Good Tuesday Morning

I hope you’re all doing well. We have lots of cold and snow again in Colorado. This time no snow at the house when I left, but lots at the store. Won’t be long before the snow plows come by throwing snow and ice all over the front of the store. Guess the dirty windows will wait a while longer! 🙂

New treasures are coming to the store, and things are changing again. I am so excited about some of the stuff, that I keep touching thinking, maybe I should just take a couple home! 🙂

And then a pair of boston terrier salt & pepper shakers show up, and an adorable pair of deer salt and pepper shakers come in – you guessed it. They didn’t make it to the store floor, and yes I am taking them home!

Spring is on my brain so keep an eye out of new planters and planter ideas coming your way.

Hope you all have an awesome week!

Changes @ The Dumdi Ranch

A lot of changes are going on at the Dumdi Ranch recently.

John heads off to his first year of college – yes I did say college. I would like to know where the last 18 years have gone. I am very proud of the young man he has become and look forward to seeing what the future holds for him.

3 of the 5 horses at the ranch will be headed to Snyder Texas tomorrow with John tomorrow morning.

All of the steers & bull have gone to new homes, as well as the sheep. We still have the cow & heifer calf though. Ginger is still happy hanging around, and the dogs and cats!

WOW ~ feeding will take a lot less time now 🙂

Have an awesome day and we will talk more soon!

Closed on Tuesday Aug 14th & Wed Aug 15th Announcement

 

 

 

 

I am sorry for the late announcement of our closure on Tuesday August 14th and Wednesday August 15th.

There has been a couple of staff changes, and unfortunately I don’t have someone to work for me while I head to drop off my youngest at college this week.

We will be open our new regular hours again on Thursday August 16th.

Sorry for any inconvenience this will cause our customers.

 

 

Have an awesome week!!

Pet Pics from the Dumdi Ranch

Today I decided to share a few of the recent pics of my babies at the house! When you look through my phone, all you find are pics of cats and Winston 🙂

We have Winston, Buttercup, Pumpkin, & Itty Bitty!

 

Have an awesome day!

Winston

Everyone that sees Winston in the store just adores him, so I thought that I would start to share adorable (I think anyway) pics of him!

Story on this pic – we were camping and he wasn’t ready to go back to camp, so he decided that if he turned his back on me, he couldn’t hear me! Silly dog!

 

Have an awesome day, and more soon!

Happy New Year

I hope you all have a very Happy New Year with friends and family!

Stay Safe!

For the Love of Pyrex

Back in the day I had several sets of Pyrex, but they were the green and gold sets. Some of it made the trip to Colorado with me 20 years ago, and some didn’t.

As a mom with young children, as most of you know, you use plastic for many years. My girls are grown and gone, and John is no longer a baby so guess what – this mom has started a small collection of Pyrex again!

I sure would love to come across a few Pyrex pitchers and glasses like the set below. How awesome would these be in Esther (my 1960 Forester travel trailer)!

 

I think that this is one of my favorite patterns. I just love the colors – and yes, we have a few pieces in the store!

We have many complete sets, and single pieces if you’re looking to add to your collections, or start a new collection!

We will be doing a few articles on Pyrex. Check back for more info on it’s history and how to bring back the luster!

Have an awesome day!

ps. – don’t forget to share your pyrex collections pics with us!!

Spring has arrived at the Ranch
