A fun little mushroom / toadstool shaped house. I used pink for the houses as a nod to John Mellenkamp's song "Little Pink Houses".
After seeing the devastation caused by the tornadoes in Oklahoma (the loss of life, of course, being the most heart-breaking)....it got me thinking about our homes and neighborhoods. I think people tend to take these two things for granted. You just get busy with life and don't think about it much. After seeing people lose everything, it really made me appreciate my little home, neighborhood, and all my loved ones and friends in them. This is what inspired this design I guess. To everyone out there, enjoy your homes and neighborhoods...and all the precious people in them!
There is a little family ~ mom, dad, little boy and little girl ~ in the lower window of the house and in the upper window, a dog and cat. The plaque over the front door says "Home Sweet Home". All the roads lead to home.

Love this design Amy! The houses are so wonderful!
Thank you so much, Pat, Moira, Jasmin and Rhonda....gosh, you guys know how to make a girl's whole day!!!! :o)
Amy G...you are a true artist girl. I LOVE your work!!!
Lovely - reminds me of my childhood, I think it the colours and the illustrative treatment, like the books we used to have. Makes me smile - always good!
I'm running late with comments again... Wonderful design, love how the periphery houses are also showing the way home and also taking a kind of shelter from the centre point house. I especially love art that comes from the heart. Good luck this week, Amy. :)
This is such a sweet design, Amy! I was happy to see that you entered it into the contest!
Thank you so much, arttreedesigns, your kind words mean so much to me!
Oh my word...tears in my eyes. Love the bright vivid colors and your creative illustrations as always. Reading this description added even more to the sweetness of your design. There's no place like home!
Thank you so much, Tina....you just made my whole night, sweet girl!!!
What a great story and a perfect little home! Love it as always!

Yes and amen. How we can take our blessings for granted.Thanks for the poignant reminder in words and humor in your design.Your sensitivity and heart are always right on,Amy. Kim@krussimages
Thank you, Janiece! I'm so glad u like it!
This printed perfect. Still loving it.
Thank you so much, dinorahdesign and winterblossom, your kind comments mean so much to me! Winterblossom, thank you for showing me a different perspective on this design, I had not even thought of that. :o)
Wonderful Amy! I love the design and its meaning : )
Love the movement of the houses with the swaying red Japanese roofs which depict vulnerability. And the stable couple in the centre which to me depicts the strength of a love relationship in a crisis. Love the little cars. Very thoughtful impressive design. Every newly wed couple should have this on their walls to remind them to stay strong as a couple in the crisis's of life!
Thank you so much, katiame!!! You're a sweetheart! :o)
Thank you so much, bluevelvet, Janeice and Rhonda...I will have to check out John Mellenkamp's artwork. I didn't even know he painted....talented guy that wears many hats!
I love it Amy, you are so creative and artistic
BTW if anyone want to see Mellenkamp's paintings, google has a few up. And my friend Ferd has some photos here. http://www.ferdworks.com/ Amy your fun cartoons are so full of joy. I know this one is in response to a tragedy but the message and the image are quite joyful.
I grew up in a little pink house so the John Cougar song really connected with me. Later in life I met the base player that played with him through his first 4 albums and we became best friends. He is the guy who throws me photos to use in my art that I've talked about here. Him and John Cougar are also great visual artist.
Your quaint pink houses make a charming design! I can also see the shoe shape in the roof pattern. Thank you for sharing the background story about your inspiration for the design, Amy!
Thank you Deborah....You're right, the roof does look a bit like a shoe!

Sweet design, Amy. The roofs of the houses also remind me of shoes. . . The Little Old Woman Who Lived in the Shoe. Clever.
