Lisbon tiles

Lisbon was a visual treat for a pattern field like me. Every other building in the compact, hilly city centre is covered in gorgeous tiles in every shade and motif combo – even the pavements are cobbled in intricate designs.

I even picked up a couple from the flea market to bring home, which will become coasters or pot holders.

    Wow, these are amazing photographs! You're making me want to go off travelling now! I love that there are so many different variations of these tiles and it's great you got some at the flea market to remind you of your trip!
