for the record

looking for some new artwork for your home? old records are cheap & plentiful - I guarantee that there is a large selection of them at a thrift store near you right at this very minute.

I think it would be fun to do a whole wall of framed records so I've started to pick them up here & there when they strike my fancy:






I found these 3 at two different stores & just love how they work together...I need to do some research to see if there are more in the series:


I was also excited to find this one, illustrated by the brilliant Mary Blair:

Wow, they have great graphics. My husband and I still have our old album collections on the top shelf of the closet!

I love the "It's a Small World" album cover. My kids adored that ride at Disney.

I saw somewhere a little while back, someone had taken old vinyl records and melted them then reshaped them to make funky bowls. You could still use the covers for wall art. Double duty!
