Penny’s Tips- Volume 5

Hi everyone! I finally get to give another one of my tips. My tip this week is to use a penny to solve a dispute. For example, I want this box and so does Millie. I will flip you for it Millie.

Heads I win, tails you lose.

Works every time. I always win.

Happy Hanukkah to our Jewish friends!

Penny’s Tips Volume 4

Hi everyone! Welcome to my latest installment of Penny’s Tips. This is sort of a shared post with mom, it is her idea, but I improved on it.

She made an Advent calendar for us using a mini muffin pan that has 24 slots. Dad cut out the circles from scrapbook paper and she numbered them. She puts treats in for us for each day of December up until Christmas.

I think I will clean out the first slot while I am posing 🙂 She makes this for us because the only Advent calendars around here have a piece of chocolate for every day.

If you want to make one for a child, but don’t want to have candy in all the slots, you can add stickers or PENNIES! ( see slot 2). And that is my tip for today.

We are joining Create with Joy’s Inspire me Monday’s Blog Hop. There are already over 200 holiday ideas linked up so be sure to check it out.

Penny’s Tips Volume 3

Hi everyone! Did you miss me? My mean mom keeps pushing me off for silly things like reviews and Halloween.

My tip today is to use a penny to replace a missing checker. My folks have this apple checker board and the apples are fun to roll around so they do need to use this tip sometimes. I thinks they should give me all the apples to play with and they can use pennies.

 

 

Penny’s Tips Volume 2

Hi everyone! Before I give you my tip of the week, I want to wish my folks a Happy 25th Anniversary!

Now it is time for my tip. As you know, my folks went to Maine last Tuesday to meet Teddy’s wonderful folks. All they brought back for me was a penny. A flattened one at that.

  It says Kittery on it and has a duck stamped on it. A lot of tourist places have machines that you put 50 cents in and a penny then you turn a crank and it turns the penny into a little souvenir. My tip is to look for one when you are traveling that way you only spend 50 cents on a souvenir and it won’t even take up much space.

One more thing–yesterday, Joanie told you about the movie mom was in and some of you commented on planning to watch it. Thank you, we appreciate that, but do want to warn you there is some bad language and the start may have something that turns you off of the entire movie, but please stay with it. Mom is the comedy relief and quite proud of her small performance including rolling off the bed 🙂

I am off to go play with our new Halloween scratcher that arrived today . We won it from Summer-thank you! I hope I can make Brody get out of it. We will show more photos of it on Thursday along with the other fun toys Summer sent us too.

 

Penny’s Tips

Hi everyone! Penny here and I am starting a new feature called Penny’s Tips.

I will give you a tip of something you can do with a penny. Now please don’t go telling me in the comment section any tips because I already have 11 tips ready and I don’t want to have to go all tortie on you with tortitude.

My first tip is to add some to cut flowers because the copper will act as at as an acidifier preventing the growth of bacteria.

Pennies made before 1982 are made of 95 % copper and those made 1983 and later are mainly zinc with just a light coat of copper.

Please note these dahlias are poisonous to cats so I just posed for this photo and mom put them back in the dining room ( no cats zone) . For the ASPCA  list of more poisonous plants , click here.
