What Goes Around Comes Around




The Beatle's Greatest Hits...They'll always be around...But who would have thought records would make a come back? I will refer to them from here on as "vinyl" because that's the new twist. Vintage Vinyl--I love it!


This is what Bonnie got for Christmas. I want to say "It's not your mother's record player", but uhg-I'm the mother!! This is a USB turn table, so she can put our old (excuse me)--our vintage vinyl and her newly aquired vintage vinyl on her MP3 player. How cool is that?? She even just bought a new vinyl album because some groups are releasing their new albums in vinyl again.


Why? In this age of digital? Why go back to the potential scratching, taking care to place the needle just so, needing more space again for storage?? For the experience, for the fullness in the sound, and just because. We spent some time in her room Christmas morning with her playing for me some of her favorites.


This rack of vintage 45s is on a shelf in our basement. I've been collecting records for a long time; for display, and for some day; crafting. There are a lot of ideas out there that use the old ones in projects. I don't think many people ever thought anyone would play them again other than for a trip down memory lane.



I found this one on Etsy. You can buy it here.

I really like these--coasters--they can be found here. This might be my project with some of my old records- uuhhm vinyl, someday.

  2. That is so cool! I want a USB turn table I love my vinyl...and can't seem to let go of it. I would so love to be able to make digital files from them...maybe...maybe then I could consider making coasters from them?!
