The 22nd of November was our 3rd year wedding anniversary and we treated ourselves to a couple of cafe breakfasts. The first one was on the weekend and we headed down to Croydon for coffee and brekkie, then Burwood for a browse (okay, I did buy some nice vintage style tops. and perhaps a cardigan....). I've been getting back into photography again with my SLR, however being old-fashioned with my lovely film, I've yet to process them and share. Promise I'll get back to it!

On the actual day of our anniversary, I woke up and told my husband "Man I feel Ugly today!". His response? "Well get ready, make yourself feel pretty and let's go to Newtown!" As he usually works, My response was a "whaa?".
Turns out he had planned the day off and wanted to take me to my favourite trendy shop strip: King St, Newtown, Sydney. I''d been wanting to go back so badly after we had amazing Thai there with E & Z in October. HOoRaY! What an awesome hubby.
This was a fairly good choice for a day out with our little boy; we could take it at a slow pace but still see many things. What would the day be like without this gorgeous little face?

|I love my vintage green earrings - thank you Steph!|
|I wish I ordered what Tom did - YUM Chorizo and cornbread mmmmm|
|Okay, so my muesli wasn't sooo bad..|
|Aw, I love his staring expressions. If only it was easier to catch his constant squeals and chuckles at the outside world!|
|Check out his awesome vintage shoes! Thanks Aunty Lisa!|
|Anyone else a fan of 'The Kiss'? You could buy teacups, saucers, plates, platters and cupcake stands - just about anything with 'The Kiss' all over it! Made me think of E.|
|How awesome, this place does alternative, VINTAGE and Classic hairstyles! How lovely!|
About a day or two later a parcel arrived express from Adelaide - from the lovely E & Z! As we opened it I smelt cookies! Sure enough there were beautiful spiced ginger biscuits inside a lovely tin (I ADORE THIS TIN) and with a quaint perfectly suited card.
I've FINALLY found the perfect chairs. I was hoping to collect a set off odd vintage chairs but when I saw these I knew they were for us. Tom agreed. Here's a sample:
I'll show you more of the whole dining area when I finish setting it up. I've always loved the old style backing but the cushion area is just the happy, pretty sort of colours that make me smile.
Meanwhile some random shots I love and my house this past month ...

|Yep, this is what happened when Max pulled the full vase towards himself.|
