24-hour flash contest: Win my first Save the Pink Bathrooms pink poodle collage

Update: We have a confirmed winner, Dulcie, whose number came up when I spun the random.org random number generator.  Her comment was so happy, too:

That collage is the cutest! I don’t have a crafty/artsy bone in my body and I admire people who do.

Here’s my contribution to leave some happiness – or at least a bemused smile. My bathroom isn’t pink, but it is unusual in a different way. I currently have 40 4-day old baby chickens in my bathtub. I couldn’t find any other good, safe place to keep them so the cats wouldn’t eat them. They should only be there for about a week, but in the meantime, using the bathroom is a major adventure at my house.

Thanks, everyone, for playing. I’m planning more giveaways — and they may be Flash Contests like this — so it pays to reader Retro Renovation daily! 😉
Just for fun: A 24-hour flash contest. As in, flash mob (not flasher). On Wednesday night, I finished the first collage in my big fat retro crafty office now-remodeled.  It’s a Save The Pink bathrooms collage on a 6″ craft board notched for hanging. The background is vintage wallpaper from a stash that I bought on ebay a few years ago, and the pink poodle is from the fabulous roll of vintage vinyl poodle wallpaper that an amazingly kind reader sent me a few years ago. I cut out poodle Fifi with my cutter bee scissors; I like to cut. The flowers are die cut from altered photographs from my “Grace” collection (long story, which I’ll tell some other time.)

Read on for the contest rules — contest ends 10:30 p.m. Friday night!:

How to enter:

  • Leave a Comment that shares some Happiness.
  • You must be in the U.S., so sorry the hassle of shipping overseas is too much for me.
  • I will close the contest at 10:30 p.m. Eastern on Friday night, choose a winner by random.org random number generator on Saturday morning and email the winner over the weekend. Winner must respond within one week. If they do not, I will choose another winner.
  • I will post the name of the winner at the top of this post as soon as they confirm.

Other details:

  • I have never tried to hang one of my collages made with vintage wallpaper in a bathroom environment. I make no promises that it won’t curl up and dye. 🙂
  • This one is my first… it’s not “perfect”. But it’s my first! If I become president, and they want it for the presidential library, you’ll be a gazillionaire. :0

    The pink was removed from our 1955 bathroom long ago (not by us), and we don’t have a poodle, but we do have a Catahoula Leopard Dog that loves to hang out in our gray bathroom. A pink poodle would be a lovely addition.
    PS…we still have our beloved original Youngstown Kitchen cabinets, though.

    Happiness is planning a 60’s party in honor of my 1963 Mercury Comet being built 50 years ago this month. It is also prepairing for a retro bathroom renovation with an AMAZING vintage boomerange vanity. 🙂

    My five year old son asked me, while dozing off to sleep, if [my] Grandma Helen was an ape. Happy he knows about evolution, and that he makes me laugh. P.S. My Grandma had a pink bathroom and was not an ape.

    My brother and sister in law have a pink retro bathroom and they would love this!
