Naff said

I'm not fashionable, or cool.  Never have been, and I never will be.  Most might consider my taste in household goods as a bit naff.  But I wear the label proudly, because who wants to be like anyone else?

My latest naffy obsession is vegetable shaped soup tureens.   Since Christmas I have managed to acquire these two.

I know you're jealous, you can admit it. 
Do you have any of these?  Have you seen them before?  I think they are just amazing.  I nabbed the cauliflower one from the Women's Auxiliary shop down at the Hastings RSL, and the other was found in a Hastings op shop by A's mother.  The cauli is a little more detailed and refined, but the aubergine is just as charming.

I am working on expanding my collection, and hope to add at least a pumpkin and a corn tureen.  Stay tuned!

Speaking of naff, I picked this little souvenir up at David Campbell's performance last night.

Wash me up before you go go?  Oh my sides have actually split!
It's a souvenir tour tea towel!  Yes, a TEA TOWEL!!  I have never seen such merchandise ever sold at any other concert.  I had to have one.  And, most awesomely, Mr Campbell was graciously signing stuff after the show, and yes, that is his signature there.

It seems that much of Mr Campbell's audience were grannies, and then there was me.  All I have to say to that is, My Grandmotherly Ways indeed....

  1. Oh my gosh, those soup tureens are so cool! I adore how the cauliflower one has another bit of cauliflower coming out of it for the handle ^_^

    Also, souvenir tea towels are the best! I have one from a Lisa Mitchell show that is super cute ^_^

    P.S. When I came over to comment from Google Reader, I noticed that I couldn't see any of your text ... it seems to be in white over here? Unless this is a secret message, and if it is I'm sorry to have ruined everything, maybe it's a little glitch?

  2. Those soup tureens are so funny :)

    I don't think I have ever been cool or fashionable - it's much more fun not to be in my opinion - cool means having to keep up with what's cool, whereas us "regular" folk get to have fun doing exactly what we like!

  4. Oh I love your tureens! I have some cauli serving platters that I inherited from my nana years ago that look like that could belong to your cauli soup tureen. Are you going to use your tureens or are the for display purposes only!!???
