Moomin postcard from Finland, through Postcrossing. I've mentioned before that the Finns, given the size and population of their country, are by far the most well represented country on Postcrossing, and that many people, in their Postcrossing profiles and postcard requests, wish for Moomin postcards from them.
I was particularly excited to receive this postcard because I've been familiar with Moomin for a long time, way before my involvement with Postcrossing. My cousin, David, actually has what are probably first editions of Moomin books and and the figures/dolls that go with them from his childhood. I remember his reading (and perhaps his dad or mom's voice as well), in a particular tone of voice, about "Moomin, Mymble and Little My."
I hope he likes this postcard, as he reads my blog. (Hey, David & Nancy!)
I was also excited because my husband is 50% Finnish, which makes my kids of Finnish heritage. It seems like Moomin is something they should know about.
