I have redone the Golden Lily backsplash to make it more scalable. By that, I mean that it is seamless in both directions allowing you to add rows and columns to fit the size of your space.

Golden Lily Backsplash

Earlier this year, I did the same thing with the Strawberry Thief backsplash in two colors.

Also new this month, new A.R. Valentien Santa Barbara wildflowers, including the Humboldt Lily that can only be found on the Channel Islands. And finally managed to get the California Thistle done.

Tiles I Hope to Work on in September.


I've started work on nests, kitchen herbs, and possibly fish. Kitchen herbs are probably more important but I am enjoying the nests. Meanwhile, do see the Ladies' Flower Garden of Ornamental Annuals

I don't send notification emails because people get enough impersonal emails.

If I have your mailing address, I will send an occasional postcard featuring a tile with an interesting backstory. I intend that these will be pretty enough for bookmarks and not make their way immediately to a landfill.

You can get updates on featured tiles at William Morris Tile as well as on Twitter and Facebook.

I say to you that earth and heaven are not two but one; and this one is that which ye know,
and are each one of you a part of.... unless ye slay it.
~William Morris, A Dream of John Ball

Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. ~William Morris
