The Story Behind This Tile
There is a distinct difference between traveling and a vacation. A vacation is intended for relaxation, a respite from the daily grind, usually spent lazily under the sun, or at a dock, or in a recurring family cabin. While vacations sometimes mean wrangling the kids in the car and result in wanting a vacation FROM the vacation, traveling means intentional pushing. Whether alone, alongside a friend, or with family, it often means going someplace never visited before. There is at least some stress in the planning, and a little trepidation in the uncertainty because it's a new place and unfamiliar territory. It's not for the faint of heart. Loving traveling means adopting that uncertainty, and being open to whatever comes your way. Choosing to travel is like riding a bike along cobblestone streets, feeling the handlebars rattle as if they're asking, "What in the world are we doing?" while you navigate new avenues with a hazy idea of a destination in mind, unsure of the terrain, but enjoying the view.

Care & Use
CARE: Enamel artwork is best polished with household glass cleaner and a soft cloth.
DISPLAYING: These delicate yet durable artworks are made to last, resist fading, shine under light, and fire up a meaningful conversation. Spiritiles can stand up on a flat surface or hang on a prized wall. They can stand alone, but love company. Each piece is sized the same to mix and match for a collection that tells your story.
HOW TO HANG: Drywall screws work great! When affixing the screw, leave a -1/4" lip to rest the frame's hollow on the screw head. The art will sit securely and flush with the wall. When hanging multiple pieces, the ideal spacing between screws is 7-1/4" horizontal and 10-1/2" vertical.
