I posted about making a backsplash in my kitchen using pennies. Both CatWoman and Lasflores took time out of their lives to look for specific pennies and mailed them to me!

My family was all, "Who is this from?" So I explained and it still didn't make sense to them. "You mean...you don't know them?"

Thank you both for being so kind. I really appreciate it.

That's fantastic. I'm constantly humbled and amazed by the overwhelming support I receive on PT (for both small things and large thing).

I still remember how people rallied around me last year when Mason spent 5 days in doggie ICU. it was truly heartwarming.

I love this!

My DD calls you my imaginary friends. Yet, she has met at least 3 of my PT friends.

My boyfriend was shocked about the ornament exchange. Same. You dont know these people?

Totally awesome.

Do you need more pennies?

Totally true! I have PT friends that I absolutely consider "real" friends, even though we have not met

And I have liked all the PTers I have met in person. Even the super shady ones who like the Mets.
