sweet marvelous floor

it’s in. yippee. and husband did such a good job on it too. he laid it out on the computer to make sure he didn’t have to cut any super skinny pieces and that the tiles around the edges were all the same width. now that’s how mavis likes it. he’s probably more like me and my pal monk than he’d like to think (that or he had ulterior motives, hard to say).

i won’t post any more pictures till we finish the baseboards and trim work. then i will give you some lovely before and after shots. anyways, i’m out of here. and congratulations to jill who won the pink, frou frou apron. i’m rather jealous.

    Gayla’s cousin here. Love your new floor. I’ve been reading a biography of Dwight Eisenhower and googled wife Mamie. Have you ever heard of “Mamie pink.” Check out this link:

    Floor looks great! Can’t wait to see the rest…

    Congratulations, Jill…I’m soooooooooo jealous. Funny, I didn’t think the apron was frumpy…what does that make me?

    I’m sure glad I learned to laugh at myself a long time ago.
    After re-reading I realize Jill did not win the beautiful Retro white eyelet apron…but I might still be jealous if I knew where to see the frumpy pink apron. 🙂

    Ahhhh…so…You’ve confirmed my “jealousy” Frou, frou describes your give-away apron much better. Frumpy rhymes with dumpy and always conjures that image in my mind.

    Angela is right about the shadows on your floor. Your photo needs a caption.
