Someone has gone to considerable trouble to construct this lovely, inviting little cottage mailbox. The detail is lovely – contrasting paint on the veranda makes it so welcoming, along with the rays of sunshine (ah….. and a cobweb or two!) streaming in from the west.
The owner is no stranger to country living – tanks are a common feature where there is no water supply from the mains!
The house attached to this mailbox is unfortunately not visible. I would bet that it is painted in similar colours though, and perhaps even resembles its miniature at the gate!
This is another example of the creativity which can be found at many gateways. Recently, we were made aware that mail deliveries will no longer be made every business day (email has taken over from much of what used to be delivered). It will be sad to see these lovely works of art no longer be used when one day, mail ceases to be delivered at all.
If you have contributions to add to our mailbox collection, or if you have a great mailbox yourself, please take some photos, publish a post and link it to the Amazing Mailbox Quest. The more the merrier!
