As Promised

Picking up where I left off last night: images of the wood grain patterns of my floor or grout close ups. Ahem, well, here we are. This is the wood floor in my kitchen. The wood floors are throughout this house, and are vintage to say the least. The house was built in 1936. I know this because the plumber showed me where to look in the toilet tank. If you've just built a house, you should be able to go look in your tank it will have a date which, according to my plumber Bob, will be within 6 months of the thing being installed.

Yep, I can recall that, but where I left the remote? Anybody's guess.

Back to the wood floors. I like them. They were one of the things that sold me on the house.

Next, we have grout closeups. Well, really, this is a close up of the tile floor on my one-and-only bathroom. Lately I've been seeing more new like this, but still not anything identical to this. I'm going to be sad when I finally have to replace it because I like this so well, it helps me get over the anemic yellow tile on the walls.

And while I was in the bathroom, I snapped this. I love this. It came from Ballard's Back Room. Ballard's is a home furnishings catalog started by a lady in Atlanta. Always they have things I really like. I got my desk from there too. It's a little large, but it'll do.

That's it for show and tell. Thanks for coming by.
Don't forget to leave your guess on what's wrong in the stove top picture in Monday's post. You could win a vintage post card!


  1. Love, love, love the light switch cover thingy! I must get myself one of those babies! I'm envious of your 1930's house. Mine is a little stock builder row house. I love it, but the main reason I bought it was because of the arches in the living and dining rooms--character wherever a girl can find it : )

  2. You must take me to Ballard's sometime. I keep saying I'm going to go, but just never quite make it.
