A couple of months ago the mailbox that our house came with was halfway knocked off its post. One of our neighbor’s was knocked off as well. At first I thought a: Drunk Driver or b: Teenagers With Too Much Time On Their Hands. But then Chris saw the deep scrape marks in the asphalt and decided it might have been the city lawnmower guy when he was mowing the ROW area.
No matter, we wanted a new mailbox anyway and it took us forever to decide on one. I don’t like generic mailboxes. I don’t mind the ones bricked in but our house isn’t brick so it would look strange. Florida has a lot of manatee mailboxes and other assorted tropical mailboxes but I think they would be out of places in a pine woodland setting.
Chris searched online and we went to a couple of different places to look for one we both thought would be distinctive enough before he found this one. It is simple but elegant and something that I thought would suit our house.
And to keep up with being distinctive, Chris found Haitian Metal Steel Drum Art for house numbers, so once that arrives it’ll be complete. That shop has some really interesting pieces of art that we may have to look into later on.
I like it! Let’s just hope no one runs into this one!
