♥ Bella Spain !

Antennas in SevilleBy wearethree

I wanted to blog about a particular country sellers for the longest time! SPAIN! Oh,how I love their crafts and wonderful handiwork! There aren't much of them, I did a Local search and it came up only 9 pages of sellers. I feel they are one of the most colorful and vibrant culture around. I really want to go Spain one day but I always end up in France ( guilt trips...;P). Anyway, here are some of my favorites from various Spanish sellers. Let me take you on a trip to Spain wearing my old jersey tee shirt and cotton pants with my cat on my lap. Let me pretend I am from some fancy magazine and I am doing an Editor's Favorite Page. LOL!!!! This is one of the big perk of having my own blog! First we'll drink some sangria, stop for shoes, bags and accessories !

Silk brooch - Leaves

Both By gilbea 

Editor's Notes : I always felt Spanish designer emphasis a lot on bold colors and classic clean elegant cut on their work. These two items are simply lovely, they look like they could have came from an expensive boutique. Will think about getting the brooch for my sister-in-law who work as a lawyer, this should compliment her jackets nicely.
