One more for the road!

I had rather hoped that I would of gotten a lot further on this box than I did today. But, it seems that either someone or something has run off with my blue tape, or I have hid it on myself. Either one could be quite possible, lol. I originally wanted to put in a wood floor, but then opted for a much easier way. I knew I had seen a sheet of flooring at AC Moore's, so I went to check it out. They had several to choose from, but at almost $24 a sheet, I decided there had to be a cheaper way. I wanted light floors, and thought about cutting out squares of scrapbook paper, but again, too time consuming for me......and then it came to me, CORK. You can buy a 12x24in sheet of it for $2.99......Now that's what I'm talking about. And, you know, I really like it! I put a coat of varnish on it, and will probably put on a few more . I have all the baseboards and moulding ready to go, now if I could just find that darn tape................
***I say 'One more for the road', because tommorrow I'm going on vacation. My first real vacation with my kids, and I can't wait!! But, don't worry......I'll be back in a week, with lots of pictures to share! But, for now, I must turn off the computer, put away all my supplies~don't want Otis eating them while I'm gone~ and I must say ..........until next time.

Have a nice holidays!!!!!
I love cork, do you no, that Portugal is the greatest world cork producer? And the cork is taken from the tree every 9 years (it is the bark of the tree, and there is no harm for the tree to take it out)?
