Choices.. mine, hers and ours..



 Recently Aimee and I went to the 3IN1 Markets held four times a year at Claremont Showground. It's one of Perth's biggest markets, so much to see antique, vintage and food wise. Seriously, can you ever have enough plaid? Seen in a stall called 'My Finds in France' I came so close to purchasing the plaid lined suitcase above before coming to my senses.. damn those sensible senses, I want it more than ever now :) Aimee has a thing about shoes, in that she can't resist them! It was only a matter of budget that stopped her buying a pair of the beauties below from Shoe Fun..


After the effort of so much resisting 😉 neither of us even contemplated passing by Amanda's Cuisine.. Creme brulee for Aimee and a Portuguese tart pour moi.. incroyable, how I stopped at one was impressive! Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

  3. resisting the purchase of such beautiful shoes is always difficult. The suitcase is quite vintage. Nata pasteis are quite excellent. I went to eat them in Belem at the mouth of the Tagus, where they were created and it's excellent with a little cinnamon powder. there are many Portuguese people in my neighbourhood who make them very good too. Have a nice day

  4. Oh my, I'd need to budget each quarter to prepare for shopping there. That suitcase is divine.

  5. I'm not sure it's fair that you have so many wonderful sights and sites and markets and fairs and fireworks and just plain fun! But I'm glad you do and I'm glad you're having fun and I'm amazed at your self-discipline and self-control! I lose myself in those Portuguese goodies!

  6. I love those tarts too but creme brûlée is one of my favorites so I would have to go with Aimee's choice! Those shoes are fabulous, Grace!

  8. The suitcase looks ever so pucker. One Portuguese tart is surely inadequate nourishment. I remember at Portuguese hotel breakfasts, people would stockpile them for later.

  12. Good on you for resisting, you two, respect!
    Oh, when I was young(er) I wore shoes like that. But the last years... sneakers. Thongs. Think I accepted not being taller and prefer comphy. At least my sweet tooth fell asleep, too (but Ingo kept buying chips, argh!)!

  14. Mmmm that looks good to brows around, those shoes! Louis XVI could have worn them! And the Portugese pasteis I couldn't resist too.

  16. Those shoes are fun. I have a thing for shoes too, and that comes from having worked in "fancy" shoe store when I was a teenager. I would have bought the cane chair behind the suitcases.

  17. Oh my gosh, that shoe fun place is my kind of entertainment. I would have had a hard time not taking something or somethings home.

  18. I was getting plaid poisoning looking at that first photo. I would love to have some creme brulee right now. I love walking through places like this. You just never know what you might find there.
