Folk Art Mailboxes

While on my mail delivery route, I snapped a few pix. This mailbox is a tiny handmade barn, complete with shiny, tin roof and little hand-hewn window frames.

This ingenious creator added a door handle for easy access to the mail.

Why be fancy for a handle? This extra large bolt works perfectly well.

This mailbox has seen years of delivery. It's almost elegant handle could formerly have used on a kitchen pantry or screen door.

This box is a deterrent to those who smash mailboxes. It's created from a heavy, steel pipe. The door is so heavy, it's hard to lift.
