Wonderful pictures, thanks for sharing! The charm and age of things in that region of the world always amaze me...

Have fun with your knitting group! :)

Jacqueline

Fab photos, what a sweet little dog. Looking forward to seeing your crafty stuff. Enjoy your knitting group.

Glad you are feeling well enough to go to your knitting group and thank you for sharing your photos.

Fabby photos, Vaness, you must have had a great time. I agree that holidays all too soon seem a distant memory once back home. I was most struck by Hugo's lime green shoes (and that very phallic looking asparagus)!
Hope you enjoy your knitting group and thanks for helping out with the hatty project.

Oof, your images of your holiday are sumptuous - all those delicious things all in a row on a shelf. Those are some very interesting sets of drawers too. Intriguing!

You have made me want to buy a bottle of Rioja. I had forgotten about it's lovely, almost buttery taste.

Liz T,

Wonderful photos - especially the first one. There's so much going on there visually. Hope you have a good time at your knitting night.

Stephie

I stood on the pavement waiting expectantly, hoping they wouldn't forget me...

He's so cute, I want him!

Marg

I was just thinking about Rioja and wondering if I should include it on my itinerary -- I'd like to go to Spain next year if at all possible. Now it's a definite. That blue door is sumptuous! I'm so glad you've shared all these pictures!

I'm overwhelmed! What an amazing selection of photos. I love the rows of jars, the blue door, all those shoes...what was that all about? Why wasn't I surprised to see the little dog?! Glad you are on the mend,
love Penny x

Absolutely breathtaking photos, loved the old doors particularly.

Julie

SPAIN IS VERY BEATIFUL, IT IS MY COUNTRY AND I FEEL PROUD
I WORK IN A WAREHOUSE OF WINES IN SEVILLA, THERE ARE SHERRY WINE (VINOS DE JEREZ), I AM GLAD ABOUT THAT YOU LIKED THEM.
LOVE ANA

Jennyff

Lovely atmospheric photos, especially the ones involving food and eating. No need for words at all.

Kate Bruning

I am still reeling from the jar full of long, strange, white pickled things. Perhaps left-overs of losing matadors? I can't wait to see all you have been up to but in the meantime, I am living vicariously through your photos. Oh Spain.

Calico Kate

Have had a lovely browse and catch up - that fabric shop ah you must have felt you had died and gone to heaven! Useful to have some trusty blokes with you I agree.
Do hope horrid cold fades fast.

Particularly love the picture in the courtyard! It is idyllic, isn't it?
It is a good sign that you are going to your knitting group!
Take care x

Simone

Wonderful photos. All of them! The dog, the food, the shoes, your Mum and Dad and Hugo too!!! Such a lovely looking place. x

Karoline

Gorgeous photos. Glad you're feeling better.

Laura

Beautiful photo montage!

soxanne

Oh, thank you for sharing. I studied in Spain years ago but never went to the Rioja region. How delightful to visit a new corner of one of my favorite places.

Your photos are wonderful!

Lynne

Lovely photos, sounds a great trip. Love the dog ahhhh. What an array of jars!
We could have done with you the other night when we went and did some wine tasting.
