This post is about my attraction to Portuguese Tiles.
The Moors had their hand in the original designs, including patterns and colors.
Below you will see some applications done with these works of art.
This will always be my kind of style....it is forever!!

What do you think of some of these super old designs.
Most are from the 12th century and later.
I have never seen the Portuguese tile done in this color-way. I am in love all over again.
I NEED THESE. These are actually enameled Moorish tiles
When I was a teen and I walked into 'Country Floor Tiles....'
If you are smitten, you find someone so attractive that you are or seem to be in love with them.
They were totally smitten with each other
If you are smitten by something, you are very impressed by it and enthusiastic about it.
I was never a blue person really.
But I was at the design center in Manhattan in the late 70's , there was this very dark walnut square cocktail table with Portuguese Tile in the center. I was of course drawn to it. So I inquired ,and it turned out that Anne Bancroft had originally ordered it because she was going to be in a show on Broadway and needed to furnish an apartment. The show was cancelled and she never took possession the table. Guess who did take possession????
That's right. Me!!!
I had it for many years until I gave it to my cousin who being the idiot that he is....
lost it or gave it away. I mean that in the nicest way - snicker, snicker.
