My name is Didi. I love art and crafting. I am especially fond of the fashions and styles from 1920-1950. This past Christmas I opened the RetroChristmas store on Etsy. I found that I am very fond of retro Christmas and all the decorations that go with it. I  also found it limiting.
In this blog I will share my thoughts, ideas, crafty-ness, as well as the fabulous retro things I find around the web, and of course stories from my retro adventures. 

Don't forget to stop in often as I will update frequently.
