Amazing Mailboxes around the world

Madoqua of “Have you ever” blog started a challenge to find unusual mailboxes from around the world, as the need for mailboxes seems to be fading fast. A number of people have found some quite amazing samples and posted them on Madoqua’s blog.

Scrapydo posted some on her blog and led me to discover this challenge, so I thought I would find contribute too. Click here to see the original post that started it all.

In my neighbourhood, there is one that is like a Norwegian ‘hytte’ (or cabin in the mountains) It even has a turf roof. The fence, however, jolts you back into suburban Australia…..

About Forestwoodfolk

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.
