Gifts and Exchanges
Rachel at TileSmile and I did an exchange in the winter time. She liked some of my things, and I selected some of her tiles. This one is an Irish toast.
Some I can't show as they are planned for gifts, and the gift receivers read this blog. Don't want to spoil the surprise.
I love the colors, and the ruddy earthenware clay. The words are cheery and fun. They came in this fun box, with purple paper.
And she sent me an unglazed tile, inviting me to paint onto it. So far I've just been enjoying its rustic raw unglazed texture. Maybe I'll paint on it, and possibly I'll leave it the way it is, swirls of reddish, glazed terra cotta.
