Guilty! But I ask you, who could resist an armload of freshly cut BOXWOOD? Branches of holly loaded with glistening red berries? The chipper truck was swiftly advancing. Someone had to rescue those clippings!
But what to do with all of it? Here, everyone likes to swag their mailboxes with tasteful bundles of greenery. The only problem is this slippery plastic mailbox. Ha! I scoff at challenge. Mrs. MacGyver will simply bend two coat hangers into a saddle over the top. No wire? No problem. I can weave two fir branches into the coat hangers on each side.
Uh oh. My coat hanger is showing. Better add some boxwood sprigs to cover the bald spot.
That boxwood is a bit fluffier than I thought. Perhaps I should stop now.Nah. It just needs some bright holly berries to distract the eye. Yes, yes, more holly.My husband didn't mention my incredible masterpiece over dinner.
He did ask if I'd recently ordered a Chia mailbox.
Good thing the chipper truck hits MY street tomorrow.
