tiles of Porto

if you live in Porto and the facade of your house is missing a tile or two you can go to this amazing place
called Banco de Materiais where they salvage tiles and other materials
from buildings that are to be demolished or modified.
It's a great place where you can get an idea of the various tile patterns
- I don't need to mention that fact that my favourite where the blue and white ones....

Joao Bruno

we stayed in a lovely place in Evora
- where my attention was immediately captured by the headboard -
after a little enquiry I discovered that it was the work of Joao Bruno, a local yarn artist

see his blog here
