After posting about the discovery of snowdrops in my last post, I wanted to share with you the snowdrop I have year round...
This is a tiny framed tile, perhaps two inches square, created with a real snowdrop and glazed in earthy green and teal blue hues.
It hangs in my kitchen as part of a set of small herbaceous-themed tiles, which I purchased from Emma West Ceramics years ago. They make me happy.
I had read about Emma West in an issue of Country Living magazine, then promptly ordered a few treasures for myself. We had recently moved into our house, and we had no budget for bathroom renovations or large tiles, so I ordered these simply framed little gems instead.
Fast forward a few years, and we were redecorating the downstairs loo. When deciding on tiles for behind the sink, I immediately knew what I wanted:
I chose a range of flora and fauna (she only had what was ‘in season’!), and a more bluish glaze than the greener kitchen version. I am enchanted by these tiles, and I wish I could have them dotted around the house, not just allocated to the loo!
I love that these tiles give me almost fossil-like souvenirs of the garden, whatever the season, whatever the weather.
Just a bit of pretty for your day!
