Crown and anchor me



Just lookee who we had coffee with this morning!
Those gorgeous Squirrels are in town prepping for their big move, and just happen to be staying not 5 minutes from where we had band practice last night!
Made perfect sense to meet up for coffee at the Brick Mill Cafe, which is part of a huge old building that also houses a classic car shop, and art gallery, an antiques shop and a "garage sale" retro/vintage shop!
Despite turning off the highway just past this place every time we go out to Waikuku, I had taken zero notice of it!
Well, one lives and learns!




Um, yes, I appear to have Miss V transfixed by my boobage...




It was so bloody wonderful to see their chirpy little faces!
G and I are already sorting ourselves out for a visit to their sweet new little church home!


We had a splendid little natter over coffee, then perused the shopping options....and I happened to score this weird old vinyl bag and a darling navy blue So Obviously Rex handbag!

Quite a fitting way to spend a Sunday morning, I feel!

O, I recovered well enough from my hangover after a sea dip and some more vodka last night...

It quite a good time when you meet up with people that have your love of thrift and of dressing up!
Being transfixed on your boobage is a great way to break the ice!

"Chirpy" that is just about the most perfect word you could pick to describe V, I reckon...

Gorgeous little school tunic style dress! Very sweet with the white hair bow & vanity case!

I love love love how you do your hair, tried to do something similar this weekend and failed miserably. Clearly its an artform you have perfected. You are one of my dress-up icons xxx

Forest City Fashionista said...

You two are totally adorable! I love that plaid dress you're wearing - did you make it? Can't blame the Squirrel for being awed by the Helga cleavage; if I saw it in person I would be too ;)

Vix said...

Well, what woman in her right mind wouldn't be distracted by your magnificent rack? How fabulous to see the pair of you together, that sweet Miss Squirrel and the divine Queen H? That tartan frock and those film star specs rock and those holdall are ace.
Love you! xxx

A hidden treasure, the place doesn't look like much from the outside. Nice purses. Shows that you never know where you'll find something cool.

Being transfixed (do not know exactly what that means, but I'm guessing) by your boobage is certainly "easy to do". Jealous and flat woman from Sweden

señora Allnut said...

and that fabulous blue bags!!
besos & sea dips and vodka shots!

pastcaring said...

Well, of COURSE Miss V is mesmerised by your boobage, who isn't?!
How fabulous to meet up, the two of you look adorably gorgeous. Loving the tartan frock, and your bag purchases, and your Blue reference.
A Sunday morning with darling friends, nattering and coffee-ing and perusing sounds quite perfect! xxxxx

It looks like you had such a wonderful time. The sea foam green car you are standing in front of is just adorable.

I bet coffee with Vanessa was a blast.
