A little further in that thread is a useful post on using silicone caulk.

In general you're lucky if you can find 3-4 colors in cheaper threshold grade/sizes (4.5" wide) ready to go. Some areas of the country hardly use them at all, or use the small 2" wide commercial ones. The threshold is not going to match, but it would be nice if it blended, complimenting the tiles. A good option it to visit your local marble/granite shop and have one cut for you.

The big boxes carry white in 4" wide. I have no idea why they're 4" wide instead of 4.5". In case someone needs a crate of 80-90 or a full container, let me know. It's a very nice cream color called Italian Cream.

I ended up picking up a nice white with gray swirls from The Tile Shop. The swirls actually matched the tiles very well.

Sounds like you got a piece of Carrara. It's the most common color for threshold and works for many people. http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=...le&FORM=HDRSC2

As promised, finished tile. I still need to buff the remaining haze off the tiles. Overall the boss (wife) is pleased and that's a win in my book.

Thanks for all the advice and guidance guys!
