When Don got in last night, he told me they had finished the fireplace...I didn't even know they had started! Well, the builder called this morning and said that he was getting ready to cover it up to keep the drywall dust out of it when they sanded the walls. He said that if I wanted to see it , I had better get over there...NOW!
So, quick shower, little make-up and I'm off. Friends, it is beautiful! I really, really like it. The pictures show the whole fireplace, then a close up of the stones.The floor will be the color of the tan stone, travertine, cut in random square like the fireplace.

Then, since I was out, I went by and picked out my new glasses...and then a haircut, and now home. I seem to have picked up a little stomach, it's rest time for me.

That is wonderful! What a work of art. The travertine will be perfect. Oh, you are going to love it!!!!!!! I can't wait to see it all together! What fun to keep up with it along the way like this.
Hope you feel better! You have had a busy day! What kind of glasses did you get!? Fun and funky or sophisticated and studious?

That is a beautiful fireplace and so tall! You'll have to post a picture of you in your new glasses.
