Fine Finnish stamps: Miau mail!


I received a Postcrossing postcard recently with these fine stamps - I had to take a video of the swan stamp to show off the metallic gold. It also included the adorable "miau mail" priority sticker, and a marvelous reindeer stamp, too.



Here's the front of the postcard, a lovely image of a Siberian cat. Thank you, Tiina, for this wonderful Postcrossing treat!

  1. I love the swan stamp - it might be my favorite Finnish stamp of all time. And the priority/airmail label is a lot of fun! Lucky you.

    1. Me too on the swan stamp as maybe a Finnish stamp favorite -and Finland releases some really amazing stamps so that's saying something. :-)

  2. That is a beautiful stamp!!! I like gold accents! I don't think I've ever seen that on a stamp before, although the USPS does have some interesting ones coming up with the heat sensitive ink solar eclipse ones!

    1. Yes! The total solar eclipse stamps came out last month and I bought them on the first day of release - I've been meaning to do a blog post about them also! They're great, hope to see more neat stuff like that from USPS in the future.
