The summer holidays have provided a bit of time for me to get away and do some travelling. This increased the opportunities for finding some more amazing mailboxes and quite a few have been added to my collection. These I will post as I get the chance.
I have been surprised at how many of these features have been on roads that I travel quite often. But until I started to look carefully, I did not really notice them!
Very creative use of old gas bottles has made a simple head and torso and flexible plastic pipe makes interesting arms and a neck. I think he is absolutely delightful!
(WARNING: cutting into a gas bottle, even when empty is extremely dangerous and potentially life threatening, please don’t copy this idea unless you get a properly qualified specialist to do the cutting).
I must confess I am intrigued about the fact that this mailbox effectively has two sections. Two families on one farm perhaps (it was in a rural area)? I wonder how the postie knows (a) which one to use and (b) which mail goes in each box? Perhaps the address specifies this information
Have you found any quirky, different or unusual mailboxes in your travels? We would be delighted if you would add what you find to our collection – the more the merrier.
Bloggers who have either found photos or had them in their collection are listed on my primary mailbox post. To see other posts on this blog which are part of the Amazing Mailbox Quest, please click on the link at the top of the page.
To participate in the Amazing Mailbox Quest:
Get a photo (please either photograph without the owner’s details or cover/blur them so that they are not readily identifiable) and post it on your site. It would be good to know the country and state of each entry, but to protect the privacy of the owners, please avoid any detailed location information in your post or in the photo(s).
Tag the post ‘Amazing mailbox quest’, then add a link to it in the comments on this page so that others can find your posts. I will also add a link (to your post) to the overall list along with everyone else’s.
