AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Weekend Mailbox #2 ~ A Mini Barn?

Pics by Gemma Wiseman ~ Strangely shaped mailbox, that looks a little weathered, on top of a squat, freshly painted pillar in the Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula
Weekend Mailbox #2

Scruffy weathered box
Excerpt from a mini world
Like a shrunken barn
A few introductory comments:
1. Post a photograph of anything that relates to mailboxes.
You can select anything to do with mail.
Here are a few ideas!
vintage cards/postcards
old letters
2. Add your name + country (initials) and link to Linky Tools below.
3. Your link must be a "permalink" and go directly to your Weekend Mailbox post.
4. Link back to Weekend Mailbox in your post tags.
5. You may like to use the Weekend Mailbox badge located in this post or on the sidebar! Right click and save it on your computer. When you add it to your post, ensure you click on the image and link it to Gemma's Greyscale Territory. Then others may follow the link here.
P.S. I am aware that U.S. has official mailboxes.
But anything related to mail is great for this meme!
It's OK to think outside "the mailbox"!!!

What a dear little barn! I wonder if the roof lifts to allow parcels to be delivered?

The weathered look of the mailbox coordinates well with the weathered fence behind it.
