The Overflowing Mailbox

What happens when you have a lot of people that live in the same house?

Lots of mail.

What happens when Amazon Prime is your best friend?

Lots of packages.

I had purchased the cutest little metal mailbox that had a vintage feel for the front porch.

So cute right?

Well most of the time, the mail was left on one of the chairs because it wouldn’t fit in the mailbox.

My friend Jody was over and visiting the garage. I have friends who visit in the house and friends that visit in the garage. Lovers of the hoard and all of its possibilities.

We are chatting about such possibilities and I mention and point to an old ugly breadbox.

I forgot, of course to take a before picture but it looked very similar to this

An ugly brown box……..He says “how about a mailbox?”


Brilliant!! Why didn’t I think of that???

I paint inside and out black since the porch colors are black and white. Make a trip to HOBLOB and find the perfect size and already white MAIL letters and the cutest crystal knob.

Screw that baby onto the house and now just wait for the mailman to deliver all our glorious mail that will fit into our super size, super cute mailbox.

I will have to wait until Thursday.

Happy Independence Day friends. I am proud to be an America and forever our flag will wave and our dog will hopefully not have a stroke shaking from all the fireworks.
