Cute mailboxes and pretty garden features are part of…
mail delivery. I believe it’s a lovely gift given back to you for your efforts.
See, I delivered papers today for the first time! Most kiddos join the force early on. But 50 year old me? Never too late, right? 😉
Truth be told, my boy is taking over for neighbours that generally do it. So over the course of 2 weeks, we’ll be packin’ papers and getting to know the neighbourhood in a different way.
I walk everyday anyway, and the more I think of it, the smarter this is.
Why not walk and get paid for it?
We have quiet, pretty country styled roads so there’s plenty to see. It was a pleasure as well as a chance to bond with my boy in a different way together as well. Teamwork!
And you know me, right? I can’t keep my camera, or in this case, iPhone tucked away for too long. So I sneaked in a few selected areas that spoke to me (before I got caught). So… let’s snoop! 🙂
Don’t you love how these shrubs hug this mailbox? It was totally stunning in person.
A sweet little rustic mailbox with a moss covered asphalt roof.
Just like a real shed buried under a tree. Adorable.
This home and it’s amazing flower gardens belonged in a magazine.
I adore the stamped concrete sidewalk.
This reclaimed lumber mailbox was perfection. That’s a rusty tin heart.
I’d just like it to be known here and now, that I adore houses that have mail boxes, even in hand delivered areas. I’m going to rethink the newspaper stuck under the front doormat or shoe or rock thing myself. I want to have a charming little junk styled mailbox too!
The birdhouses were absolutely buried in a deep abundant pile of daisies. It was stunning.
Why do red geraniums make just everything look exquisite? Such a pretty sight in a little front porch.
The walk was a great workout. And yeah… I was really really beat. I actually sat down on the sidewalk on the way home… Ok, it was REALLY hot out so I’m sure that’s why. 🙂
Regardless, I’m pretty sure it did this ‘ol girl some good. I think I want a paper route… for REAL.
(until it rains or snows…)
