New Blog Challenge: Retro Gals!
Our Lunagirl Moonbeams blog challenge #15 is RETRO GALS!

Have fun with images of retro women and girls, 1950s housewives, vintage cooks, retro moms, even pin up girls -- all ladies of the 30s, 40s, 50s, even 60s and 70s.  Somehow this fits with Thanksgiving for me -- domestic goddesses and kitchen divas!

You'll find some here, along with other retro style ephemera:

Don't miss the samples from the Moonbeams Design Team, for your inspiration!

This challenge (#15) will end at Noon (Central Time) on December 1 (can't believe it's almost December!).

The winner will be selected randomly to win a $10 discount coupon for!

Don your sweater set and pearls and get cookin'! 
Any craft or medium is OK,
No more than 3 entries from one person in each challenge, 
Vintage style is encouraged but not required, and
Please link to my blog and on your site if you have one.

Of course I love if you use at least one Lunagirl product, and I hope you'll go take a look at my collection... but that's not a requirement!  Most important is have fun, get creative, enjoy vintage. 

Find out more about the Moonbeams DT and visit their blogs! And here are some of their "Retro Gals"!

Mandy Chilvers starts us off right with two ATCs she has created with flirty pin up girls!  Oh my, what would the housewife in the sweater set and pearls say about this?  You never know!  We all have our sassy side, don't we?

And here is a rather nervous (excited?) looking pie baker by Michele Storms!

We're off to a good start with our Retro Gals!

From Petra Berendsen, I love these three cards below! Humor is essential this busy time of year!
Petra writes:  "For the current challenge I created three mini cards with images from the Retro Housewives collage sheet. I kept it very easy adding some background from an old calendar and a housewife quote I found on the web to each one of them."

Here is another Retro card from Vicki Romaine!
"The Lunagirl image is placed on a retro-looking piece of designer paper.  The cards from the past were fairly plain and simple.  However, I used a bow to accent my card"


  1. ooooh this is right up my street - love the DT inspiration and the way you've dressed the blog in a twin set! I already have some of your Retro Gals, but I'm off to check I ahven't missed any! Buzzing with ideas now! Thanks Karen! :o)
