Jeff and I spent 2 to 3 hours sifting and unloading tile. We have 3 large piles of boxes. Again, I can hardly believe how much tile I got. Here is the pile of 3x6 subway field tile in my living room. (With the sewing room empty and awaiting floor refinishing and the guest room full of nearly everything from the sewing room, we were out of space to stash this tile upstairs.) The house is, frankly, looking like a construction zone right now. I guess that's a good thing if we're actually getting projects done.
I don't think we got enough green tiles to do our original tile plan in the bathroom. We did get a lot of green tiles, but there are about four different shades of green. I may have to rethink the plan. Or I could be extra silly and try to glaze some of my own. I ran across Painting Ceramics: How to Paint and Stencil Already Made Ceramics Pieces and it got me started thinking in a crafty way. Hmm, stencil? Now that is right up my alley. :D
every catalog listed at the Tile Heritage website. And I got the entire lot of books for $100!! There was also four other boxes of pottery books that I don't need. I'm selling those or donating them to the library. (Any pottery makers among my readers?) There were several coffee table books of period pottery. I'd love to collect pottery, but it's just too expensive and too breakable for our lifestyle. Maybe someday I'll find some good deals and pick a few things up. (I mostly stopped looking in recent years.)
Oh, and for Jan, this is the Flint Faience 1926 Tile Company catalog I got. What specifically are you interested in?
