I'll show you my Cath!!!

Now I don't know what to show you first
my thrifty bargains or
my Cath Kidston purchases.
I do love teasing!!!
Well, you may be disapointed when you see them,
as you will have seen the Cath stuff before, but
let me tell you this...

I have been a fan of CK for years, and you know what?
I have never ever bought ANYTHING of hers!
(bit of a fib, I have some fabric ;-)
I have been in a couple of her shops and
always sniff her out wherever I go.
So really I was one of Cath's rare 'Virgins' these days I reckon!!!
(no comment on that please you little minxes)

So, you have the setting?
The adorable shop in my last post.

lovely pink bag!
Why do things seem even more gorgeous
when you get a lovely bag with them too?

Pink package......
Can you guess what it is yet?

Full marks to all who guessed correctly!

Lovely storage tins.
I didn't realise that they came with labels too!
I think I will use them on something else though,
just to spead the Cath feeling around the kitchen! 

I hope they'll be happy on here!
Anyone notice the tidy corner being used again
for this photo shoot?!

I also got myself this lovely purse.
My old one has a broken button,
so everytime I open my bag to pay for something
all the change is at the bottom of my bag!
Not now, this will be perfect.
I have no money to put in it, I've spent it all!!!

Thanks for letting me share
my Cath Kidston with you.

Coming soon.....
Claire's thrifting purchases!!!
Ha ha, oh it is getting exciting!
No? Oh, OK, it's just me then! LOL

Love Claire. xxx

What lovely things you brought.
I really like the colour of the shelf you put the tins on.
Love your new purse too.
It is always nice having the things you buy wrapped nicely isn't, it makes them feel more special.
Thanks for the offer of a cuppa, I bring the tear n share!

Hi Claire - love your buys - I feel the need to visit the sea and this shop!
Very nice shelf you have the tins on. Look forward to seeing your thrifty bargains - xxx

Hello Claire,
I noticed you wanted to take part in a swap. As I enjoyed doing the flower swap so much I thought I might set one up, although I need to come up with a theme, would you like to take part, we could even organise it together? Any ideas would be welcome.

Thank you Miss C for introducing me to my latest addiction... :-)
I promptly got on Cath's website and ordered a magazine. Lurv the tins. The shelf you have is painted the same color as my wainscotting. Great minds and all no? xx

I've been eyeing up those lovely tins for a while now,but I already have way too many tins! Love that purse too.I was in the paper shop yesterday and opened my purse to pay,and it was empty!I was sure I hadn't spent it all.Turns out all my money was in the bottom of my bag,as the purse zip had broken.I'm hoping to get a little bit of Cath for my birthday next month...if I'm lucky!
