Hobnobbing and Bargain Bras


More of:   MINI VACATION IN MAYBERRY 


Below is the cabin we stayed in.  This place was sweet!!  In all of my travels, I can't remember a place more clean, cozy, and 'feel-good'!  I'll take you inside in another post...  


But for now, meet some of our new friends from
 our stay at Holly Hills Cabin...


Talk about feeling welcome!  

Even the animals were friendly!!


It was a little on the chilly side.  I'd love to go back in warmer weather when I can enjoy the outdoors more.


Today we got a package from the owner of the place.  Gary left some of his shirts in the closet and he was kind enough to send them to us.  


Just look at these cute faces.


Who could ask for better neighbors!

 More friends...













When we weren't hobnobbing with the neighbors, we were in town looking for bargains.

Have you ever went to one of those 'bargain bin' venues where they have hundreds of boxes of 'made in china' faux brand name items.  

Like for example instead of Sharpies for $4 they 
sell Sharlies for $1.  

Or instead of Duracell batteries for $6 they 
have Ducachell for $1.  ?? 

 I will have to admit, I've fallen victim to this 
deception myself on occasion.  

BUT> 

Who. In. Their. Right. Mind. > 

would purchase a $2 bargain bra?



  

To Be Continued....

In my lifetime, I have had to buy the occasional 'bargain bra'.

Looks like a really peaceful, playful place! Gracie would have loved it!

It looks like a great place to stay. Love the neighbors, especially the spotted donkey! Cheap clothing is OK, just not shoes, bras or panties. If those items aren't comfortable, the whole day is ruined!
Blessings!

Oh my gosh, you didn't???? I can't wait to find out! I think my favorite picture here is the first one, with the vertical trees and horizontal clouds, it is wonderful! I would never have wanted to leave the cabin with all these cute animals around, can't wait to see inside...were there perhaps checkered curtains that Aunt Bee hung up?

What a cozy little place! Did the donkeys talk to you? They can sing too! We used to have some.
Your trip sounded like so much fun.
I wonder if you did?

Looks like a charming and fun place to stay. What a pretty view too!

GORGEOUS cabin. Looks cozy. All your new friends are sweet. Hey they were pricing things like they did when Andy, Barney and Aunt Bee were living there, right? Was the bra worth the $2? Dying to know. Take care.

Jenni said...

I'm so loving the cozy cabin! What fun! and the neighbors look to have been a real wild and wooly bunch.

LOVE the "high maintenance" sheep, or was it a goat? with all the long hair....hee.

And, sigh, your bargain comments brought to mind the "Chanel" watch I got at an unbelievably low price that turned my wrist green.......

Glad y'all had a good mini vacay, though!
Hugs,
Jenni

What a fab vacation that sounded like! Love the cabin and all the animals! Wish my bras were only $2! Sigh.

I've been to Mount Airy but I had no idea they had cabins for accommodations in the area. What a pretty setting.
