Off I went, shopping at Menards for plastic clothesline rope and other springy things. They had none--lots of clothes pins but no clothesline rope.
Floating through the garden center area I saw some fun stuff. Menards turns out to always have fun pots and other charming decoration.
I resisted buying things, but it occurred to me to take a picture of the things I liked and perhaps I would go back another time and look for them.
What an excellent way to stem impulse buying, eh?
Wasn't that fun? Free, too.
