A little Oktoberfest etiquette: Despite it’s name, Oktoberfest  2016 runs from Saturday September 17 – Monday October 3. The event began in the early 1800’s as a celebration to honor Bavaria and it’s royal family. Booths selling beer eventually were added, and by 1896 they had morphed into the new iconic beer tents.

In Germany a stein is called a Krug. Everyone at the table drinks together, and all glasses are “clinked” before drinking. Not making eye contact during this exchange is considered rude.

The word for cheers is “Prost”.

A few days left. Enjoy!

It’s Five O’Clock SomeWhere

Hey readers, Happy Friday! At our house on Friday we have pool table night. We make some great drinks and starters and put on some good music. Then we shoot a few games of pool. And for a special treat we each have a cigar. We love our game room. The rest of the house I am kind of a minimalist. I don’t really like to dust. So I keep things pretty simple. But in the game room, Anything Goes! I am a Junk Gypsy. Always reclaiming and using found objects.(And Junk is the New Black!) On our last trip to Kentucy I picked up a really cool clock. Kinda worn and rustic and the people that were selling it didn’t know if it was working. But I bought it anyway. Not knowing at the time what I was going to do with it. Packed it away for a while. I don’t know exactly when the idea popped into my head. Maybe when I was on my morning walk. Or maybe when I was in the shower. I think it had something to do with the song by Alan Jackson. But my Five O’Clock Somewhere Prop Clock was born. I love it. It is hanging among all of our other game room wall items. And when we have guests over, it really gets noticed. I have made several more since then. And have started including cigar logos on them now. Each one is a recycled,upcycled,reclaimed,reused,hand altered piece of really cool wall art. I don’t think we have had a get together here that someone hasn’t noticed it. It really stands out. Great addition to a game room, den, office. Looks great over a bar. or even in the kitchen. Where ever you like to relax, enjoy a drink or two and maybe even your best cigar.It also is the perfect addition to that Man Cave. I am including a few photos of the one on our wall that we have in our game room. I will also post a link to my shop so you can see the others I have available. And check back to my shop every so often. There is always new ones coming in. Enjoy the photos. And remember what Alan Jackson says: It’s only half past twelve, But I don’t care. It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere”

See you at my shop!
