  1. Yes! I was on a walk with about 20 of my kiddos at Riverbottom. We were walking along the river and a student found it in a tree. The token on it was a tree.

    • : ) We loved this turtle. Was just the highlight of our day. If you are ever in the Virginia Beach area and looking for a hair salon come on in, and bring the turtle too! shearblissvb. com and you can schedule online!

  3. I was in Bethel, Maine for Molleyockett festivities and found one on the library steps, it was a peacock. My younger sister then found a butterfly one at the base of a tree and then another, a turtle on the fountain. We will definitely be buying a book or two, I thought this was a lovely advertising idea. We actually assumed they must be from one of the booths and searched it out for awhile.

  4. I left two stones outside the Leland Branch of the Brunswick County Public Library in North Carolina. I left one outside the Monkey Junction Branch of the New Hanover County Public Library. There are two stones waiting for some lucky people at Halyburton Park in Wilmington, NC. There is one stone on the bridge in Hugh McRae Park in Wilmington, NC. I left one outside Panera on Oleander in Wilmington…and tomorrow I will leave one on the boardwalk at the beach in Carolina Beach, NC. Good luck everyone!

  6. I was getting my hair done in Charleston, IL at Libby’s salon. I like to snoop around to see what’s new, and I found this stone with a snake on it. I happen to like snakes, non-poisonous ones, of course. In Lithuanian culture, they symbolize luck.

  7. II was visiting my Sister in Olympia, Washington. On Friday, we were at the pier area and my Sister found it at the foot of ‘The Kiss’ statue. But it was meant for me and we both knew it. At first, holding it horizontally, I thought she was a mermaid, but now I see that vertically, it’s not a fin but roots growing into the ground with a vine growing up around her. I was thrilled but didn’t know if I should take it. I’m so glad I did. Thank you! I have 2 grandsons who will be receiving your book at Christmas!

    • You found Moira – Fate from the book! She’s the rarest one to find, as she was intended as a gift for the people placing the stones. Some decided to give them away. Thanks so much for letting me know you found her and for buying the book for your grandsons!

      • I was in Bethel, Maine last week at the Molleyockett fair and that is where I found Moira on the used book table. The man I was with who is from Bethel, told me that weekend about his sister who died at the age of 46 and her name was Moira! I looked up your website and will order a book from you. Thank you and I am showing this token to others.

  10. I’m friends with your niece, Sarah, who shared some hints on where to find these beauties. I found a butterfly token on the cannon of a war memorial in downtown Effingham, IL! What a fun treasure to have. Best of luck on the book release – can’t wait to grab a copy for myself!

    • I might have given away her secrets when I posted the pics on FB! So glad you found one – thanks for posting here. In TOKENS AND OMENS, the butterfly token is given for fasting and counteracts the pig omen given for overindulgence!

  11. I found a token outside the post office in Warrenton, VA. it’s a cute lil pig! I was just passing through the main street after dropping something off at the post office. such an inventive way to promote your book.

    • Thanks for letting me know! My niece lives in Warrenton and placed stones for me. The pig is an omen given for overindulgence! That one’s kind of obvious. In the book during the quest, the pig omen becomes a dangerous razorback pig that can be overcome by using a butterfly token.

    • Thanks so much for letting me know! The butterfly stone is one of my favorites too. In the book, they’re given for fasting and counteract the pig omen given for overindulgence! But I like your idea of butterflies as a sign of Promise. My niece set that one out for me – I’ll let her know you’re enjoying it.

  14. Jeri we found the best token in the world!! It has a bee on it!! Even better, to me and my family of 5 GT grads, it is the Georgia Tech yellow jacket. We found it in Wicker Park sitting on a much larger stone off the newly done 606!! Being in Chicago, we couldn’t believe we found an Atlanta symbol all the way up here!!! Love it. I am fighting my kids to keep a hold of it. Now I have to read the rest of this site (and book) to figure out what is going on.

    • Oh, Chris! I love your note! I’m still laughing – thank you! This is so awesome and I’m thrilled that the hornet means so much to you. I believe in serendipity and this certainly fits. To celebrate the release of my book, I had people from all over the country leaving stones for me. The hornet is an omen given for anger in the book. During a quest, the omens become actual threats and the hornet is counteracted by the turtle, given for patience.

      Enjoy and thank you for letting me know you found it!

  17. My son and I went to Jeri Baird’s book signing tonight at Bob’s Bookstore in Charleston, IL. To my delight, I found a beautiful butterfly token in the window as soon as we walked in the door. It was great to see you tonight Jeri. You are amazing. We loved your first book and looking forward to reading your next book. 😊 Did you leave more tokens around Charleston, IL during your visit this week? RJ and his girlfriend want to go scavenger hunting for tokens. I told him maybe she should just sell complete sets of tokens….which he thought that would be a good idea. Keep up the good work. We love ya. Jill

  18. My partner and I found one sitting on a rock in the Uncompahgre River this past weekend on our way from Ouray, CO to Silverton! I felt like it was meant for us to take and keep, but was certain I would look you up to check on your intention for the stone. Such a delight – we were married the Friday before, so this was special.

  19. Super cool. My daughter found one under the antler arches in Dubois, WY. Our family is on a year long vacation traveling across the country in our RV and we are constantly looking for cool rocks and semi precious stones. This was definitely a cool find. I can’t wait to look into the book. Thank you so much!
