Found $1.30 in Change Here, There, and Everywhere, Well, not everywhere

I've been a slacker. I haven't updated this blog since March 6. What is that? Almost two weeks? Sorry! 

In that time I found $1.30 in change. Just today I found the most of any day in the past two weeks:  57 cents! All dimes and pennies. It's so strange when that happens, but I found five dimes and seven pennies. Today I found the money in drive through lanes, parking lots, and the floor of a couple stores. 

And here's a picture of one of the finished nightstands that I was painting last time I posted. I ended up giving them each a good coat of paint on the flat surfaces (copper on top and blue on the lower surface). I like 'em! I'm using one as a microwave stand and the other in the bathroom. I haven't really stored anything in the bathroom one yet, but plan to keep wash cloths and hand towels in it, I think. And I'll find a pretty to put on top. The tissue box was just handy!

I used this poly sealer to seal the paint once I was done and liked how easy it went on. 

Have you found any money lately? Do share!
