Guess what? I'm a Neo-traditionalist. Yup, that's right. I love combining traditional elements with modern ones. I like new prints on classically designed dresses. I like throwing dinner parties with a little semi-homemade flair. I love rummage shopping, letterpress, hand-written thank-you notes, piggy banks in fun designs, Elizabeth Bennet and Sookie Stackhouse, traveling somewhere historical, baskets of flowers and chihuahuas with long red hair. Better yet, there is a group of people out there just like me.
And, they have a magazine that comes out TODAY! Matchbook Magazine.
