Today we did a whole lot of walking and exploring some of the thrift stores in Melbourne 😀
James who loves shopping is suave as ever!
Our tour guides were Celesteand this awesome book 😀
We saw a whole lot of cute things including beautiful tea pots, dresses and skirts. One of my favorite dresses for the day was this blue number which reminded me of a Regency gown. It’s hard to see here but the details of the flower chains were lovely. I didn’t end up buying it, but I did end up buying the pink skirt hanging up for a whopping $4.99 😀 You’ll have to wait until next time for photos of the haul!
I think we ended up hitting around 8 stores today! I can’t wait to have some more money to go shopping with… I left behind the most beautiful 4 piece Maxwell Williams mug/plate/dinner plate set in mint green with pink flowers only $15 but out of my budget ;_;
After all of the shopping we stopped in for lunch at Ping’s Dumpling Kitchen.
Delicious noodles, dumplings and crispy chicken rice was had!
I tried something called Chinese Black Fungus which was a first! It’s kind of like yummy jelly… but it was also hairy so I didn’t like the texture XD
The lovely Celeste:
The green tea was yummy too. VERDICT: DO WANT
I’ve been obsessing a bit over green tea lately, what are all of your favorite blends? I really like Jasmine at the moment 😀
Now some lovely architecture I spotted this week…
This arcade houses my favorite chocolate shop: Haigh’s!
They have the most beautiful mosaics all over the floors.
And the ceilings are wonderful too. There are fantastic details pretty much everywhere you look in this place!
I received the most lovely letter from Omthis week too, I can’t wait to sit down and write her a reply. She included the cutest little hair bows (photos later) too. I love receiving snail mail 😀 I mean I love email but it’s so nice to get a good old fashioned letter. I love seeing other people’s hand writing!
James’ baking this week consisted of one very yummy swirly sponge cake ^_^
And I’ll leave you with the worst number plate I have ever seen in my entire life… Yes it is made of torn cardboard and written on with a ball point pen -_-‘
Tomorrow I am going to show you all how I painted those rose print nails in a video tutorial 😀
Have you all had a good week?
