Have I ever mentioned my undying love and affection for Cath Kidston?
I love her style. I love the bright, cheery colors. I think she is one of my favorite inspirations right now. We went in a Cath Kidston shop while we were in England last year and it was dreamy. But also expensive. (Or posh as they'd say in the UK.) Particularly because the exchange rate was so dreadful. But it was fun to dream and be inspired.
Do you love Cath Kidston too? Did you know that you can request one of the CK magazine/catalogs for free?? Just go to the website and click where it says Request a Magazine in the upper right-hand corner. Fill-out the info and a book of beautiful, colorful goodness will magically appear in your mailbox (or I should say post box) a few days later.
I have been thoroughly enjoying and trying not to drool all over my copy. Thumbing through it just makes me happy and want to live a more colorful life. (My house is so beige right now - nothing on the taupe walls yet.) Partly because of pictures like the one above. I want to make a quilt like the patchwork covering this chair! And if I were a knitter I would totally keep my things in a bag just like this. Maybe I'll just go out and buy some pretty balls of yarn and put them in a red polk-a-dot (or spotted) bag and prop them on a cozy chair.
I also love all the wonderful britishisms like: rucksacks, tea cozies, favourites, knickers, wellies, brollies, and washing up liquid. Gives me some serious warm fuzzies. Many thanks to Amy for alerting me to this treasure trove.
And while I was just on the CK site I noticed the promotion for this new book to be released later this month. I may need to get my hands on a copy of that.
Maybe tomorrow I will be back with some of my own photos. My camera battery died this weekend and can't find the recharger! I think I've located the box it was in and hopefully today I will be able to re-juice my battery. And in other good news, I finally found the box of my long-sleeved shirts and sweaters under the Christmas tree in the basement. Progress is a good thing.
