Holy cow! I just found out what the granite counter tops will cost. I think I'll just glue twenties to the counter and be done with it.
I've always been a pragmatic soul buying name brands when it made sense (except for those designer sandals a few summer back but they were red--who doesn't want a pair of red Italian sandals) but just as happy with a bargain if it made more sense so why am I willing to fork out that kind of dough. Have I been seduced by the media to think I really need this stuff? I love to bake but could I roll pastry on a plastic sheet over tile and be happy? How to decide?
