My favorite things

We like raindrops on roses too, but sometimes we get materialistic. Sometimes it’s just about writing odes to our favorite stuff.

Two really important words: GLITTER GROUT

Two words. Two really important words: GLITTER GROUT. Seems like you can get them as an additive or pre-made grout. And, in my heart I feel it could range from ’70s dream kitchen to mermaid bathroom, from a unicorn-themed mosaic table, to a TARDIS blue and sparkly starlight grout-ed garden path…
