Homage to Julia

We recently replaced a broken exhaust fan over the range in our kitchen. As you can see the new fan has a more slender profile than the last fan and it left an exposed strip of brick along the top edge of the backsplash. I thought long and hard about which of my tiles to use to cover the brick. As it turns out, nearly all were too tall for the space. I decided instead to press a few simple tiles with one of the many clever quotes coined by kitchen goddess Julia Child, “Everything in moderation… including moderation.” I’m not sure she was the first to use the phrase but it has been attributed to her and I really like it.
