Let me say how much I have been looking forward to linking up to Debbiedoo's copycat challenge. I have never had anything to share, but finally found just the right thing.
You all know how everything I've been doing lately revolves around the history of my family, and this is no exception. My grandfather was the postmaster here at the Balsam Post Office for many years. I was elated when I saw a photo on Pinterest with old mailboxes, because I remembered seeing some here. Below is my photo...

Here is a view of Balsam in the 1920s or 30s from the porch of the Balsam Mountain Inn that includes my grandfather's store behind the train. The post office was at that time in the two-story building below. The post office was moved several times as at least one building burned down, and actually operated out of Knight's Store during transition.

I enjoyed this challenge so much, and was so happy to find something I could attempt to copy.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
