Go and Visit Finland

I want to go to Finland after my freind came back from there and showed me her pictures and let me share them with you. Now I have fantasies of  buying lots of Moonin Trolls to bring home for gifts. Helsinki, is  Finland’s capital and this is a good blog to find out things to do if you ever get there.

Moomins are famous in Finland. They are cool with great books written about them and you can find quirky gifts there, based on them to take home. Check out this blog. It will tell you more about them. The Moomins are happy and whimsical characters in a series of books and comic strips written by a Swedish-Finnish author, Tove Jansson. The Moomins are  a family of trolls, but far from being  scary they are: white and roundish, resemble hippopotamuses and cute.

I also like the cats in Finland.

I like their marriage attire and what their babies wear.

When You Get Bored Shopping in Ikea

Find a spot to snooze.

Try out their  new Spring range.

Relax on their beds or  sofas.

Go camping.

Do the washing up.

Or practice yoga by the Shanghai Ikea painted poppy wall, next to their  take-away meatball counter.

Cool Shanghai Pet Fashion

I found these pet beauties in Shanghai yesterday. I loved the pink collar and the mum was as cute as her dog too… but she didn’t want me to photograph her.

These cats were not dead and stuffed, just snoozing.

My neighbor’s dog with her new pink friend and dog and cat homes for sale.

Facebook buys Instagram: Waiting for Mr Right

I love Instagram for taking pictures on my iPhone. Check out this picture I took today in Shanghai of a sticky note I found stuck to a shop wall.  Maybe if you help to spread this post, we could help her find Mr Right.
