No, No Thank You or Yes, but it will cost you….

You’ve just sat down to (choose any or all that apply)

  • A wonderful dinner
  • Watch the sunset with your favorite people
  • Benge watch  Inspector Lewis, Home Fires, and Downtown Abby with no interruptions
  • Catch you breath and rest your feet for just 10 minutes
  • Snuggle time with your Honey

AND THEN, there’s a knock at the front door or the door bell sounds.  You know what you do next….Are we expecting anyone?  Is it the prize notification team from PCH?  OR is it someone that will try to sell me something?  We all have our own method of dealing with the unknown solicitor at the door, but wouldn’t it be great if we could just have some way to screen these folks before they ring that bell. Perhaps one of these notices would help….take a look.

Signs like these and many more can be found on Etsy.  Enjoy!!

Got Letters???

I am delighted to say that 57 Artifacts has been very blessed with a steady stream of orders for made-to-order hand painted mailboxes.  I’m super excited that recently an order came in for a wall mounted mailbox.  It has been such fun to design for a different mailbox style.

I started with this ……

Add some hammered gray paint (our youngest son’s feet are not part of the package – size 11+ feet tend to show up everywhere!)

Then a little dab of green.  A little splotch of purple.  Some yellow to make it pop and red and blue…..well, just because.  The result can be something like this…





My next wall mount mailbox order includes hydrangeas and cardinals.  I’ll make certain to share my progress with you.  With all these custom orders I’m not getting very far on our own mailbox – it’s a very different theme.  Here’s a hint – “space…..the final frontier”.

Ok…enough chatter, I must get back to play, oops I mean “work”, orders await.  Have a wonderful day.

Blessings to you,
