"All small beasts should have bows in their tails"

Happy Birthday, Tove Jansson, August 9th, 1914


  1. So sweet and beautiful.In my blog You can see many moomin figures that are based on Tove Jansson's books.

  2. found one of her books in the library years ago.
    a grandmother and her little grand daughter afraid to swim and the dad all at their summer cabin as I recall.
    it was wonderful in its simplicity and beauty.
    as is the little mouse person with the bow in her tail... looking as if she's wondering how it got there! xo♥

  3. I couldn't agree more - tails need bows! :)

  4. LOL I cant tell if she is surprised it is there or if she is checking to see if it is still there. I will choose she is checking because she is so proud of it she doesn't want to love it. LOL
