M is for Mailboxes on ABC Wednesday

I thought this mailbox was interesting with the twisted tree branches in the background.


I saw this mailbox at a Dallas shopping mall last week. It was part of an art exhibit on display.


This huge mailbox has a historical significance of being the mailbox for the first cannery in the area.

I like these! It's interesting how people's own personalities come out in what they choose for a mailbox, be it a rural one on a post or one attached to your house. Great shots! :D

I thought the first mailbox was hidden in the tree.
The second was more my style

When we moved into our house, the mailbox had a bullet hole through it where the lady of the house had shot at her ex. I guess she missed.

Those are fascinating mailboxes. I love the one with the twisty tree, but my husband likes the second (though he says it looks more like a female box to him!)

Great choice! I almost did not see the 1st upon first glance. Loved the 2nd one. It made me bust out laughing.
