This week for WPC Cheri wants us to appreciate the tiny things in life. I am choosing a few treasures I saw at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

  1. Turkish tiles were the byword for beauty and fine details for centuries and the Mughal fascination with intricate, miniaturized patterns took that art to new heights. Thank you for sharing these pictures Amy, that chimneypiece is particularly breathtaking! 🙂
