Tuesdays of Texture : Week 20

The craftmanship in this walkway is a very effective design,made with the smooth light and dark stones. ย  Lots of texture under your bare feet when you walk in the sun in sunny Marbella in Spain, and there’s even a leaf or two in the photo! ย  This was in a beautiful plaza, and look at the amazing tiled bench, just made for sitting on to watch the world go by!

And on to another Spanish village, this time Mijas, a traditional white village on the Costa del Sol, where we spotted this ceramic map of the world – such a clever idea!

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Lines to Patterns

The gravel driveway in my garden makes an interesting pattern against the grass that needs to be cut, and the last of the summer flowers.

I love the patterns in this plate, and also the etching on the crystal vase

Everyday things make a good subject, when you look more closely, like this tablecloth

or my floor tiles

and my new hobby, I have started to knit, small simple things now, though I may progress to more complicated things once the long nights kick in, I might be able to combine knit one, purl one, with reading blogs!

Weekly Photo Challenge : Pattern

Pattern can be found in many aspects of my life – it seems I am more of a pattern than a plain person.

Here are some of my wall hangings/floor coverings/table cloths, that I found in Africa:Image

The above is a piece of material I found one Christmas time many years ago, and it has been used on our table for Christmas dinner every year for a long time – who could not feel festive when looking at it!.Image

My wall hangings are more examples of the pattern that can be found in African art, guaranteed to brighten any home.
