My love for decorative Tiles

I am extremely obsessed with decorative tiles, what ever purpose it is used on, whether it is used on floors, or from floor to ceiling walls.

I came across these in the shop window of Best Flooring Solutions. The intricate tile work made a good impression on me.

This inspired me to search for some ideas on Pinterest. Here are some of my finds.

Wish I could sew…

If there is one skill I wish I had perfected, is sewing. I wonder do they still teach kids these skills in school? Home economics was great for me, as a kid you could learn how to knit, stitch, crochet and sew amongst other skills.

I found this really cool lady on Instagram called Elly, she creates these amazing, fun, colourful and unique items. They are all handmade and I am in absolute awe.

Currently Elly York workshop on Etsy is currently on a short break. Her Etsy shop will reopened on March 2nd!
