Out of the blue

It’s always fun finding

The quirky side to a new place.

Blue glass.jpg

Ericeira, a small coastal village in Portugal,

Blue me away with its lovely azure glass tiles

Blue hands.jpg

And hand-y door knobs.

Aren’t they just blue-tiful?

  4. The door knockers are adorable. I’ve always like the glass tile, but hadn’t seen any in that shade of blue before. Beautiful indeed.

    Love, love, love…absolutely LOVE these photographs, Fiona! I especially love the beautiful contrast between the crisp white and blue. Just gorgeous! They reminded me of what it also must look like in Greece – white and blue.

    “And hand-y door knobs.”

    Love those door knobs! 🙂

    Have a super week, my friend!
