[Entries now closed] Win a “Love The House You’re In” custom collage … like Amy’s

Update, Monday, May 31: We have a winner — congratulations, Robin L.  — who has been notified and is whoopdedoo happy. 🙂 ENTRIES NOW CLOSED.  Watch for another contest – different question – same prize – a “Love The House You’re In” custom collage made by our collage artist laureate Mel Kolstad – in June.

Amy was the first winner of a “Love The House You’re In” custom collage made by our collage artist laureate Mel.  That’s Amy’s wonderful house… and Amy’s husband’s vintage truck… all interpreted by Mel. This is such a fun contest — let’s do it again. To enter this month:

  2. And, subscribe to my newsletter. Yes, this helps me build my newsletter list… I send ’em out max twice per week.

Please read all the rules here before entering. I’ll pick a reader next Monday morning.

    Our Cape Cod was built in 1955. It still has the original Youngstown Kitchen cabinets, which we love.

    1948. A cottage influenced by some “Cliff May” ideas, though I don’t think an actual design from his company. We’re repairing it, mostly, at this stage. And we’re demolishing some poorly built or utterly worn-out later additions and changes. The interior will have 1930s and 1940s items in it–what might have been originally installed and what might have been brought in on moving day. 🙂

    What a lovely idea!

    My husband and I just purchased our first home (a wideline high ranch) and this would be perfect to display in our living room! This would be a gift to my Husband for his Birthday as well <3

    Our house was built in 1951 and is a red brick ranch. We’ve decorated the entire inside in mid cent modern on our shoestring budget. We LOVE IT!!!

    Our house was built in 1950. We bought it two years ago at auction after the original owner/builder passed away. Everyone says “when are you going to get new kitchen cabinets?” I put on my horrified face and say “I LOVE my 1957 St. Charles blue kitchen!”

  6. Bex says:

    My house was built in 1957. 3 Bedroom ranch with a full pink bathroom and a 1/2 blue bathroom. I bought it 7 years ago from the original owner – whose father was a master carpenter. Every bedroom has a lined cedar closet. One of my favorite things about the house is the stairs into the attic. They are hidden in the closet by the front door. You have to remove the coat bar (and coats) to get to the door. Also, there’s a sunroom that I’m tranforming into the tiki room.

    We live in a beautiful raised ranch that was built in 1964. It has nice mid-century details such as the hanging pendant lights in the entry (both inside and out) and the roman brick fireplace. I call it my “Brady Bunch” house! The main bathroom has its original “boomerang” pink formica. Our biggest challenge right now is to find a moderately priced, but appropriate bannister for the front stairwell. We took out the wrought iron and haven’t found a replacement, yet. Any suggestions?
