Oktoberfest Zinzinnati

September 26, 2013

Last Friday night Andrew and I braved the storms and headed down to Cincinnati for Oktoberfest. It’s the largest Oktoberfest celebration in the nation, apparently. The food vendors’ booths were designed to look like cute German villages. There was singing, schnitzel, and strudel. Oh, and beer. Lots, and lots of beer.

Despite the rain, we had a pretty good time walking around downtown and stuffing our faces with German cuisine. Hopefully next time we’ll be able to get to the celebration earlier and on a dryer day so we can do more. I would have loved to have seen the Running of the Wieners. :)

Harry Potter Golden Snitch Ring from House on Hudson

I love the simplicity of this golden snitch ring from House on Hudson. At first glance it doesn’t look too much like a snitch, but then you notice the shape and texture of the band and it all comes together. So pretty.

Star Constellation Hair Bow from Little Honeypies

Outer Space and bows are basically two of the best things in existence, so when I saw this constellation hair bow from Honeypie, of course I had to share it! There are a few other really fun bows in the shop as well as some gorgeous floral crowns and headbands.

More Updates, Yay!

September 16, 2013

Today’s post is super boring and not something I would normally devote an entire post to, but I had nothing else planned, so here ya go.

I made a few little updates around here:

  • cleaned up my portfolio page and made changes to reflect the prints in my shop
  • took down the “free printables” that I’m now trying to sell (sorry if that’s a bummer, it just seems like good business… please don’t be mad at me!)
  • I started using my tumblr again so there’s a link to that in my sidebar now
  • I created a page for my “Bits of Home” segments
  • I switched my commenting platform over to Disqus. People keep asking me questions, but not leaving any way for me to respond to their comments, so hopefully this will help with that.

So, yeah, that’s it. Don’t die from excitement, now.

My fellow 90’s kids should appreciate this Saved by the Bell artwork from Dave Perillo.

 

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

The wonderful universe of Harry Potter will be expanded in a new series of movies based off the book Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them. Anytime I find out a fandom (especially one as beloved as Harry Potter) is getting redone or added to I feel a little weary, but the fact that J.K. Rowling will be writing this movie and that it will have nothing to do with Harry and the events of the previous books has me feeling very hopefully and very excited.

Darth Maul Hand Painted Heels by Beauty for the Geek

These hand painted Darth Maul heels from Beauty for the Geek are just subtle enough to not be over the top geeky, but will definitely still make a huge statement when worn with a simple black dress or cigarette pants.

Bits of Home: Star Wars Puzzle Art

September 09, 2013

Bits of Home: Star Wars Puzzle Art | allonsykimberly.com

I found these Star Wars puzzles at the Dollar Store a while back and couldn’t pass them up. I mean, how could I say no to puzzles of my favorite characters that glow in the dark? Or at least they’re suppose to… I have yet to see them glow, but for $1 I can’t really complain. Anyway, I thought they would make nice artwork for our living room.

Bits of Home: Star Wars Puzzle Art | allonsykimberly.com

After putting the puzzles together I covered them with Mod Podge (don’t worry, it dries clear).

I made sure to fill in all the creases between the puzzle pieces.

Then waited for it to dry.

I also put a thin layer of Mod Podge on the back of the puzzle for some extra hold.

After framing the puzzles, I did the whole paper template thing to figure out where to put the nails in the wall.

Bits of Home: Star Wars Puzzle Art | allonsykimberly.com

Then I hung ‘em up!

Bits of Home: Star Wars Puzzle Art | allonsykimberly.com

I already had this frame and matting on hand, but the glass was broken. Since the puzzles are pretty sturdy on their own I felt okay with not having glass in the frames.

Bits of Home: Star Wars Puzzle Art | allonsykimberly.com

I bought the second frame from Target. It was the closest I could find to the size of the frame I already had (only an inch wider) but it didn’t come with any matting. Luckily I had some poster board on hand that I cut up to match the dimensions of the matting from my other frame.

I love, love, love how they turned out! They might just be my favorite decorations in our place. Who knew you could find such awesome artwork at the Dollar Store?

 

Have you ever discovered great art or decorations in an unexpected place?
