I built a Kocktail Kahuna in a box. When I let him out he makes me cocktails It is actually the Perfect Drink app, check out the link if you are interested and I won't have to explain it again



I never claimed to be a painter. He turned out pretty much like I envisioned except for his feet (edit- I worked on the feet a little and updated the pic above). I apologize for the "Tiki devolution" colors, but I needed something to stand out against the multi-shade brown torched wood.

The Tiki Snake Hut has 2 new inhabitants



TU and his wife drove out from Las Vegas to pick up the Snake Hut. We had dinner & a few drinks and had a great evening

Thanks Lori, yes I did a few that years back (could be a lot of scrolling ) The grey tiles are commercial tiles that I cut to fit and there is a small fire pit in the center of the table

Great photos. It's fun to see TU and his wife too. The hut is on it's way to Las Vegas? I wish I was. Cheers, Wendy

For many years we have enjoyed these pieces of art work by MadDogMike. Dan is downsizing his collection and decided that these two pieces should be in the home of our dear friends Whylee Raven and Eva.

We met them for lunch and surprised them with this mug.


Here it is displayed in their home.


Today we met them again and did the same thing.


Here it is displayed in their home.


It's really fun that these mugs are passed on and going to be enjoyed again for many years. We can also visit them.
We are hanging onto our MadDogMike monkey, airplane, gun and kiln stopper. Have I missed any other pieces? If I have we
are keeping them.

Lots of love Mike for making so many people happy. You are a special friend, Wendy

You have more of my pieces than I do. But then again, I don't keep anything

So glad they found good homes, thank you my friend.

I could see that they had the same excitement over the pieces that we felt when they became ours. I look forward to the day you visit us and we'll take you two to visit them as well. Hugs, Wendy

I cross posted this in Home Tiki Bars (don't tell the moderators )

I did some experimentation with making my own lava landscaping blocks. There were a couple of things I didn't like about the ones at Lowe's/Home Depot; boring texture (I wanted lava) and boring color (I wanted black). So I made a mold from some metal and wood and cast a few. The mold worked fine but they weren't exactly what I was looking for; I added black concrete dye but they weren't anywhere near lava black. They were also pretty time consuming to make. So now I have a new plan. I'm ordering some black concrete acid stain and will see if the commercial blocks and my blocks can be stained black. Then I can use about half commercial blocks and half custom textured blocks. I'm got some lava textured rock stamps to experiment with and plan to incorporate some glazed ceramic "oozing hot lava" and some real lava rocks and/or obsidian into the concrete. Will keep you posted on outcome

Quick fun craft for the day, suitable to do with the kids or grand kids - Kraken tentacle drink garnishes, suitable for any drink containing Kraken Rum. These are made of Sculpty polymer clay, it is listed as non-toxic but I wouldn't use them daily.


Materials needed. 1 pack of polymer clay for each tentacle (I used black), 1 pack polymer clay for suckers (I used pink), a chopstick or bamboo skewer, a cookie sheet, an oven.

Take one package of black clay, knead it a bit to make it soft and roll it into a tapered tentacle. Poke parts of holes in the tentacle with the skewer or chopstick. Knead the pink clay and roll little balls of various sizes, sort the balls by size.


Roll the ends of the pink balls to a point


Starting with the bigger balls in the fat end of the tentacle, stick the point of the pink balls into the hole in the tentacle and flatten them into a disc. Use the chopstick or skewer to make a hole in the sucker.


Continue to fill all the holes in the tentacle with suckers. Place the completed tentacles on a cookie sheet and shape as desired. The top one stands straight up and holds an umbrella. The bottom one loops over the edge of the mug and gets a maraschino cherry or other fruit skewered on it. You could make one that sticks up with a loop to hold a straw or whatever.


Bake at 275 degrees for 30 minutes, allow to cool. Enjoy!
