A little bit of Cath...

If like me you like Cath Kidston just for the kitschy chintzy patterns and style, then you might want to get your hands on one of these:


£4 from Primark. It's a good size and is ideal for my mountain of makeup.

Just after I bought this I found a stall in the MetroCentre selling handbags and found this shopper for £10 so I snaffled that up too. I'm not a label snob, and couldn't care that it's not Cath it's Cath esqe which is close enough for me I just love the patterns.

I have been meaning to show you these lovely gifts I recieved recently, this is a handmade key ring from my bestest friend who is a rather talented jewellery maker in her spare time;

She also made me this, not sure what it's called but it's to help me to stop putting my glasses down and losing them on an hourly basis.
I really love this, I wear glasses at work when using horrible spreadsheets all day and I am forever losing them, quite often finding them in my hair! Now I won't; I feel like a librarian in these and will certinaly give off an air of superiority at work; my work glasses are at work but I have modelled them using my sunglasses;



Fab or what, thanks again Nic xx

I also got a knitting mag from our own sexy Annie this week with the most fabulous postcard;


I found this pattern inside that I have to make, I have a cushion habit at the moment and it jumped out at me.

Thanks gorgeous!

I'm almost finished a crochet cushion that I have been on ages with I'll post it soon, but for now here is a snippet:

Happy colours to cheer me up!

OOoh yes, loving the make-up bag from Primark. Brilliant bargain. Looking forward to seeing your crocheted cushion in all its glory - those colours look gorgeous and the stitching look so neat and tidy - I can only dream about being neat and tidy.

The crack whore pcture brought a smile to my face - some lovely gifts there. Think I might just have to pop into the metro centre after work one night and have a peek in primarni - I'm with you on the label thing, don't care if it means I can get something similar for a lot less. xxx

Love the card and the make up bag. I could do with one of those for my specs - I am forever losing them - sometimes they are actually on my nose but I still hunt for them!!

Handmade and Vintage said...

How is it that no matter how many pairs of glasses I own, eventually they all end up in the same room - and I can't find any of them! Very good CK alike finds and a brilliant postcard. I really love the crochet cushion , did it take ages to make?

qwiksave said...

You are very good at hunting out the good stuff Kandi. Liked your charity shop post too, I love a good nose at what people buy! ;-) xx

Alex said...

Bwahaha, the crack whore picture is excellent!

Don't you look gorgeous in the glasses photos? I never dare do closeups of my face!

Annie xx TheFeltFairy said...

Glad you liked it you crack whore!!!! Those CK style bags are bloody gorgeous, and a much more attractive price too!

You look pretty sexy your self in those shades! What a looker!

I'm really in need of something to dangle my specs from, I'm forever loosing them and driving everyone insane.
