I found this lovely Art Nouveau tile in Google Images. The lady is a Flickr-free-to- use image from "Contrary Mary".

  2. Hi Marie, we're not often in the same challenges so i don't visit as often as I should. But when I do visit, I visit. I mean I don't stop at one entry, I go sailing backward into your delightful challenge art. This SPA is so elegant. I love that tile and the way you used it behind the lady. I am always amazed at the versatility of your abilities... going from zetti to elegance in no time at all. Beautiful variety.

  18. hi there, just FYI, this tile is an original design by contemporary tile designer, Mary Philpott, of Verdant Tile. It is not an antique, but is named 'art nouveau poppy tile' You may want to note that. Thanks.
