Best Cookbook Ever.

Tuesday, 9 January 2018

Mickler compiled these rural recipes of great artery clogging goodness. Be sure to check with your doctor first before trying them, and no, there aren’t any possum or squirrel recipes. For those you need a copy of The Foxfire Appalachian Cookbook.

Tuesday, 26 December 2017

Darrow’s “Monopoly” made him a millionaire, but it wasn’t completely original. It was an adaptation of “The Landlord’s Game” patented over three decades earlier by Elizabeth J. Magie:

 

Elizabeth Phllips (nee Magie) renewed her patent in 1924.

Another Great Gift Idea: Medium Leather Wrapped Stone

Tuesday, 13 December 2016

nordstrom-medium-leather-wrapped-stone

A paperweight? A conversation piece? A work of art? It’s up to you, but this smooth Los Angeles-area stone—wrapped in rich, vegetable-tanned American leather secured by sturdy contrast whipstitching—is sure to draw attention wherever it rests. A traditional hardening process gives the leather a beautiful ombré effect. Like all Made Solid leather pieces, this one is cut, shaped, sewn and finished by hand in artist Peter Maxwell’s Los Angeles studio. Using vintage leatherworking tools and traditional saddle-stitching techniques, Maxwell aims to create beautiful designs that embody both simplicity and functionality, and that develop rich character and patina over time.

Nice trolling, Nordstrom.

I Googled “Hair Monster Food” and got this.

Warning for Parents: this is a potentially dangerous doll.
