I have mentioned before about my penny findings which tend to occur most days - a 1p here, a 2p there, and in the evening I pop them in Jacob my groovy red owly purse for safe keeping.
To return to on a rainy day and pay for a flight to the Bahamas.

The other day I was chilling in Pound Land (oh, if only there were a Penny Land...) and spotted a penny. In a very charitable manner I suggested my friend pick it up for herself to which she answered 'eeer Bella that's like SO dirty' and left it there.
What? I was horrified. Reject a penny because it's unclean?? I've never heard anything like it.

First few months of penny picking.
HELLO new car.

 Through my penny picking I made a new chum - Penny Boy. We've had a number of penny related communications and most recently I made him the one & only 'ONE PENNY CD' which he's apparently been rockin' out to like there's no tomorrow.

I am very keen on music & sahweet tunes, so thought I'd share some particular favourites with Penny Boy and with you. Some old and some new.

The ONE PENNY CD playlist:

1. Intro - The XX
2. Silver Lining - Rilo Kiley
3. Fake Empire - The National
4. Modern Man - Arcade Fire
5. Chan Chan - Buena Vista Social Club
6. Here Comes the Blackout - Stornoway
7. Zebra - Beach House
8. What's it in For? - Avi Buffalo
9. I Feel Better - Hot Chip
10. Postcards from Italy - Beirut
11. Summertime Clothes - Animal Collective
12. Heartbreaker - MSTRKRFT
13. Vesuvius - Sufjan Stevens
14. This Modern Leper - Frightened Rabbit
15. Piazza, New York Catcher - Belle & Sebastian

Avi Buffalo. Your 2011 summertime album please. Seriously. It's ideal.


  1. my goodness - a new car or a trip may take quiet awhile to save up for on pennies! here's hoping you find a bigger coin every now and then! (i found a dollar bill on the ground downtown tonight (which is actually weird because i live in canada and we don't have dollar bills!)
