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

    Happiness is finding something you forgot you had and setting it out to see again! I have rotating “exhibitions” of my stuff, and I forget what I have sometime.
    Your collage is great! I hope I win! 🙂

    Cute collage! Both a poodle and a pink bathroom live in our mid-century raised ranch. Your blog and Facebook page inspire me to keep our retro house real. I now regret replacing the “Zsa Zsa Gabor” chandelier in the bedroom with a ceiling fan when we moved in 12 years ago. Live and learn.

    Did I mention my poodle loves to take baths? 🙂

    Have a good weekend, everyone!

    Happiness is a husband that buys you a 1955 house with only one bathroom that is…yep, pink and green!….. and lets you keep it only because it makes you smile every time you enter it!!

    Happiness is:

    1. Owning my first ‘retro’ home
    2. Cooking in my retro kitchen
    3. Washing my retro dishes
    4. Shopping for more retro decor for my retro home
    5. Hearing “We had THAT growing up!” when people visit my retro home.

    It’s all in the numbers, and today is Friday the 13th. Not so unlucky for someone here!

    How fun! I *almost* posted the lyrics to “My Happiness” by Connie Francis. But decided on a list of ‘happiness is” instead.

    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.
