Tidbits, Odds, and Ends: Getting Homey and Settled in the Dorm Part III

In Part I of this mini series we asked, "What makes a dorm room a home?". We have received some more pictures from inside Vassar students' rooms to help us answer this query.

These pipes belonged to my grandfather before my grandmother made him quit smoking 50 years ago. They remind me of him, so I took them with me to school to keep a bit of him always with me.

I always keep my eye open for interior decoration opportunities on the college budget. I snagged this gorgeous set of Andy Warhol Marilyn glasses at a tag sale–what better than to drink out of a vessel of popular consumption!

I recently bought a record player, as I have wanted one for a long time. I love listening to an album of songs in the order that the artist intending, really allowing the album to tell its story. There's nothing like listening to a vinyl record on a Sunday afternoon when I'm procrastinating doing homework. I seem to also be keeping Darkside Records in business, as my record collection is quickly expanding!'
