I always envied other bloggers who blogged about their "Cath Kidston" items.
I loved this designer's fabrics...the flowers, dots and stripes...loaded with colorful roses.
It was a dream of mine to visit one of her stores while in England.
When we arrived in London I googled "Cath Kidston" to see if a store was close to our hotel. Unfortunately one wasn't convenient to stop by without going out of our way. I so wanted to visit one in London but hoped I would run across another one on our travels.
While visiting the town of Chester, England and walking through the streets we walked right by one. I was so excited I told everyone I had to go in.
Hubby was a dream and even made some suggestions on items I could buy as souvenirs.
My only limitation (other then the cost) was space. Everything I purchased had to fit in my suitcase.
So what did I buy?
How about something with a cute embroidery on it?
This is an adorable "peg bag"!
In American terms that's a "clothespin bag".
Finally I can replaced my old clothespin bag.
Hubby suggested the pillowcases.
And I loved the buttons and bought one packet of each displayed.
And I slipped in a pair of tea towels in roses and stripes.
Quite a nice selection if I do say so myself!
As I was taking this photo I realized that my Mother's wooden cane chair has a heart design on the back.
How pretty is that...and why didn't it dawn on me before?
I'll be writing more on our England/Wales/Scotland trip.
So stay tuned.
I'm dying to crochet something...anything!
I missed it so much.
I'm thinking of trying a pin cushion.
I'll have to get busy.
