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.

From Time To Time

My most recent kit is called From Time To Time because, although it´s an art nouveau influenced kit and therefore suitable for vintage layouts, it also reflects the passing of time by including modern frames and elements along with the more traditional swirls and flourishes. Also, as the name suggests, there are many timepieces in a variety of styles including some unusual steampunk clocks. The colour scheme is mainly various shades of brown and sepia with copper and teal accents which makes it ideally suited for use in combination with Vintage Whimsy and/or Nostalgic Scrapbook which you will also find in the store. As is the case with all my kits, there are no recoloured duplicates included.
If you´d like to have the freebie QP which I created using From Time To Time, you´ll find it HERE.


  1. This is really beautiful Helen. I love all the timepieces and metal elements and especially the paper colors. Lovely as always. Your kits never disappoint. They're timeless (no pun intended) and classy.

  2. Loving the new kit and it has been so fun to add something new to the store. I see some hearts floating down in the preview which reminds me...HAPPY VALENTINES!

  3. You know the bird caught my eye! But everything looks so handsome and the QP is delightful. So happy to see a new kit.

  4. Beautiful kit! You extract the most beautiful jewelry for elements.
