for the record, we love music. one of our favorite vintage finds, and subsequent things to do, is listening to vinyl records on our old school record player. there is something about the sound that comes from those speakers that is simply mesmerizing, and for that matter, there is rarely a time we don’t have music playing in our house.
we spend hours in record stores sifting through old and new titles, growing our record collection one carefully discovered album at a time. here’s a peek at our music (and game) room and our refinished record player.

the most wonderful time of the year is wonderful for so many reasons. not the least of which are the ornaments, evergreens, gingerbread houses, and everything else that makes the house feel festive and full of love.
growing up my mom used to wrap our bannister in garland and lights, this year i couldn’t wait to wrap our first bannister in green garland too.

we had searched far and wide (well, within a 100 mile craigslist radius) for the perfect piano to complete our music/ game room. let me just say one thing about craigslist, pictures are deceiving.
for christmas i finally found just the fixer-upper we had been envisioning and they even offered to deliver. sold.
nothing a lot of scrubbing and a coat of our favorite grey paint (or two) couldn’t fix.
