Growing up in the West End of Hartford, we three sisters have a pretty clear house obsession. Our neighborhood is full of grand old Victorian homes with beautiful porches, shutters, columns, woodwork detailing, stained glass, and the like. With so many beautiful styles, it is hard to pick a favorite, and we are sure everyone in the 'hood thinks that their house is the best!
With that in mind, we have started offering beautiful, one-of-a-kind house drawings. We are so lucky that Addy is not only a very talented artist, but also enjoys working with very, very tiny details! Look at this gorgeous rendering she did recently of a neighbor's lovely home.

|Drawings are available double matted and framed|
These drawings make a wonderful and very thoughtful gift for anyone who loves the unique, architectural details of his or her home. Or you can buy one for yourself and display it with love and pride!
Similarly, we also offer matted pen & ink drawings as fun and artistic guest books for weddings, anniversaries, vow renewals, you name it! This drawing below was done for a couple who were married at this incredible old barn in Vermont. Addy drew every detail perfectly and guests at the wedding signed their names and left "leaf" thumbprints on the trees! You can check out more gorgeous images from this wedding here (planned by our awesome friends at Whim Events).

There are so many wonderful things about being a letterpress AND design studio, one of which is that anything Addy draws or Rory designs can be turned into a plate! Once we have a house drawing completed, we can order a plate of the image and make custom personalized stationery. We can't think of anything lovelier (in this digital age) than sending a hand-written, thoughtful note on your own "home" letterpress stationery. Addy did this with her own wedding invitations, so we know first hand how beautiful the result can be!
If you are interested in ordering a custom house drawing or a pen & ink guest book from us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love for your house to find a home with Hartford Prints!
