I sorta wish I hadn't gone to the "Restore"..recycled building supply warehouse...I was only looking for a few pieces of plain white tiles. I wanted to make a small mural, by using porcelain paint on them, then firing them in the kiln and putting a simple wood frame around it.

but.....along the way, in there, I spotted the shelves of grout...so many bags and bags of it.
a sale going on with supplies..
50#...$3
25#...$2
10#...$1
I bought 4 of the 10# bags but this morning, I was wondering if maybe I should go back and pick up a few more.
but where am I going to stuff them?
in the linen closet?..where one whole shelf has part of my collection of oil lanterns...
there's not a single towel, sheet or any linens in there!

it's tempting, though.....
I wish I was just pumping out the mosaics but that just isn't the case.
and there's the county fairgrounds, that are having a huge, huge sale/rummage/garage/yard...I'm for sure staying away from that!..I'd get myself in trouble there...

it's only 10am...I have some decisions to make. dammmmit.

LOL It sure does take a lot of restraint to pass up a good deal when you find one. I have done it a few times. Sometimes I'm ok with it, others I could kick myself for not buying the good deal. Decisions, decisions, oh my. Can't help you with this one.
