During our roadtrip in July we spent a week at Casa Migdia.
A most charming small hotel with only 5 rooms in a village near Girona.
We stayed in room Carmen with a roof terrace and a beautiful green bathroom with a bathtub on legs.
We had a great time and enjoyed the charm of this part of Catalonia and fell in love with this place...

Perk up this rainy Monday!
Self-sown and self-picked garden flowers. What about that gorgeous green vintage chair and bamboo mirror from southern France? J'adore!
If it's not summer outside, so be it inside!

The best summer souvenirs are mostly the flea market finds. It feels good to bring home the wonderful roadtrip memories.
Those vintage finds are more valuable, because you know exactly where you found those treasures and what you did that day and where you had lunch, still after years...
The white iron patio chair, wine jug and some iron table football players we found on a small sunday market on the side of the road in Corçà, near Girona.

This lemon is created by poster artist Michel Bouvet for the 35th edition of the Rencontres d'Arles, one of the largest photography festivals in the world.
Michel Bouvet creates the posters for the festival since 2002. It's a colorful series of fruits, vegetables and animals. The posters contribute to the unique visual communication of the festival.
We picked the lemon from 2004 to take home as a souvenir of the stunning photography festival we visited during our road trip.
The similarity with our lemon rug is awesome!
