Studio Penny Lane A Penny from Heaven Poem Jar in Amber – Price $30 ($24 after promo code)
The holidays are full of joy with family and friends, and we always take a moment to share some of our favorite memories of those who are no longer with us.  In our family, our grandparents on both sides were amazing people, full of fun and mischief, and though not related to each other, both “sides” had a strong connection to lucky pennies that continues to be a big part of everyone in our family. When I found Studio Penny Lane and their gorgeous apothecary jars, I finally had the perfect way to capture that connection and share it with my family (and you)! In addition to the Penny/Pennies from Heaven jars, Studio Penny Lane offers other great apothecary jars in both amber and clear styles, glassware including mason jars, tumblers, coffee mugs, and gorgeous jewelry, including customizable order options.

A bit of my own history…

As kids, our paternal grandfather loved bringing us on adventures with his metal detector. We thought it was magic, especially when we discovered one of his favorite coins, the wheat penny, also known as the “Lincoln Cent” or, as our grandfather so eloquently called them, “toilet seats” for the pattern the wheat made around the sides of the penny!  Over 20 years since his passing, we always keep an eye out “wheaties” and whenever one finds its way to us, even to this day, we always take a moment to think of him and our wonderful times together.

Our maternal grandmother didn’t need a metal detector – she was a “found money” divining rod on her own. I can’t even place a number on the memories I have of her finding coins (and even dollars from time to time), but she gave us that same sense of magic with her uncanny ability to be in the right place at the right time with found money.  Since her passing, whenever we come across found money, we always say “thank you, Nana!” and smile.

All of our grandparents were so loving and generous, and even when struggling financially, would not have hesitated to help out someone else in need. While my kids were too young to know their great-grandparents before their passing, they have “inherited” both the internal metal detection ability with lucky pennies, and the same generosity of their grandparents. Without being asked, the kids started putting the found coins into a fundraising or collection basket if there is one nearby.

When I saw the Studio Penny Lane Pennies from Heaven poem apothecary jar and the A Penny From Heaven apothecary jar, I knew I had a perfect holiday gift for each of the kids this year.  From now on, we’ll bring home each of the found coins and collect them in their jars and each time the jars are full, the kids can choose a cause or non-profit that they’d like to donate the funds to.

A bit about Studio Penny Lane…

Studio Penny Lane was founded by Laurie Wilson, who, after the loss of a dear friend who she considered her own “Penny from Heaven”, was inspired to follow her dreams and passion to make a difference in the world around her and to promote a global educational Movement fostering Mindful Awareness for children.

Per the Studio Penny Lane website, “the goal is to positively reset the direction of how we teach our children by eliminating patterns of negativity, fear and even helplessness, and replace them with the tools to love without condition, dream courageously, and recognize and nurture each child’s true gifts. Our intention is to empower youth to create positive change in their own lives and ultimately their families, schools, communities and the world. Studio Penny Lane was created in memory and in honor of the Morales family may this shed some light on an unspeakable tragedy. One penny, one child, one thought at a time.”
