My OH collected our new kitchen tiles yesterday. They were worth the tedious search! I love the "rustic" handmade feel to them, the crackle glaze, the little imperfections and colour variations! However, they are not easy to photograph, but I hope you get the gist. They are a sea green/blue colour (don't know how else to describe them, their name "Moselle" doesn't really help!)

No crafting for me this weekend :( but the kitchen is progressing! After waiting in all day yesterday for the plasterer - and missing out on going to my niece's 2nd birthday party - he showed up this morning! Kitchen now a lovely pink plaster colour, which is a vast improvement on the yellow it was painted before! OH has also filled the ceiling and re lined it ready for painting. So, progress has been made!

  1. oh love the tiles carole and doesn't the pink of the plaster look great, all fresh and clean..

    I love the waiting of it drying too, the different shades of pink, then you paint it, (or tile) and cover it up, lol...

    have fun
