Emergency dishes

I saw a set of dishes the other day at Goodwill, and tried really hard not to buy them.

But they were pretty, and in nice shape, and I thought they kind of went with my dishes, and I knew I could use some extras, and I ended up bringing them home.  MJL laughed at me and when Anna asked, he said they were emergency dishes.

But this week we've fed lots of hungry workers, and we've used my new bowls several times already.  So there, world!  I did need them after all.

MJL did point out that even if I am able to resist the dishes 9 out of 10 times, we are still going to end up with too many dishes.  He's right.  I just love dishes.

I love dishes too. Remind me of that when we buy a house - the only cure for me is small cupboards.

Super cute dishes. Can't wait to enjoy them! :)

Very cute! Sometimes I try really hard not to buy stuff at Goodwill--but then it is still there when I go back again (or perhaps I make a special trip just to see if it is still there...)

REALLY cute dishes. As an emergency doctor, I can give my professional opinion that this was a clear case of a dishes emergency.
