Oh yes, wait a minute Mr. Postman

As a part of our stay-cation projects we decided to continue our updates to the front porch.  We’ve been eyeing this Victorian-style mailbox a one of the local shops in our neighbourhood pretty much since we moved in.  The lettering reminded both of us of our timing living abroad and we loved the the scene on the front – man delivering a letter to his sweetheart (at least that’s my interpretation!)  It makes me think of the days when we spent more time writing actual letters than e-mails.  When I was younger,  writing letters was the way I stayed in touch with most of my camp friends – I couldn’t wait to get home and check the mailbox.  This new one gives me that same feeling!
