Thrifting Found in Cincinnati OH

My husband has been in Cincinnati since the first week of  September. He has a project at his home base company which is in Cincinnati for about 3 months. He stay in hotel studio with  kitchenette . I came here in first week of October to be with him.

While we are here, we take the advantage exploring the City of Cincinnati. One thing I like to do go to thrift store.

We visit Goodwill store a few days ago. Discount system in Virginia and Cincinnati is different. On the day that we went they have 50 % off everything no exclusion. They always have some kind of discount everyday. I have the whole month of October calendar.

They do have Value City Thrift, this store only have 25 % of on Monday. But if you have patient looking through out the store you might find something for .29 and hit the jack pot. The store is huge, well at least the one that we have been in Fairfield area also the one close to Kenwood area ( I forgot the exact )

We found some nice things from Goodwill with reasonable price after the discount. Note : Goodwill price now days is very high in my opinion.

We found this Waterford footed compote for $3 after discount. This is a real steal. Someone sell it on eBay for $200. We debating should we sell it or keep it :)

All these clothes 50 % off from $4.99 I found some good stuff and one of them still new. Don't you just love thrifting :)????

For The Love of Andy Griffith Show

This past weekend my husband and I took a trip up to the mountains of  North Carolina... Mt. Airy to be exact. Mayberry days were in full swing and husband is a big fan of the Andy Griffith show and he watches it every night before he goes to bed. I know you would be bored but not my husband. There is something about that show that makes him fall asleep right away.

This weekend, we decided to take a trip to see our first Mayberry day. This is our second trip to visit Mt. Airy the first one was here.


Andy Griffith must be a family thing because his cousin is even crazier about the show. What a great way to spend time with family. We meet them at his parents farm house which wasn't far from Mt. Airy... about a 30 minute drive.


We got there Friday afternoon and went to Mt. Airy for a couple of hours. Because it was Friday there wasn't much going on. Basically, we just walked around the town and visited the courthouse. Spending the night at the farm house was great. We really enjoyed  the hospitability of my husband's Aunt and Uncle. We slept so good. I just love the feeling of the mountains and the quietness of the farm. They have such a nice and warm, welcoming family. Life in the country reminds me of my the times I visited my grandma as a child.

The next morning we went to Mt. Airy again for the parade which started at 9 o'clock in the morning. I personally loved the parade but there didn't seem to be much else that you didn't have to pay to see. We went to the Andy Griffith museum and had lunch at snappy lunch. I heard it was really famous for their pork chop sandwich. It was worth the 40 minute wait in line. I think this was the most popular place in town and the price wasn't bad at all.


Yum pork chop sandwich from snappy lunch !!

My husband wasn't really impressed with Mayberry days. They don't put very much into it. For me it's a very basic festival. I think because this show is getting old or is it just me. But we still enjoyed our weekend and had a great time with the family.

What a peaceful life in the country

My husband's Aunt and Uncle and us
And the most interesting thing was my husband just found out about the family history from his uncle that his great grandparents from his dad's side came and used to live in the town close the his Aunt's farm house. We went to visit his great grandparents cemetery.
My husband's great grandparents were once a members of this church and his great grandma used to play organ here

Bring Back The Old Dresser Into Delicious Peach Taste

I found this dresser one day just sitting by my dumpster apartment. I asked my husband to bring it into the house ( that is what husband for right to lift the heavy stuff :) Thanks babe !!. Although, he was hesitate at first with my crazy idea. I told him I will do something with it. The dresser was still in a great condition. Only need to be clean and refresh with paint.

So, we start work on it and magic happened it turned out into a beautiful, lovely and tasty peach. I used all the materials I already have on hand. Paint and the old knobs from the church yard sale I found a while back and cost me about $2 total. I put it on craigslist so somebody else will enjoy it to.

We really enjoyed working with this dresser and much happier today someone just came to get it.

I wish I took picture before I did all the work but I think you will enjoy the after better :)
