Larry and I love our road trips - and for my birthday (the big 4-0!) - he took me on a drive and we drove and drove and drove. We were in Clifton, Dent, Mason, Liberty Township, Lebanon and every where in between!
The thing of it is - you don't have to have a bunch of money or even a plan - just get in your car and explore your city. I decided to share a couple of the stops with you for inspiration...
Good stuff on a hot summer day for sure!
After ice cream - we wandered more and ended up in Lebanon. We're both fans of antique shops and decided to stop into Miller's Antique Market. There are over 70 booths of all sorts of antiques. Overall - I think it was a bit pricey - but we did find a couple of good deals.
To which I said...
"Who the hell wants an old pair of FOURTY EIGHT DOLLAR dirty socks?!"
I love this quilt because it's got these great original 70s prints and it's funky - not your normal grama colors/fabrics - the black/yellow/white color scheme was so perfect (Hawkeye colors - right?!).
The coolest thing was that there was a quote sewn into it along with the name of the person that made it and who she made it for - along with the "born on" date of July 1977. I was just a babe of 4 back then!

So next time you find yourself with a free day and nothing to do - pick a neighborhood you haven't been to and drive around. See what hidden treasures Cincinnati has to offer you!
