What is it about mailboxes...why am I obsessing about them lately? I think it's because I hardly get any "real mail" anymore inside my mailbox. Bills, bills, bills, oh and junkmail...that's all I get nowadays! Remember these two mailboxes I posted about here and here? Well, I found two more mailboxes at yard sales this weekend. Transformed them of course from their original rusty ugly look - this time, after I painted them, I simply applied some cool graphics found from Graphics Fairy!
Here are the mailboxes before -
Here they are after - this is the Eiffel Tower side
And the french letter side - quelle romantique!
I simply enlarged the graphics and printed them using clear blank labels bought at Staples
By the way, the mailboxes are sitting on top of this old ladder I found at my local thrift shop...the best part...it was already painted blue!
It's an excellent bookshelf
Where I can easily grab my fave design books
Of course I have to mention that those pretty pale pink geraniums all came fresh from my window boxes. They are thriving so happily right now.
Speaking of mailboxes, etc. (haha!)...mon petite boutique has gone "par avion" - international style. A dear sweet blogger, Celia from Atteatude and Chocolate found the two pieces below when she clicked on my boutique tab. She liked them so much, she ordered them just like that! It was rather fun shipping two big boxes to Canada, that's where she's from. Celia, like many of us has such a great life story to tell in her other blog Falling Off a High-Heeled Life. Check it out here...her story is one of those inspirational must read, really. Merci beaucoup dearest Celia!
