not for the intended use

I bought a mailbox. All the project ideas I’ve seen for it indicate it should be used with valentines. I’m going to put it on my desk at home and use it for postcards. Heck, it comes with 12 chipboard postcards. It wants to be filled with postcards. (Speaking of valentines, did anyone remember seeing baseball valentines back in the day? I recall receiving some, although I could be completely off here. I invariably gave out the cheap ones with the unlicensed designs. eBay is of no help but there are some lovely albeit expensive early 20th c. baseball-themed valentine postcards.)

I also bought a small metal tin that is also supposed to be decorated with paper. It’s just the right size to fit a small amount of toploaders. Yes, I’ll be storing baseball cards in it. Right now, there are three opened but unnoted packs in there. I will note further when I get some time; just thought people may be amused by the fact the mini flag insert in the Allen & Ginter pack shot out of the pack and onto the floor and nearly into the path of the oncoming dog. My dog likes paper about as much or more as she likes attacking unprotected feet. Don’t worry, I saved it in time.
