After a month, I heard from the recipient that the box had not arrived. We discussed what to do. And we discussed the thieves somewhere between here and there.
Well, to my delight, surprise and amazement the pretty box came back to me yesterday intact and with a note of several attempted delivers. You might notice that I signed and dated the art, but I did not put my return address anywhere .....anywhere on the box. Don't ask me why. So anyway, it came back to the town and zip code that was on the mailing strip. Seems I have a reputation at my post office and they knew exactly how to get it to me.Turns out the recipient had moved and there was a mix up at her post office. The box needed to come back to me and I'm not sure why except perhaps to show and teach me several lessons.
Not wanting to tempt fate a second time, I placed the box in a box and readdressed it and sent it on its way. I just can't help it.....there was a hole in the otherwise perfect box. The box is winging it way back to Canada throwing kisses all the way.

I've told you more than once, "I'm certified" crazy. Our most popular bluebird box needed a renovation this year. It is an experiment to see what they think about wallpaper. One male bluebird has already been spotted coming out of the box. They are checking it out. I know it seems early, but they start looking for vacancies in January. Isn't it exciting? I can't wait to take photos of the nest and blue eggs in their beautiful new abode.
