Hello from Barcelona! Okay so I'm not writing this from Barcelona, but I am there right now and that's pretty cool right? I'm writing from the past, like a ghost, or something. Are ghosts necessarily old? ANYWAY! Gaudi! He's really something special.

This week's Lovely Lister is a special one. Michael Arad won the World Trade Center Site Memorial Competition in 2004. His creation will be seen by victims' families this weekend at a special opening ceremony memorializing the 10th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks.

Fred Anhalt here is near and dear to my heart because all his buildings are in my neighborhood in Seattle. In fact, my husband and I looked at several condos in Anhalt buildings while shopping for our place. Oh the drooling, oh the lusting. Oh how I wish I could afford one of his charming, fairy tale units.
