makes them even better!)
I must revise my package to butweed though... as I was going to pick up them moomin sweets from the Finnish church. Not really original....... Undecided

Oh, to live in a land where I can just pick up Moomin anything, le sigh.

I love that knife and fork set, very, very sweet! Everything in that set is just grand.

I loved making things for this swap Cheesy i think Moomins are just addictive! if I hadnt of sent I would probably be making more things Embarrassed.

Im still not keen on the embroidery but its better than my second attempt for my granma's 87th.

Abbytail, Sweets are always welcome Grin (have munched my way through my secret stash)
I buy imported candy and snacks from an online shop. I wouldnt be able to find any Moomin sweets in any local shops.

The knife and fork are made from fimo and then painted with waterproof paint.
