solistone has an amazing mission line of hand-painted ceramic tiles. if these were porcelain i would use them on my front steps, but where i live it is not a good idea to use ceramic outside. they pop off in the winter...which is what the previous owner's of my house used. suck. BUT, i could use these when i decide to redo my kitchen. wouldn't these look cute in my little meditteranean stucco house?! i think so. i like taking into consideration the historical finishes that would have been in my house and modernizing them a little. see the rest of the line here.
