Postal Basket


Near the front door is a little shelf that I salvaged. I painted it white, added a vintage post card and painted a few little flowers on it. Now I am using it to store the postal basket and my favorite vintage train case.



We don't get quite as many letters as we once did, but I still love to put the mail we still do receive in one spot.



I'm joining Marty for Table Top Tuesday and Linda for Nifty Thrifty Tuesday. Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Bentley, you love the postman don't you? You always give him a big welcome and a kiss too when he stops by each day.

Love,
Susan and Bentley

  14. speaking of mailman... Paul was pretty sure all last week that the mailman had took his "pirate boat" and "We got to get my boat back from the mailman," is what he would say every time he saw the mailman.
    Loving the train case.
    Hugs, The Lady
