Another wonderful mailbox has been found to be added to our Amazing Mailbox Quest. This is a (New Zealand made) Ashford spinning wheel and it was found on the southern highlands area of NSW. This area is quite chilly in winter and a spinning wheel is therefore quite appropriate!
I have two spinning wheels and used to spin and knit a lot when my family were younger and we lived in a cooler climate. One of my goals this year is to spin and knit myself a new Aran jumper for the winter. (For those who do not know much about knitting, Aran is the traditional type of pattern that looks like cables and plaits).
But back to the topic of mailboxes. Scrapydo has found a real beauty – it is an engine from a motor-boat, so do drop over to her website to have a look at that one if you have not already seen it.
You too are invited to join this quest! Already contributions from other bloggers so far 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.
