One woman, lots of paint and hundreds of tiles. If you're here because you found a painted tile, it's yours to keep.

Blue Bridget

Sometimes Bridget is shiny, charming and witty. But sometimes she just feels dull, unpolished and sleepy, or as her mom always called it, noodled. "Bridget," she'd say, "You look absolutely noodled." Then she'd pour her a glass of wine or make her a cup of tea and maybe a nice little sandwich with some Lay's potato chips on the side, and then they'd sit around and talk and all would be right with the world again. But Bridget's mom has moved on to the big kitchen table in the sky, and there are days when Bridget thinks she'd forfeit 10 years of her own life, just to have her mom back for one good healthy year. Now when Bridget's feeling noodled, she prefers to be alone, painting while watching movies, or cleaning while listening to fiddle music ... or just reading a good book in the yard and snoozing between chapters. Occasionally, she'll just have tea and a sandwich and a bag of chips.

Left Bridget at Dough Boys on 17th Street in Fort Lauderdale, and exited with a sandwich and a bag of chips. Bridget is safely secured in a cabinet under the sink in the women's room.
