Today I’m starting a new series on the blog! Each week I find myself wanting share interesting articles, art projects, new products and more. So… I thought I’d round them up and present them to you! In each Retro-Modern Roundup, you will find art, design and entertainment news, as well as links to shops that sell retro-style items (such as clothing and jewelry). Not to mention, I’ll share fun DIY projects in case you’re feeling crafty. Check out the links below at your leisure…
