|cafe at Hamptons Home Living|
I had a spare few hours this afternoon...Some very precious few hours to myself.
Sibs went to a birthday party and I went browsing through Paddington. This is a suburb just next to where I live and it's full of gorgeous little boutique type shops, some antique places and various cafes. I love the fact that there are old run down little workers cottages just next door to beautiful homeware shops. It's full of surprises. One of the reasons that I was keen to spend some time there this afternoon was to visit a new shop. I had driven past a few times and had annoyed a driver behind me the other night because I went past a little on the slow side so that I could have a nosy... So to prevent any potential accidents whilst driving past I thought it was time to visit.
This new place is called Hamptons Home Living. Even the name sounds tempting doesn't it? Well it doesn't disappoint. It's like walking into a delightful show home full of all the things that you love. The set up is elegant and comfortable with lovely things in every corner. It's cleverly styled almost like a home with a living area, some kitchen things displayed on a long table and even a styled bedroom....I just wanted to move straight on in. Then at the back is a wonderful veranda overlooking the city where you can sit and relax with a magazine and a coffee - bliss....and this is exactly what I did. (Oh, and a rather nice macadamia chocolate brownie found it's way onto my table too!)
Tania and Luke the owners were really welcoming and friendly and I'm sure this place is going to be a great hit. Soon they will be opening their kitchen so us locals can enjoy breakfast on the veranda - sounds good to me.
So this evening I'm sitting here with a glass of wine, Sibs and three friends are quietly watching a dvd,
my new candle smells divine,
and life is good...
