“Um, Hasbro. May I have a word with you?”

Monday, 30 April 2018

It appears that Hasbro has repackaged Milton Bradley‘s classic “The Game of Life” (which it owns) with a more accurate title. Good thing there’s a warning that the “poop” contains wheat.

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.

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.

Elderly Man Is Happy With Graffiti On His Door.

Thursday, 1 December 2016

door-1

A company in Amsterdam [True Doors] came up with a clever idea: a way for seniors in retirement facilities to personalize their own otherwise bland entrances.

door-2

This works on several levels: The resident can have some fun, it’s easier for those with failing eyesight to find their apartments, and relatives don’t have to follow the room numbers to visit their elders.

door-3

The stock designs start at €9o + €24 shipping, which equates to about $124 USD, but if you spread the cost out over several years it’s inexpensive.

Papa Strutts would have chosen a custom design that looked something like this:
