Just saw a new type of tile, and I want some!

silvamaeFebruary 8, 2011

Mosaic Mercantile has a new line of pre-cut, irregularly shaped glass mosaic tile called Crafter's Cut, solid color families that come with three shades of a single color and gems which come in two color types, Sparkle, which have a bubbly glitter to them and Shimmer, which have glittery sheen. I already have thousands of pounds of tile and glass (exaggerating only a little), but I want some of these!

Here is a link that might be useful: Mosaic Mercantile's website

Beautiful, but too expensive for my stinginess. I never order pre-cut tiles any more. Trying to use what I have on hand. Like you, I have many lbs of tiles, dishes and found objects. Oh, sure, the hunt for new stuff is always soooooo tempting, but....... Oh to have unlimited budgets. Whatcha gonna put them on?

I'm not gonna order any; I just WANT some. I am trying to be good and use what I already have on hand ... I am setting limits and sticking to them. I still visit thrift shops occasionally and I limit my purchases -- for example, plates or saucers that are 99 cents; no more buying the entire set of dishes for $25.00 and that kind of wild spending. Now, if I win the Lotto tonight, that's a whole new kettle of fish.

LOL - That is soooooo funny, NANA, cuz I think the same thing. How in the WORLD w/my kids sell this house w/all the c r a _ on the back garden wall, in the corner, behind the fountain and w/a huge fountain out front that w/take a bull dozer to knock down etc. Then I think maybe some artistic soul might want it. THEN I think - don't worry - it's payback for some of the little piccadillies they've caused me in life! Let's enjoy our stashes and foibles.
