Mountain Scene-Part 3

If you have been staying in tune with my mountain trip then you know that we loved every minute of our time while vacationing. You can see scene 1 and scene 2 of my mountain trip here and

I ended scene 2 with a big ole stack of french toast, sausage, orange juice and coffee!

Had to have some energy for all the shopping I done that day!!!!

 Lid'l Dolly's here I come! 

 Love that little shop. You can find some of the neatest things in there. I have some of the prettiest napkins I bought from there several years ago that I use a lot. Came out with a bag full of goodies for the grandgirls....and ME! LOL!

Then to the Knife Factory! LOVE that place and like it so good I went twice while there. NO.....not just knives there my friends....anything you can imagine and then some!

Needless to say Papa found the grandson a sword which is longer than the grandson and a bag of other goodies! YES $$$$$$ was spent that day!

Next to the DISH STORE! OH MY! You all know that My name is Cindy and I am a dishaholic!!! I actually done good and was so proud of myself....but only after my man said, "Do you intend on riding on top of the vehicle because you are not going be able to get inside the car with all the stuff we have!!!! (I also hit some Thrift stores girls and my vehicle was beginning to moan and groan) Will have to post on that another day!

Hee-Hee....I did find me a few deals!!!!And I made it fit in the car! You know it's bad when a gentleman in the store asked if I needed for him to carry my bag to the car because it was heavy!!!

We did stop at different places but this was a neat little store....

This place was WAY to pricey for me. However, made me wonder if I needed to go home and try to SELL some of the very things that I have bought and paid $1 for and some of those same items was selling for $50 in that Antique store! CRAZY! My husband said that I was sitting on a gold mine at home and didn't know it with my stash of goodies from Thrift stores and Yard sales!

NOW HERE IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT!!!!!I found all sorts of little thrift shops along the way to browse in...and yes, I came home with more dishes!!!


We decided to take a ride through Cades Cove. Been many times through Cades Cove but I love riding through there. So beautiful!

 Saw a few deer along the way and even a coyote.

Such a beautiful place.

 Then a little sightseeing...

Loved this old truck.

We saw so many beautiful churches that was beyond description but this quaint little church in the valley just caught my eye...

And loved the sign....Isn't it the truth? If we don't have love for one another we really do not have anything.

This sign should be posted at every single business!

Well after a long and fun day of shopping and site seeing we headed back to the cabin and finished up with yet another great meal!!!!

Grilled Salmon and Asparagus!

And a good ending to a good day....

Husband said, "feet propped by the fire, cup of coffee in hand and the remote control nearby...don't get much better!

Stay tuned....snow pictures and a special time with a blogging friend to come!

 Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good. His love endures forever. Psalm 136:1

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  2. You did really well with your shopping! Can't wait till you share some of your spoils!!

  3. Isn't it sad that I live near all those places and rarely go to any of them? So glad you found so many goodies. And you're right about the Knife Works.....that store really is awesome. It takes a while to go through all the little areas.....but the kitchen part is my favorite! Love your necklace!! You know I'm looking forward to Scene #4!!! :)

  4. Hi Cindy, I'm really looking forward to seeing your dishes! I am a dishaholic too, although I have weeded some out, keeping only my favorites. It's fun to set a pretty table.
    Hugs, Beth

  5. Oh Miss Cindy, I love me some dishes too girl! :-) Good thing we don't shop together .... WE might have to open a thrift store to recycle ... LOL.

    Thank you for sharing your vacation and Gods blessings along the way :-). Johnna D.

  6. I loved seeing your adventures. Hope we get to see what was inside those shopping bags! What fun.


So glad you stopped by to visit.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
