Found 74 Cents and Finished Painting Rocks

I just got home from a quick walk and look what I found! 74 cents!

I finished painting the rocks and gave them a coat of Mod Podge to shine them up and protect them a bit. To see them when I first started painting them, check out this post.

I'm off tomorrow on a vacation. I hope to find lots and gobs of money! I'm not sure if I'll post until I get home though. We'll see!

Found a 1955 Dime Today Plus More Coins

Today I had to go to the post office and while I was walking back to my car, which I parked across the street, I found these coins:
  • a penny on the sidewalk in front of a store
  • a dime in an empty parking space
  • a penny on the floor at Walmart (yes, I took a shopping detour)
  • and another penny in a parking space at Walmart
Then I drove to the library and then stopped in at the grocery store where I found the 1955 dime in the coin machine. Someone either didn't want it or forgot about it in there. Love finding the older coins.

So, with this 23 cents I found, it puts me over the $20 mark this year and it's not even June yet! 

I posed this found money next to some rocks I'm painting. I'll pose more found money next to them when they're done. (I guess I should say, I hope I find more money!)

UPDATE:  I just found another penny in the street! That makes 24 cents today.

Found Four Coins in Two Drive Through Lanes

Today I braved the heat since it was "only" 89 out and took a walk. I walked through two fast food drive through lanes and here's what I found:
  • a penny in one
  • two pennies and a dime in the other
I was thrilled! 

I posed the money next to some beaded lanyards / badge holders that I have listed in my Etsy shop. One of the blue beads is a cute little ladybug bead. The other lanyard has African Christmas beads. Sweet!

UPDATE!  I just took a short walk (it's really nice out!) and found a beat up penny and a shiny dime, both in the street in different spots! That brings today's found money total to 24 cents!
