Non-Consumer Photo Essay — Pee on Earth, Goodwill Towards Men

by Katy on December 11, 2013 · 6 comments

Lucky you, it’s for another Non-Consumer Photo Essay! (Of course, everything is from my Instagram account!)

Pee on earth, goodwill towards men:

A special pillow from my mother’s house:

A sadly unpurchased but still adorable vintage tray with a kicky Moomin Valley vibe:

A great Smith-Corona vintage typewriter with case that I picked up at Goodwill:

A crackling fire in my fireplace. I was annoyed to discover that the flue has been open since last winter:

The discovery that Goodwill takes old electronics for e-cycling. I know that this practice is often less than ideal, but it’s still good to know:

A to-die-for slab of cranberry coffee cake. I used the Momeye’s Coffee Cake recipe, and tweaked it by using 1/3 whole wheat flour, slightly less sugar and omitting the cinnamon. I swirled approximately a cup of leftover cranberry sauce into the dry ingredients, and the result was heavenly:

Pee on Earth – crack me up! 🙂
I love your fireplace, Katy.

The pillow is darling. Your blog is one of the little things that makes me happy.

The “Happiness Is Found In Little Things”pillow has a companion one saying “When a Baby Is Born, So Is a Grandmother.” I put them in the guest cottages when a granny comes to visit her Portland grandbabies. (Needless to say, this treasures come from Goodwill, mostly the As-Is!)

Bummer on the flue being open. Shudder to think of all that heated or cooled air going straight up into the atmosphere.

We did the same thing with our flue our first winter in our new house.

We couldn’t figure out why we were so cold and the gas bill was so high….

Our bills haven’t been any higher that I’ve noticed, but I’m still kicking myself!
