I went out searching today for an open coffee shop to get my afternoon latte. I happened upon this little alley garden. A few snapshots:

The camellias are already blooming, along with the last roses of the season…Hope you had a lovely holiday…

  1. oh!! i wish i were…i don't leave for paris until jan. 20!…more importantly, where are YOU ms. lenore nevermore?

  2. Oh Tina! These are lovely! I always love your polaroids. I am semi-suprised you found something open on Christmas Day. I guess in a major city it is very different, but around here, nothing is open on Christmas, litterally nothing.

  3. Oh, I wish I could be in the warmth. Merry Christmas to you and a Happy New Year. Just discovered your blog recently and really love it. Sabine x

  4. Very nice. But I must say, we Americans do like to rush things. The holiday is NOT over! Happy Boxing Day to our Commonwealth neighbors & friends…and it is still the 12 Days of Christmas. I refuse to have down all this stressing for only one day. Happy Christmas season everyone!

  5. Lovely pics! I wasn't as determined as you, I ended up settling for a McDonald's iced coffee yesterday because everything else was closed haha

  6. Oh, I was talking about going to LA yesterday with a friend, and those pictures are really convincing! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

  7. Hi Tina, hey was wondering which Iphone app you use to make polaroids. I trying to figure out the difference between Polarize or Shakeit?
    any ideas.
