Learn How to Make an Outdoor Brick Bench #TigerStrypesBlog 16

Learn How to Make an Outdoor Brick Bench #TigerStrypesBlog You can call them bricks, or blocks…whatever you want.  I have seen things like this in home improvement store catalogs, and always wanted to make some for my yard.  Well, with Spring almost upon us here in the mountains of AZ, I thought “what better of a time?” The bricks are very inexpensive, but the wood […]

Things That Bring Back Memories – Melrose Place #MondayMemories 16

For this week’s “Things That Bring Back Memories” post, I am going to pick something in the topic of “TELEVISION” and go with Melrose Place.  This was a show that was a spin-off from the Beverly Hills 90210 show back in the 90’s.  It was a bit more grown up and had a lot of evening soap opera drama.  It also had great stories of friends, […]

Make a Road Trip Activity Case #TigerStrypesBlog If you have a child, like I do, you know of the times when you just have to even travel around town and get the classic “are we there yet?” question.  Well, for us living in the mountains, most of our road trips take a lot longer, and I even find myself asking that question once in awhile.  […]

Sweet Rainbow Treats for St. Patrick’s Day or Easter #TigerStrypesBlog I haven’t posted a craft in some time…probably because I haven’t had much time.  How about you?  I saw something like this on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make something like it that could be used for both St. Patrick’s Day and/or Easter.  They seem to be a bit close to each other […]
