Remember Happiness with Penny Candy



Earlier this week, we teachers spent a day without students exploring museums and historical sites in our city. One museum had a walk-in display of an antique corner drug store. That reminded me of the penny candy counter aeons ago. An indulgence I started at age seven, and it continues to this day. Chocolate, anyone?


Unity Kit of the month: August Remember Happiness
Cardstock: SEI's Poppy collection. Ribbon: SEI too.

Ink matches Unity, of course! SU Taken with Teal and Tempting Turquoise.
Markers: Copic and atyou Spica turquoise for added glitter.

Very cute card!
My FIL owns a small-town gas station/convenience store, and he still stocks several varieties of penny candy....not the big sticks like they used to, but smaller...and still only a penny. My kids think it's awesome to find a penny and know they can spend it at Grandpa's store!
