I saw someone with this mailbox the other day and I really liked it. Especially since we live on the river. Do you think it's cool, or is it tacky?

The house that I saw that had it was out in the middle of nowhere.

I agree, if you live near water (better if it can be seen while standing by the fish). I've seen them here by the shore, and it's cute when they're by the water.

My brother would love it for his house and he doesn't even live on the water but he lives and breathes to fish. I say go for it!

Cute. But does it have a little door, in case of rain?

I wonder what the hooks are for. I say go for it.

Whaddya mean Linda?

It will be right by the water. If you look real close, you can (barely) see it in this picture :

The ones I've seen have a door inside the mouth, and the hooks are for your newspapers (hung by the bag handles) and small packages.

It's not tacky ,it's actually fitting for the location. Now the plywood cut outs of the bloomer lady bending over is tacky!

It has personality, and so do you! You have a fun, cute, eclectic house, so I say it will be perfect!

That looks like that singing bass guy Linda. LOL!!!
This one has a door on the front. I guess it does blend a bit so you can't really see it in the pic. It looks like it's copper or brass.

Ummm... I wouldn't... but I'm more of a classic, clean lines type of gal.
Well duh Linds. LOL! ;D

There is a farmer in VT where my dad is from that has the cutest cow mailbox. Now any where else it would be tacky but in front of his cow pasture I think it looks great.

I say go for it where you live by the a river that looks like rainbow trout could live in it it would look great.

Ya think? I think of it more as a little river cottage. It is cute though. :)

Amy, am I cracking up, or was it you who was painting an old door or window frame or something some fun colors, to repurpose it for your garden?

I think you are cute and fun, so I think that transfers to your house as well. :)
