Tile Shopping vs.3

My name is Sara and I might be a tile addict. We're back to pick up our ordered samples. Maggie has now named the lions and wants to take them home.

We are taking advantage of some beautiful (ie: warm) weather for November and we are building a fence! And with that, clearing brush. I had this image of W of his Texas ranch clearing brush with secret service men standing around, talking to their wrists. It wasn't quite as glamorous at our ranch.

That's me! Laying out the horizontal pieces

From tigers to lions!! Maggie and I went early-morning (note the hair do) tile shopping. Maggie was supposed to help me with backsplash tile, but she ended up spending most of her time with the marble lions. I'll put up the backsplash options later!
