Shaking off the cobwebs...

Tile will tuck in back here....

Yesterday after a wonderful and much too fast visit with our daughter, her friend and the Grand baby it was time to pack off the tile project and get it delivered.


We packed it all up and took it off to the new owner with the hope that it would be installed this week.
(there is a Christmas party coming up)
We set the whole thing out, talked to the tile setter and then at some point I realized I had to let it go.
I have no problem letting go of the pottery I make but this let go was more like sending a child off.
I thought I would be jumping for joy after, but instead have had a bit of the let down feeling.
I guess after all the months of work maybe I wanted a band and dancing girls for the send off.
I can only wait now for my sister to get some pictures up for me and fingers crossed it all tucks in it's new home and fits like I hope it will.
I hope these guys are friendly.....
 We did take a few pictures so you could see the many friends the giraffe will be surrounded by.

I do love these stairs that lead down to the rooms below.

I hope he does not eat giraffes! 
say goodbye Gracie...goodbye.

Now to shake off the cobwebs, sweep out the studio and see where I can start.
Wheel- tiles- wheel- tiles- choices to be made.
Peace,
M

I can understand why it would be hard to let it go and kind of post-partumish. You'll have to get a photo of the finished install. Time to celebrate and move on. Congrats!

Congrats! And that is some house -- your giraffes are going to love it there. Post pics after the install.

I bet it is a little sad to see it go... but omg, it's going to such a wonderful place! I LOVE LOVE LOVE giraffes. Ask Gary. ;)

Wow. That's going to look great. There's been even more work done on the joint since we were there in September.

I would love to see that house! Reminds me of my days doing showrooms for the furniture market in High Point, I had one company that loved doing themes like that. Can't wait to see the finished pics. I know you are glad to have it finished before Christmas :)
