Found 11 Cents!

Today I ran out to the library (had to get the DVD "I Stink" since my 3-year-old grandson is coming and he loves I Stink!) and on the way out, I found a penny!

So I set the found money on the new Penzey's Spices catalog (the money's there, it's just hard to see) and Scarlett posed with the found money. She's such a good girl.
