Save The Post Office!

With the increasing use of the internet and e-mail we are always hearing of the plight of the US Postal Service.  That makes me sad.  I love mail, or snail mail - whatever you want to call it.  I love receiving a hand written letter or card.  (My daughters ask why they have to write a class assignment, why can't they just type it and print it out?  Ugh.) 

The sight of the little red flag on mailboxes always makes me hopeful.  Could it be a letter from the relative I've been hoping would write back?  Could it be a sample of something delicious - like chocolate covered something, with extra chocolate? ;->  Could it be that million dollars I've been trying for?

I've seen beautiful selections of mailboxes that I think would make a nice addition to our little house. A friend of ours had a mailbox made to look like a model of their home.  It's so cute, I mean so-o-o-o cute that it's a bit over the top for me.

I'm drawn to a wall mount design mailbox because we live on a somewhat busy street.  I know my tastes must sound tame by calling a monogrammed mail box "flashy", but that's how I am.  It's all filigree and brassy and very pretty.  What I find incredibly necessary is the lockable insert.  In this day and age, it's just a fact of life.

If you're in the mood to spruce up the exterior of your home, have you ever considered what difference a new mailbox would make?  It just might inspire you to sit right down and write someone a letter.  Save the Post Office!
