Fairy stamp letter from Finland

Fairy stamp letter from Finland

This amazing letter came to me from the amazing and artistic Sirpa. She posted about the Finnish Fairy stamps when they first came out, and I and another blog reader kvelled over them so effusively that she made us both mail art envelopes incorporating these lovely stamps. I love how she has continued the artwork beyond the stamps. This photo doesn't do them justice - the stamps each contain a little bit of glitter in them!

On the back of the envelope she used an image of the stamps from a post booklet.

What a magical treat!

  5. Wow, very beautiful. I wish I had even a fraction of Sirpa's artistic talent.
