Not only has he taken to collecting bricks... (He's nesting BIG TIME.)
You may have noticed how our collection has grown!but he's scouring the plentiful streets of NYC looking for treasure (Which he's FOUND!) on a daily basis.
Now, finding discarded tiles is one thing, but finding enough salvageable ones to cover a floor is a task. I've been getting calls from Nick once or twice a day saying something like "I found a ton of marble tiles, should I get em?!" And I always say Yes.
Last night Nick found about 30 terracotta tiles in our neighborhood. When I got home I commended him on his find and he suggested we poke around to see if there were any more. So like a couple of wily raccoons hunting for wet Oreos, we ventured out with a backpack and a skate board.
That, my dear readers, is our soon-to-be laundry room floor! (Provided we have a laundry room...)
