Three years ago when I first started blogging, I was introduced to Cath Kidston. And it was love at first web site. The ultimate in eye candy. Thus began my obsession with oil cloth. And she just happens to carry the most luxurious line of oil cloth on the market, bar none! And now I am not only the proud owner of a piece of Cath Kidston oil cloth... but I actually bought it at the Cath Kidston store in Bath, England! Yes, you read that right. I was in a Cath Kidston store!
So yes, my plan was to bring back a souvenir from Cath Kidston. I was on a mission. And literally shaking as I entered the store. They must have thought I was some crazy American as my camera clicked away. And they would be right. But in my defense, I did ask permission to take these pictures throughout the two-story store. And seriously, I could not get a bad shot! Look at everything! How could I go wrong! Have you ever seen such creative genius in displaying cottage goods in your entire life! Didn't think so.
Be sure to click the pics to behold such loveliness your highness. Sorry, but my British accent kicked in and I got carried away.
There was not a piece of fabric I did not love. But rather than post pics of all the fabulous fabrics, I decided to show you these pillows made from some of those fab fabrics.
Behold the vast rolls of oil cloth above! Aahh... take a moment to enlarge the pic. Mmm, see what I mean? The unrolled oil cloth to the far right was my preferred choice. And as you can see in the pic below, Miranda is carrying it around while she's perusing the 2nd floor. Could she look any cuter amongst all the lovely cuteness!
The final purchased goods... an oil cloth book bag for me (aqua with England attractions- how perfect), a child-size oil cloth book bag for Emolyn and a 1/2 meter of oil cloth that I plan to cover a small table top or shelves with. And a Cath Kidston magazine. I could not stop smiling till we got on the train hours later. And then Randy & Miranda introduced me to Bejeweled on Randy's iTouch and I was hooked. And I'm like, Cath who? I'm fickle that way.
*** Coming soon- Easter Sunday at London Hillsong and Hampton Court Palace!
