mid-century-house-collageUPDATE: Comments closed; time to pick a winner! Mary Ellen, a regular reader and commenter, was the winner of last month’s Love the House You’re In collage. That’s her house, above, as interpreted by Mel Bushner, our collage artist laureate. You must admit, Mel’s collages just keep getting better and better! Click on through to learn how Mel created this wonderful little study of mid century modest luv… and for instructions on how to win this month’s contest for a custom collage of your very own — it’s easy.

Here’s what Mel writes about this month’s collage:

After I had studied Mary Ellen’s house for a while, I knew what I wanted to do – embroidery!  I used to do petit point about a million years ago, and I still have all my flosses and threads and needles. That flower box below the picture window seemed perfect for it!  The roses on the right were done with silk ribbon as well. I used a tiny metal mesh for the screen door – another new addition.  I love finding new “building materials” for these wonderful houses!
To win our November contest, all you have to do is: Leave a Comment answering the question, “What are you thankful for?” I know it’s cheesy, but it’s Thanksgiving around the corner. How could I not? Please read all the rules here before entering, they all apply. I’ll pick a reader the day after Thanksgiving.

Meanwhile — thanks to Mel for another fabulous collage. You can find Mel’s collage works on flickr and her blog, Much Ado About Stuff.

  1. I am so grateful to have palm trees and live oak trees /spanish moss in my front yard. I grew up in Ohio and have always lived in the north until recently. The winters here in Savannah, GA are amazing!

    I’m thankful for my little bitty house. With out it I would be about homeless. We have bad health but we’re still going on. It’s a little house full of love.
