Simon Says: Show Me Something from Yesteryear

Mother Nature dumped 20+" of snow on New York City yesterday and today, which gave me the opportunity to do nothing but work on the latest Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge

The theme is "something from yesteryear," and I had a good old time digging through my vintage images, pulling out bits of lace and netting, and giving my sewing machine a workout.

I did a collage using fabric, papers, canvas, ribbon, buttons, a little stamping, some distressing, and came up with this:

Your collage is great. Best way to deal with 20" of snow is make snow cones.
