Patchwork Tiles & Mothers Day

Whilst having a flick through one of my old decorating books today I stumbled across this image which reminded me how much I really like the idea of these blue and white patchwork tiles for our new kitchen.  Oh and look at those big fabulous blue and white bowls...definitely something else to covet!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  Mine was lovely.  The boys cooked me lunch.  I set the table with succulents and our mismatched old blue and white plates.  It was relaxing and happy and I loved every minute of it....xx

That is really neat, I like it for a specific kind of home/kitchen. Its so artsy, creative and fun looking and adds a lot of personality to the room. Beautofiul! Happy Mothers Day!

I like everything you post here in your blog, Anna. I wish I had in Brazil some incredible store like yours... Maybe one day when I finally visit Australia I can visit you also... Regards, R.

Hi Anna , it is so lovely when one works under pressure to enjoy time with our family at the week end. So pleased to see you use your blue and white mismatched china. I have been moving my shop to a new position at The Cottage Garden Centre and it will come up great. Hope to be finished by next weekend so I can come to your sale. Beverley

I love those splash back tiles. I'm a complete sucker for blue and white ceramics so they're right up my ally, just gorgeous.
Lovely blog x

I love the second photo for its mix of textures and patterns - the decorative shiny plate, the textured mat, the succulent plants and the silverware. Gorgeous!

Hi Anna,

funny, I just posted my tile mix of our kitchen (to be) on my blog!

(I hope you do not mind the link. It is a funny coincidence)

However, it is not blue and white what fits to you better.

AND: I love this plate. My mum has them too.

All the best
