Art @ the Museum

Las Posadas @ MOLAA. Free Courtesy of Target.

Festive cut-outs of mylar wishing us good cheer. 

Perfectly manicured plants - an inspiration for your garden.

Aren't you jealous of California sunshine in December?

One of the sculptures in the atrium.

Cacti and palm trees - so California.

Spy glass mirror reflect Alamitos Street.

Origami snowflakes make us smile.

Alex at the entrance sculpture garden.

Inside the atrium, a giant fork and knife remind you to eat. 

Gorgeous succulents landscape the museum.

Alex just can't help himself when he sees water.

Alex holds an adorable pose in his Dan Zanes Nueva York shirt.

Thank you Target for supporting the arts!

Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow!

A few weeks ago @ the Soco District in Fullerton. 

Let it snow in Southern California!

Alex and about 100 other 7 and unders had

a great time throwing the snowballs in all directions.

We walked by this photography studio but it was closed 

just loved the way they decorated the studio.

Next stop was Tranqil Tea House on Wilshire. 

Nice little modern tea place with exotic teas and gifts

including fantastic French macaroons.

Next to the restaurants in SOCO are antique shops,

they happen to have a mini outdoor sale. My current love is vintage books.

One of our favorites, Badly Drawn Boy singing "The Time of Times"
