~who knew~

We have been looking at these ugly broken down mailboxes for 11 years now. With our neighbors permission we spent the day (well, mostly my husband) building a new structure.
Who knew how much nicer it would look?
I am so happy I don't have to look out my kitchen window at that any more!

I know they are just mailboxes, but they make me happy!

Does this mean we are "grown ups" now because we get excited over mailboxes? I just recently did a post on changing our mailbox. I was thrilled to get rid of our old one.

Your new mailboxes looks absolutely amazing!! I love the change.

Are you kidding...one day...THAT is a dream mailbox spot! Great job!

Marie said...

Oh my...the before looked like the Beverly Hillbillies - with only one box covered and the others crooked left out in the cold! I can see why you didn't like the view. The new structure is awesome. Fabulous job!
Blessings,
Marie

As a former rural mail carrier- I can officially say that your husband's handiwork is indeed a beautiful thing! We always loved it whenever somebody took the time and trouble to fix up and/or redo an unsightly row of mailboxes! Good job!

Elise Bass said...
