Our old letterbox needed replacing, and I wanted something novel. Nothing I could find locally appealed. I discovered a site in the U.S. which offered a wonderful selection, but the price, with shipping, was beyond my budget, plus I’m wary of buying online. I really fancied a box which looked like a snail (snail mail!), and Stephen said he could make one.
This is the result. Already it’s attracting admiring glances and a professional photographer asked permission to photograph it. All we need now is for letters to arrive.
“This most unusual purple snail
is waiting to receive some mail.”
