Family Record Player

After our garage sale last week we have been reorganizing the house and also cleaning out the house. This has been so refreshing, especially having the fall season upon us. 
While we were at the GoodWill dropping off some of our things, we had to go inside to use the
 restroom, guess what we came out with?

I really don't know why but I have been wanting a record player for awhile now. This little piece melted my heart, as well as the price, $24.99 We got home and set it up and tried out one of the records that we had bought for a dollar. I found some lovely opera pieces and some old classic movie soundtracks. Low and behold it needs a little tweaking but it sure plays :) 
Zane loves it when we put it on, he dances and sings along with it. It reminded me of a toy I had gotten for him awhile back.
I brought down Zane's little Fisher-Price record player that I had bought at a garage sale at the beginning of this summer. I was so excited when I found it because I used to play with this toy when I was little. It had all its records and was in good condition. I got it for a dollar :)
I had put it away so he could enjoy it once he was a little older, which I am glad I did because he is loving it like a new toy :) The sweet tunes that come of it are so dear. Makes me smile when I hear it playing. 
I hope everyone is doing well! We have had a fun and busy week.
 Decided to sell our bedroom furniture and got it sold and just bought a new dresser and started painting the bedroom YEAH!!
I will post the before and after soon!!
Have a lovely weekend everyone

Marie I am in love with your record player. Zane's too! I love the pictures and cannot wait to see your new bedroom look!

I love the record player, it reminds me of when I was growing up. That is what people had in their houses in those days instead of wall units. My friend Judy had one a lot like this one, but hers had room for a t.v. in the cabinet. I love Zane's little record player too. love the pictures of him peeking in your cabinet and then the one of him playing with his, while yours is in the background. Also, the two record players on the second to bottom, is very artistic. Had a nice day. Am sitting here blogging and watching "With Six You Get Eggroll".... Doris Day. Makes me feel cozy. Wish you were here.
Love you and miss you so much,

Your new record player is so gorgeous!

I always end up doing the same thing - I go to the charity shop with bags of stuff to hand in and then come out having bought something else!

I love Zane's little record player too. I'm sure we had one of them when we were little too.

How sweet that you both have your own record players! I love the pictures of Zane, he is so adorable!

What a gorgeous piece of furniture. That is so lovely. And as for the wee guy....well, I don't need to tell you that he's kinda lovely too!
Love, Anne x

how cool!! awhile ago my sister gave me her old record player, it's just an 80's version, so it's not as pretty, but I slowly amassed a collection of Barbara Streisand albums, and then mom gave me a bunch of hers and I have a few from when we were little, I love the way it sounds - it's much more romantic, ya know? :)

Marie said...

Love you all so much.

Yes I agree, records have such a romantic sound to them :) So neat you have had yours and have been enjoying it!

Anne, Thanks so much for all the lovely doting on Zane I just eat it up.
