Shabby Chic Decor and Vintage-Style Collage


Hi Everyone~
I love to make collages from old book covers. No, it is
not my original idea--I received a beautiful one from my
awesome friend Dore at Burlap Luxe several months
ago...And then, I decided to make some. This one
was for my friend Cyndi in Brazil.

This collage was created with graphics from The



Sending hugs to all of you--and to those who are on
the East Coast, I sure hope that you are all alright...
My thoughts and prayers are with you.

XO
Cindy
