Here are some more, including one of the others I bought, "The Art of Tea." Looking at that page, I am sorely tempted to also buy some of the other dress ones, esp. the carrot dress and the fuschia dress, but I think I have indulged myself enough -- perhaps someone will buy them for me as a gift someday. :-) Oh, here's the artist's official website, with tile trivet gallery.

Lots of cleaning, laundry, dishes, that sort of thing. I actually made the bed, which happens, oh, once in a blue moon. Kevin and I discussed a possible home decorating project -- adding sari fabric panels to our bedroom ceiling.
