Welcome To The 60th Masterpiece Monday!


I've been ignoring a little problem for some time now. But it isn't getting any better or going away.

Yike's! Our poor mail box has seen better days, that's for certain! Metal doesn't do too well by the beach.
 Since Charles waters a lot near the mail box area too, he decided to make a new one out of some scrap wood.
 I painted it with free recycled paint, using a stencil I made.
The entire mail box was free, including the hinges we already had.
AAAHHHH......much better!


I think our mailman's in for a surprise tomorrow!

This is so darn cute! This will bring a big smile to your mailman's face for sure. I wish I had a mailbox I could personalize. We just have the boring locked ones in the middle of the block. No fun at all. Thanks for hosting.
