Gum Ball Machine Gone Nuts!

Gum ball machines hold a very dear spot in my heart.  Not only because they remind me of being a kid asking Mom & Dad for a penny, but because my brother loved them and I lost him too soon (story here).Gum ball machines are also very colorful, fun,
and versatile in any home.But do they always have to be red?…

Don’t be afraid of paint.

Or using something it really isn’t meant for.

It creates fun.

My girls love this and I am sure their friends will too.
Don’t forget to have a full stock of pennies.
(note jar at bottom)
By the way…2 nuts come out at once.
So, it’s 2 for 1!
Did you know Pistachios are good for you?
Fiber, protein and just a handful fills me up fast and helps my blood sugar get back to normal.
They are also the lowest calorie nut.My Grandma, Nano, always had nuts under her chair and would give me a handful as a child.There are allergic reactions to consider,
so if you happen to have a family member
that has a nut allergy,
gum balls would fit just fine 🙂
