CD Sunday - 'Past Times' - chosen by Jane

Firstly I would like to thank all those who entered my 'Anything Goes' challenge.  I will be choosing my Top 3 during the next couple of weeks.

Secondly we have a new challenge starting today. Jane has chosen 'Past Times' which I think offers almost (but not quite) as much scope as 'Anything Goes'.  There are lots of eras and many representatives of those eras that can be chosen.
I chose a ladies wear shop.   I am not positive as to the era - possibly Edwardian.   I am not sure but here it is:

I have done decoupage.  I haven't done a lot of decoupage this year and I do like to do some when the opportunity arises.   Now the image is of course La Pashe.  It couldn't be anything else - could it.      From 'The Big One'  CD .  A sentiment die and a bow die were used.  It is just a simple decoupaged scene which I think is quite pretty and evocative of an era that I didn't know but doesn't seem that long in the past.
Please leave a comment when you visit. Tis always nice to know that somebody came visiting.
I will see you on your blogs.


  1. love the image and decoupage Carol, don't fancy having to wear the corset though a beautiful card.

  2. Such a beautiful card Carol, I love the image you've used.
    It was great to see you yesterday and to catch up too.

  3. A lovely card Carol - a reminder of times gone by (or should that be times past?). The 2 die cuts are just enough to finish it off without hiding the background.

  4. Gorgeous card, love the image, a great reminder of how shopping was in past times.

  5. Oh beautiful! This makes me think of my husband's family history - we found out quite recently that at the very beginning of the 20th century his mother worked in a hat shop and she must have sold hats very much like these

  6. Looking at those bloomers in the background I think you might be right about the era. Such a great card. Some of the clothes from bygone times are so much more elegant than fashion now.
