in color

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.

Renegade Craft Fair

this past weekend we headed to Chicago for the Renegade Craft Fair Holiday Sale. we met lots of nice folks, ate good food, and had good times. here are a few photos from the weekend:

maybe next time we won't start our drive at 2am during the first snow storm of the year. but it sure was pretty...

stuck in snow traffic somewhere on I-65.

the fair was at the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse, which looked like a lil gingerbread house on the outside...

and like an old elementary school/renaissance theater on the inside.

our booth.

our friend/boothmate Tiffany, of Darling Handmades

Nate (Mr. Darling Handmades)

familiar faces! we were happy to be right across from Louisville pal Laura Fauna. and she brought her lovely mom.

more Louisville pals! Mary Yates & Ron Jasin (Mr. Mad Pixel.)

heaps of thanks to Jess, Carly, Mary, and their kitty for letting us stay with them & introducing us to cupcakes in ice cream cones.
