2920 North Estrella Avenue

You can't miss this red and white mailbox with numbers carved alongside the post!

I was blinded :) as I rode by on November 20, so I parked my bike and snapped these shots.

2738 North Estrella Avenue

Riding my bike by on November 20th, I couldn't miss this mailbox on a peace sign-shaped “post”:

That side of the box is painted with bright-colored flowers, but the flowers on the other side have faded:

Update (August 12, 2016): I just looked at this entry again and realized that the “post” isn't quite a peace sign. (Click to see a Google Image search for peace sign.) If you have an idea what this carving is, please leave a comment below. (You can remain anonymous.)

2041 East Waverly Street

When I drove by this home on the route of the fall artists’ open studios tour November 14th, the scene looked as if an artist lives here:

Though I saw the house number on the red circle, I didn't notice the number on the curb:

The pole was painted in same style as the box and curb:

Thanks, homeowner, for this fun scene!

2609 East Mabel Street

Along my route on the fall 2015 artists’ open studios tour, one artist had this mailbox out front with a tour sign hung over it:

Those are steel cholla on top — and a flag shaped like a cowboy with chaps to keep the cholla away:

It looks like the Mann Family have roots in Montana and Arizona:

Thanks, Brady and Celia...

I snapped their mailbox photo on November 7th.

708 North Desert Avenue

Here's the fourth of four mailboxes in the three blocks of this little street:

I've read that Sesame Street characters have been updated by HBO in 2016, so this photo from February 3 might not show the latest faces.

Here's a black box with a yellow flower and the house number on both sides:

This is one of several mailboxes I found on Desert Avenue November 7th.
