Finland: Carrot | Sunday Stamps

Finland Postage Stamp: Carrot

I received this fun stamp yesterday. It's not a rabbit, but it's rabbit food! I tried to find some information about the stamp itself. Although I was unable to, I did find this list of carrot trivia from the virtual World Carrot Museum.

I wonder if the USPS will ever issue shaped stamps; I've seen them from Finland, as in this example, and I believe also from Singapore.

Head over to Sunday Stamps on Viridian's Postcard Blog for more interesting stamps associated with the Chinese New Year.

A recent card I received from Finland has the same yellow top with a picture of a pumpkin on the bottom. And it looks like there are amall stickers added to make a face on the pumpkin and a hand holding a bunch of flowers.

Now I know a whole lot more about carrots! Cute stamp, Postcardy is spot on with the info. Finland have issued more cute shaped stamps this month as well. See them on one of my favourite sites http://www.topoftheworld.nu where I drool over stamps from the Nordic countries.

Great post! I don't think I've ever had the fortune of running across a die cut stamp.
