an icy morning on thursday = the first weekday i've had off in awhile.
i spent some time looking at these photos from the Library of Congress. They were taken by FSA photographers during the Great Depression and were part of a 2006 exhibit called "Bound for Glory: America in Color".
in school, i remember lots of time spent studying black & white photographs by the FSA photographers, but I don't remember even a mention of color photos from the Depression. i think seeing this era in color makes it seem even more real & relatable-- and not just distant people living in an antique black & white world a million years ago.
and i love seeing all of those patterned fabrics and papered walls in color! so much to look at. these are just a few of heaps of photographs you can look at HERE.
we did a couple of craft fairs this month--Bloomington Handmade Market and the Crafty Supermarket in Cincinnati. there was a great turnout at both events and tons of supportive people & great handmade things. we were so busy we forgot to take any photos. dang.
but here is one of a couple of new prints we made for Cincinatti.
oh, and here is a new one of mr. scampers. now we're busy getting ready for the Renegade Craft Fair Holiday Sale in Chicago coming up in a couple of weeks. so much to do and so many Thanksgiving feasts to eat!
