To buy: $71, csnlighting.com.


6 Mailbox by Ecco

df-silo-white-mailbox_300This romantic aluminum mailbox, protected with a lock and adorned with a Victorian cherub motif, seems more deserving of handwritten love letters than junk mail and bills.

Egg Birdhouse by J. Schatz

df-yellow-birdhouse_300This adorable earthenware residence hangs from vinyl-coated wire and features a two-inch-long perch for feathered friends.
