Applying the first bit of mortar . . .

"Schluter Strips" were put in next to help with the transition from tile to wood flooring.
These small tiles were easy to deal with, and were trimmed to size quickly with the tile saw.
The finished project - well, finished except for grout - which Scott plans on doing Monday evening.
The 2x4 subway-style mosaic tile is from the same family of tile (Crossville Buenos Aries Mood in "La Boca") used in the master bathroom. It's caramel-y color matches beautifully with the limestone inset on the fireplace. Great job, Scott!
