It is with a broken heart and flowing tears that I take a moment to honor and celebrate my sweet kitty Gypsy who was often my DIY model and muse.

This DIY project will be glad you are going downhill—at least on the ski slopes! You won’t wipe out when you upcycle old ski poles into a new windchime that will capture attention and make music, whether or not they are calling for snow.Read More
I absolutely love this time of year, from putting up festive lights to baking gingerbread cookies. Christmas is definitely my favorite time of the year. I usually decorate my entire house and I love hosting holiday parties. Let me share with you a few of my favorite things I thrift during the holiday season.Read More
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! One of my favorite activities of the holidays is baking, even though I prefer cooking over baking. A person is allowed to improvise with the ingredients in cooking than with measuring in baking. However, it is still a chore that I enjoy. Baking equipment can be expensive for quality products; however, Goodwill has everything you need at amazing prices.Read More

Throughout the pandemic, I have rediscovered hobbies and activities from my childhood, including roller skating. As a child and a youth, some of my favorite moments included hanging out and skating at the local skate rink with family and friends. I even had a skate party for my 8th birthday as a child.Read More
It’s been a spooky October at my house. October is hands down my favorite month in the fall season. I was yearning to watch classic nostalgic movies this month. Spooky, scary, vampy, psychological thrillers is what I was looking for. I was visiting my family one day in Woodbridge, VA and decided to stop by the Goodwill. This is one of my favorite locations. For those that don’t know, I lived in Woodbridge for 7 years before moving to DC so it was one of the stores I would frequent often.Read More
This month, I’m going to talk about dragons! As I did here last November. I identify with, love and collect them. And I was born in a Chinese Year of the Dragon (1976). A couple few times a year, I have a Dragon Day on my social media, where all my posts are dragon-themed. I also have Lizard Days – including alligators and crocodiles.Read More
A few weeks ago, I decided to go thrift shopping on Indigenous People’s Day in Prince William County. A few of my favorite Greater Washington Goodwill stores are South Dakota Ave and Clinton; however, it is nice to visit other stores outside your area. The Liberia Ave and Dale City stores are located in Prince William County, which is about 30 miles outside of Washington, DC.Read More
