Etsy Tuesday: Prints

Hey everyone! Today’s Etsy Tuesday is inspired by the prints I bought from CaptainLaserBeam last week! I purchased two of her cult classics art nouveau prints, and can’t wait to receive them! I’m going to frame them next to each other and put them up…somewhere. Not sure yet. It depends on where I decide to […]
