Records and Needles
Johnny snagged this turntable at a yard sale for $5 recently. We had a pretty sweet setup in our last house, but since we've been in Springfield, the little Crosley combo record player is all we've been using. The thing is cute, but it plays all everything just a little too fast... which can be pretty bothersome when you're familiar with an album. Anyway, after purchasing a couple of needles for our last turntable and having trouble with that, it was great to just start fresh with this guy.
Last weekend I broke out the can of "Watermelon" spray paint, dug out our old record table from the basement, and got to work sprucing it up for our little music nook. Here was the table before:

It's nice to have music going in the house all the time again. I've really missed that. Impromptu dance parties are one of our very favorite things! xo.
