Nice composition, JM! It looks old but the piping appears newer. Is this for washing or drinking?

These tiles are one of my favorite parts of Portugal. I like to use the designs in my applique.

Just so in love with all the tiles. It's the first thing I'm going to hunt for when I find my way in your corner of the universe.

I imagine these are very old tiles, and call me crazy, but the birds look like exact prototypes of the classic swallow tattoo. Many of the flowers too. I guess you never know where artistic inspiration and influences come from...

Portugal seems to have an unending supply of tiles. They make this very simple scene so appealing.

I wonder what this fount was originally? It seems too small to be an original fountain in a plaza.
