Mailbox Etc.

Today I took a leisurely drive through farm country north or Bellingham. I was looking for dairies to photograph for another post.

When I stopped to take a picture, I turned around and saw this rustic mailbox. Take one well used steel barrel, fill it with dirt, then use a few bungees to hold your mailbox and newspaper box in place. Not fancy, but it gets the job done. Plus, no one is going to knock this one over with a bat. -- Margy


  1. That is a real creative mailbox. Using what is available! I have been remiss in my blog reading and have been trying to catch up. I sure have missed it. Margy, I am glad you have returned back home to your lovely floating cabin. I assume your mother is much improved? I hope to catch up on your post today...I love your blog, one of my favorites.

  2. I love the creativity and cleverness of the mailbox, Margy! I am very fond of Bellingham. There are many opportunities for “dairy photos” there so I’ve no doubt you captured many interesting scenes. :)

  3. Mailboxes---we use what we have. Mine is listing at a weird angle---I guess i should fix it. LOL

    Thanks for the yummy Crab and Mushroom recipe. I copied it and will make it---maybe tonight.

    Someday we will sit down over coffee but it seems like we both at busy-----At what??? MB

  4. Now, there's a great idea! Ours, knock wood, has survived. We might buy a new one, with a flag that truly works, if it survives the snowplows!
