In the last post I featured self-adhesive stamps from 2011, because Nyoro Nyoro was on one of them – but I like conventional gum with perforated edges far better and this is my best favourite set from the Moomin stories.  They live in severe Northern weather and the Moomin Troll family is hibernating during the winter.

It has snowed all day today here and we are surrounded by a White world.  We went for a walk, enjoyed to leave foot steps in powdery 4 inches of snow, but at the same time I am bored by this dull colour of sky and badly dreaming that the warm sunshine arrives soon, and Moomins are coming out from their house.
