This post is all about my new mailbox.  Funny subject for a post on a stamping blog, right?  But when I saw this mailbox I knew I had to have it.  We live on a very busy road and you are taking your life in your hands when you step into the street to check the mail.  So I really wanted to get a mailbox with an access in the rear to get your mail, yet it had to be pretty, too.  Hubby just looked at me like I was crazy and said "you want to spend WHAT on a mailbox?"   My birthday was a couple of weeks ago though and I choose the mailbox over jewelry or anything else!  That way he couldn't complain!

Of course, I had to dress up the mailbox a little more.  It needed the house number, of course.  So I added those with die cuts from the Simple Numbers Dies using our Vinyl Sheets.  And it needed another decorative element - like that finishing touch of jewelry.  There's always room for embellishment in life, right?  I would have loved to use the Fleur-De-Lis Decorative Accent, but even the smallest one was too big.  So I added these lovely Ornate Flowers Decor Elements pieces.  Aren't they just perfect?  Hope you enjoy my little project.

  1. Gorgeous Marie. You can only wear jewelry one day at a time one piece at a time. This is something you can enjoy every hour of every day. The neighbors too! Cool!

  2. Truly beautiful! I can't believe I'm jealous of someone's mailbox right now...;)
