YOU'VE GOT MAIL! on M.E. MONDAY

It's time for another M.E. (Mary Engelbreit) Monday with Vicki the Cherry Chick!


I've got mail today! ME mail, to be exact. I've had this mailbox for quite some time - it was Becky's (and her dolls) mailbox to play with. There are dings in it, and some marker and tag residue on the flag, but that's the way kids are!

I have ME address labels, of course, and even ME envelope stickers with perforated edges like stamps! My favorite is the Cherry Express one.

Here are some different views of the box.

Only Mary would make the bottom of something as pretty as the top!
I just had to include my pretty pink Astilbes, too! ('Sister Theresa')
Send me a letter sometime - the mailbox is waiting!

So cute! Mailboxes, themselves, may become collector items like vinyl records!

Cherry Chick said...

Too Cute! Love the mailbox! I think I can make out the address on the return label...lol! Look for ME Mail in your mailbox soon.
Thanks so much for sharing with us all today.

Wow....we are all so much alike! I have one of her mailboxes too, and I have some of her address labels! Mine are a bit different, but we think along the same lines! :):):)

I have one of her mailboxes too. I use it at Valentine's Day. One of my teacher friends has one that says queen on it and I'm always "kidnapping" it. I don't know why she always can figure out it's me! LOL

Love the astilbe in the background. Just the perfect touch!

What a cute mailbox. With that pink flag you could link this up to Beverly's Pink Saturday. :-)

Is there anything that ME makes that isn't cute? What an adorable little mailbox, and I'm loving the pink astilbes too. They almost look like cotton candy!

Hi Sue! I am beginning to think that us "Red Girls" do need pink in our lives as well. What an adorable mailbox for you! I wanted to let you know that your tags have arrived, and they are absolutely my favorite yet! Patti Page! You are just so sweet to include her! I will be posting your tags on my blog tomorrow. I have one participant left to receive their tags and then will be mailing. Thank you again so much for sharing your art with me! Elizabeth

Now THAT is a cool mailbox. Too bad we have to have them on our porch.

What a sweet mailbox! This is the first I've seen of this meme. I'm afraid I'm very out of touch lately with the blogs. My daughter keeps me busy as her playmate during the summer!
Hugs,
Dawn

Everything Mary makes is so very cheerful! And you're right, she completely decorates everything to the last detail!
Love your mailbox and stationery!

Very Cherry,
I love your mailbox. It is very sweet and I also like the different colors and the paten in the middle. I like the way you have put a pice off paper with 9 stamps into the lip of the mailbox. It looks like you have got mail.
