Pinned: metal + ink - Pinterest finds that I love

Cuff Marc by Marc Jacobs

At the moment I am deeply in love with all things ink and metal, and as I now have Pinterest at my disposal, I made myself a board. I thought I’d share with you what I have pinned: metal + ink and hope you like it!

Pinned: metal + ink - Pinterest finds that I love

There are so many gorgeous things out there, and I am finding (like many of you no doubt have done before me) that creating boards is a great way to keep track of them! I know, I know… why did I wait so long?!

Well, better late than never, I guess! I’m not sure I’ll get up to much pinning this weekend, because La Mercé’s festivities are kicking off today, but I’m pretty sure, that I’m already a little hooked on the stuff (pins, that is)! If you want, have a look at this board and if you like what you see, check around the other ones I have created so far…

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! (it’s a looong weekend here, so I may enjoy a break and be back on Wednesday)

The bug-eyed guy – Carrer Joaquin Costa

There once lived a bug-eyed guy on Carrer Joaquin Costa (he sold delicious wines to a faithful clientele) who had a lightbulb moment…

… he thought it would be a good idea to ask his friend on Carrer Robí to take good care of all the lightbulb flowers so they could bloom and disperse into the wind…

… for he was hoping they would reach the owl on Passeig de Sant Joan, perched high above the ground, and let him know, that across town, somebody cared about her.

Blocks of blue – Carrer Almogàvers

It’s so big in fashion right now – I wonder if the fashion world got its inspiration from all the blue tones that can be found around Barcelona?

Carrer Pontevedra

When you live by the Mediterranean, you cannot but help to delight in its sparkling colours, and people have been doing so for thousands of years. It’s only natural that such a love for the sea is reflected in the use of its colour  to decorate the surroundings of where people live, and Barcelona is no exception. I’ve been compiling images of blue for you and am sharing them with you today. Ready? Come on, let’s indulge in the blues!
