Psych and Goodwill

Bye, Shawn and Gus, we will miss you!! Also, I promise to clean that cobweb off of you, *ahem*.
My family is so bummed. Last night was the last night of one of our very favorite tv shows, Psych. It was one of the few shows the whole family can watch and truly enjoy. I enjoyed it so much, these are really and truly my bobbleheads! I'm not a bobblehead fan in general, but back when we were enjoying Monk, I "had" to have  Monk bobblehead, and hubby was sweet enough to get me one. It only made sense to supply him with some company!


I planned on doing just a quick goodbye Psych post, then figured I may as well throw in some of my recent Goodwill finds. Most of my dishes are white - I love a pretty/cute/bright/fun coffee or tea cup, but for most of my dishes I just love simple white.  I really like this short, round coffee cup.


I found these two egg cups from France - Owen and Emma both love soft boiled eggs. I actually bought two more egg cups later (not sure where the pic went), for Amelia also loves soft boiled eggs, but somehow missed that the girl at GW wrapped them together. When I was quickly unwrapping the dishes, one of them went flying and shattered. *Sigh* When will I learn to slow down and pay more attention?


Terrible picture, but I found seven of these sweet little bowls - which is perfect for the seven of us still at home.




Lastly, I found this E O Brody milk glass bud vase, which I plan to use with a candle. I haven't seen this shape in our local stores before, and I really like it. When I first brought it home, I looked it up, and didn't realize they made so many vases and bowls with such lovely shapes. I usually see the more generic thrift store fare around here. I have one of their hobnail vases that I turned into a lamp, too, but haven't posted it because I want to crochet a lampshade for it first.

  2. Lovely finds, especially the bud vase, beautiful. I like white dishes and plates as well and I often pick them up when I see them. And I'm always on the lookout for egg cups, they're hard to find!

  4. That's the good thing about donating to Good Will, or charity shops as we call them here, you get to have a look around when you drop things off! That milk glass bud vase is beautiful, great find. x

    1. Yes, and I've been working through this year's giant Spring Clean to donate more than I buy, but I'm not entirely sure that's happened, heehee.
