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.

Off On Monday

Well, I´ve just about finished packing. At least with the baggage restrictions I won´t have to even consider taking the kitchen sink with me this time. With the 20 kilo allowance it´s difficult enough already to decide what´s essential and what I can reluctantly leave behind.

I´m really looking forward to being in Scotland again for a few weeks and visiting all my old haunts in Glasgow, or at least those that still remain. I know the art school is still standing and our beautiful Kelvingrove Park with its Victorian museum and art galleries hasn´t changed much. Neither has Sauchiehall Street, my favourite shopping centre. With all the places I have to revisit I´ll need to have my shoes resoled when I get back.

And that reminds me that I have something else to look forward to shortly after my return which will take the edge off my homesickness.

Here´s a clue.

I won´t have to take much with me for THAT. Just my camera and maybe a pair of ripped fishnet stockings...for my husband.

See you soon.


  1. I hope you have a wonderful time in Scotland, we will miss you! I hope you will share some photos of the haunts you revisit while in Glasgow. How exciting that you have another RH performance to look forward to!

  2. Hope your shoes hold up! Have a great time and bring us back lots of pictures.

  3. Hope you are enjoying your time in your old stomping ground...can't wait to see some pictures.

    My web site is getting in pretty good shape. Hope to scrap some more before you return. Allie Rae's 92nd birthday is October 9th. Would love to scrap all of her family photos for her...but maybe it will have to be a Christmas project.
