I have had several people ask where we got the tiles for our trailer backsplash. We bought them on Amazon and they have several colors available. I tried to copy and paste the photo from the ad here for you but it wouldn’t let me. The following is the description for the tiles that we bought. If you type in Tic Tac Tiles, they should pop up.
This is the photo I took of the package they come in.
This is what they look like in the trailer. Oh, I also got that magnetic knife rack on Amazon. I had one in the old trailer and absolutely loved it. I have one in the kitchen at home too.
We are closing it up a couple of weeks early because we are leaving on Tuesday to go to Omaha to see all of our family. Most importantly Mandy and Piper! Little Miss Piper is turning seven on the 29th! We are driving and this year we’re actually taking a different route to Omaha. We’re going to drive down through Wyoming to Casper, and then across I-80 in Nebraska so we can go to a museum in Kearney, Nebraska that is built over the interstate. When we come home, we will do our usual route up through South Dakota because it is faster. If you remember, when we took this trip at the same time last year for her birthday, we drove home in a blizzard across Iowa and South Dakota. Please pray that does not happen again.
We have a house-sitter who is staying with Chloe. She is bringing her daughter to stay with her too. Chloe will be in heaven! They dote on her even more than we do and they’ll be with her almost all the time. I like leaving someone at the house when we travel. It just makes me feel better to not have an empty house.
I hope everyone who asked about the tile sees this post. I tried to email the information to a few people, but I don’t think I have the correct email addresses and they wouldn’t go through, so I thought it would be better just to put it on the blog. These tiles really are very, very easy to work with. You can actually just cut them to fit with scissors.
I really have been knitting even though I haven’t shown you pictures. At last count I have knitted 10 more pair of mittens since I last showed you a photo. I will try to remember to take a picture tomorrow for my next post. I am woefully behind in the number of mittens I’ve made this year. At last count I only had 32 pair! What is wrong with me? I have made up my mind to only knit on mittens while I’m on this trip, except for finishing Piper’s socks when I get to Omaha. I think I should be able to get at least another 20 pair done during the drive. It’s getting so cold so early, I think I’m going to have to give the school whatever I have done about the middle of October this year.
I think one of the reasons I got so far behind were the mini-Christmas stockings that I made for the Veterans Home. I’ve also made several baby layettes for new babies. I have been busy... just not making mittens. I do know they’ll be happy with however many I’m able to give them. And some mittens are better than none right?
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
