This is where you’re real glad you paid attention in geometry.

Doorways where you have to leave a 3/4″ slot for a threshold are another joy, fitting tile under doorway frames, etc.

The good news is it looks great. And the wall, formerly pinkish, now plays off that grey/rust and reflective tile (slate pattern) and looks a proper salmon, headed toward orange, which will look great with our cabinets.

We are very happy with the flooring. CoreTec(h) is the brand, Empire Slate, which is ‘waterproof,’ or as waterproof as a floor is likely to be. The table saw is my little toy, and yes, I’m careful. There are many ways to get hurt, one of which, I swear, is to use the ‘safety guides’ the manufacturer provides. A, you let the saw power up and sing a steady note before trying to use it, B, you use the metal/measure/guide clamp rail to assure a straight feed. C, if you aren’t using B, you have a pencil line and you use your ears. If the saw whines, you’re wobbling out of true: listen to the saw and keep it singing a single pure note. D: if you do all the above, it’s not likely to buck or kick back, but if it does, don’t reach to steady it—back up, hands off, and just let the lumber fly where it will. F. And if you have to saw something tiny, use a push-block of wood, not your fingers. G. Wear a mask and safety goggles or glasses. Most injuries come from D, F, and G territory, plus uneven ground, crowded setup, not planning the EXIT of your board with plenty of room, poor lighting, and beer. I learned to use this as a kid, and it’s my favorite power tool: I’ve cut with a handsaw, and a table saw is ever so much nicer.

We have the fridge and dishwasher now sitting on new flooring. Only 300 more square feet to go. We have to bring in another batch from the porch to let it assume room temperature before using. [We’ve had it sitting under tarp, on skids to protect it from rain.]

We have painting to go; plus the flooring; then roof vent and ducting, wiring for lights; then we start thinking about cabinets, countertop, and backsplash orders. Countertop can’t be ordered (measurements) before the cabinets are all in; ditto the backsplash. We have the sink; we have the faucet on order; and we’re now beginning to see the kitchen we’ve planned starting to have floor color, wall color, and such, with appliances moving into place where they will fit.

I think this is what our grandparents call "a senior moment."

The best part?
THEY WROTE IT IN ALL CAPS.

 

[sad face here]

 

"Sprinkles All Over Momther" is the name of my Cake cover band.

 

Ahhh, NOW you're speaking my language.

(The language... OF WRECKS. [eyebrow waggle])

 

In a word?
NO.

 

Thanks to Lani T., Donna C., Patrick L., Anony M., & Rebecca P. for keeping those lines of communication nice and squiggly-like.

I love these beautiful noisy birds. We have a few that come to the yard. It's hard to get pictures though because they're a bit shy. I had to take this between the railing on my porch.

Sunday Sweets: Stained Glass

"Color is to the eye what music is to the ear."

- Louis Comfort Tiffany

What does "stained glass" make you think of? Church windows? Fancy light fixtures?

How about gorgeous cakes?

(By Queen of Hearts Couture Cakes)

Ooh la la! So soft and pretty; I love the watercolor feel to those colors.

 

(By Paige Fong)

This cake practically glows, it's so vivid. And I like how the flowers are mirrored in the artwork.

 

(By Maggie Austin Cake)

I can't imagine the time it took to pipe and paint even one of these layers, much less four.

 

(By Corrie Cakes)

These cookies look like sun catchers! Doesn't the blue background look like a cloudy sky showing through?

 

(By Melissa Alt Cakes)

One of my personal favorites today! There's a great little Tiffany museum here in Florida, and this one reminds me the most of some of his windows there. Something about all those glowing greens and rich orangey-browns... Just lovely.

 

(also by Queen of Hearts Couture Cakes)

Both are amazing, but that blue! WOW.

 

(By Bittersweet Pastry)

Perhaps more of a mosaic than stained glass, but I'm blown away by the 3D flowers! Such a great design.

 

And another tile mosaic:

(By Passionate Cakes)

So much detail! Can you imagine how long it would take to place all those tiny pieces?!

 

These flowers look like they're bursting out of the glass design:

(Also by Maggie Austin Cake)

So. Cool.

 

And finally:

(By Vinism Sugar Art)

I take it back; I think this is my favorite. The balance of dark and light, the perfectly blended colors, that butterfly...! It belongs in the Tiffany Museum! Or my belly. One of the two, anyway. ;)

 

Hope you guys enjoyed! Happy Sunday!

Yes, some more hummingbird pics. Do you wonder how this hummingbird achieves its bedhead look? Why with a rather long (for a hummingbird) grooming session!
