Allen wrenching

It’s funny about things, how we dust and rearrange, curating our small museums of things we hold dear. Most of these items have shown up in this album many times before, but now they’ve moved to a shelf where the Christmas tree used to be.

I’d been meaning to get a thing to house a record player for some time, but nothing jumped out at me (or it was prohibitively expensive). So instead of waiting any longer, I went to IKEA. This will do just fine, for now and maybe for a long time.

And yes, after taking this photo I now am aware the assembly instructions are under there.
