Found a Nickel on a Short Walk

Today I took a really short walk, just across the street around a commercial parking lot. But I found a nickel so it was worth it! It's so hot out and I really miss taking longer walks. Oh well. When the snow's flying pretty much everywhere else in a few months, I can walk to my heart's content.

I posed the nickel next to a can I'll be using to make a tin can man. I added holes so this guy can have a face! I'll post a photo when I'm done. In the meantime, here are a few of the others I've made along with some other found object art.

Are you having a good summer? Hope so!

Lost Money Experiment and Found Money

This morning I had to mail something I sold on Etsy. I didn't find any money at the post office this time, but when I was walking back to my car I spotted a penny in the street. Yay!

Then I went to the grocery store. While walking in I saw a little stone bench and decided to put a penny there (not my found penny!) and see if anyone would pick it up while I was in shopping. I set a shiny penny on the far edge of the bench then went in the store. 

When I came out it was still there! Granted I was only in the store for 9 minutes, but a woman was sitting on the bench! She could have easily snatched it up but since she didn't I did!

So my first lost money experiment to see if anyone would find money I "lost" was a fail. I think so many people are preoccupied and just don't look.

And yes, I picked it up, acting all surprised to have found a penny!

Found 12 Cents in a Change Tray

Today I went to the grocery store for a few things and found a dime and two pennies in the chute of the change tray. They were sitting there waiting to fall so I just nudged them a bit and down they came. Mine, all mine!

And yay! This found money puts me over $27 found so far this year!

I posed the money next to this gadget that I'll be listing in my Etsy shop. What is it? It's a canning jar lifter

Have you found any money lately?
