Shots from Sardinia

We're back from vacation! Happy to be home, but already missing the beauty of Sardinia. Here are some HallReady shots to share. This first one is an altar from a church built in the 1300's.
House facades and cafe tiled floors
Agriturismo at its finest. Food fresh from the farm served in this rustic farmhouse.
Sculptures from a precious church in Porto Cervo
The Sardinian crest. Some show blind folds, others show headbands. In the middle of the XVIIIth century, the representation was fixed: the Moors faced left and were eye-banded. A given reason for this is the lack of liberalism of the Piemontese government against the Sardinian population
Porto Cervo Centre had some amazing boutiques. These snapshots are from an interior design shop. Regretfully, I didn't get the name of it because I was running out of there after they asked that I stop taking pictures. This shell shelf is over 13 feet tall.
Coral is quite popular in Sardinia and this display has some beautiful pieces.
This is a matching mantel and mirror set - unbelievable craftsmanship.
Shots from the streets in Cagliari
Our first hotel in Cagliari had the most amazing paper exhibit in the lobby. Here you see paper costumes on manequins placed in a fountain.
