It's fete season again!

I love September and October. Sure, spring starts, and all that, but it's also the start of the Fete Season! Every church, primary school, and community group puts on a fundraising fete, and that means I get to buy home made cakes, sift through trash and treasure, peruse old books, and bid on silent auctions!

Today's T&T haul includes some smart things for the home :

There's a willow pattern style cup and saucer made by Crown Lynn, the New Zealand ceramics maker I like to collect. Not the ultra gorgeous shape that is my official collection, but who can pass up such a pretty design?

Then we have a Fire King glass mug, with a cool orange decal on it. These mugs are getting very popular, and they are nice to hold, and nice to drink out of.

Then there's an awesome egg cup, made by Arabia (from Finland!). Would you say this is the prettiest Finnish egg cup you've seen all day?

And finally, I was highly amused by an old (1974) Melways street directory. Here's the map of Chadstone Shopping Centre, biggest in Melbourne. See how nervous the convent and schools are looking!
