Notice anything different?

Need a closer look?

He hey, look what arrived for me?!

Now isn't that a sign of beauty?

Remember when I put out a rather pathetic plea for one of these tins that I couldn't possibly live without? Well the wonderful Ann answered my plea and in no time at all this truly delicious tin has made it's way from a Finnish supermarket into my kitchen. Doesn't it look right at home?

What's more, Ann sent me a set of postcards depicting her fab fabric designs. Go check out her website and if like me, you don't understand a word of Finnish, you'll enjoy looking at all her stunning photos.


(Thank you all for your well-wishes. I am feeling great at the moment, but warily lift my head from the pillow each morning wondering what awaits)

Oh wow! I'm very jealous. How did you find out about the tins? I love scandinavian designs so much.

The kitchen has just been resounding with my burst of laughter as I read through that! I was going 'What IS different? Has changed the...? No. Or is it the...? NO.' (scroll scroll) Oh Riiiiight!

Sorry I am mental today. I think the nurse took too much blood this morning.

Nice tin btw.

What a gorgeous tin!! All the way from a Finnish supermarket?... how lovely is that? Her designs are fabulous too - thanks for the link. Glad to hear you're feeling better (sympathy on the no school front!) When we left London on Friday they said the thaw was beginning... I wish you a Happy New Year and an early Spring :) K
