Finnish funny vegetable stamps

Finnish stamp

I have fallen in love with Finland because of its mail enthusiasm. So many Finnish postcrossers, great love of and dedication to mail there... am I generalizing? Probably, but one cannot deny that Finland releases some incredibly cool stamps! This one came from the Funny vegetable series, a set of blank vegetable stamps that comes with little face stickers to be attached separately, so you can make faces on your stamps. What a sense of humor! I was delighted to see this one in my mailbox, on an envelope from a postcrosser. (Please forgive the little red wine stain there. I am dangerous around my own mail.)

  1. These are really cool! The Finnish post office (the link above) lets you order on-line AND they will ship overseas! €6 (6 €1 stamps + a sheet with a generous assortment of eyes, noses, etc ...).

    I want! Though my wide says she'll get me a Mr. PotatoHead instead.

  3. That is very cool! Our post office should take some ideas from Finland.

  4. Oh, this is fun to see! The Royal Mail produced a similar series about 7 years ago and I couldn't get enough of them, they decorated everything that went out!
