Tomorrow we are celebrating Mother’s Day with my mom.
She has stage 4 metastatic lung cancer. It is probable that this
is her last Mother’s Day before her qi moves to it’s next vessel.
I purchased a gratitude bottle for her in Baltimore today.
She is going to love it. But we don’t want to give a bottle
without gratitude already in it! The eight of the children and
grandchildren who will be with her are busy writing things that
she has done or said for which we are grateful. There are no
rules. Serious, heartfelt, funny, and bizarre are all welcome.
As many as we want! One of mine will be that she said yes when
I asked to bring two of my summer camp zoo’s raccoons home with
us at the end of camp.
Each of us will read from our gratitude
notes at the table, put them in her bottle and then make it the
centerpiece of our gathering table at her apartment. I hope that
she adds to the bottle, but that’s not for me to suggest. I just
wanted to take a moment to express gratitude for your creation
and it’s help in our journey! Thank you. DG
UPDATE FROM DG!!!
The bottle is sitting in the middle of the table stuffed with colorful scraps of paper. Some were read aloud to her as they were deposited. Some were placed with a moment of silence. Later, the adults sat around for a couple of hours with happy and sad memories being shared between sips of the good wine.
I love the necklace I bought one for my daughter and one from me. My beloved mother and dog send me Pennie’s from heaven every day <3 ~RF
I am buying this for a friend. She told me a story about how she prayed God would help her get pregnant. She and her husband tried so many times – no luck. One day she was walking and found six pennies on the ground. She took that as a sign from God. Shortly thereafter, she was pregnant. Her TWINS are now 6 years old. A friend told me about your site and I thought of her immediately. ~SC
Ordering this necklace for a neighbor who lost her husband, and a child who lost her dad. I received one of these and I am better because of it.-L
Just wanted you to know my 9 yr old granddaughter got her
penny necklace for her birthday last Friday. When she got it, she called and said “this is the best present I’ve gotten”. I had given my daughter in law one in March and that’s when my granddaughter wanted one. These are the most precious gifts. Thank you for making this so very special. ~KW
I just want to thank you for this beautiful piece. I saw an ad
for the penny and feather together and it felt kismet. After
losing both parents very unexpectedly my dad has consistently
left pennies everywhere and before my mom passed of brain tumors a few months ago I asked her to show me feathers as her sign that she is here. This piece will always hold a place in my heart.
Thank you so much and for the beautiful piece of art and the
beautiful and thoughtful packaging. ♥️ ~B
Absolutley perfect in every way! I purchased this jar for my sister on her Birthday and it brought tears to her eyes. We lost our Dad 9 years ago in 2012- her penny was stamped with the year 2012. Pennies are from Heaven and the proof is clear. Thank you for such a beautiful gift. It brought tears to our eyes and will be held dearly forever.- D
My cousin got the penny keychain from you back in December and it brought me to tears when I opened it. Just wanted to remind you how special your pieces are! -N
I received my daughter's mini Penny necklace today, along with a Valentine's gift. I'm blown away by you're kindness, as well as the story of Penny Lane. I will be sure to pay your kindness forward. I'm literally overwhelmed with gratitude!
My uncle passed away a couple of years ago & we find pennies all the time! Just one single penny in the most random of places. I started finding them when I was pregnant, so much so that we almost named our daughter penny! I LOVE your store, I have the petite silver penny necklace & I wear it every day with an A charm for my daughter August. I got this necklace for my cousin (his daughter) for her birthday.~D
I know 1943 is s a unique year, also the birth year of the love of my life, soulmate, that passed away 2 weeks ago. He wore a carved 1943 penny on a necklace. I would always play with it and every birthday, Christmas, Valentine's, I would ask if he was giving it to me. Since he never gave it to me, I can wear one to remind me of him everyday. His wasn't shiny either, so I'm okay with anything.
I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful product. A year ago we lost my mother in law. She and I were extremely close. A friend gifted me one of your penny necklaces. I cried when I readd the card. My daughter saw it and sobbed with me.
For Christmas my daughter asked for a penny necklace and my son gifted it to her. Shea was thrilled. Shea said its’s small enough she can wear it while playing softball and grandma will be with her. So I just wanted to thank you. S
Received, AND I LOVE THEM! My dad passed 10/23/2020 (not from covid thank God), but he has been sending me pennies ever since! me and my daughters will cherish these <3
So glad I stumbled upon your post on Insta. S
Received my necklaces today and I am very pleased and impressed with the handling of my order. Placed the order on Monday, on a whim and fully not expecting to receive it until after Christmas, but they were delivered today. Your packaging is even impressive!! Thank you so much, the necklaces will be an added little bonus for my daughters this year and I will definitely order from you again. T
This ray of sunshine got her first necklace and apothecary jar, a gift from a loving grandpa. Hope for our future!
My husband and I lost our son six years ago to stillborn. He is our forever angel and we miss him every day. I found your jewelry at T.J. Maxx and immediately purchased it because every time we go out as a family, my husband and our 2 living son’s, we find a penny. It’s never a coincidence, it’s Ty saying Hi and reminding us he’s always with us.
We have a penny jar we put all these pennies we found over these years and will never stop believing in Angels and the signs they sen from above. Thank you for making beautiful, meaningful jewelry! ~S
Thank you for offering this! I’m sending this gift to my not so little sister...teenager now! Our father passed away two months after she was born so I’m excited to send her something in remembrance of him on her birthday :)
Thanks and I’m so looking forward to receiving this stuff. After my dad passed away in 2011, I got a heart with wings tattoo and on the 1 yr anniversary of his death, I started finding pennies. The necklace I ordered couldn’t be any more perfect and meant to be. S
My 4 yr old granddaughter gave me the penny necklace as a gift.
She said she hugged it all night and then the angels came and took
it to heaven so it could get more hugs from family angels. Then
the angels brought it back and told her to kiss it all over to
smoosh the love in so it wouldn't run out while I was still
wearing it . Not sure if she has a healthy imagination or has
been touched by an angel! Thank you. M
I just received my order today. My mom lives by the penny from heaven poem ever since my grandpa passed a few years ago. I purchased a necklace and apothecary bottle with the poem on it. When I gave it to her today she cried because she loves it so much. I just wanted to say thank you! I got a necklace myself and I love it. Truly inspiring! ~Rachel
I came across your site on accident truly. But, I couldn’t be happier that I did. Pennies from heaven are something that happens to me often. So wearing one on a necklace only seems right. ~K
Oh my - thank you for the prompt service and my extra gifts - that was
so thoughtful! I very much appreciate all the help you gave me Wishing
continued health for your business as we move forward. ~R
I just wanted to thank you so much for the beautiful necklaces.
I ordered two, one for my mom and one for my sister.
My grandfathers nickname was Penny and this was the perfect gift.
I was so surprised to find an additional thank you gift of
another necklace. You’re an amazing company. Thank You!, Lisa
Y’all were so great and made me a custom bracelet so it was exactly what I wanted and you did it so quickly as well thank you so much!
Also wanted to just share;
When I found studio penny lane I knew I had to have a piece from you. My grandmother passed away and shortly after we found out we were pregnant with a surprise baby who was named Penny as we think of her as a gift from my grandma in heaven.~T
I just wanted to say thank you for the sweetest package I’ve ever received. Not only is your product amazing but your message to go with it blew me away.
You also added a special gift for me when what I bought was for
my mother who is grieving her mother and I couldn’t be more
thankful. Thank you for such a beautiful heart and breathtaking
gifts. Sending good energy and love. ~D
My Grandfather passed away in November. He was a passionate educator and avid coin collector. I’ve been trying to find the right thing to gift to my Aunt and Father to remember him by - he loved sentimental things like this- and this is perfect. Thank you! ~K
Love the emails - my sister bought me a penny from heaven two years ago & I lost it after having a remodel done - found the box & ordered a new one. Anxiously awaiting its arrival. Thank you so much ~ B
Message:I have 2 older brothers and I’m the youngest. I’ve taken care of my mom ( in my home) for the last 14 years. She is on her death bed but we have joked with her for the past month that she has a gold and silver dollar ( the boys) but I’m her copper penny😭
I will wear this and hold it close to my heart for years to come B
Thank you. Keep the sun in your heart. Your warm words of kindness (mindful Monday and your mission statement) continue to be inspirational and inspiring. I send them around the world to be shared out even further. I am attempting to empower women from all walks of life. Your words have been doubly embraced in Kenya, where a piece of my heart resides. My dadas (sisters) there forever need a soft touch reminder of their value to life. N
For the unexpected Death of my 15 year old sister. Thank you for making these. If all is well, I want to purchase for my mom, 2 other sisters. Thank you for this thoughtful product. A.
I seriously cant wait to get my necklace, my nieces name is Penelope (Penny) and she passed away 3 years ago, I saw your product and instantly started crying. I cant wait to wear it and honor her Thanks so much for getting back to me I really appreciate it!
Finding your company made me so happy. My mom and I both talk about this all the time for her parents/my grandparents after they passed. I know my mom will love this, and think of her parents every time she sees it. Thank you! M
My grandma had told us all the pennies from heaven story when we were growing up. So it was a perfect mother's day gift for my mom with my grandma's birth year on it to celebrate her life and legacy. My mom cried. The order shipped fast and email communication was smooth and efficient. I am also glad that order tracking was available. This necklace has beautiful sentiment and lots of meaning. Definitely glad that I stumbled upon this company and site.
Thank you so much for my beautiful necklaces and the surprise bracelet. My grandma has stage 4 bone cancer and the one with the cross will be given to her. She has whole heartedly believed her entire life that a penny is sent from heaven from a loved one. I can’t wait to show her this beautiful piece. Thank you, so very much. M
Hello!! How are you?
I’m always looking for ideas of inspiration for my teachers (100 of them) and support staff (50) of them! SO…I go to your studio for them and for personal gifts I give to folks!
Love your message/inspiration and have been in love with pennies for a long time for that very reason…it has caused me to pause and remember my angels that are looking out for me in heaven…or to realize what a special memory they are and how lucky I was to be a part of their journey on this planet regardless how short!
My dad died when I was 11. That was 40 years ago this year. In that short time (11 years) he had such a huge impact on me and my brothers. Doesn’t matter the length of time you have with someone…but the depth of the experience they give you.
Ok…that is my story!
Thanks for making my life a little more reflective and full of grace.
Thank you so much for a quick and kind reply. I really do appreciate that. I love your company and the brand around it, and I'm glad Instagram showed be your ad. A
I had placed an order that had gotten mixed up that you guys took care of and I just wanted to let you know that my mom loved her necklace. It brought her to tears and she hasn't taken it off. I wanted to thank you for your product, your prompt shipping and being able to rectify the mistake so quickly.
Thank you again for everything. You guys have a great company and I'm happy I stumbled upon it!
Wow!! Thank you so much! This has got to be the greatest customer service I've ever had, and I mean that! Im being induced tomorrow with my first daughter, we named her Penny! A few days after deciding her name your studio popped up as a suggestion on my Instagram and I couldn't believe it. Then, reading all about your business and the sweet Penny from Heaven poem, there's no way I couldn't get myself a couple of your pieces! Thank you, again, for such top notch customer service and such a wonderful experience! Kindest regards!
My daughter sent me a Penny Love Letter for my birthday. The little poem written on the paper the necklace was attached to was very sweet. They sealed the tiny envelope with a wax penny seal, that made it even better. Now I am sending three out to my daughters and my lifelong friend! Makes a super heartfelt gift. I will definitely send more out as gifts to family and friends.
Love it ★★★★★
Thank you so much for everything!! I was never a necklace person but I saw the penny necklace and had to get it. I never knew about a nickel allergy before. I’m a beyond excited and I want to cry because you made my day! Thank you so much!! Future purchases will definitely be happening again!! C
Ok thank you. It’s for my son which is why I think it’s way too flashy. He and my grandmother were very close and she always gave him pennies every time she saw him even through college. She saved every single penny for him for 20 years! I had to get him this necklace when I saw it
Purchased this for my tiny granddaughter, Penny, who went to heaven in March, much too soon. Her original due date is coming up, and I thank you for your lovely products that mean so much.
Thank you so much. I appreciate it more than I can say and cannot wait to share my wonderful experience with this amazing company.
We just received the correct necklace. I just wanted to reach out again to say thank you x10000 for being so kind, and quick to send us the correct order. My mom loves this one even more, and we both plan to wear our pennies from Heaven every single day. You guys are amazing and I will recommend you all to everyone I know. Thanks again!
Hello! I just wanted to say thank you for making such a unique,
thoughtful, item. I had purchased one of your mini penny necklaces
at TJ Maxx (of all places!) quite a while ago. I was immediately
drawn to it, as it reminded me of my late father. When I got home that evening, I went to your site and signed up
for emails. I look forward to the Mindful Monday emails - they are
so heartfelt and grounding. Anyway... I'm contacting you today to say "thank you". I've been in a relationship with a man who has been a single father for many (remembrance of dad) and a candle just because we all have to say "Phukit" sometimes. Again, I just wanted to say "thanks". I love all of your items and your mission. Much love and success to you all!
Warm regards. R
and a follow up;
My niece saw your ad and sent it to me saying the penny/feather
necklace reminded her of her deceased grandfather (my father).
He used to save change for her and actually send it to her! I
decided to surprise her with the necklace. She sent me a text
the minute she received it. There were tears. It had a dual
meaning as she also remembers her grandmother saying “see a penny
pick it up and all day long you’ll have good luck!”
My mom (her grandmother) has CoVid 19 and will not survive.
This necklace is a beautiful reminder of our loved ones.
The presentation was beautiful also. Thank you ~namaste
These are for my sister and I. We just lost our father, and only parent, in January to colon cancer. Each day is a struggle but the little messages sent from above mean so much.
I saw the Him/Her Relationship Apothecary Jars in a little shop in Mt. Juliet and thought they would be a great gift that we could include in our all inclusive packages and give to our couples on their wedding day. I am looking forward to looking at your catalog!
Thank you, Barbara
Namaste Donn,I hope this festive season is treating you & your loved ones well.First of all, let me tell you how grateful I am for all the wonderful gifts my daughter & I were able to pass out this year. The level of joy & heartfelt moments were beyond description. But I must share one, it was the reaction of a 5th Grade Teacher, who lost her Dad a few months ago. She opened the box, saw the penny & went hysterical crying & then said, “thank you so very much, I can’t believe this, it is the best gift I have ever been given”! She explained that she had been very depressed that morning & praying for her Dad to give her a sign that he was still with her...she then said, “My Dad told me, when he was dying, that he would always send me pennies from heaven, but that meant nothing to me....until NOW!”Yikes! That was the perfect gift indeed.~J. K.I received a package today, complete with a “Note” that read, “Something told me to buy this for you…” It’s a beautiful gift and one that represents a real tug at my heart, as I lost the love of my life two years ago…was told that the pennies and dimes I was finding at very “interesting” moments were signs of my Tony. At a time, when I was feeling less of his presence, this arrived. So Grateful!~Susan in OhioHoly Cow! Your customer service is amazing. I can’t wait to see my necklace when it arrives!Thanks again!!~JoanneThanks for all of your help! We had a loss in our family and pennies were very special to him. One is for his wife and the other for his daughter. Thanks for giving us this special treasure.~KiraHi Donn,I just want to say thank you again for the incredible customer service that you have shown me through this process. Your company means a lot to me, and they have treated me so well as a customer. I just wanted to thank you again and let you know I will be a customer for life for all the help!~CarissaHi, I would like to thank you for the necklace I purchased for my God-daughter/niece. The presentation was beautiful. She sent me pictures. She was thrilled. She sent me the ad from instagram and said the necklace reminded her of her Grandfather (my father). You customized the poem!On top of it, the necklace arrived on a day when we all got sorry news. My mother (her grandmother) has CoVid 19 and she is not improving. The doctors are making my mother comfortable tonight. This necklace arrived today (or Amber picked up her mail today I should say) and it made her so happy! My mother always stopped to pick up a penny and every time, if the penny was heads up, she said it means good luck.I would like to buy two more necklaces. Can you help?~AntoinetteHello Donn,Thank you so much! I really love your product and the message behind it! It was the perfect gift for my sister! And thank you so much for your wonderful customer service! I will definitely be purchasing more items in the future!!Thank you and stay healthy!Nicole FaucherI can't begin to thank you enough. You genuinely brought me to tears. You didn't know why I bought that necklace, but you understood why my heart needed it. My grandfather passed last July. He was my hero, my guiding light. Last night right after I came across an unexpected picture of the two of us, your ad for the necklace popped up on my IG. Something told me it was meant to be and that was why I initially ordered. Thank you for being an incredible person and lifting my spirits. Sending blessings your way.
Kathy SchroederHello My name is Ashley. First off I would like to say your products are beautiful and so meaningful. I came across your page and starting looking through your website. So many of these products hit so close to home at the moment. I struggle with chronic illnesses that make life a little extra difficult so I love having personal reminders like this that I am loved and thought of. Also my best friend just lost the father of her children in a tragic car accident and I would love to be able to send her a penny from heaven necklace. She has been struggling with missing him and I like to remind her that he is always with her. With that being said I am financially struggling due to my health along with this pandemic. I saw that if someone needs assistance you will
Possibly send a free coupon ? I was wondering if by chance that was possible. I think it’s amazing you not only make these products but also give back to others, not everyone thinks like that in this world. I hope to hear back from you soon.Ashley
I rec'd the mugs last night & I just wanted to tell you, they are simply wonderful. They really are the perfect gifts! I couldn't resist gifting one to myself & I swear my usual cup of joe tasted even better this morning!! I believe it was the positive energy from the mug itself.Blessings of Autumn & Many Thanks,Jane
For my...“Healing Journey”, I created a “Penny Therapy”, collection. One of my favorite heroes is Abraham Lincoln. Him and I have many similarities of life circumstances and qualities. Wherever I find a penny...I tape it in my calendar yearbook on the date I found it. Beside it... I write down if it was on heads or tails, where I found it and the year it was issued. I write the significant event that happened in my life that particular year of the penny.
I’ve been looking for a penny necklace for some time, but haven’t found the perfect one for me, until today Thursday October 31, 2019. The best part of finding the penny necklace...I wasn’t looking for one. I was overwhelmingly joyful inside my heart and it was the only one I saw. It’s beautiful and love wearing it.
Thank you for the unexpected blessing.
VahOur Goddaughter recently passed away and her name is Penelope. Her nickname was Penny so this means so much to us.
Dear Mary,I am happy you got your gift.
I was told specifically not to divulge who sent it to you. No receipt or packing list.I was told it was "A Penny From Heaven" for you.The giver had received a similar gift and thought you could use one.Maybe the best way to repay is to do a similar act for someone you may know who needs a similar dose of inspiration.I hope you enjoy your gift and count yourself blessed you have such an angel looking over you.DonnSPL Ops Guy
I just wanted to say I was gifted one of your necklaces after my grandpa passed away it is very sentimental I have not taken it off since he passed away I've had it on for over a year and a half and I absolutely love it Yes some of the details have worn off but I love it and I love all of your products bless you!
"My eye was caught by 3 of your necklaces while I was at a T.J. Maxx one day. My mother passed away a few years ago. Her name was Penny Lane before she married. I have 2 sisters so I bought all three of them, one for each of us. Unfortunately, my younger sister has been stuck in a depression since mom died. She was the one that found her that awful morning.The necklace I gave her had a feather and a penny and she hasn't taken it off since. Recently, out of all three of us, hers was the necklace to break and the penny cannot be found. Her heart broke because it was her favorite. It seemed to remind her that our mother is in heaven watching down on her. What a comfort to someone who can't escape the image of her mothers lifeless body. I've looked all over at our local stores and could not find a replacement. I'm so glad I saved the package and was able to find your website. I will be making another purchase in hopes of putting a smile back on my sisters face again. Your product is a blessing to us and I just wanted to say thank you!"
"I recently received the penny necklace from my niece and love it - three deaths in my family in less than a year. Am sending the necklace to a friend whose husband passed away unexpectedly. She can think the penny is from him. "
"We own many studio Penny Lane items and love each one. Not only for the significance and meaning behind them, they’re a reminder of my father who is my angel and penny from heaven. And my now 2 year old neice's name is Penelope Lane. We call her Penny. :) I was so happy to have my necklace noticed when recently traveling and the shop owner knew exactly what it was."

"Do you still carry the his/hers gratitude apothecary jars? I am trying to order 2 sets. I give them as engagement gifts to all of my children’s friends."

"On Valentine's day, our daughter Emily died of a sudden heart attack. She left a good husband, and a 12 year old son. Tragically, just a week before, his other grandmother died, and a week later, his other grandfather died. So here we are, what's left to pick up where Emily left off. The pennies my cousin Kathy sent from you are 1979, the year Emily was conceived, and 2006, the year she was given her baby boy. So we know who these were meant for, from our angel. Thanks for your reminder."

"The day I received the 2 BOTTLES instead of 1, my best friend was diagnosed with bone marrow cancer. I will pass on the extra bottle to Linda, who is a wonderful person who will be very grateful! THANK YOU!"

FAITH: THE JEWEL THAT JINGLES THE LOUDEST
"Many people know me by the jingling sound that precedes me from the jewelry I wear. It’s a long standing joke among my girl friends from college. People close to me know that everything I wear has a meaning."
"I wear this SINGLE ANGEL WING as a symbol that we are all one winged angels. But if you put our wings together then we fly. I was introduced to this line by a good friend, Karen who taught me what it meant. She helped teach me that it was okay to receive. And while I don’t believe we are ‘angels’ I do very much believe in the symbolism of human kindness and community. Through Karen, I have recently met the founder and creator of this angel wing necklace (*Laurie with Studio Penny Lane). The heart and spirit of her and her art have become a huge puzzle piece of my story that someday I will share more about."
(Notice here wing necklace and wrap leather bracelet!)
