Today I took out the same glass dishes, grabbed a couple candles and my bag of “river rock” from Michael’s Summer Clearance Sale – I believe after all was said and done, I got the river rock for $1.79. Now, if I had had me a handy river, I could have gotten it free, but alas, all I have me is a plot of teeny land in a subdivision.
