Anne spotted this shop in the Borne that we now call the little spice market. Her grandfather in Turkey had one just like it, with the exact same bales. So for a flavor of the east without the travel, we get a fix here! On Passeig de Picasso.
Yesterday's proud article on Barcelona's designers. And they picked Benedicte's beautiful tables to REPRESENT. Handmade tiles pressed in the old times by Barcelona's historic artisans, found in the dumpsters. Rescued, bag after bag. Now Benedicte has an incredible collection that she makes into lovely tables for her clients. A piece of history, with a modern flair. www.mesabonita.es
The trashcans in Barcelona are amazing! Every day is trash day. Regular trash, organic trash, recycling, all of them. I take out my trash and leave it in a community bin. Hands free, just step of the lever. BUT, I don't live right next to them because the trucks come by every day. LOUD. Watch out!
