Finding the mail at home!

It has been a while since I added a new mailbox to our collection. In the past month, I have been out and about and found this lovely little home mailbox in a delightful bushland setting.

A very patient and creative person has used real stones and adhesive cement to make a genuine stone walled cottage! Mail is accessed through the front, which opens without disturbing the inviting bench on the verandah!

Have you ever…. considered making a mailbox that is a bit unusual? If you could make any sort of mailbox you wished, what would it be and how would you make it?

Have you ever seen any quirky or different mailboxes in your travels or in your district? If so, how about getting a photo and adding it to our collection? We have (amongst many unusual items), boat motors and fog horns, not to mention spiders, a penguin and a few fish! 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 and have your post added to the collection:

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). Then add comment to this post and your post will be included on the main list.

    Hi it is gorgeous – so inventive. You say you saw it in the Bushland – S Africa or Australia?

    This one’s a joy 🙂 Now where can I find one? I might just have to make my own. Not a good idea! It’d probably fall over when the postman touched it 🙂

      I think making one sounds like a wonderful idea! I have been thinking that as the host of this quest, perhaps I am somewhat obligated to improve on my plain old mailbox!

    We need to make a new letterbox – I will have to have a look here for some inspiration. These would surprise the postman, its not something you ever see in the UK!
