Amy was the winner of our January contest to win a Love The House You’re In Collage — and that’s her classique mid-century modest home, above — as immortalized by collage artist extraordinaire Mel Kolstad. To win our April contest, all you have to do is:

Leave a Comment answering the question, “What project is at the top of your to-do list month?” If you want to leave a tidbit on its style, that would be cool, too. Please read all the rules here before entering, they all apply.

This month’s contest rewards regular readers — I’ll pick a winner late Monday night. Yay on all of you who check in daily!

Mel explains this collage:

“I LOVE Amy’s house!  The minute I set eyes on it I got all nostalgic – this little beaut reminds me of the neighborhood in Green Bay, WI where I grew up.  I loved the challenge on working with REALLY tiny “bricks” and making the “wrought iron” railing, and the fact that Amy wanted her family in the photo because they’re so supportive of her.  That’s what it’s all about.”

Thanks, Mel! Read more about her work on her cool blog, Ephemeraology.

P.S.: Not to tantalize, but Jenni and I are putting the finishing touches on Mom’s bathroom today (Friday). Big reveal to come this weekend. If we survive. 🙂

    Hi. Pam
    My project and question is:
    I’m in the middle of painting the kitchen of my 50’s bungalow in Vancouver BC.
    I had painted it a teally blue but it seemed too much so after some research I’m now painting large diamonds (one foot by six inches) in peptobismal pink, kermit green, butter yellow, and mauve. on the largest wall and over the cabinets, My friends think I’ve gone Easter crazy or something, but this sounds fifties doesn’t it???
    I would love your thoughts
