Little pink houses

The Bigass Indie Art and Craft Show is over and I've got everything back in my house but boy is it a mess. Need to sort through all the odds and ends and get everything back in its place.

In anticipation of the show I made a bunch of prints of photos I'd never printed before. I'll be listing some of those in my Etsy shop in the coming weeks.

This one, Viola, just went up tonight. The listing is here.

It's a photo on my grandparents' farm in Kansas. The house in the front was the house when I was little. At some point they acquired the house behind it and painted it pink to match the main house. It's named The Little House and it was a studio for my grandparents -- Grandma painted, Grandpa was a photographer.

Years later they added another house (not pictured) to the bunch, and painted it pink, too. It's known as The Shop -- my uncle has various fix-it projects in there, as well as antiques that he sells.

  1. I like that story of your grandparents. I like the pink and the fact that they were a painter and a photographer. How creative and fun it must have been to visit them. BTW, found you through 'Roid Week on flickr :)
