Enter the Tomten... one of our favorite characters and a favorite winter read. Ok, so the tomten is a landlubber who protects farms and big houses, minor technicality. In our collective imaginations he's a salty bloke who protects boats and kids who live on them.
(This particular Tomten was made by Anne Moze and the fox is from Jalu Toys. There are lovely little tomtens all over etsy or you can make your own like we did below.)
Our tribe of tomtens hang around in winter and help give us ideas on how to fill our cold, cooped up days.
(I have been told that the Tomten needs to improve his penmanship)
We're glad they're all here. And we're glad they speak to us in their tomten language, a silent little language that boat dwellers know.
p.s. Don't forget to enter the MamaRoots giveaway - you have until Friday morning.
