Happy Birthday to Me, Part 1

My birthday's actually in two weeks, but since I got my present early, I thought I'd start sharing my wonderful, wonderful haul.

My whole family chipped in for an Etsy gift card, so I contacted Patie at minisx2 with several requests. She did an amazing job with every single piece and was wonderful to work with. I will definitely be back when I need midcentury-ish furniture again.

First, there was the matter of my half-furnished living room. I had to have a midcentury record cabinet with angled legs - and here it is, displayed on my real-life turntable to show the scale.

I'm aware of the poor quality of these photos (I was so excited I snapped them as fast as I could with no concern for the lighting), but I hope my dear readers notice Patie even painted the feet to look like brass.

The cabinet doors slide effortlessly, and there are even dividers inside! Now I just have to fill it with miniature records.

Stay tuned...there's more to come.


  1. Hello Anna! I really like your record case and the sliding doors on it are wonderful! I think that it was a well thought out birthday gift to give to you. Happy Birthday or rather Un-birthday, to you, Anna!


  2. Beautiful cabinet! I wouldn't mind one myself!
