Tale of Two Playdough Recipes

I'm a playdough maker from way back.  31 years to be exact.

Pink Homemade Playdough Recipe

I've used the same recipe all 31 of those years, given to me by my BFF.

Over the years I tried a couple different ones, but always came back to the one she gave me - it was the best I tried and never failed me.

Where Are They Now... At The Ranch

This throw back Thursday I decided to write a "where are they now" post..... as in how are a few things from past posts fairing today or how is a new product I've received holding up.

I'll go two years back, one year ago, and one month ago.

First up is the oldie that I can't refer to as a goodie.  It's the one project I lay awake at night thinking about and not in a good way.

So I Married A Creative ___?___.

It's a blog hop where 18 of us gave spouses the opportunity to spill their guts.

Ever wonder what the spouse behind the blogger has to say?
In my case he's the hands or feet in blog photos.

Some spouses might have clammed up when asked questions.

Vintage Mailbox Towel Holder

For throw back Thursday I'm revisiting a post about my boys bathroom.  I guess I am going to need to do an update too, because the signs have all been taken down and a blank wall awaits me to make something new.

I'm going to boldly go where no woman should go - my boys bathroom -  so I can show you the vintage mailbox I turned into a towel holder.

16 years ago.

I thought I was being so stylish and unique.

Vintage Mailbox Turned Towel Holder

I'm pretty sure everyone who saw it thought I was odd hanging an old mailbox anywhere, let alone in a bathroom.

Mayo Haters Coleslaw

I'm not a fan of mayo. 

I'm president of the I Hate Mayonnaise Club.  At least I thought I was till I Googled it and found out there is a real club for mayo haters with someone who says they are the prez, so I'm not alone.

There is like a whole underground of mayo haters out there.

Corn-hole Game #2

When I made a beanbag toss game last summer for our yard I also got a great idea.

Make some as gifts for family.

That sounds easy and doable in July, but by the time December rolled around I could tell with all the other projects we were working on that those weren't going to happen.

So instead I took the pair that my son in law uses and built years ago, and gave them a make over.

This is how they started......

New York New York Hotel Las Vegas

While I'm giving reviews of Las Vegas I thought I'd stick one in of where we stayed, in case someone wanders by looking for an opinion on it.

The New York New York hotel is on the far end of the Las Vegas strip over by the airport, but we didn't hear any air traffic. 

These theme resorts are huge and take up a lot of property.

800 Degrees Pizza

I'm no food critic, I just like what I like.

And I like pizza.  A lot.

Pizza is the kind of food that even when it's bad, it's still pretty good.

Basically I've never had a pizza I didn't find palatable.

Fiona at Just Paint It White


Isn't that a pretty name?

No I don't have a bun in the oven and I'm not naming a new pet.  Although the name would be fitting for either.
