Am enchanted by the recent cartoons on at the cinema- coraline (although despite recurrent attempts I never made it to that particular movie), Up (Low expectations, but wonderful amimation and brillient storyline), and Ponyo (So innocent and wistful.. A twist on the traditional little mermaid storyline).
All were optimistic, and hopeful.
This tea cup is in a similar theme... from Sweden! A birthday gift from a beautiful friend who is similarly minded about mythical worlds and nostalgia.
Having said that, I'm looking forward to Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are. Although how he extends a 8 sentence picture book into a 1.5 hour movie remains to be seen..
