Someday -when the ship comes in....

I know you -my readers -know me well enough by this point in time to have come to the realization that often, I am a bit of a dreamer. Nothing wrong with that now is there?

Well, as long as a person doesn't let the dreaming get out of hand and begin to believe those dreams -especially some that might be a bit far-fetched on the current budget in this household -are reality. If they could be reality, that would be nice, for sure. But at the moment, they aren't but it still doesn't stop me from dreaming -or Mandy either for that matter!

About two years ago, Mandy and her now estranged husband, had decided they were going to being working on doing some updating in the appearance of our bathroom. Nothing wrong with a project like that if you start small, do the affordable things that you want done and then, as you have time and hopefully, enough funds too of course, work on the changes you'd like to make on the higher end items.

And that's where one of my dreams comes into play!

Right now, we have the stuff around the tub that is fiberglass panels, at least that's what I'm pretty sure it is anyway. It's not a bad thing, served its purpose for my kids and for me for close to 20 years now as part of the shower enclosure -along with the glass sliding doors too.

But here's what I'd really like to have on the walls around the bath tub someday!

Some glass mosaic tile stuff is what I'd love to see on the bathroom walls around the tub -in some really pretty colors too that would blend and accent nicely off the flooring Mandy and Bill put in and the color they painted the walls too. That would mean a tile that sports some greens, sort of teal bluish shadings and beige and a little bit of a rust color too -not a really dark rust -just sort of lighter, medium shading -and boy, I just think that would make the bathroom look really spiffy, ya know.

But, what we currently have is still workable, livable, doable -whatever you care to call it -and there are other things we have to work on getting first, so the pretty glass mosaic stuff is gonna have to wait.

But I waited a long, long time to get this old house the way it is today -warts and all, as the saying goes -and it won't hurt us to bide our time a bit longer then either!

In the meantime, if I dream about re-doing the bathroom, let me just dream about it technicolor at the very least!

Yes, Jeni, dream in technicolor. Keep dreaming. I looked through all the tiles and there are some just like you describe. I hope you have a chance to see new tiles in your bathroom some day soon. Hugs.

I also share that dream. Glass mosaics in the bathroom would be very nice. In a vibrant colour!

Very cool idea with the mosaics tiles. Can't wait to see them in your bathroom. ; )

I'm a big fan of the glass tiles too! I'll bet your bathroom would look amazing! But, as you said, it's expensive; not just the materials but hiring someone to do the work. And if you can do it yourself, it's time consuming. It's tough having a bathroom out of commission for any length of time. Still... it' is fun to dream about those kinds of improvements!
