I want to tell about the pennies :D For the last few years, we've been finding pennies all over the house, and even in very odd places. I've heard stories about people losing a loved one, then finding a coin, or seeing a butterfly or...any number of certain little weird things. What makes it weird is where you're finding them or how. For instance, last week when Twin was here, I told her I'd found some baby shoes to go with a small picture I'd framed of an old woman looking through a trunk, and holding a pair of baby shoes in her hands. I wanted to put this picture on a shelf, or add pegs to hang my childrens baby shoes, plus some I just collect. Twin said she didn't remember the picture I was talking about, so I reached down beside the china cabinet where I had it between the wall and the cabinet sitting upright. When I pulled it out and handed it across the table to her, a penny suddenly flew right off of it, like it had been thrown. We're sort of getting used to this, but it still made us gasp and say "wow", lol. Then a while later I told her my mop water had gotten cold, so I dumped it out and set the bucket in the tub and made a new batch of hot mop water, and then started to mop the floor. I carried the mop across the room and set it down in the floor. Right away we heard a little clink sound, so I picked the mop up and there underneath it was a shiny new penny. Things like this happen all the time. A really weird incident was last month at the emergency room, when I had to go there for my leg. As I was being wheeled into the x-ray lab, I noticed a bright shiny penny right under the x-ray table! I pointed it out to the lab guy, and all he said was, oh you dropped your penny?" I said' no, it was already there" he says " do you want it?".....well, no, I didn't want it, but I told him someone must be trying to tell one of us something :D Those rooms are scrubbed down and disinfected after every patient, very strange!
Here's a site to read about it.
I finished another fairy in a jar, this one is lavender, my favorite color of the moment :D I had her printed out before the lightning fried my computer, so I'm not sure where she came from. I clipped her out and tinted her hair red and her dress lavender. I tried to make it look like she was sitting on a mound of moss, and she does, but it's very hard to photograph! It looks like her toes are curled:D
The ribbon came out of a pair of pajamas; don't worry, they have elastic,too! There's a penny in there, some bird feathers from my sisters blue bird, and some silvery-white trim from an old angel ornament. I tied a silver butterfly charm, and a silver heart with blue rhinestones to the top. And some little flowers glued to the other side. This one looks SO much better in real life, I couldn't get a good photo at all! I love making my little fairies with red hair and violet eyes!
Check it out..I stopped at the Goodwill for a few minutes the other day and found this baggie of pink flowers for .99 cents.
And these two double-matted fairy prints for .99 cents each,too. On the back you can see they came from Michael's and were originally $8.99 each. I have future plans for those :D
Everybody have a good Saturday/yard sale day!
