Just don’t get a flat tire!

Snoopy Snowman Penguin Scooter Vespa Christmas Inflatables Yard Art

Hooray! The Christmas Scooter inflatables are here! In fact we’ve only ever featured one inflatable here before at ScooterSwag. They were these scooter riding sock monkeys . But now we have Snoppy and a snowman (and penguin). The photo of the Snoopy was shot at a Lowe’s Home Improvement store but you can also order him for $89 online here .

The much larger snowman is available at Bed Bath & Beyond for $120 here .

Thanks to Tom C. for the Snoopy find!

Happy Scooter to you.

Laughing Elephant Happy Birthday Scooter Vespa Retro Vintage Card

For $18.90 you can pre-order these cards from Barnes & Noble . They come in a set of six. The inside message reads:

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? – Satchel Paige

The illustration comes from a mid-century children’s book and man oh man would I love to know what book that is.

Thanks to Julie G. for this find!

The Speculaas Cookie Mold rides again.

Scooter Vespa Heinkel Speculaas Cookies Mold

Remember this “Rare Bit O’Swag” I posted awhile back — the Goggo/IWL/Heinkelesque cookie mold? Well I finally got around to making cookies with it due in large part to the help of my friend Jessica S.

We had loads of fun making them and we were amazed a wooden mold could make such great looking cookies. I want to play around using other recipes to see what kind of results I get.

Want to take a stab at making Speculaas with you own molds? Check out this very well done video and the recipe. Keep in mind that Jessica and I used double the spices for a delicious result. We even added fresh ground pepper.
