Naomi, how wonderful to see a picture of George and his wife and son. I salute his genius and your photography and description of his home. Just amazing. It leaves me with my mouth open and cannot wait for more. Wow Betty is 91, now that will be a special birthday. hope the day goes well. Thanks agin for this post. Such a beautiful home and piece of art.
So much time and dedication, it is such a wonderful house!! can't wait to see the inside :)
Enjoy your lunch! Warmest birthday wishes to the birthday ladies!
Wow! He truly lives in a work of art! Breathtaking and how kind of them to find a way to get you up there!
Oh the birthday celebration post is definitely worth waiting for so you are excused :)
I am such a fan of Betty G and the beautiful Lee too.
I'm guessing that meeting Mr. Ehling is right up near the top of your life's highlight list - how stinkin' cool. Thank you so very much for letting us in on the experience.
Happy Birthday Betty and Lee. Know you will have a wonderful party and hope this day and the coming year are wonderful.
I am so glad you were able to get inside this man's home. Curosity was killing me.
The fact that he recycles helps to explaing the huge variety of patterns and materials.
Pretty sure I would get dizzy trying to see every thing. That is a home you could visit hundereds of times and never see it all.
Keep the pictures coming but first, have fun with your friends.
Absolutely fantastic. And to imagine viewing, meeting such lovely people with the piano music in the air...wow. Just amazing.
i love your photo essay! what an amazing way to tell the story!! and yes, the tiles are amazing, gorgeous and well worth all of the time i have just spent pouring over them! thanks :)
Wow! Just... Wow! All that tile work is so beautiful, it must have taken a lot of love, time and dedication to do.
Take care and have a wonderful weekend :)
It is wonderful to see this house again; to meet the owner and his family and see the lovely designs up close and personal, as it were.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Lee and Betty!! I always look forward to your photos of the birthday parties.
Tell Betty and Lee "Happy Birthday" from all of us fans out here reading your blog. As for George and his tiling, what made him want to tile the entire property? I assume he did this in his free time?
Thank you so much for continuing to share this beautiful tile house. It really is something to see. Did I miss how he comes up with the designs?
Happy birthday to Betty and Lee. Awesome milestones they've reached!
Naomi, how amazing is to see this wonderful house and his creator! Nice to know this very artistic family. And his Brazilian wife is very beautiful.
I am enchanted to see all those mosaics and its details. You did a good job here. Your photos are fantastic.
I am looking forward to see the
celebrating Betty's 91st Birthday, and Lee M.'s 75th! The "Ladies Who Lunch" is always a great event. As I always say, I would love to be there! Lol!
Have a happy weekend.
I just never tire of seeing that tile house! Thanks for showing such wonderful detail.
Outstanding part of the series. I really wanted to know more about the person behind this. The house must have been built at the start of the Art Deco era and the tile additions are a perfect compliment.
How great to see the master behind all that beautiful work
His wife is stunning
I am sure the luncheon was a grand affair :)
Looking forward to the photos
Hope sends big hugs
I was so hoping to see the master behind the tiles, and what a pleasant surprise. Thank you Miss Naomi, and this is exactly why I'll always visit bloggers even when I stop our blog as you offer so much pleasure to my mind.
I really enjoyed this post...their son must be amazing with all that parental talent.

I'm thrilled to "meet" the artist behind the beautiful tile work. He is amazing!! I love the photo of him with his wife...the way he is looking at her, you can tell he's a passionate man. The detail and colors on the archway are fantastic! Thanks for sharing more of Mr. Ehling's designs with us, my friend. It never gets old.
Speaking of never getting old, Happy Birthday to your wonderful, spirited friends! I can't wait to hear more about your lunch!!
Happy Sunday! xo
Wow! It never ceases to amaze me. I feel happy every time I look at pictures of that house and it's so nice to see the faces behind it. You've done a great job documenting this, Naomi. Thanks.
I am forever in awe of how you see the world around you. The people you keep in touch with. The humility with which you present your enormous talent and good taste. Bravo.
First of all, Happy Birthday to Betty and sorry I have been late in wishing her. Wishing her the best of health always.
Next, I am totally totally amazed by the sheer dedication and hardwork in designing this house. George and his wife is so gracious to show you around this lovely house and I hope I get to visit it someday too :D
that house is fabulous and it's nice to see photo's of the man who did it all!!!!
I can't believe Betty is 91 and no way is Lee 75!! Oh my~ nope, I cannot believe it!!
I know you will have another spectacular luncheon! Oh how I love your pictures of your luncheons!!! there is so much love and happiness that shows in those pictures! I do think you should have someone else get a few with you in them too.. I know the luncheons make you feel happy too!
That is one amazing house! And lovely that you know the folks and talent that lives there! Enjoy your 'lunch'!
Those are beautiful photos of a work of art that spanned a lifetime. just amazing what he has done and how you captured it to show it and give him the credit he didn't even ask for.
Sorry, but this place does nothing for me. However, it does give me a headache from looking at it.
Hi Naomi! I'm finally here catching up. I have been waiting for the lovely tile house pictures!! Can't wait to go on and read the next part, which will be No. 8!
This is so amazing that he has done all this work, and intriguing that he finds lots of this stuff in dumpsters! Who would have thought?? LOL
What a lovely couple they are! So sweet that they showed you around their home. I am just amazed and delighted by this beautiful tile work that he has done! What an accomplishment!!
I'm off to read the next part now!!!
I'm so glad you visited them and met them. George looks nothing like 83 but with such a beautiful wife and so creative a life one can't wonder.
Well done to everybody for bringing it off and thank you for recording it all so well.
