Old Mailbox turned VaseMay 12th, 2011 in member junk
Recently replaced my grandma's mailbox and this was too good to not keep. Wasn't sure at the time what I would use it for, but knew I would find a good use for it! I'm currently using it as a vase (vase holder) for flowers and tree limbs. I thought about hanging it on my front porch, but for now I like decorating with it inside. It would also make a great umbrella stand.
One of the best features is that both sides have her address on it. One side has old worn and faded stickers that I probably put on there about 15 years ago. The other side shows the faded hand-written address that was probably done by my grandpa, who's been gone for over 20 years. Not only is this piece junky and a great piece of art - but it's also a piece of family!
