snippets of saturday morning sants

Sants is the area in Barcelona where I stay when I'm there. It used to be a small town outside of the medieval city, these days it wouldn't even be considered a suburb, it's almost downtown. Nonetheless, it retains a bit of a town feel, with a little old square the park, a big shopping street and a couple of food markets. I snapped a few pictures in the sun on my final day there. Actually I'll be back very soon, and this blog is turning out to be based in Barcelona more than London at the moment, which is not at all an accurate portrayal of my life. So one more Barcelona post tomorrow, and then I'll try and treat you to the grey skies and constant drip for a few weeks. Or maybe it will snow again!

I'm loving the building with the green facade. In fact, I love the entire photo. The angle and all the lines are really neat.

Re: Loons, chickadees, egrets... I wonder if all Emilys like the same birds! ;)

Oh I don't really mind your Barcelona posts, it makes me remember the great week I had in that amazing places. Loved the pictures, the buildings' balconies are one of my favourite architectural features I love about Barcelona!
Thank you for the velvet dress tip! I really like it, added to my favourites, though I really can't buy anything else since I got the Zara boots. I'll leave the velvet dress for when I'm there, maybe we can search for one together! :)

hey! you are such a lucky girl!
this week I've been writing posts on a whim and then i get self conscious about and them and delete them later. I'll try and not do this anymore!
I'm not a perfectionist in any area of my life but my blog posts and i always want them to be better.

Also WOW! Thank you SO much for putting me up on your blog roll - you are on mine too! I just love how incredibly supportive you are!

Oh I know, those kelly green tights are so bright they're ridiculous. The rust ones are so subdued compared to them. Apparently, I'm just very silly when it comes to these things.

If you really like Sufjan Stevens, I think the new album will grow on you. While I enjoy it, it won't ever take the place of ''Greetings from Michigan'' or ''Seven Swans'' as my favorite. However, he's just so good with everything he does. Hats off to that man.

Hummingbirds are a favorite of mine, as well. And, robins, blue jays and geese.

The pastries have me drooling and the sunny photos, especially the one looking up, up, up, the facade of the apartment building warm my chill bones.

Next trip, I'm hiding in your luggage. In a totally noncreepy way, of course. :)

Hope your weekend has been golden, swissy missy. ;)
