Eggs and chicks

Barcelona Cute Suite Easter Shop Window at Escribà

Eye spy…

Remember Easter as a child? Hunting for eggs, painting them in all sorts of colours? Breakfast tables decorated with flowers, eggs and chicks and bunnies? These days Easter is not a holiday I celebrate in any meaningful way, other than to relish having a few days off, but I have fond memories of the way we celebrated it when I was a child. Trawling around my photo archives recently, I came across a few images that brought me right back to those days in a flash, so it seems a good idea to share them with you here, today.

Taken in March 2010, they show the shop window of Escribà (their shop on Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes 546) which was decorated for Easter. Done in a very simple way, and eschewing the usual overdose of Monas de Pascua that most pastry shops tend to have, instead, Escribà focused on two things: eggs and chicks. In a BIG way. And I love it! If you’re in Barcelona, check out what they have done for this shop window this year, for no doubt it will be interesting. And if you’re not, check out the Escribà website. It’s cute!

Happy Easter everyone! Enjoy the long weekend, and see you here, on Tuesday!

La Rambla

Last Sunday was Palm Sunday and for the believers among Barcelona’s locals, that meant going to La Rambla to one of its flower stalls to buy a palm branch. Not just any old palm branch though, most branches on sale have been woven into intricate patterns and shapes, so what people are getting is a bit of palm art! Check it out…

Carrer del Carme 3

Isn’t it funny how sometimes you stumble on something that makes your day? I was running some errands yesterday, and just a couple of streets from the Cute Suite, I happened to notice this lovely shop. It’s been there for a while, on Carrer del Carme number 3, but I usually just walk past it without stepping inside…
