Saturday Snippets -Junkin' Battery Operated Cookie Press, Pool Noodle Cushions and Sunny Days

I was so glad we stopped by the thrift store this morning! This Hamilton Beach Super Shooter Battery Operated Cookie Press has been on my wish list for a long time. While my fingers were crossed it would still work with the batteries (and yep, it does:@) I figured I could always push the dough out manually if need be. One of the things I really like about this press is, the cookies are a little bigger than standard spritz, the discs are 2 1/4" across.

 Another reason I wanted this set...
I ~love~ that little car disc!
Big plans for that later this year... Stay tuned:@)

I have a metal yard swing under my carport and it's my favorite shady seat during nice weather. I purposely keep it as simple and understated as possible, easy to hose off and the only upkeep is to paint it every five years or so. (As well as the cinder blocks behind it I'm scraping now...) I've been kicking around the idea of cutting a Dollar Tree Foam Pool Noodle to size, adding a slit long ways and sliding it over the arm and head rests. Such a small change but it really feels nice! Gonna keep my eyes open for white noodles...

Now, I'm not saying this is going to be featured in Better Homes and Gardens, but then, 
that's not what Pig In Mud is about... 
We're all about a cheap, easy 5 minute project and a comfortable seat!

It's a gorgeous weekend here in Philly!
Nasturtiums begging to be added to a beautiful salad...
Gonna fire up the grill and futz around the yard:@)

I hope it's nice where you are too!
Have a happy day:@)


  1. What a great quick fix on the swing!! I love that you found a wish list item! Junkin is the best and I still love it just buying much less now. Hugs!

  2. I haven a glider very much like your swing. I like your idea! Hugs!

  3. Are you kidding me, you found another press!!! ( meanwhile I keep forgetting to get one). I love it, I can't wait to see the little car cookies. : )
    and the noodles on the bench ~ brilliant!!!!!!

  4. What a neat cookie press, Lynn! I love all the disks, but the car is really cute.
    I have a glider almost just like yours that I sit and eat my lunch on everyday. I like the noodle idea. I keep two pillows on the sides, to help with some comfort. You're so creative, and I love cheap solutions!

  5. Wow, what a great find! Impressive that it still works so whoever owned it must have taken good care of it. You are so creative with the noodle cushioning!

  6. You find such treasures! I love your swing---so much more comfortable with a little padding. Think we're sending a heat wave your way---sorry!

  7. If the pool noodles end up being too hard, I think there are pipe covers at Home Depot that will do the same thing and they already have slits. They come in different sizes.

  8. I'm lovin' those discs from your new-to-you cookie press Lynn! The sailboat caught my eye right away ;) We have so many noodles that escape from docks and boats that float our way and end up on the shore. Brilliant and cheap hack...Keep Calm and Noodle On!


Thank you for stopping by-enjoy your day!
