RR1/Rural Thursday

One-of-a-kind rural mailbox

I bet everyone who sees this mailbox smiles.

Added later: I think the animal on the mailbox is a dinosaur. Do you think maybe it's a comment about snail mail versus email?

That's pretty cool. But what's the thing behind it that's also covered in mosaic?

RedPat said...

Great fun! I think I'll go with the idea that some kid made the dinosaur just to finish this off properly. ;-))

Lowell said...

I wonder how many people have plowed into a tree while looking at this thing? At first I thought it looked like a woman's purse, but then I realized that no male should ever go into a woman's purse!

cieldequimper said...

I would love to pick up my snail mail in this one!

Madge Bloom said...

I'll say that's one of a kind... very clever!

Ta skrzynka na listy jest niesamowita, widać są tacy, co lubię je otrzymywać. Pozdrawiam.
This mailbox is amazing, you can see there are some things I like to receive it. Yours.

Thank you for sharing at Rural Thursdays this week.

LONDONLULU said...

Haha, I love that! A sight you'd never find in a big busy city. I love that the creature resembles the Loch Ness monster, with reaaally long legs :)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I love the box -- I was thinking when I first saw that dinosaur (before I read your commentary) that it should be a big snail!!

Jack said...

That is . . . . . ummm . . . interesting.

Kate said...

I think that a mailbox theme would be most entertaining. This one is both colorful and creative.

Rose said...

Oh, that is so pretty. I wondered what the animal was...just might be a comment on snail mail. But I still love a hand written letter.
