2 Reasons A Vintage Post Box is the Perfect Christmas Decoration

A vintage post box is a lovely accent all-year-round. But there’s something about the Holidays that evokes a special love for all things vintage. This is the time of year we send each other cards and letters in the mail, gather as a family, and return to traditions of old. Below are two ways that something as simple as a vintage post box can add to the beauty of Christmas.

1.  It’s a creative way to store and display your holiday cards. 

Every year we try to come up with new and exciting ways to display our Holiday Cards. Some years they end up covering the entire fridge and other years they end up on our living room end tables. This is a new and creative way to store holiday cards that adds a casual, vintage feel. It’s the perfect Farmhouse Christmas accent: a vintage post box full of holiday love and well wishes. Post-Box-A2-G60171

2. It makes an unexpectedly charming winter bird house 

This idea is great because it’s not just for Christmas! Celebrate all winter with this adorable bird’s nest idea. Add some winter greenery, some adorable tiny birds, and this Whitewashed Bird Nest, and you’ll have a lovely winter accent that brings the beauty of nature inside.
