New Backsplash for son and dil

emtnestAugust 10, 2009

I am in Canada for a nice stay with my son and his sweet family. Dil had a baby girl two weeks ago and last week I did a backsplash in their huge kitchen...

Emtnest, I am in Napanee, Ontario (right beside Kingston)! I guess that's quite a bit away, darn! LOL! No joking though, it would have been nice to meet!

Charmo,
I went through Kingston a couple of weeks ago on the train on my way to Montreal. I went there to meet a fellow garden junker from gardenjunk.org. We had a grand time in Montreal! Maybe another time. They have huge rhubarb leaves here, so we are gonna have some fun with them this week now that the work is done.

Oh too bad we didn't know! But for sure next time let me know, it would be fun. In the meantime enjoy your time with your family and have a piece of pie for me!

They get such severe weather here with the freeze that the mosaic pots I did for them two years ago didn't make it through the winter very well. Would hate to put all that work into it and not have it hold up... I might suggest staining it though to get rid of the plain gray...

Oh, you go for a visit, and whip out a backsplash on a weekend. Uh huh!!! Speedy. It's B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. Nice pics too. Don't believe I've ever seen a black squirrel.
