just an old-fashioned girl

Hello and welcome. I'm glad you dropped by. If you´re looking for something a little nostalgic of bygone eras with a timeless elegance and a little modern twist – in other words, something slightly “retro” – then you should feel right at home here in my shabby chic room. Month by month, there will always be something new to see so I hope you´ll enjoy your stay and come back again soon.

Golden Evening

I was looking through my holiday photos recently when I came upon this golden North Sea scene captured a couple of years ago in Domburg, a small Dutch town on the Zeeland peninsula.

During the long sunny days of summer the beach throngs with sun bathers and joggers while children splash and shout in the shallows, but as the sun goes down and the beach is left mainly to the seagulls, it takes on a serene magical beauty.

I created this page using Jewelled Sea which you´ll find HERE along with a couple of kit freebies.


  1. wow... what a view! Your photo makes me want to take off my socks and shoes and walk on the sand! Then I want to sit by a camp fire on the beach and roast hotdogs and marshmellows! I want to listen to Bette Middler singing "Under the Boardwalk"... But there is work to be done, and only one of me... my little day dream will have to wait for another day! Thanks so much for sharing! Beautiful photo and your page is just gorgeous!

  2. WOW.....gorgeous! Excuse me while I pick my jaw up from off the ground. ;)

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog, too. Always appreciated.

  3. Ohhhhh....this is gorgeous. Love the reflection on the wet sand and the use of the photo in the background. The swirls are soaking in that golden sunset, too! Awesome LO!

  4. lovely artistic picture dude, i like your effort, keep sharing such cool stuff.
