Elegant mailbox and Best Blog Award


In Ocala, we have the usual blah mailboxes, we have some funky mailboxes (but not as funky as Fort Lauderdale) and we have elegant mailboxes, like this one! If I had taken a better picture, you would see that the brick of the mailbox matches the brick on the house.



Our thanks goes to Sashindoubutsu at Snapping Panda for this wonderful Best Blog Award. We are honored and grateful. Please visit Sashindoubutsu and her beautiful blog here.

Our mailbox is just a slot in our front door.

WOW! That's very cool! It almost looks like a mobius strip! Super!

Fantastic work that went into creating this piece of art, that surely took a lot of time & effort.

I've looked in Paint Shop Pro for the Smart Blur, but I couldn't find it. I used color filters all the time, so I know where that is. The only thing close is the 'Enhance Photo' button & once clicked there's Smart Photo Fix & a few other options, but no Smart Blur. There's the Gaussian Blur option & Digital Camera Noise Removal. I'll keep looking & I'll ask my brother too if he knows about it. Thanks so much, Jacob - I appreciate your help!

In past times they have been building something like that, but not so creatively twisted, only for images of Saints and Madonnas! Wonderful catch of a great mailbox.

It must have been damn tricky to build this! It's a piece of art!
God bless you!

Wow. They put some work into that. I passed one today that had a mailbox mounted on the front of a rusty old tractor. People are so funny.

Congrats on the award.

Congratulations!

How's the new grandson and his mom doing?

Jacob said...

Thanks Louis! They are doing just fine from what we hear. He's the "perfect" baby, sleeping and eating!

BlossomFlowerGirl said...

That is one seriously artistic letterbos. It looks like a sculpture. Much better than mine - all I have is a plain old metal thing which doesn't lock and collects rain!
Congrats on your award - it is well deserved.
