100 things are easy to think of, but hard to imagine in one craft. I recently became the owner of a box of doll arms (impulse bid on eBay that won). I had this wooden purse, a thrift store find, that cried out to become a shrine, but no inspiration. Then I found a penny on the ground and it all burst into fruition.

But I had to find 99 more pennies. I searched my car, the change bowl, the laundry area, the bottom of my purse and came up with 69 pennies. What? Only 69. So I started designing, gluing, thinking of things I could buy that would give me pennies.
Luckily I finally found the big change jar and 31 more pennies joined. Now I am finding pennies everywhere!

Enjoy "Pennies from Heaven" and pass those pennies forward.

I don't know why I'm just now finding this. What a great idea for a shrine. Everyone loves finding pennies from heaven!

Oh, this is so cool! I adore pennies and was so crushed when they stopped being made in Canada. Now when I find them they really are an extra special thing. Thanks for the reminder Smiley.
