Several years ago Hubby and I took a tour of Spain.
It was wonderful!
We went to Granada and saw
the magical Alhambra.
We toured on to Seville and Escorial (where all the Kings of Spain are buried)
We went to Toledo
- I found this city mindblowing
and almost impossible to describe......
the awe-inspiring feeling standing in what had been a Mosque with pillars etc plundered from..
all over the Mediterranean.
There was a complete Christian Cathedral inside
which only took up
an iota of the space....incredible!!
So many more places...
We had excellent guides with us through out.
Each experts in that particular region
As we went I collected
a few of these plates as mementos!
Some large.......some small
The ones on the wall.......
are all hand painted
with gold paint...
some of them are signed by the artist
These two little ones are cheap ones
that I use as coasters.
I had quite a few
unfortunately all but these are broken.
I think I had better put them to better use
So which do you like best?
They are all lovely.........
but this is mine!
