Standing the test of time.

In the Midwest, we get all types of weather. September came in strong and hot, then made us all cold one week with a side of rain. Now we Omahaian’s are feeling the crisp autumn air and it’s showing. I smell more bonfires in our neighborhood. The pumpkin patches have opened up and today I saw organic pumpkin at Costco, so fall has officially arrived!

We’ve been in the swing of school for a few weeks now and have gotten a schedule down that works for us all. In case you did not know. We choose to homeschool. Not just because of a worldwide pandemic. But because kids grow up way too fast and what better way for me to use my teaching degrees than to teach our own littles for the time being. Late last Thursday evening, I decided to take the kids to Markman Pumpkin Patch. It must have been the pumpkin spice latte I had at HyVee that snapped out my summer mood into fall-ish desires because we haven’t looked back as summer trades her green leaves for cooler temps.

Our co-op took their first field trip of the school year to Washington County Historical Museum. I was fascinated by the original tile flooring in what use to be the town bank. Our company is dedicated to installing materials that will last decades. I often wonder how many of OUR projects could still be around in 100 years. I know my husband installs masterpieces weekly. His projects have the ability to withstand the test of time. But to SEE a 100 year old tile floor is honestly amazing. Check out this gorgeous floor! I am thoroughly impressed with the craftmanship poured into it. You must go see it for yourself! Here is their website to set up your own tour!

The tile floor doesn’t even look 100 years old! It was in beautiful condition.

I can’t leave without showing you all just a few of our latest projects. After all, this is the website of Phillips Tile & Stone. We are a family business. We know the importance of work/family balance. So I’m hoping you felt that in this blog post. 🙂

Wouldn’t it be amazing for these spaces we’ve installed were to be used and enjoyed for decades to come? That is our desire and wish for ALL who use our services.

May your September be full of pumpkin patches, apple orchards, yummy hot drinks and home remodels. Fall is my favorite season. So don’t be alarmed if you see a few more blog posts. 🙂 Soon the holidays will be here! The Midwest girl in me plans on enjoying this weather before it turns again.
