If you’re a long-time follower of mine, you’ve likely heard about my 6 month best-friendship with my mailman. If not, here’s the backstory, last year I had an AWFUL mail-carrier whom I didn’t trust and therefore I went to the post office as many as 4 and 5 times a day to drop off my mountains of packages to be checked in because this previous carrier didn’t even take the time to scan my packages in when picking them up. I would say hello and he’d turn his nose up and walk briskly away — it made no sense to me since I always went out of my way to be friendly.
Fast forward to the spring and a new mail carrier knocked on my door to introduce himself. He said he heard I have a lot of packages sometimes (yes, daily, but I’d been dropping them off) and wanted to see how he could make my life easier — hallelujah!
Now we’re to the point he knocks on my door to check on me if I haven’t put my tote(s) out by 11 am or otherwise stopped mail service because we’re out of town. I’ve made him a custom sign to show my appreciation and tell him every chance I get that I truly do appreciate how much easier he’s made my day as a small business owner.
With Mr. Gray in mind, I have a new ornament so you can show YOUR mail carrier how much you appreciate them too this holiday season. This ornament is 5.25″ wide and 3.5″ tall with three layers of hand-glued, hand-painted wood and comes with a shimmery silver ribbon to make the metallic hubcaps.
