Salamanca and Frigiliana Design Inspiration

A shell wall motif in Salamanca.

 
Even house numbers there are lovely...

 
...and you know how I feel about vaulted ceilings!



(Remember this one?......and when I used it for inspiration here?)

Torre del Gallo was full of elements that would make wonderful felt projects...

 
...including the brick-like design on this enormous wooden cathedral door!

 
My traveling companions thought I was mad...

...but I just had to capture a view of this wonderful brass sidewalk decoration...

 
...and this very elegant manhole cover! :)

Travels do inspire creations. Your posts of Bristol were great. That remind me some 10 years ago I walked under the bridge with my son. It was adventurous.

It doesn't matter what or where you find inspiration for your projects. It's just wonderful that you do, and then make the most amazing things using those ideas. Lovely photos, and even I can see the beauty in the vaulted ceilings and brick-like design on the door. :)

Sandie--I've been very lucky this summer...to have seen so many wonderful things!

It's amazing how you find the artful things in life and implement them in your creations. Takes a special skill to do that!
