Especially unexpected good mail, like I received yesterday morning from Kikka N:
I was strong and waited until I got to work to open it
(then immediately facebooked the above image to taunt my Editor, who is a Moomin fan...)
I'd planned to do a gradual photographic reveal for you but got too excited and took the box down to open over coffee with a colleague, completely forgetting to take my camera.
First out of the box was a kitset.... something.Which turned out to be a miniature Aalto 900 trolley kit, with instructions in Finnish (kindly translated into English by Kikka).
Next were two Marimekko books, made by Kikka, and a pair of red reading glasses to match my full-sized ones.
Then there was a bottle of Dior perfume (also make by Kikka) and an Aalto vase.
Finally, there was a bag of fabric pieces, which you can see in the background of my photos.
Thank you Kikka, for a wonderful box of unexpected delights!
(And now I have an empty box which I might just have to fill and post onwards...)
