A house without books is like room without windows -- featuring Bo Bunny :)

Hi everyone! 

Today I am sharing my take on our latest challenge at LESSology :)  

Window display
Create a project that has a window!!! 


Ok -- I am not gonna lie -- I couldn't think of a way to make a window :)  So instead, I used a quote about a window *wink* 

I went to a yard/garage sale a few weeks ago, and I found some antique books - well in the mix of me buying the books, I ended up with an extra cover --




So I decided to take the book cover and turn it into a wall hanging :) 


I found this quote - “A house without books is like room without windows” and wanted to use this for my wall hanging - as in my house, Brookie and I are AVID readers. Like a book a day avid readers :) 



I used Bo Bunny's "The Avenue" collection on my wall hanging and one of the embellishments the collection comes with a door/window that I used as my background and then added the quote :) 






Can't wait to see what you create for this challenge!! :)

  3. OMWord, seriously...this is genius, Julie! SUCH a great quote and a brilliant idea for a wall hanging. I LOVE that you used an old beat-up book cover for this, and LOVE the window embellie behind the lettering. You totally nailed this window challenge, my friend!

    I hate to say this... but I'm not a good reader. I learned how to "read" in 6th grade! And oh how that hindered me! It takes me a long time to read and understand. Wish I could read faster:)
