Spring is getting ready to Spring!

It has been super cold here in Colorado, and I for one am happy that spring is on the way! I am ok with the snow, but we have had a lot with really cold temps!

Driving to work the last couple of days I noticed that the cows in the area are having their babies! oh, how I love babies! Birds are building nests and laying eggs. Eagle cam are online, eggs are laid, and soon we’ll get to watch them grow like weeds!

Last year we sold all of our ewes and lambs. I am going to miss the babies this spring, but I have not missed feeding in this cold. Yep, I am a wimp! ;0 Won’t be till fall before we have another baby on the place when John’s cow gives birth.

Ziggy is growing like a weed, and love going to work with Winston and mom.


I hope you guys feel inspired to to spend a few minutes a day just enjoying life around you! Spring is almost here and we’ll have lots of color with the leaves on trees, and flowers a bloomin.

Thanks for stopping by today, and every day to see what we’re up to!

Have an awesome week.

Nancie, Winston & Ziggy

Spring Planting

Who is ready to plant spring flowers? I am – all you see around here is brown and white (snow). I am ready for some color!

I am definitely looking for a bike to plant at the store this spring!


Have an awesome day!

Vintage Bedsprings

Have you seen vintage bedsprings around the shop and thought we were nuts? Why in the world would someone buy a bedspring?

There are soooo many creative ways to use bedsprings!

Looking for a primitive way to hold you recipe card or vintage pictures? Just add a small clip and you all set!



What an unusual way to serve snacks! This is such a cute idea for your primitive setting, and it doesn’t take up a lot of room.



And for the green thumbs! I LOVE this – I am going to create me a couple for the kitchen!


Have an awesome day, and don’t forget to share how you use vintage rusty bedsprings!

Gardening with Copper


Not quite sure what to do with those old copper pots we have at the store? Well, wonder no longer. Here is a wonderful idea, and the copper flower pots already have holes in them for water drainage.

Take these copper flower pots from this –
