Weekly Pixels #38, #39 & #40

Weekly Photo Project • Weekly Pixels • Little Gold Pixel

This is an update in my Weekly Pixels series, a weekly photo project for managing my family’s digital files in lieu of printed photos. At the end of the year I will create a yearbook out of my images. Here’s what the end of September and beginning of October looked like for us.

I honestly do not know what happened to the past three weeks. They just passed by in a big blur. Looking at my phone, I didn’t take that many pics. I haven’t even touched my DSLR in the past few months. That usually means I’m in a funk. Here’s hoping I’ll shake it off and finish this project with strength. Right now it feels like I’m dragging myself around the Weekly Pixels race with two bloody stumps for legs.

What we’ve been up to, according to my meager camera roll:

Spending as much time at the beach as possible to make good use out of this ridiculously warm Indian summer.

Oomph, I’m really dragging feet on posting my weekly pictures lately. I’m still a week behind! This has happened to me at the same point in the year for all of my photo projects. It’s crazy how the momentum catches up and leaves me completely drained at the midpoint. Still, I’m pushing through. I will complete the year strong.

My sister-in-law makes a mean tea.

And wow, can she cook. This Moroccan kefta was completely devoured in no time. I’m going to try to replicate this dish ASAP; this recipe is similar to my sister-in-law’s.

Frame Game: Colorful Inspiration for an Entrepreneur Mom

Colorful Inspiration for an Entrepreneur Mom • Little Gold Pixel

Frame Game is an occasional series in which I take readers’ gallery wall requests and find art that fits their personalities. Click here to see past Frame Games.

Today’s wall was inspired by Jenna, who is a kick-ass entrepreneur plus a single mom of three ranging in age from 8 months to 15 years.

She suggested a few different areas in her life she’d like to decorate, hoping I’d pick one.

Well, I’m picking all three. Because I’m pretty sure with all her responsibilities she is used to taking care of other people constantly, so I’d like to take this chance to turn the tables and take care of her.

In Jenna’s words:

“A Southern- or Texas-themed wall. Would love this for my dining room. I love color. Except purple. Aqua and orange are my favorites.

“A wall for an entrepreneur. Female. For my office.

“A whimsical wall for my bedroom. I love fairy tales, Alice in Wonderland, color color color. Especially aqua. Hot pink, orange, gold glitter. … No purple.

“Inspirational quotes and affirmations are good right now.”

Let’s go!

 

A Southern-inspired Dining Room

I tried to stay true to what Jenna wanted, I really did. But no purple? Does she even know who I am?

You know how once you try to avoid something suddenly it’s the only thing you see? Yeah, that’s what happened to me and purple. 

There was one thing I found for her that I thought was amazing (and ORANGE!) but it didn’t quite fit in with the Southern dining room as much as I wanted. So bummed! In case you’re interested, it was a vintage Texas poster.

In general, well-designed freebies with a Southern theme were difficult to find. I’m happy I finally hunted down the ones below, especially the one about minding your own “biscuits.” I could just hear my late great Aunt Betty saying something like that. She was a Texan and a charmer.

A Whimsical Bedroom

I so much wanted to bring more color into this gallery wall, but I couldn’t sacrifice the oh-so-awesome Alice in Wonderland illustrations, from the original book printing and now in open domain for downloading.

One of my favorite ways to get a huge pop of color into a room is to (a) either paint or wallpaper the walls or (b) blow up a nicely-saturated photo. This free stock photo gave me very strong “through the rabbit hole” vibes.

Inspirational Office Space

The biggest challenge I had with Jenna’s rooms was laying off the quote printables. I mean, what you’re seeing here is only a small sampling of the quote printables I downloaded for this project. I might have a problem.

I kept this color palette on the cool, turquoise side to give it that office je ne sais quoi.

Quick Tip

Sometimes, no matter how long you search for the perfect free printable (hey, it might still be out there!), there comes a time in every curator’s life when you simply must pay for good, quality art. Please do. I believe in supporting artists!

This is what I’d buy for Jenna. A very colorful and cheeky quote from “Alice in Wonderland,” starting at $18 for an 8×10 via The Wheatfield by Katie Daisy.

Frame Game: Beachy Keen Gallery Wall for a Preppy Collegian

Frame Game: Beachy Keen Gallery Wall for a Preppy Collegian • Little Gold Pixel

Frame Game is an occasional series in which I take readers’ gallery wall requests and find art that fits their personalities. Click here to see past Frame Games.

Today’s wall was inspired by Alexandra, who is decorating her dorm room.

In Alexandra’s words:

Pink, glitter, monograms, preppy, Lily Pulitzer, Kate Spade, bright colors, sunshine, beach, anything sparkly, University of Wisconsin

I tried to walk that fine line of tactful and tacky because this could so easily go the way of a plastic flamingo farm (no offense to Don Featherstone, who may be the most interesting man who ever lived).

The key word to bring this back to reality was “preppy,” so I definitely kept that in mind while whittling down options. The customizable striped monogram and Lily Pulitzer-inspired sailboat print were my inspirations.

Other favorite finds include the palm frond prints and Surf Sun & Sand print in gold and pink — just the right mix of sparkly and feminine and beachy. And, of course, no beach-loving wall would be complete without a pineapple and/or flamingo (or both?).

Green and gold secondary tones helped prep up the pink vibe of the gallery wall. If Alexandra has a way to add wallpaper or similar styling to her wall, I highly recommend something preppy, graphic and B&W, like the polka dots in the mockup.

Quick Tip

Alexandra mentioned the University of Wisconsin in her faves list, and although I love the idea of decorating with your school emblem, I couldn’t make the University of Wisconsin logo fit in with the other items on the wall.

No problem — I recommend simply framing it individually on a desk, or on a separate wall, like so:
