Little Pink Houses

"Little Pink Houses" for me and you. That's how the song goes anyway.
My house for the Cloth Paper Scissors Home Sweet Home reader  challenge has a personal message. Farm land around my rural home is disappearing. The lush fields are being turned into housing plans. Three farms clustered together were bought by three different developers. Two have houses and lots for sale. A Third has broken ground. Why I'm not sure since the other two can't sell what they have.

My Little Pink House is covered in news paper ads for real estate. I gave it a wash of pink paint and added pictures and words. A bit of  black and pink metallic paint were used as high lights.

The American dream of home ownership takes on an ugly face as more and more green space is consumed while older neighborhoods are abandoned and left to decay.

A lovely field.......never more.
