MEANWHILE, BACK AT THE RANCH

There’s something on the roof

 

If you’ve ever driven the road between Marble Falls and Burnet, you know exactly what I’m talking about—you can’t miss it.  It’s the Pottery Ranch.  Just look for the armadillo, the dragon, the dinosaur and the bluebonnets…………and don’t forget the pots—-hundreds of pots.  Make that thousands of pots.  And, that’s just on the outside.  Once you finish walking around outside where the metal sculptures, yard art, giant cockroach, pigs and chickens are, you can go inside and find hundreds, maybe thousands, more doodads to gawk at.  It reminds me of, as a child, going to the border and getting sensory overload from all the trinkets.  Here, you can also find higher-end pieces like mesquite mantles, punched tin mirrors, and southwest placemats that are worthy enough to be in Ralph Lauren’s snootiest store.  The place is like a maze where you weave in and out of things you want to take home and other things that have you going “whaaaaaaaat?”        It’s a must stop when you are in the area and a favorite place to take out of town guest.  By the way, cute dog alert.

Yard art out the wazoo

 

Gotta have it.
