Found 83 Cents Today and Made Some Prim Mug Rugs

This morning I took out my trash and found a penny in front of the dumpster. Yay! I was plenty happy with that, but there's more!

I just love finding lots of money! I posed my found money next to the primitive mug rugs I made today. I listed them for sale in my Etsy shop if you want to take a look.

Hope you have a good weekend and find some money!

  4. Wow! That's an impressive haul. Imagine if we all just looked where we were stepping!
