Our Contest Finalists And Voting Begins To Choose A Grand Prize Winner!

By RetroRuth

Wow! We got some awesome entries for our “Odds ‘N Ends” contest!  It was really, really hard to pick the three finalists, but after lots of thinking, discussing, thinking, arguing and then more thinking, we have it narrowed down to these three (which are in no particular order!):

Uncle Atom, for his excellent street address sign!


We loved the shadowboxed look of his finished sign and the craftiness in putting it all together.   Uncle Atom writes:

I had most of the materials laying around from leftover construction projects, so the only real money spent on this street address sign was for the numbers and the nuts and bolts to attach the sign to the posts.

Cute, crafty AND thrifty! And it’s from a vintage Woman’s Day!

And, Susie QT and her awesome vintage TV fish tank!


Please stand by for vintage-sweetness!  And get this, the fish inside are named Gomer Pyle and Barney Fife!

    Nice entries!

    I tried sending an email to “ruth@nopatternrequired.com” and received a bounce-back “Sorry, we were unable to deliver your message to the following address.” Is there another email address I can use?

    Or you can email me at jeannechilcote@yahoo.com and I will reply. Thanks!

      Not sure what the deal with that is, Jeanne! I sent you an email!

    Clicking the email link comes up as nopatten instead of nopattern in the email address. A simple typo 🙂
