Cath Kidston Love


Why is it that we are drawn to a certain designer, or a certain look?  Why is it when you walk in some shops, you feel a real connection?  Thats how I felt about Cath Kidston about 10 years ago, when I first saw Cath Kidston in a UK magazine.  I quickly found the online shop, but to ship from the UK to Canada is terribly expensive, not to mention how much duty we would pay on top!  So a couple of years later when my daughter moved to NYC to attend NYU, I was ecstatic!  I would buy online from the US site, and have it shipped to my daughter.  Or, she would just go to the shop and pick out what I wanted.  As you can see from the above photo, its done in 'vintage' Cath Kidston prints.  I love the Pop Flowers curtains, and the 'Birds' oilcloth tablecloth.

However, now I think I've fallen in love with the new pattern called 'Royal Rose'.  IN LOVE, real, achey, yearning love!  You know what I'm talking about!  How can I deny my heart its desire?  When I saw this photo I knew I had to have it!

Doesn't it just make you ache?  My walls are pale green, so I'm pretty sure this will work without changing the paint colours.
While her oilcloth tablecloths are a bit pricey, they are worth every single penny!  They last and last.  Yes, they will stain if you spill tomato sauce on it, so I'm quite careful when my kids eat pasta (I just put paper towel under their plates), but even with the odd stains, it holds up well.
Ok, and if you are going to invest in a new table cloth, you need a new apron or two!  Tea towels are an 'INVESTMENT'!

However, I'm not going to the UK till this summer, so I'll have to order them (from now, cause I don't want anything sold out!) and have them shipped to my sister in laws house!  What do you think?  Lovely, huh?

Then, after redecorating my kitchen I must redecorate myself!!   Look at what else I found and MUST HAVE:
Can a girl have too many broaches?
How about a matching handbag?

I have to start saving up for this trip!
