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)

Ruby Bandaid

The owners who live at this property in the Dromana Hills are very keen on recycling.
Garden art - pieces of cars- and even the letter box are made of recycled materials.

Those people are really walking the talk as they say!

The old saying about one man's junk being another's treasure is so apt here. A mail/post box is a functional item - why not make it out of recycled items. Waste not-want not is the other old saying that works nicely here!

Very creative indeed. Hope the postman thinks the same because the front looks a bit sharp in some parts.
