The Orchid: Oma & Otta's House


The Orchid: Oma & Otta's House

This is my tribute to my German grandparents Gustav and Anna Sloboda and their simplistic way of life. It is a work in progress, but I have found dolls which resemble them both, along with my little brother Brian when he was yet a toddler, and myself as a young girl in loop braids. This is only a small representation of their home which was a bit more modern as well as much larger, but combined with many of the items that could actually be found in their house (like the Heidi Ott replica of Oma's treadle sewing machine in her sunshine filled sewing room, their tiny kitchen, or my Otta's false teeth soaking in a small, clear dish on the bedroom dresser) along with an air of the charms and traditions of "the old country", this dollhouse serves to capture my dearest memories of them both.
