Found 8 Coins Today

This evening I walked to Sprouts for their double ad Wednesday sale. I found a few things, mainly black grapes for 69 cents a pound. Yummy! On the way there, I found a nickel in my parking lot, a penny in the street, another penny standing up in a crack in the gutter, and a dime in the street.

Then I shopped.

As I was leaving the store, I found a penny in the track of the door, then another penny beside a water vending machine, a penny beside a car in the parking lot, and finally another penny in a drive-through lane.

Found 12 Cents and Made Some Cactus

Today I ran a bunch of errands and lucky for me, I spotted some money! 

  • First I found a penny in the street, well, it was really in the gutter, but close enough!
  • Then I found another penny on a bench as I was walking on a sidewalk on the way to the grocery store!
  • And finally in the grocery store, I pawed in the change tray of the copier and out fell a dime! Right on the floor. I snapped it up and went on my way!

I posed them next to some cactus I made. Have you found any money lately?

And on another note, I was asked by Zazzle to write about their iPhone 6 cases. Do you know about Zazzle? On their website, it's described as "a community marketplace where you can collaborate with makers and designers to make almost anything" and that includes iPhone 6 cases!


Here are some fun iPhone cases from one of my favorite designers, EMangl. He is a talented graphic artist and photographer and makes some wonderful designs including pink breast cancer designs, fun elephant (and lots of other animal) designs, Mozart, and Mona Lisa to name a few!

Found a Dirty Dime at Goodwill

Today everybody and their dog was at Goodwill (well, at two Goodwills) shopping mostly for Halloween costumes, I think, though people checking out had a variety of stuff they were buying. 

Anyway, the lines were long and as I was standing in line at the second store, I spotted this dirty dime on the floor. I'm really surprised I saw it but so glad I ddi!

I found some vintage linens too (the Sweet Dreams pillowcases and two tablecloths) and listed them in my Etsy shop if you'd like to take a look.

Denomination:  1 dime
Year:  1998

Condition:  very dirty

Found 12 Cents Today on a Walk and in the Grocery Store

Today I walked to the grocery store because I just needed a few things. On the way, as I walked through a parking lot, near an ATM I spotted two pennies on the pavement. Then in the grocery store I found a dime on the floor by the coin machine. 

I made these vintage button pendants this evening while watching Inspector Lewis. I just love these buttons, but I decided instead of hiding them away in my button jar, I'll share them with others. I've listed them on Etsy if you want to check them out.

I love how my found money total is growing this month! It's the cooler weather, of course.


Denomination:  2 pennies, 1 dime
