My cousin, Gale, has added a little something to her Austin cottage. It's clever and so cute.
Gale took some photos of her new addition, had them printed and then sent them
to me by mail; you know, post office mail...hard copies.
I still love getting mail in my physical mailbox in the front of my house
but it makes it kind of hard to share the pictures with you.
I have to scan them into the computer and it's almost impossible to edit them.
I like what she's done though and really wanted to share it with you
so here are the pictures she sent me.
Do you remember my cousin's cottage? A few months ago, I shared
a lot of pictures of her house and gardens. It was a cool spring day
in the early morning when I took the pictures.
If you missed the posts about the cottage, you can visit them
by clicking on the link on the upper right sidebar of my blog.
Here is her house on a hot Texas summer day.
Do you see her little addition near the road?
She's changed her mailbox.
She used an old sewing machine base (all perfectly white and chipped up,
added a board to the top, a couple of smaller pieces of wood on each side
of the mailbox for support, nailed it all together and there you go!
How cute is that?
