Or create a personal message of your own with framed tiles – initials, names, words, phrases, or nonsense. Whatever you wish is always possible.  Popped into a handmade black painted frame by me in my Hampstead Studio, & ready to hang. You can even put a personal dedication on the back of the frame should you think that is a jolly good idea……..
