Cath Came Calling

And I answered the door! Actually, my best and lovely friend, Clara, found this shortly before Christmas and snapped it up for me. How lovely is it for Cath Kidston to be here, in Canada! Even if it is just bubbly goodness, it is beautiful.

Well this picture is rubbish. So sorry but you know my camera woes. The Cabbages and Roses book I got myself back on my birthday and there are a few others there Santa was sweet enough to bring me, I will try and get a better picture of them again for you. Oh, and the charming Johnson Brothers teacup and saucer from DN3 picked up at a bazaar for me for Christmas. Love.

And said daughter asked as I was taking the pictures if I ever took a picture of her room. Yes, I have, many moons ago but here is another. The cutest sleeping bag and pillowslip with the most adorable rosebud pattern. Santa was sweet to her as well.

Another tea and biscuit dvd. All Creatures Great and Small. The first series with the original Helen. There was something about her I just loved...

On the "something's gotta give" subject: note to self, do NOT purchase one more pillowslip. Ever. (There are a total of 15 pillows on all our beds right now? Get the picture?) Did you say addiction?

And finally, a wee bit of knitting for the wee bairn soon to grace this lovely world. The bib pattern from the Mason-Dixon Knitting book.

Hi Lisa, your pictures are lovely. I spy Rosali bedding (and I'm very jealous!). Your best friend sounds like a treasure.

Glad Cath got to you!! ;-)

Some addictions are good! Pillow ones especially.

Glad you got some Cath.

Lucky you with your Cath goodies - will try and get your parcel off today !!

Hopefully might get chance to fit some thrifting in today and going to supermarket that has Cath eco bags !!! Fingers crossed.

What lovely goodies to receive. All Creatures Great and Small was such a fun programme - used to catch it every week when it first came out.

Love all the pillowcases. I have that addiction myself! Also loved All Creatures Great and Small. Just reading a book by the original Helen(Carol Drinkwater)about her buying an olive farm in the south of France. Lovely to read on these cold and dark winter nights. Lovely Cath goodies by the way.

I have a bit of a pillow/bedding addiction too! Love your bedside table - so pretty.

A wee bairn soon to grace this world? How lovely!

Oh I loved the first Helen, too. I think the actress has written a book about her life on a farm in France??? Could be mistaken. Anyway, you're so right...that Helen was perfect. The other one just doesn't seem right...more like Jim's mother than his wife.

Enjoy your gift!

All this pink prettiness...makes my heart swoon. Lovely, lovely post, Lisa.

Lucky you, the CK box of goodies looks great. Enjoyed your pictures, very pretty. There's nothing wrong with a pillowcase addiction, especially if they're as pretty as yours!
Take care.

Glad to have discovered your gorgeous blog! I too collect old vintage English china, although I prefer pink roses to the classic white and blue. Cath Kidson treasures look yummy! Not sure how readily available they would be in Australia.

i love your little treasures, so beautiful..

Lucy Bloom said...

Every home should have a little bit of 'Cath' - glad you got some. As for pillowcases, they don't take up much room - pretty harmless addiction if you ask me ;-)

you are so sweet, thanks for the lovely comment. I see we have a similar obsession (pillowcases). I too have vowed not to buy anymore but I doubt that will last. I think lots of vintage loving girls have a thing about pillow and cases. They are just a great way to display pretty fabrics! I love the knitted bib, what a lovely idea!

PrincessPea said...

What beautiful photos! I have a bit of an addiction to antique linen sheets and pillowcases, especially if they have crochet lace edgings. But there really are only so many one bed needs...
