Scout’s Honor

Happy Monday, everyone! This weekend, I watched Moonrise Kingdom for the second time (high recommendation) and felt compelled to do a gift pick inspired by the movie. For those of you who enjoy Wes Anderson’s work and haven’t seen it yet, definitely go check this film out!

Without giving away any plotlines, I can say that the kids in this movie make frequent use of a portable record player, which can also make a deliciously retro gift to someone:

This portable turntable can play 33 1/3, 45, or 78 RPM records and also comes with USB connection that works with your computer (both PC and Mac), as well as an outlet for an MP3 player. It comes in both blue and red… I think I want to get a blue one for my living room! I love the warm sound of vinyl records, and it would be a nice addition to a room meant for entertaining.

Last week, I got some friendly blog comments asking for photos/descriptions of my purchases from Paris, which I will try to update soon! Nothing totally crazy, but I did score some cute shoes and a darling little dress with a bird print on it. Will take some photos of the goods to post, though I can’t say that I can provide links to all of the items… some were purchases made at random boutiques (the best kind of purchases, in my opinion). Regardless, I appreciate the curiosity and will do my best to satisfy it soon. Thanks for reading, and have a great start to your week!
