a car show and some yarn bombing

A couple of weekends ago we went to a fun little vintage car show at Farmers Market in Los Angeles. Well first we had breakfast there at our favorite spot, Loteria Grill.  Chilaquiles Verdes with fried eggs! nummers! 

We like to eat our breakfast leisurely and read the paper - there was a short column about an exhibit at the Craft and Folk Art Museum (just blocks from Farmers Market) - a yarn bombing exhibit. The local group had bombed the outside (don't worry, they bombed it with yarn and granny squares!) of the museum and I wanted to see it, so we drove over to see it after the car show.

Even the parking meter had been bombed ...

It was a fun and colorful day!

  1. What fun pics, Sally - breakfast out and touring around - perfect!

  2. Sally, I love the yarn bombing! How cool is that! Glad you got to see it so in turn we get to see it. Love it! I always enjoy the vintage car shows, the Gilmore car (van?) is great! What is Chilaquiles Verdes?

  3. Great photos! We love going to car shows! It's been a while, but we've been thinking of starting to go again this summer!

    Thanks for sharing! Love the Granny Squared!

  4. We love old cars and I loved seeing the car with Shoney’s tray left on the car by the carhop, so sixties! I enjoyed all your photos, thanks for sharing. A little late but a happy Rednesday to you and a great weekend.

  5. What a treat it was to go to a drive in during the 60's. Love your photo!

  6. simply beautifully captured shots…lovely!

  7. It's dating me - but, I so remember driving up to Oscars and the girls putting the trays on the window of the car. It was such a fun thing to do. I remember the roller skates, too. When I was little, and skating around the neighborhood - it was a fun thing to pretend - that I was a roller-waitress taking food to the cars! Gosh - things have changed!
