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.

Dog Days In Domburg

The reason I always spend my summer holiday in Domburg is because not only is it just a 3-hour drive from here but also because I can take Dora with me. I´ve always had a dog and every one of them has accompanied me there and probably enjoyed the beach even more than I do myself though I have to say that of all the boxers I´ve had Dora is the only one who enjoys swimming. Like the others though she also loves chasing her ball along the shore, hiding it in the dunes, rearranging the sand and apparently trying to dig to Australia just to see if Bondi Beach might be a fun place too.

I created this page using only the seashell freebie plus photos of Dora doing what Dora loves to do during her dog days in Domburg.


  1. What an adorable page! You are so clever and creative and Dora is quite a beauty.

  2. Oh! I love this page! Great idea to use the seashell as a frame for multiple photos! Love all the photos of Dora having fun at the beach! Great page Helen!

  3. Charming glimpses into the receding images of Dora's days. I'm amazed how just the shells could be used so effectively.

  4. OMG...this is awesome. Definitely will have to scrap lift this page once Jennifer get more pictures posted. How clever you are using this as a frame and love all of Dora's beach photos!
