Tiles and Tools

Gathering more inspiration from old tiles. Most of them cover the walls of crumbling buildings in the historic part of the city.

Lovely vintage pieces in a tiny shop downtown. Window shopping walk last weekend.

Instants I

1 - The confy chair of a street vendor in the book market downtown.

2 -  A glimpse of blue sky over our heads.

3 - Attention caught by an interesting photo. Cool place.

5 - Cool cat owner and her funky cat.

6 - Overcrowded electrical wires, full of pigeons sitting side by side. As they should.

Late brunch in a lovely place

A lazy morning was the best excuse to go out for brunch. We tried a new place, in a lovely and quiet neighbourhood called Praca das Flores (literally 'the flowers square'). Afterwards we walked towards the downtown area, always choosing unknown streets. Found really lovely places. More photos of this walk on a next post. Have a great Easter everyone!

Urban interventions

The way people intervene in the city they live in tells a lot about the underlying issues going on. It is a good exercise to look at things from a new point of view.

It is possible to find beauty everywhere.

A really awesome shop

The traditional shop "A Vida Portuguesa" (it means: the portuguese life) opened last summer its second space in Lisbon. Even more beautiful than the first one. Filled with old and new products, all made in Portugal. Love it. Bought one basket, already dreaming with long beach days ahead...
