Armitage Weekly Tumblr Round-up 2015/5

Welcome, mesdames et messieurs, to another instalment of the Weekly Round-up that promises to keep you warm when it’s stormy and cold outside.

RA Pocket Shrine 108/? – Frolicking in the Snow

Over on Herba’s blog Unkraut vergeht nicht a creative project has been running for basically a year now.
