Gaudi paving tile...

I meant to mention the tile on the table beside the orchid. It was my favourite gift last year. Our daughter Katy, hence the name Katyboo, bought it for us when we were in Spain in the summer and kept it until Christmas. It is a replica, in my favourite colour, of the Gaudi paving on the Passeig de Gracia. It's beautiful and very special to me.

Gaudí designed a paving stone for the Batlló house (1904-1906), which was finally installed in the Milà house (1906-1910). In the 1970's the Gaudí design was adapted for use on the Passeig de Gràcia avenue.
