Nervous Energy?

This week, we introduced our new baby girl into the world. Ivey Victoria was born on Tuesday morning at 12:04. By Thursday, Ivey and I came back from the hospital and saw that Jeff had managed to tile the fireplace with our improvised tiles. One more step towards that baby room!





I could not be happier with how they look... and the fact that they were such a steal is just icing on the cake!

I LOVE those tiles. I desperately want a carrara marble backsplash. What kind of tile deal did you get?

It's in the post:
"... and finally he came out with a piece of 3 foot long marble in his hand. He couldn't tell if he was being crazy, or if this stuff could be cut into tiles for our fireplace. The marble was a long strip that was 1.75" wide. I liked the look of the marble a lot, and he could cut it with his tile saw into 6" pieces. He couldn't tell if he was nuts or if this was really a good idea. I voted that it was a good idea. So, we left with a trunk load of 3' long marble strips that were intended to be used as thresholds to bathrooms. Ummm... Did I mention that the strips were $2.25? We are getting these tiles for $0.40 each!"
