I'm in love with an island...
It still lacks the three stools I picked out to go with it--those are being paid for in installments.
hmm hmm... :) I have one more left to pay, and then I can pick them up. Stools are expensive btw..
Never knew this until I took my trip to the furniture store to pick some out. If you want to buy some that are made in China of particle board--they might not be that much. If you want the ones made in Amerka and finished in N.C.--they are pricier. I am sort of a "you get what you pay for" person..and also will probably keep the same stools forever (I am my mama's child).
My children--and Andy were enthralled. It is fun to watch someone who knows what they are doing.
I asked Luis if this makes him nervous..he said--nah! So Luis had to do a bit of creative placement to avoid having to cut of 1/16 of an inch from both sides of the tile--he and Andy figured a way to avoid that cutting.
So this meant careful and meticulous placement of the tile...
I kept saying to him, "I don't care Luis--it is fine, trust me, it is fine...I am not picky--" I could not find the word for picky in Spanish, so I asked him how to say it...He did not know either! He is a Spanglish speaker, and picky works for him now.
I thought...particular (my mom uses that..."don't be so particular"--they are cognates...then I thought..fastidiosa--that means bothered/bothersome--bothered might work...I could not come up with a good word..I will have to ask Camelia--I bet she will say, "picky."
