Friday's Favorite Corner

Mary Jane made it in fine this afternoon. We have been running since she stepped off the plane, poor thing. We had lunch at The Cheesecake Factory--YUM. I had their "luncheon" size Santa Fe salad which I only at half of. Their portions are huge!! Mom always orders their grilled cheese; and this time, she at the whole thing! I was amazed!! MJ got the seafood salad and said it was delish. We then came home for a bit, ran to downtown Franklin to pick up an item I needed and then off for dinner. After din din we ran over to see what was shakin' at the football game. Not a good night. We played Franklin HS and they won by some blowout! We couldn't find a seat so we only stayed until halftime. Poor guys. Off to a rocky start.


Today's corner is outside our guest room. I have collected several Moravian tiles from Bucks County, PA over the years. (Click here for their catalog of tiles.) Most are cracked from the kids playing with them, but whatchya gonna do? We were building our house in Leesburg, VA at the time, and I had thought I wanted to tile the fireplace in these smaller tiles. I'm glad I didn't because I was able to take them with me when I moved.
Anyway, I'm way too tired to go into details but I wanted to get my FFC in for the day and have been showing MJ how I do the bloggin thing. Of course, my machine is in slow-mo tonight--and I do mean MAJOR slow-mo.

ZZZZZZZ. Night.

Sounds as if you're having a fun time. The tiles are wonderful and I, too, am glad you didn't have to leave them behind on a fireplace because then you wouldn't be able to show them to us!

Enjoy your weekend! Sorry about the football team.

Moravian tiles. How neat. I've never seen these before. I really like the one with the blue tree.

You would say cheesecake. I love it. I'm making a pineapple cheese pie for supper.
