Tree mail

September 19, 2011

A few weeks ago I had to leave for work early on a Sunday morning and I was seriously pi$$ed that I had to drive to Geelong after a late one the night before.  By the time I arrived I was still completely feeling sorry for myself until I spied the most random workshop right there in front of the venue.  It was called iron and wood or something like that, and since our garden has a rustic flavour, I popped in on the off chance that they made letterboxes.  It must have been fate, coz they'd only JUST carved this massive hunk of redgum in half.

I reckon there's going to be people who share our love for it, people who point and laugh and people who are too polite to tell us we've lost the plot.  Are you brave enough to tell us which category you fit into?

Introducing our new mail box...
I know, right!  It's a freaking TREE!!!

This is how she looked before becoming a mail box!
I leant a few lessons that day.  Sometimes you have to trust that you're in exactly the place you're meant to be & that a Holden Cruze is a lot roomier than it looks.

Very nice, love it... though the perspective on the second shot makes it look like the letterbox is not vertical - If it's the same in real life (and from the other direction) , it is going to mess with the postie's mind!

Tash said...

@Debra, if you hadn't mentioned the typo my wife would have just accepted it as some foreign/Latin saying.... and wouldn't have burst out in random fits of laughter either; thanks!
