ABC Wednesday: T is for tile


The tile I used when I remodeled my bathroom was also used for a landing at the bottom of my deck stairs leading to the garden.

I have a bathroom garden, so named because I created it years ago when the remodeling crew killed the grass beside my driveway where they tossed the debris before carting it off. I have assorted tile for edging which a friend gave me when it was left over from various projects. The bathroom garden is surrounded with tile, rocks, and other things. The shot below was taken in May of this year because at the moment that garden has gone to sleep for the winter.

I like these tile tables but they are all too expensive for me to buy.

WOW! The bathroom tiles have survived very well outdoor.

Tiles can be so beautiful and ornate or dull as dishwater and outdoor table and chairs just make me long for summer and hotter climates. Sigh.

Tile is a lovey accent to any room, floor or garden.

In our little home, I have white tile in my kitchen, and it always looks clean and fresh....

That bathroom tile is awesome as are those tables - there's probably a ton of time invested in each one, hence the cost!

I like your pathway very much and I too would love one of those tables, but I had better learn to make one myself as they are expensive.. thank you for looking for things in my cloud post. I just love looking up and I can see what you are seeing also, but it is interesting to hear other people's views also....Michelle
