Colorful Tiles From Taylor & Ng

I just happen to have found a few of these colorful tiles and tile trivets from Taylor & Ng, San Francisco fairly recently.
They were designed by Win Ng ( Like the name ? I do!)
I love the artwork; it's so original and unique.
I'll start with this one, found in May at a Goodwill in Oregon.
 I almost didn't buy it, but I ended up grabbing it after all.
Too cute and colorful to resist - "Chicken In A Basket"
I've had this next one, below, for a while.
 Most of the ones I've seen are from 1982.
 "Strawberry Snail":
I also found "Doggie Do Good" while we were traveling:
This is a smaller one "Kitty Katfish" -  pretty "kute"!
I believe this one, "Rascal Rabbit" was the first one I ever found:
But then - more recently - I found the small tile trivet and the coffee mug to match!
I was able to find a picture of one other online.
This one isn't mine , "Whopper Whale":
 Aren't they great?

A Few Needlepoint Pictures From The Thrift Shops

I just wanted to share some needlepoint pictures today that I have found at thrift stores.
Let's start with the one below; I just framed it yesterday. I found the unframed piece at a thrift store on our trip in May, and, as often is the case, I had the perfect frame for it at home already:
 ( I think in the photo it looks small, it's actually 8X10".)
I also found this pretty still life recently:
And this cottage scene:
Those two were already framed, but the last one is another where I had a frame that fit the piece perfectly and framed it myself:
Muted colors, bright colors - they're all pretty to me!
