[ a happy place ]

THE PERFECT CURE for the winter blues? A trip to the Cath Kidston store! This is one shop that is guaranteed to perk you up - her colourful patterns are so happy and playful - a perfect distraction to less-than-perfect weather!

[all pics by me on my iPhone]

I've picked up a few things on my visits: fabric, tea towels, shoe bags, a tote, a passport cover and I love how her patterns mix so well together. I'm eyeing those spotty plates right about now....

Hi Lisa!

Looks like you are having fun!

I just love Cath's retro spunk!
It's like looking at stuff from my childhood that's been to heaven and back!

Love all the colors and patterns! That store is a definite stop if ever in Ireland to google wonder if she is other places too! Have a great day!

cath is my happy place. love the spotty plates you're thinking need them.

i don't think i could practice any restraint. i'd definitely have to pick up the new cupcake/fairy cake sleeves.

and the little rose cardy for my daughter rosie.

This looks like the perfect retreat for a Saturday morning. Love the style of this shop:)


Very cute! I can't see how you can be unhappy being surrounded by all these pretty flowers and colorfool polka dots!
Happy Thursday evening and Friday :)

I've promised my
girl a trip to
Ireland before she
graduates HS, so
hoping it will be
in the cards by
2013. If we do go
to Dublin, this
shop would most
definitely be on
our radar ~ LOVE it!
Wouldn't it be
fun if we could meet
you for tea, afterwards??

PS: My LISA ROY came
this week and I have
had a zillion compliments
all about town!!
