Yesterday, at midday, we went for a walk around the Prado museum. In the background (picture above) you can see the entrance to the Botanical garden. I have been in the Prado museum and the Botanical garden several times, and wouldn't mind visiting one more time, but this time we just went sightseeing.
|Some posters displaying what will on the Prado soon.|
Across the paseo del Prado, there are many small restaurants which offer typical Spanish food including delicious "tapas".

This restaurant is on Gloucester Road, Kensington, London. Well, it's my interpretation of a restaurant I saw last February. What I love about it are the little details, like the plants, lamps, the decorated door.....

If you have followed my posts for a while you must have noticed by now that I like white. It has become sort of an obsession. Everything has to be white. Here you have some white paper flowers that I made using recycled paper from my printer. I got some tree branches from a park, painted them white with acrylic paint and then used a white-off wrapping string to make a stigma and wrap the petals around the stigma. I also used the wrapping string to decorate a mason jar where I have put my white flowers.

Tita's family was in the process of moving to a new house so she decided to sit on a bundle of cardboard boxes. The best place to supervise everybody's work. Don't you think?

I've just finished decorating my paint box with découpage. On one side the city and on the other side the countryside.

again of a spectacular dawn in Paracuellos de Jarama. I think it was about 7.20 in the morning. Hope you like them too.

My screensaver was designed by my much admired Gennine. She gives one for free every month. One day -who knows- I will design my own screensavers and give them away to my readers.

I love Alma's expression when she goes hunting. That tail pointing to the sky and that stealthy way of walking.

Last Saturday, on our way to a Moroccan restaurant, we came across a really nice craft store where they sell rice paper for découpage. I saw it through the window-shop and I got really excited. We went in and bought two sheets of paper. Of course, it had to be something with animals.
The idea is to cut out the designs and glue them onto a box, a piece of furniture, etc. I don't know what I'll do with it, but I makes me so happy just to look at the designs.
By the way, it had to be Italian. They always have such a good taste. This is their website.

Mark and I went out for lunch on Saturday. On our way to a Morrocan restaurant (yes, I got a coupon) I couldn't help to start making pictures with my iPhone. I know the pics aren't great (too much light) but I wanted to share them with you so badly. There were such beautiful details all around us. For example, these drawings on the walls of a Pharmacy on Lope de Vega street.
Then, a beautiful old bakery. So full of colors and delicious bread and cakes!
To the left museum Lope de Vega, a very important Spanish playwright and poet of the16th century.
This is a home decor shop. Really nice, but pricey.
