Vermicular! Worms!! A little history…the Ancient Roman term “vermiculatus” described a pattern “inlaid as if in the tracks of worms,” which has been used in architecture and design for centuries.  Originally carved into stone as surface ornament, the pattern was adopted into global textile design, seen in both Western patterns as well as most notably in the background of Indian palampores. Centuries later, we’re still fans of this decorative motif!

Mid-Summer Hiatus

On Sunday night Team TF returned from a mid-summer hiatus to Spain.  Itinerary included 24 hours in Madrid and 4 days at Cap Rocat resort on the island of Mallorca.  Now back stateside (with our Spanish guitar streaming on pandora), we are totally re-energized and ready to finish out an exciting end to our summer!

Some snapshots from the trip…

Each room had a private palapa facing the sea…

…and each morning a basket of delicious goodies was delivered to the room for breakfast on the palapa.

We mastered the art of relaxation…
