Sunday Stamps - the northern hemisphere

I always think of cold and ice when I think of north.

Carina sent me a great little booklet in the form of a tiny letter which arrived in this envelope with a superb cold stamp.

Ice fishing from Finland! And of course, in true Posti style, the bottom half of the stamp has a special shape. The stamp celebrates 'Everyman's Rights' to enjoy nature. It is from a set of 6 celebrating this theme in 2016, the 100th anniversary of Finland's independence.

You can see the other stamps here at Posti, the Finnish post office.

    1. I definitely don't get the fun in sitting around a hole in the ice, freezing your behind off.

  2. I received the same Everyman's Right stamp last month. I really like Posti's fashion of having special shape in one edge of the stamp. I also shared Finnish stamps but for the week dedicated to the eastern hemisphere.
