There is this crazy house (condo? townhouse?) a few blocks away from us that I am fascinated with. You can kind of see inside the gate to what looks like several apartments but its hard to tell. Anyway, all of the walls and the sidewalk surrounding it are covered in mosaic tiles. Most of them are old and faded, the majority are chipped, but I still think it is so beautiful. I tried to make a mosaic vase once. It did not turn out well.
