“My mother (top middle) grew up in Southside Chicago to parents who immigrated from Poland. There are tons of these family photos of my mother and her siblings posing with my grandpa (the one in the ushanka). My uncle Pauly, who was about 13 in this photo is always posing with either a beer or a cigarette. I don’t know, but looking at these photos makes me wonder if everybody was drunk through the 1970’s. I, however, have photos of my grandpa and I posing with kielbasa and ushankas, so I suppose the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”

“My brother & I were none too pleased with the attire or arrangement of the photo. I was a HUGE tomboy who told her she could dress me up but could NOT make me smile. My brother was mad she put the younger/smaller brother in the higher position.”

Frankly, the dog was offended.

“Here’s a lovely picture of vegetables and dip. Oh, yeah, and then my family in the background.”

We love this amazing family project from Lilly, Leon, and baby Orson, which began after they had accumulated a lot of cardboard boxes (due to moving to a new country). The costumes, props, and sets in Cardboard Box Office are created entirely out of everyday household items, toys, cardboard, and three individuals slowly losing their sanity.
