Self-Serve and a French Post Office Box

 I used the small chalkboard we had at our 'real' lemonade stand and put it with our indoor cart.  With so much family, self-serve is a must! Some of you will remember this from last year!

 You can see this old French post office box in the top picture (background) as a centerpiece on my table.  This would make a nice Christmas gift.  Start looking for unusual containers to hold poinsettias or other arrangements for your gifts!
This one still has the key!

Thanks for stopping by!

I love the lemonade dispenser, I wish I could get them here in Australia. The only ones i have seen are on eBay, imported from thr US and hideously expensive!

Well I'm afraid if I found that old mailbox nobody would ever receive it. I do love your idea though. Keep them coming. :)

I love that old post office box -- it's nice to "repurpose" things in different ways!

It looks great! I like antiques and old age, it makes sense to live independently.

What a darling idea! I am inspired to find a great and creative way (like you) to serve summer drinks. And I am jealous, in the nicest way, of that fabulous mailbox. What a great find!
Christie, come visit StoneGable I have a post I would like to share with you... share my joy!

The post office box is my favorite. It gets a second chance for being useful and it is an original piece for your flowers.
