Arabesque Tile


To a very disjointed post showing you tile that I love, and then telling you some fun facts about the making of this post. Behind the scenes. A backstage pass, if you will. 

(I'm tired and it's almost finals week. I have a feeling I'll look back on this post later and ask myself, 'Why?').

But what I will NOT question, is why I showed you the beautiful arabesque backsplash in this kitchen. 

Is that gorg or WHAT? So bright and cheery. Ever since my mom remodeled her kitchen in our old house, I've joined her as a lover of subway tile. This white arabesque tile is a really nice alternative to the white subway tile that we love! 

I can't wait for the day that my mom gets to remodel the kitchen in her current house. Sometimes I draw pictures of what I dream for it to look like during class. I'm getting ahead of myself. But that day will come.

K, here's the fun facts about this post:

1) It's the week before finals week and writing this post is giving me a nice break from the mounds of homework and studying that I should be doing. 

2) This post was written in an extremely cool cafe 
downtown called Roy Street {coffee and tea}.

3) I started to take pictures of the cafe to show you, but I think people thought I was creepily snapping pictures of them. They gave me looks of confusion and anger. Slash hatred. So I stopped. For fear of my life.

4) That cafe also happens to have THEE SLOWEST internet...on the entire planet. Yep. I mean it. THE WHOLE PLANET.

5) Because of that, getting the link to load for the pics in this post took ehhh..30 minutes?

6) But am I mad? No.

7) Why? Because that tile makes me happy

8) And because slow internet is a very small thing
 to be annoyed by in the grand scheme of life.

Life is good.

The end.

Great tiles! And love the water tap next to the stove - how convenient.

Good luck with exams! I remember what that used to be like. It will be all over before you know it.....

Those tiles are beautiful! I love it that they're white but still add pattern. Sigh. I so need a new backsplash in my kitchen!
Thanks for the peek behind the scenes! Glad you put your camera away before your life was in danger. ;)
