Hyvää joulua!




My first Christmas card of the season turned out to be a stamp card from Finland showing the 1987 issue while on the reverse were the latest irregular shaped ones.  They are of a very traditional style apart from being cut to shape.


Also from Finland came a shaped Moomin stamp accompanied by a shaped Moomin air mail sticker





Then three larger-than-normal issues, one goes without saying - the Postcrossing issue, and the other two are paintings by the Finnish artist Eero Järnefelt: Burning the Brushwood and Forest Landscape.

  2. Oh, I love that stamp that is cut to shape - very cute! I wonder if it confused any machines?

  3. I think whatever design Finland chooses for stamps, they look great, traditional or modern.

  4. How large are the three larger-than-usual stamps? The Forest landscape painting - I first thought it to be a photo - is beautiful!
    And the Moomin and postcrossing stamp, great, too! Thank you for sharing!
