Easter bunny spotted on Samish Street!

Easter bunny spotted on Samish Street!
 
While on one of our public art adventures, we came across this unique mailbox. Since Easter is coming up, we knew it would be the perfect show and tell feature. 
 
So who created this adorable rabbit mailbox? Well we had to know so we followed some bunny tracks which led us to Clyde Petersen’s house! 
 
Clyde claims that there’s not much of a story. The pandemic and a love of rabbits collided and the first of many projects came to life. Clyde took advantage of the isolation that COVID brought and did something he’s always wanted to try – animal mailboxes. Lucky for us he liked it and looks forward to making more!
 
Easter is Clyde’s favorite holiday because it celebrates the rabbit so that made choosing his first mailbox subject a breeze. From there he just had to make a template out of cardboard to test out the pieces. Then he used a jigsaw to cut them out of plywood, painted them and attached them with screws. Easy peasy… At least for Clyde!
