Home from the hills

We’ve returned from two weeks in southern Spain. It was a wonderful trip — there is so much to learn about the world… Coming from a place blanketed in snow, we had visions of sunshine, sangria, espadrilles and floppy summer hats. Alas, it was cold and rainy most of the time, so that I wore everything I brought pretty much every day. But never mind. With so much to experience, what does it matter how many tee shirts one is wearing?

Our interest was in the overlay of Roman, Visigoth, Muslim, and Catholic cultures which you can see in the architecture of Seville, Cordoba and Granada. Roman columns and Visigoth capitals scarfed for a tremendous mosque that now has a Baroque church plunked down in the middle of it, for example.

But naturally, cracking the tapas code was high up on the list as well!

Granade bar

A bar in central Granada where we had the most delicious ham in the world.

It was fabulous to be away, and so lovely to be home now.

Welcome to my blog where I write about the art and craft of my business.My goal is to make beautiful things, to make art part of everyday life, and to make my friends and family smile. Not necessarily in that order.
