Austrian & Finnish stamps

20 years Kunst Haus Wien commemorative stamp from Austria
The stamp is glittery, the first of its kind that I have so far. The Kunst Haus displays a unique Friedensreich Hundertwasser collection. The museum used to be a furniture factory transformed by the artist into his characteristic style of mosaics using glass, metal, bricks, wood, and ceramic in many colors.

Torronsuo from Finland's National Park Stamp Series
The Torronsuo National Park was established in 1990, covering 30 km in the province of Häme, south of Finland. It includes a mire that is considered the deepest in the country with up to 12-meter thick layer of peat.

I am linking up with Viridian for the Sunday Stamps. Visit her page today and next Sunday to learn more about European stamps.

  4. Hi lostforwords101!

    The mushroom ( is called fly agaric or fly Amanita and it is a poisonous fungus.

    Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment :)

  5. The two stamps form a nice contrast. The only glittery stamp I have by coincidence is from the country of your other stamp, Finland.

  6. Glittery stamps - interesting! The view in the Finland stamp is strangly atmospheric, if you know what I mean.
    thanks for participating.

  7. Great stamps, the Kunst Haus in Vienna looks a very interesting museum.

  8. I love the Hundertwasser stamp. It's a shame glitter never seems to scan very well.
