Renovation update and the shoe thief

So, we are moving along on the bathroom project...

Even if it seems like slow moving.

The shower is all tiled out. Now it awaits its grout treatment.

Choosing paint colors is always a time consuming task for me.

I like to have them taped to the wall and just walk by them all the time. And sometimes, I move them around...even if its just a little move...

And then I wait for one to speak to me.

It just so happens, the one that spoke to me this time, well, it has spoken to me before. At my last house. In Illinois. Spiced vinegar. Such a lovely fall name.

I think I mentioned that G has become fast friends with the construction crew.

Well, he was just beside himself when he scored these tile spacers from one of the gentleman workers.

Pair that with his love for PVC piping...and heck, maybe hes gonna be a contractor when he grows up.

I dunno. Ill be proud of him no matter what he does...even if it happens to be stealing my shoes and hiding them in his truck.

I was looking for those shoes for days....I just happened to come out to the porch at the same time he was unloading his "treasure". Look, mama, look what I had buried under the tree.....

Maybe one of the workers loaned him a shovel?

I'm glad your construction is moving along. Your 'spiced vinegar' looks a bit like the background color of your blog.

Well, I know you think I'm crazy now.
I mean, your color looks like the background color of your comment page. I never really noticed that they change colors.

That little truck has been the source of much fun! Shawn used to hide things in it, too.

Ooooh, the tile looks so pretty in your shower. And regarding those paint chips...I choose the beige one. (ah ha ha ha hahaaaaaaa)
So tickled G has a shoe fetish, too. Makes me not feel quite so lonely with mine.
What's the completion date for the bathroom?

Nice shower tile. And I was drawn to the same paint chip as you were. You have great taste! Danni's comment about beige did crack me up though.

Glad to hear your construction workers are not like ours...
I love all the colors in that general flavor...my house is proof of it.

That tile in your shower is beautiful.
Did G really bury your shoes? If so, that is hysterical.

I like that name, spiced vinegar! The color is pretty too. G does seem to have a great interest in the building, excavationg, type stuff! Lots of great careers in those areas! Just don't let him become a truck driver. I don't recommend it.

I love the Spiced Vinegar color. Mostly I love the name.... The shower stall is awesome! Good thing G found those shoes for you. Such a helpful little guy.
