Moomin House, Naantali, Finland photo via iden I didn't think a blue house could be so gorgeous and inviting in the winter.

Snufkin and Moomin, from Tove Jansson's Moomin  series.  I even named my cat Snufkin.

“But that’s how it is when you start wanting to have things. Now, I just look at them, and when I go away I carry them in my head. Then my hands are always free, because I don’t have to carry a suitcase.” –Snufkin

One needs friends, not things, to have a home.

"Somewhere under his hat the tune began to move, one part expectation, and two parts spring sadness, and for the rest just a colossal delight at being alone." Quote from Tove Jansson's story 'The Spring Tune,' found in "Tales from Moominvalley."

Tove Jansson. Moomin. Finland.

I cannot emphasize my love of Tove Jansson and the magnificent Moomintrolls. Finn Family Moomintroll is one of my favorite books and the entire Moomintroll series (and comics) are truly magical.
