every once in a while I have the great good luck to be in the right place at the right time
and if I'm really, really lucky, and a little bit smart, I'll recognize the moment for what it is and seize upon it
I did that a few months back when Deb from The Mosaic Magpie admired a book I had made and offered to buy it
I thought it would be way more fun to do a swap....
and she had been making these amazing stitched "pebbles"
so I suggested it, and she, being a like-minded, good luck sort of gal, agreed.
lucky me again
this is the stunning little pebble she sent me
all those tiny, perfect stitches
all those perfect subtle colours
Deb also included this beautiful necklace
some heavenly doilies
and much, much more
lovely, thoughtful gifts!
I guess now I'm going to have to be even smarter about being lucky...
the Government of Canada just minted the last of the pennies this past week
pennies will be no more in Canada
apparently it costs more to make a penny than a penny... kind of an odd thing really
no more pennies means no more lucky pennies
I wonder if they thought of that before they did the penny in....
no more lucky pennies
oh sure, they'll be in circulation for a while, but eventually they will all be pulled, just like the $1 bill was
and finding a lucky penny will be even more special
I've had a few over the years, like the one pictured above
found in the airport coffee shop after checking in, on our way to France a year ago
and deposited back on the floor of the same coffee shop upon our return
now that was a lucky penny...
I think I'll go buy a few rolls, to tuck away, just to share the wealth a little
for a little while longer
