Our residence has gotten a bit more of a Mexican touch. Toño's sister Chilo gave us two pieces of flowery embroidery with crisp and clean flower patterns.

If somebody would had told me 5 years ago that I will ever have flowery embroidery with crisp and clean flower patterns in my splendid apartments (and actually like it), I would had beaten the living daylights out of him. I've kind of changed a bit.

It does look rather dashing, but it's probably also my inclined liking for Swiss architecture... What a beautiful gift!

Two beautiful pieces of embroidered fabric. I really like how crisp and clean the flower pattern looks. Flowery? - no, a clear understated floral design of beauty and freshness.

Magnificent dining table!

O.k. Mickle, I've modified the description of the embroidery.

Google does not believe your definition.

Google Fight of "flowery" vs "crisp and clean flower patterns."

Your blog, by the way, contributes significantly to the result.
