Ocean Beach Randomness

Ricky and I recently attended the 30th annual Ocean Beach Chili Cookoff and Streetfair a couple of weekends ago. It is one of the biggest occasions for our community because they shut down the entire business district from Sunset Cliffs Blvd to Abbott ave on Newport for live music, great food, and street vendors. These pictres are of a community block painting you could buy into for $5 a square. I have noticed numerous murals all around town before but never knew where they came from.

On our walk home, I snapped a picture of a new additon to our neighbors yard. This plywood cutout stands about 10+ feet tall and his message changes every week or so. This one says "Will work for Peace".

Octopus Baby Bedding

I finished my crib bedding a couple of weeks ago and have yet to post pictures to show off all my handiwork! I picked up a pattern for the bumper and bed skirt, and made a quilt and bed sheet from my own design.
