I love old mail boxes almost as much as I love mail! These days I rarely receive mail the old fashioned way save and except letters from my dear mom. Email is convenient, but it is no substitute for a handwritten letter on beautiful stationery. I'm grateful my mom doesn't own a computer!
I purchased the above mail box on eBay and repainted it. For now, it remains empty waiting for the next issue of Victoria and a sweet letter from dear mom. I'm thinking I should fill it with pink stationery, my favorite pen, stamps and shabby pink stickers. Maybe that will motivate me to limit my emails and write some letters the old fashioned way!
Part of my re-organization plan is to get the little pieces of paper off my desk and pinned to my message board. Of course, that took some time because first I had to clean up an old window frame, add padding and pink chenille fabric, make glass beaded push pins, print out my notes on pink paper and convince my husband that hanging this heavy message board was of utmost importance. Whew!
Next on the list. . . a pink calendar holder!
