|The purple paper stash|
I was pleased with the flat bottomed marbles. I expected to get the small ones (even though I think they're too small). Then I found these. They're about 1.75 inches across and not perfectly round. I think they have a little character to them more than the smaller ones. Apparently, glass is sold by the pound. There were giant bags of small marbles for $6.99. These bags were something like $2.59 and there are approximately 18-20 in each little bag.
Here are Sassy's first few pieces (purple):
And these are Hens' (green):
They're branching out now and trying colors that aren't their favorites. I asked what who they're going to give these to and they both looked stricken. "We have to give them away??!!!?"
