A Puzzle

Some treasures don't require a map so much as a little elbow grease.  I've been trying to force myself to clean out and organize more in the storage room the past few days.  Bleh!  It's an awful task that I have to force myself to get up and do a bit at a time.  But today's effort paid off!!  I found a box of Mexican Talavera tile pushed into the back corner of the furnace section of my storage room.  I am a long-time Talavera fan so this is a real treasure!

Now let's solve the puzzle and figure out how I can put them together for an art piece on one of my bare family room walls...  Once I have a layout I'll figure out what to back them with, how to adhere them and what to frame it with.  If you have thoughts on that, I'd love to hear them as well..  All are 4" square and glazed with some combination of a pale off-white and rather deep true shades of blue, green and yellow.

To work with, I have: 

3 in this pattern of blue and off-white.

5 that are plain off-white with no pattern at all.

5 in this pattern of blue and yellow on off-white.

25 of this pattern with blue, yellow and green on the off-white background.

Ideas anyone?

I would cover a large country style kitchen table with them... they are absolutely fabulous! What a wonderful find.
