Nostalgic...

As I get older, I often find myself doing somewhat unusual things. Like running back out to the car to get my camera to snap a few photos of these old post office mail boxes. When I saw them, I was immediately taken back to my childhood trips to the post office with my Nanny or great Aunt Madge. They got their mail in boxes like these for years before getting a mail box in front of their home. So I was thrilled to find these at the little country post office where I bought my Christmas stamps. So cool. Oh, and I'm not that old... at least not as old as my dear hubby who is the same age as our newly elected President. Wow, our generation is now in charge. So, I guess I am old enought to feel nostalgic.

Wow, that brings back memories for me. I can remember going to the post office to pick my my grandmother's mail. What a great design they have. Looks like good inspiration for a card.

great picture! I kick myself when I don't have my camera with me at times. I just use my phone now that I learned how to upload them ;)
