une belle mosaïque sur cette vieille fenêtre, les deux vont très bien ensemble

Dina said...

I guess some downtowns would die to have such decay.

So beautiful. The curtains match the tile. I don't get a feel of decay here. More of great age.

Hilda said...

I hope the owner doesn't let it decay further — that tilework, and even the ironwork, is too beautiful to lose.

Joan Elizabeth said...

The tiles hide the decay.

Sharon said...

That beautiful, bright tile appears to be holding up the rest of the building.

Babzy said...

what a nice frame :)

Sad to see it decline in appearance but it sure makes a great blog posting! I love, love the blue tiles around the French doors (or Portuguese doors)!
Bon weekend

The tiles still stand out thankfully. But for how long?

Lois said...

The beautiful tiles still appear to be in good shape.

Anya said...

Antique and very unique :-)
So cool !!!!

Have a wonderful weekend JM
:)

Irina said...

What did they add to the blue that it still keeps being blue and does not fade? I like the photo very much. The attempts to repair the blue decor look so nice.

AB said...

The asymmetrical "azulejos" look rather good

Gunn said...

So beautiful!!:)
Nice details, colors and composition.

Decay or not, it's beautiful!

Anzu said...

I wonder to see
a ghostly face in the window. (LOL)

The beautiful blue tiles make up for any decay one might see. MB

Nefertiti said...

Ann said...

it's funny the two sides of blue tiles are not equal.

Kate said...

The tiles give emphasis to the term "true blue." Beautiful tiles in your country, JM!

Paty said...

eu adoro estes azulejos portugueses, que pena, espero que alguém os conserve.

VP said...

A very classy kind of decay...

Jacob said...

Sad. What can be done? The tile work is splendid, but it looks like it will all crumble to dust soon.

Deepak Acharya said...

I liked the design :)

Wolynski said...

The tiles seem to be doing better than the stone. The blue and white is beautiful.
