Oscar Wilde is in my kitchen!!

He is going to be looking thoughtfully at me every time I use the oven!
Our lovely friend Kerry put the tiles up this afternoon. I found the two feature tiles years ago and we've been planning to do this tiling for that long. Three years maybe? Heavens! The one with the pic of Oscar says, "I can resist anything except temptation" and the other one says, "Life is too important to be taken seriously." I also have the one about being talked about and not being talked about, which will end up being a pot hob. At some time.
So, tomorrow I am grouting!
No more horribly denim blue splash back tiles, instead we have lovely white ones. That will show every mark and splash. Of course!
The apartment was covered in plaster dust when I got home and I just spent two hours vacuuming and mopping and wiping. SO worth it though! :)

  1. It looks good! White will show everything, but that's the point, right?

    1. They are made right here in Wellington by Porteous Tiles. I got them from the Tile shop at the top of Ngaio Gorge, not the one at the bottom, but I am not sure if they still sell them. They make awesome tiles. http://porteoustiles.co.nz/
