A few weeks ago Tea Collection asked me to take part in their “Across The Street, Across The Globe” series on their blog, and share one of my favorite spots in our area where I love to explore other cultures.  For those of us who aren’t able to travel internationally for various reasons, but still want to expose our children, and ourselves, to various cultures and all they have to offer, what do we do, where do we go, type of post.  IMG_5091 IMG_5020 IMG_5035

I immediately thought of Olvera Street, a Mexican marketplace held on a small street, in the oldest area of Downtown LA.  I’ve been going to Olvera Street since I was a kid and have nothing but amazing memories of school field trips, $1 grab bag goodie bags, snow cones, fresh homemade tortillas, and shopping for huarache sandals.  It’s been quite some time since I last took the kids there by way of the Metro, Sydney was a newborn in fact, so I was ready to reintroduce Olvera Street to them, now that they were older and more aware.IMG_5007 IMG_5005 IMG_5012 IMG_5062

At the Tea Collection blog, Studio T, I’m sharing our day at Olvera Street, and all that we did there.  Please, if you have a moment, head on over and say hi, or ask a question.  It would be awfully nice to see a friendly face over there.  Here are a few pictures of our day, and I share some more over there.

Thanks and have a great day!



That looks like so much fun! And it’s always nice to share childhood memories with our own children. 🙂


I would love tips on how to wear oversize shirts/tanks like that. Especially if you have a short torso. I tried on that tank and it looked like a maternity top on me since it was so long!
