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.

Sorry it´s taken such a long time to get around to posting the Nouveau Summer freebies. Here they are at last.

As you can see, there´s a poppy, an anemone and a hibiscus. The ladybird (Am. ladybug) was an afterthought inspired by Lajuana´s own little dancing ladybird which you can see among her CT layouts or HERE on her blog.


  1. Love the freebie, thank you! The addition of the little lady bug is a wonderful bonus!

  2. Oh, yum! These are quite delectable goodies. I'm imagining some super pages brightened with any or all of them. Thank you!

  3. Oh my what a wonderful freebie...just got them and can't wait to finish a few more pages with pictures of Avery's ballet recital. Thank you, thank you for the little lady bug...bet you will see her on these next pages!
