Functional Street Art

Had to turn around to get a photo of this mailbox stand in Tampa. It was on a busy street; I suspected someone knocked over the previous mailbox stand. So this person made another stand a little harder to knock over. We were in a rush to be some where and Gary was getting irritated at me, so I could only get a quick shot. His ear is where the mail box is and the door opened to put the mail in. The other side had a different face on it. What a great idea, functional street art at it's best.


  1. Wow, I just hope who ever knocked the other one over doesn't take this as a challange.
    Very creative.

  2. I would love to see the look on my neighbor's face if I put that up in my front yard :) I imagine it fits in much better in florida than it would in Nevada. My husband always threatens to put up a mail box that looks like R2D2 from Star Wars :)

  3. Hi Patti, thanks, I am not sure the other one as knocked over, but perhaps, or perhaps someone was just creative.

    Hi Cindy, thanks, my Gary would want to do the same thing, some strange mailbox or some such, he truly doesn't care what others think. This sort of thing is accepted more around here I think. In California the postal service would probably make us take it down.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
