Love Is Enough

 

I think this is gorgeous! It is a 9cm terracotta plaque, which Liz gave me for my birthday. Thank you family.
The tile is based on a design by William Morris for his "Dove and Rose" silk and wool textile of 1879, and the phrase was the title of his second book of poems.
The tile is frost resistant and will be hung outside at Cornerstones [I have chosen a spot already]
It was made by a family-run company in Bath called Black Dog. I saw some of their tiles on sale in Southwark Cathedral the other week. There are some lovely tiles available in their extensive range- I particularly like St Julian of Norwich, the Bretons Fisherman's Prayer, the Tudor House Blessing, and St Patrick's Prayer ...
There remains faith, hope and love - but the greatest is love

  6. Oh gosh, I actually have one of their tikes, bought back in the late 70s or early 80s! It was a newer business back then. They still carry what I have, " here lives a very fine cat indeed!" A gift from my parents when we lived in the UK. The one your daughter gave you is lovely. Celie

  8. I like these very much and have looked through their interesting website. I'll soon be asked for Father's Day gift suggestions. For once I'll have one!

  9. We have "...a very fine cat..." tile too, but it was from a friend's father's house after he had died. I don't know when it was bought. I am enjoying planning who I will buy these tiles for! Lovely designs.
