Scenes from Spain

I was lucky enough to visit the beautiful country of Spain this summer. Here's a few highlights...

Beautiful iron work on the balconies


  Architecture by Antoni Gaudi in Barcelona. Very different from the rest of European architecture.
 
They say it's the origin of the word "gawdy"  ...
 you decide.

 
 
 
 
A cathedral currently under construction in Barcelona to be completed in 2020. Construction started when Gaudi was alive.
 
 

 
 
Personally - I loved his work.
 
 
ooops how did that slip in there?
This bottle came from a beautiful winery that was opened for business in the 16th century and is still operating today!
 
 
There are three Guggenheim museums in the world ...Venice, New York and Bilboa, Spain.
Here are some pictures I took of the outside (no pics inside)
 
 
In case you were wondering what stainless steel tulips look like.
 
 
A puppy made of gorgeous flowers? Yep, they had too!
 
 
And what I admire most about Spain as a decorator - the vivid colors and patterns found everywhere.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Are you still awake? Good for you! Nothing like looking at other people's vacation pictures to make you want to take a snooze:)
 
 So, bare with me for one last group shot in Barcelona in front of the W Barcelona. A must go for a drink and a bite to eat!
 
 
I'm the one in the tribal shorts and black sweater.
And would never have had such a great time if not for this group:)
 
Thanks for reading!! XOXO

  2. Love the photos! I visited the Cathedral about 5 years ago and it made me think of the sandcastles my kids used to make with "dripping" sand! I absolutely loved it! Glad you had a wonderful trip! xo
