The house was a dream for 30 years. After numerous failed attempts, I gave up.
That's when the Penny Angels and a Higher Source took over. For over 3 years during the construction the Angels provided a penny EVERY day non stop. (See Penny Tales Blog). Their way of saying "Just Take it One Day at a Time and Keep Trusting!"
The Penny Palace now stands as a symbol of miracles and love.
The Construction Phase has been completed, but the "COINcidences" and Tales from the Palace continue...

For over a year Doc and I have been
investigating and getting quotes for various window coverings in the Grand
Room.The sunshine is incredibly intense
in that room and almost blinding at times while working at the dining
We finally compromised and settled
on interior roller shades.Today Daniel
came to do the installation.He thought
it would be a typical 30-minute install for two shades.Nothing at the Penny Palace is typical!Just getting the 24 ft. extension ladder into
position took a bit of time.The job
took three times as long as Daniel expected, but he smiled and was “an Angel”
throughout the process.
The motorized shades did not have
the brackets as typical shades do.Good
thing Doc was home.He cut pieces of
lumber and drilled holes in those to work as support members.(He is an Angel too).All we needed were EIGHT 4” screws.No problem.We went to look at our supply in the garage.Rats!Last
weekend we left our boxes of screws at the cabin where we were screwing around on
the decks.We managed to find only TWO
I was planning to drive to the
hardware store for more screws, but that would take at least 30 minutes.I was nudged to call Neighbor Craig.I asked if he had TEN 4” screws.(I figured a few extra just in case we needed
them).Craig said he would check in his
garage and call me right back.A few minutes
later the doorbell rang.It was “Angel” Craig
with his outstretched hands saying, “These are the only SIX 4” screws I could
find.”His SIX, plus our TWO made for
EXACTLY the Eight we needed!
