What!? Urban cross-stitching… oh my word. This is the work of Spanish artist/set designer Raquel Rodrigo. Wire mesh and some very colorful rope working together to create lovely gardens on the walls around Madrid. Sigh. Yeah, I need her roses all over the front of my house.

    Love your blog and the podcast. Every day there is new inspiration to be had. 🙂

    SO beautiful and romantic. An extra beautiful contrast against the cracking walls and graffiti.
