Tor-Ulf and the Tsintaosaurus


Some of my readers have asked me about Tor-Ulf. It’s been a while since he last made an appearance on my blog. He’s been living on a strict cupcakes only-diet, and it has had it consequences: torulf

He asked me if I think he looks fat.
I said yes.
He left.

I think he will be back sooner or later, but if you see a colorful lump flying over your house, leave me a message ;)

I’m actually looking forward to meet him again as I have some news for him. I bought this awesome book, and I found what can only be Tor-Ulf’s forefather!

TsintaosaurusIsn’t he a cute oddball? :D



Penguins and ink


Yesterday I found myself strolling around in a store with stationery in my hands, and before I could stop myself I had already paid for it! >__> Luckily it was not very expensive stuff, so I can now make envelopes out of metallic paper without a troubled conscience :DtigerCards, stickers and two kinds of pretty papers! The store I bought them in is called Tiger, and I don’t know if that’s a Swedish thing or if you can find it all over the globe, but they have some pretty fun and cheap stuff. It’s a dangerous place, be warned! I found a rubber formed as a rhino :O It’s awesome!  But since I rarely use pencils I couldn’t make up an excuse to buy it…

inkI also found a store that actually sells ink for fountain pens! A real store! With a door and windows and stuff! So I bought this gorgeous purple ink :)

kori och ericaAnd then I came home to mail! It was such a great day :D These pretty letters are form Erica in Finland (the orange one), and Korina in the US (the envelope in the front). Thank you ladies, I had some wonderful reading. I will reply as soon as possible!

torulfLastly I and Tor-Ulf would like to wish you all a very Happy Halloween!
(I told him that he looks ridiculous in that ghost outfit, but he thinks it’s the perfect disguise for him going trick or treating unnoticed… >__<)

Secret Mission


Incoming letter from Katrin in Germany. I love the Tea time stamp!


Super cute letter from Erica in Finland! This explosion of colours put a smile on my face.

till Katrin

My reply to Katrin’s letter. Yes, I was quick with this one! :) How do you like the ice hockey stamp? I am personally no big fan >__> Maybe because I am not into hockey. I think the cookie stamp is way prettier! (And yes, I am a big fan of cookies.)

till denise

Outgoing glassine letter to Denise.


Tor-Ulf is a little sad that no one seems to have missed him during the several weeks he was gone on a secret mission. But now he’s back and says hi to you all!



Today I got my inks! :D I was surprised to find that I ordered 3 colours. I thought I only bought 2, but no, apparently I couldn’t resist adding a third to my order. And apparently I shop too much since I can’t keep track of what I’m buying.(?)

inksI have no idea what brands of ink are good quality and which to stay away from, so I did as I do in most important choices in life;  just went for the prettiest :3

Here is a sample of Fernambuk:

inktryThe lighting in the room + my camera + your computer screen probably make this photo terribly inaccurate in colour rendering, so you’ll have to trust me when I say it’s a very pretty raspberry-ish red.

Other mailrelated stuff that happened today: I posted a handful of postcards, a letter and a package! I never thought the post workers would agree to let me send the monstrous package I put together, but they simply informed me that it would be (marginally) cheaper to send the objects in one of those ugly green sacks that the Swedish post provides us with. But that’s no way to send a birthday gift so I humbly  refused to change my mind :)
