what i'm crushing on right now

i'm so in love with cath kidston. it all started when i ordered Cath Kidston's In Print: Brilliant Ideas for Using Vintage Fabrics in Your Home from amazon
so of course i had to get the catalog for her stuff. and the pictures are so inspiring even in her catalog.
i just adore the cute ironing board and those huge bags...wouldn't they be so sweet for a weekend bag or a beach bag? sigh to live near the ocean again... i love floral prints as much as i love polka dots, so you can only imagine that cath and i would have much to talk about if she were to ever come out to the middle of nowhere and have lunch at the local cafe with me.


most of you know when i say i love something...that means i'm knee deep in "already working on" something ...yes i am loveing all the ideas in my head (does yours run at full speed as well?) and have already started on a few of them. can't wait to show you. perhaps next week.

have a sweet weekend.

man formerly known as GI Joe husband and i will be celebrating our 11 year anniversary this saturday.

i can't believe he's made it that long.

what a good man.

see you monday.

Happy Anniversary to your and your husband!
I love the Cath Kidston's line as well. I am loving that big bag too. We are originally from the East coast and we miss living by the beach as well. Sighing with ya there on that one.

Happy Anniversary - enjoy your day with your man. As I'm looking through the great photos I see that I just dressed my ironing board in almost the SAME print as on the photo. I can't believe I picked something that Cath Kidson would pick (well..almost).

My Cath Kidston catalog is sitting right here and is earmarked on the page with all the dishes. Hilarious! Have a great anniversary.

Happy Anniversary. I love all of those pics, especially the first one with the mugs and bowls...I love cute dishes (not that i have any) but i stare at them in the stores all of the time.

Oh dear don't encourage me. Today while I was at 7-11 buying some milk I caught sight of the new Cath Kidston catalogue. It came with a free tote bag but the whole thing was $13 so I didn't get it ... now you are making me wish I had. Her new things are just gorgeous!! I am crushing with you.

happy 11 years!

Oh I've been so obsessed with Cath Kidston right now!

BTW- Received the basket in record time! I had to schedule in time to get to the post office for a pickup. It's even more bright and fantastic in real life. :)

Happy Anniversary to you and the man formerly known as GI Joe. Hope you enjoy many more...Kathy

Happy Anniversary!!
I can't wait to see what you are working on..you are such an inspiration to us homemakers that don't have much talent for this sort of thing..maybe one day when life settles down a bit! ;)

Dawn said...

Happy anniversary! Looking forward to see what you're working on!! Love your ironing board.

Carolyn said...

Happy anniversary to you! Thanks for introducing me to the beauty that is Cath. I had no idea.

Sandy said...

I always have WAY more projects running around in my head than I have time to work on...and generally about 100 half-finished actual projects going on, too!

Have a great anniversary!

belladella said...

Such awesome inspiration. Those colors and patterns are so yummy. Hope you have a great weekend.

Nanci said...

Please tell me that you actually have those cups and bowls? I just love them. They would be an inspirations for a quilt. Great blog as usual and tell me where I can get those cups? Beautiful!
So springy!

Gayle said...

Another blogger who I read regularly is also a Cath Kidston addict. You really MUST see for yourself!

I adore Cath Kidston. I once even went in a Cath store (squeal!) but was VERY disciplined about not buying anything because with the exchange rate, fabric alone was $40 a yard!! So I stick to the pictures. They make me swoon. Love that you posted some I haven't seen. Yummmm.

KimberlyGanir said...

Beach bag? That's the size I need for my diaper bag these days!! I forgot how much stuff you have to tote around!

And happy anniversary!! Have a good weekend!!

Sachiko said...

Yea!! Welcome to the Cath Kidson world! I've been a big fan of her's for years. She's really big in Japan too. Everytime I get a catalog, I'm so tempted to order things, but it kills me to think about paying so much in shipping.

Her design is so cheerful and fun.

MelMel said...

Just popped over from Posy...saw Cath being mentioned so popped to see what it was all about!
LOVE your blog!xxxx

Katie said...

Happy Aniversary to you and hubby! I love all the pics, wish I was "independantly wealthy"...big sigh..I would have No self control.
