4337 East Glenn Street

Here's the third of three mailboxes along this stretch of Glenn. Let's start with a view from the top:

That's the east side. Next, from the west:

My trip along Glenn was on September 19th.

All in a row in Santa Fe

Once in a while, while I'm on the road, I'll show a mailbox somewhere outside of Tucson. Here are nine of them from Santa Fe on October 8th. The row is between galleries on artistic Canyon Road:

The exact location is behind Gallery 901, along Gypsy Alley. I was there on October 8th.

3307 East Ventana Canyon Drive

This is the fourth and last box in the series by custom mailbox maker Emily Mann of Solaz Designs. I asked if she had any new mailboxes to show all of you while I'm out of town (and low on mailboxes).

This is her “Wizard of Oz tree” mailbox. It's about 7 feet tall and as wide!

Here's a closer view from the same side.

Thanks once more, Emily, for helping me (and us) over these four weeks.

4349 East Glenn Street

Ever seen a ladybug mailbox?

I think that's what this is: red with black spots and two springy antennae.

Here's the west side:

I buzzed by on September 19th.

5450 North Calle la Cima

Let's look at the third box in this series by Emily Mann of Solaz Designs. She sent these photos of her “tree of life” mailbox.

First, a view from the front.

Next, the right corner… with the bird in front and another on the side. I cropped her original photo to just the top, so this photo is a bit small and fuzzy:

There's another bird on the left side. Underneath, sideways near the top of the pole, is Emily Mann

Whattabox! Great work, Emily.

4661 East Glenn Street

I finally made my mailbox-hunting trip along the east end of Glenn — in central Tucson, not the part near Houghton Road — west to Country Club. (Actually, I started at Sahuara & Grant, then looped north to join Glenn and headed west from there. It's a nice detour off of busy Grant Road.) I'd spotted three fun mailboxes and wanted to come back. Here's one of the three:

That's the west side. Here's the east:

I slithered by on September 19th.

600 East Calle Concordia

Here's another photo of a box by Emily Mann of Solaz Designs. Emily makes custom mailboxes.

She calls this one a “tailored box.”

Thanks for sharing, Emily!
