Lucky Penny

Canada has discontinued the penny and I've been finding pennies that people have cast away feeling, I guess, that they are now worthless. I still like to think of them as "lucky", so I pick them up and take them home.

In honour of the penny, and on St. Patrick's Day, I name this little one, Lucky Penny.

Naming Day Portrait

Find a Penny, pick her up, all day long you'll have good luck!

Pick Her Up

The whole reason for having a special "Naming Day" was so that I would have an excuse to make a fancy christening/blessing style outfit. LOL

Back of the dress

I made the whole outfit without a pattern, designing as I went. It took hours and hours -- well -- DAYS really!

Penny

By the time I took this last picture Penny was getting tired and was ready for bed.

Beautiful and a perfect name for your little girl. My nan always used to sing that rhyme to me as well as others to do with Pennies lol!
