Last two weeks were very busy

Hey and best wishes from Finland! :) We have a lovely sunny day here today. I woke up at 5:30 am to wash some carpets. I'm feeling a bit tired now, after I studied some Swedish.
- The mail update will be in the end of this post. :)
I'm very late this time, sorry. Last week I was in Stockholm, Sweden with my friend Anna. (Yes, we were supposed to go to Italy, but unfortunately it was too expensive to go there.)We shopped and just had fun in Stockholm. We were supposed to use Swedish there, as we both have our final exam in the next fall. We spoke mostly Finnish, and some English with some foreigners, who thought we were Swedes. ;) It was an interesting trip, although I have visited Stockholm for so many times. Here are some photos from my trip... Enjoy! ;p 
Old Town <3

waiting for the shops to open...

The stamps, which I used for the postcard there.

Finnish flag :)

I was also at my grandmother's summer cottage to do some firewood, for a day with my dad and grandmother. I had to take some breaks while working, so I ended up taking some photos. 
It took me ages to get a good photo of it. ;>

I'm proud of myself that I was able to go so close to get this kind of photo. x)

Stamps! :)

So, now it's time for some stamps. :) Last week I decided to cut the stamps of the envelopes, which I have received from my pen pals' with whom I haven't been writing since 2010. I think they are quite beautiful, so I decided to take some photos of them. All of the stamps aren't in the photos because I didn't want to put similar once there. I hope you'll like the stamps as much as I do. :))

This one is a Swiss Christmas stamp. :)
Another lovely stamp from Switzerland. :)

I think these are the greatest Polish stamps, that I have ever received.
