Trolley Cars and Sketches

Yesterday for work I was actually involved in a photoshoot for an email my marketing manager wants to launch about what beauty brands and products some of the office girls love.  As a result I went shopping and found this beautiful beaded blouse.  (Please ignore the horrible photo.  Camera is dying).  And I had a chance to wear the little trolly car pendant I found while antiquing a while back.  I sort of forgot about it until yesterday when I found it on my dresser.  I bought it to remind me of our honeymoon which we spent in the Bay area back in October.

Blouse: Forever 21
Jeans: Forever 21
Heels: Target
Necklace: Junked

And of course, like many, I spent last night in awe while watching the opening ceremony for the winter olympics in Vancouver.  I have never been to Vancouver but  I would love to go one day.  When I was young, we traveled to Calgary to see the 1989 Olympic village and it made me fall in love with the winter games.  The most fantastic part of  last night's show in my opinion was all of the Native culture and pictographs represented.  It reminds me when when I used to draw similar characters as a teen and in college.  I have lost many of the ink drawings I used to enjoy doing but, I did manage to scrounge a few of them up that I kept when we moved...(My favorite is the bear.  I have always loved drawing bears)

 drawings all originals by me

Nice drawings! I love Pacific Northwest art. Now I sort of wish I'd watched the opening ceremonies.

Lara, your outfit is so beautiful! that shirt is great and the little trolley necklace! how perfect, and the fact it reminds your of your honeymoon. :)

i'm actually not a french major, just taking it for my language requirements. I choose french (instead of spanish) because there are so many bloggers from france that I adore. being friends with french speaking people on facebook and stuff has really helped... i now try to dissect the words i recognize! that's so sad your g-ma wanted to get away from her heritage so bad... i mean i understand times were tremendously different, but it would have been cool if you learned french when you were little... it's so much easier to learn when your mind is young!
