~ Watch Lily the Black Bear that gave birth ~

Ok, not only do we have eagle webcams, hawk webcams, to watch, we now have black bear webcams to watch. How are we every going to get any work done??? I sure don't know.

I love to watch these webcams, and listen in on these beautiful animals. Below is a link to Lily, and she is a beaut. Enjoy!!


This link below has a clip of Lily moving around, and you can even hear her talk to the cub and the cub talk and cry.


Have a great weekend!!

~ 2010 Eagle Cam Update ~

It is almost time to start watching eagles and hawks again. I am so excited. Thought I would check a few of my favorites, and thought that I would share the web address so that all of you can get updated on what is happening.

Camera is all set up and waiting for the eagles to decide to start furnishing their home.

I am so jealous of my son

I am so jealous of my son - him and his dad went to the stock show last night, he moved to a lower seat above the bucking shoots, and ended up he was sitting in Don Baylor and Jim Tracy's seats (they are Colorado Rockies coaches).

Both men had him stay there, and talked the night away with him and asking questions about the rodeo, as that was Jim's first time at a rodeo. How cool is that. I am so jealous!!!!!!

At the time John didn't know that the seats belonged to Don and Jim because they were in the stage coach during an intermission. Boy did he come home excited!!

~ What's new this week ~

I don't know where the cleaning fairies were when I was on vacation, but they weren't at the store working. All the Christmas stuff that was left is put away, and the store is cleaned and looking more like spring.

I have not gotten anything new made within the last several weeks, with Christmas, vacation, and moving the store around, but we do have some great vintage glass items. We have added some vintage cut glass water glasses, water pitcher, milk bottles, cute juice glasses, and so much more.

If you are looking for unique cream & sugar sets, we have added several styles, along with cut glass, and USA pottery.

We also added 1999 Super Bowl Champion Denver Bronco Coke Classic 6 packs of coke. Bottles are full, and a great collector items for Denver Bronco Fans!!

Hope you all have a great day!!

John made it to the Denver Post. Not sure how it will come through here, but he is in the 2nd picture, wearing a black cowboy hat. He is standing on the fence talking with his best buddy.

~ Store Hours ~

Wanted to let everyone know that our store hours are back to normal:

Wednesday through Saturday
10 am - 6 pm

Our On-line Store is still open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

~ Back in Colorado ~

We are home from our long road trip. We had so much fun visiting family in Idaho and Oregon, and of course I went shopping. That was a lot of fun.

Apparently Haley thinks that we did not bond enough in the truck as she thinks that I should be holding her all day, but customers call. Maybe I spent too much time with her??

I got some BEAUTIFUL wool yarn that I am going to use on my dolls. I can hardly see them with it. I am so excited.

I also picked up a bunch of stuff from my sister's that she was storing for me, an oak table that was my grandmother's, a tea cart that was my grandfather's on my dad's side, my mom's cedar chest, and so much more. I still have to go through all of the boxes to see what is there.
