We just changed the decoration on our mailbox from Santa to Happy New Year.
We love Calvin & Hobbes by Bill Watterson, so we have made two mailbox decorations to honor his great work and sense of humor. This one appeals to us because we have never been the nostalgic “Auld Lang Syne’ types at New Years. At our age, we just got used to writing ‘2019’ on our checks and now we have to think again before writing… :0)
I just finished adding my hand painted wooden earrings to my new Etsy shop – EyecatchingEarrings. I can’t decide if I need to work on a banner to go across the top of the page or not. If you have the time to take a look, I would appreciate your opinion.
As we came in from getting the mail and putting up the new mailbox decoration, I was appalled to see dog hair balls on the floor that were blowing in the breeze we made as we walked by. This tells me two things:
THING ONE – I need to get up off my duff and VACUUM, and
THING TWO – I need to defurminate Molly again.
I absolutely will do thing one and will TRY to do thing two.
I hope that your Saturday is a good one!
On the way to our second round of errands this afternoon, we changed the mailbox decoration. This is Wyle E. Coyote, Sonic the Hedgehog, and the Roadrunner.
This decoration was a lot of fun to make. We cut the main decoration out with the CNC machine and computer-guided torch, then added rod to make the Roadrunner’s legs. The decoration is probably 4 feet wide by 3 feet tall.
It’s cold outside, even though we have a lot of pretty sunshine today. The wind is really gusty and rips right through you. We felt like we would freeze while trying to put this up.
The picture doesn’t show it, but the gold coins in the bucket sparkle in the sunshine. He is about 2-1/2 feet tall.
I hope you have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day!
We just put up our ‘Swooping Eagle” mailbox decoration that will stay up until mid-November.
This is the back of the eagle. You can see where I tried to blend in the mounting bracket into the design.
We were out doing errands earlier and were really surprised that, since this morning, the wind is now coming from the north and blowing fairly strongly. It’s 50 out, but things are still really wet from the rain and the wind just blows through you. We were cold putting this up!
