Friday Wrap Up: Golf and Summer in Review

Golf and Summer in Review

Let me just say that I really messed this summer thing up.  It is May 2nd and we have measurable amounts of snow here in Iowa.  We thought about packing our bags and heading to a beach, however were going to give Iowa another try at summer!

Saturday

Trisha Trixie talked to us about her childhood and growing up in the 70s.  She talked about music, the outdoors and just being overall happy.  You must read to find out the meaning of “don’t stir the ice cream!”

Sunday

We prepared beef kabobs ala summer fun!  This simple, fast recipe is great for busy weekends.

end

Monday

Mad Men had a focus on the shooting of MLK.  This made Trisha Trixie think about how this tragic event correlated with what occurred in Boston.  That is was okay and normal to feel the pain of those we have never met and question how something so horrible could ever happen.  “How are yousince it happened?”

Tuesday

We created a repurposed frame for the golf fanatic. This project could be done with any sport.  It is a fun twist on an old frame!

finished

Wednesday

We looked at golf fashion throughout the ages.  It is fun to see how dress has evolved over the years to meet the needs of golfers.   Also, we had a date night in a jar to feature for May day!  Did you get any lovely May day surprises?

Thursday

We looked at the history of women and golf.  Analyzed the social elements of golfing.  If you golf, what do you gain from golfing?

We have had a wonderful week here at Trisha Trixie design. We are working to keep our Store up to date.  Keep checking back for fun ideas that may inspire your own creative passions!

Throwback Thursday: Women in Golf History Declared

Women in Golf

1800s

Mary Queen of Scots was a known golfer

Ladies attire was not known for flexibility on the range.

1811

The first known women’s golf tournament was held in Scotland at the Musselburg Golf Club.

1867

The first ladies golf course is formed, The Ladies Club of St. Andrew’s in Scotland

1894

A group of women from Morristown New Jersey Opened a seven hole golf club.  However, they made the mistake of allowing men and once one was elected president the club became a man’s only facility.

1904

The raisable skirt was introduced in golf; it had been popular with crochet players in the past.  The free stroke coat was introduced so women could freely use their arms.

1950s

The one piece dress made popular in the 50s was also popular on the golf range.  Women golfed for social interaction.  Shouldn’t women do more today, just to socialize beyond Facebook?

1960s

It was acceptable for women to wear short sleeves and bermuda shorts on the range.

Today

Women’s clubs are made about an inch shorter than men’s clubs due to the assumption that the women’s swing speed is slower than a mans.  This was not always the case. in the past, where the biggest difference might have been a girly club house.

These cute little slipcovers were found at Ladies Golf News.

 

Wednesday What Not: Golf Fashion and May Day Maddness

May Day Madness

So, we have all gotten the little cups with popcorn and M&Ms dropped at our door.  But we wanted to look for a more adult twist on this idea.  Through 504 Main, we located many gifts in a jar.  A featured item was a miniature golf date in a jar!

Mini+Golf+Date+In+A+Jar

I love this idea and I think you could really add your own spin to this gift giving idea.  Who might be deserving of such a May Day gift?

 

Golf Fashion Through the Years.

Golf has always been the place to be fashionable for women.  Having the right shoe and ensemble is just as important as how you play the game.

1894

The basic ensemble of the 1890s was a simple blouse and a long skirt about 3 inches off of the ground.  This sleeves often made a full swing difficult and the golf club often got caught up in the skirt.  Can you imagine?

The Twentieth Century

Women began to prefer the jacket, skirt, and blouse ensemble.  However, around 1909 the jacket was replaced with a cardigan.  This might have provided a bit more comfort.

1915

Finally, Jersey material was introduced.  The cardigan and the skirt were often made of jersey material.  This provided for more comfort.

1925

modernpris1925shay

The golfing sweater vest became the latest rage.  This allowed for more movement in the swing.

Mid 1920s

The one piece golf dress was all the rage.  The skirts and sleeves were shorter.  I think this is a fun look.  Love those stockings!

1930s and 40s

Dresses modeled fashion trends.  The skirt did not get shorter and many stylish patterns were available.

1950s

It was common for women to where a blouse, skirt and often a cashmere sweater.  Golfing shoes were becoming a new fashion statement. Some women even wore nickers and blouses to the range.

2000s

iStock_000006863575XSmall

Most women wear shorts, polos and cute golfing shoes on the range.  What would you prefer to wear?

My favorite look is the 40s.  It is classic.  Perhaps, we should plan a retro day at the range?  Trisha Trixie has been working away hard to make many golfing items.  Keep an eye on her site for more details!

This meal calls for the help of a super hero.  Wouldn’t your guy look fashionable in this apron?  Perhaps he is a fan of another character, well Trisha Trixie Designs is always happy to custom design for you.  Check out this apron at our Shop.

We, also, used something called firewire to create out kabobs.  These are not a requirement, but do make the job easier.

firewire

 

These can be found at many retailers near you.  They make marinating, organizing and cooking much easier.  

webermit

 

One of these mitts or something similar will come in handy.  This particular one can be found on Amazon, but I’m sure you could locate one at many major retail stores.  I am thinking that Trisha Trixie designs could make this cooking accessory more individualized.  Wouldn’t that be a great Father’s day gift?

 

Needed Ingredients

1. A pound of sirloin

2. Pineapple rounds

3. Two green, red or yellow bell peppers

4. Whole mushrooms

5. A marinade of your choice (We used the Lawrys Teriyaki Marinade)

Directions

1. Cut meat, green peppers, pineapples into large chunk sizes (About an inch square)

2. Put meat, green peppers, pineapples and mushrooms on the firewire skewers or in a container if you don’t have the skewers.  

puttingtogetherjpeg

3. Put marinade into the container (Add skewers and extra veggies) and let sit in refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours.

4.  Pull the skewers and veggies out of the refrigerator.  

5.  On a small cookie sheet put foil.  Add the veggies to the foil.

6. Put the cookie sheet on the top shelf of your grill.  Throw the firewire or your own skewers onto the bottom of the grill.  If using the firewire, make sure that the metal hangs outside of the grill.  This allows the ends to be cool and makes taking the meat off the skewers an easier task.

7.  Let the skewers cook until the meat is to your liking.  We cooked for about 8 minutes, which is medium rare.  

8.  Take them of the grill and remove items from the skewers!  You are ready to eat up.
