Keep In Touch #76

Hi friends, 
I just got in from cleaning up the tile mess. 

Figuring out the configuration was hard. 
In the end I felt like we had to start in the back corner. 
This will be under the vanity. 

This is how I left things last night at about five. 

I'm a messy tiler. 

Never say never but I will never take on a tile job again. 
12 by 24 inch tiles are pretty but they are horrendous to deal with. 
I spent about 6 hours on it yesterday. 
I thought today's cuts would take about an hour. 
I have been working since 11:30. 
Four cuts took me 6 hours. I kept making stupid mistakes. 
I will grout tomorrow, if I can stomach being on my hands and knees again. 
We left the show as is. At some point we may redo it but in the meantime I don't want to spend anymore money. 
I don't know how but a $100 floor can quickly turn into a $5,000 job. 
Now for our features. 
I feel like I owe you a few since I forgot the party last week. 

Look at these flags from Follow The Yellow Brick Home. 

This sled turned flag by A Day Of Small Things.

Now for the link up.
I'm off for a dip in my pool.
