New Cath K Catalogue!

Afternoon folks. Was very chuffed yesterday when the latest Cath Kidston catalogue popped through my door, had to grab myself a cuppa and have a good read through, especially as I had some Christmas money burning a hole in my pocket. Look at this kitchen, I love it, sadly my kitchen is about 27 years old and very tatty, but I can keep dreaming one day I'll have a kitchen like this.

I love this gypsy caravan sewing box, I have a bit of a weak spot for caravans :o) But it's a bit pricey so can't see me owning one unless it's in the sale in the future.

This pretty flower shaker jumped off the page at me, so it did end up in my online basket, I already have the spray flowers one but couldn't resist. Better get baking.

Loved these tins too, so better get saving.

This new cut roses fabric is the prettiest I've seen in a while so I ordered a small tablecloth to update my dining table. I'll post a pic when it arrives.

Another naughty purchase this Provence rose jug :o)

and this mug! :o)

These tins were half price in the sale so also jumped in my basket.

So I did buy a few pieces but as it was Christmas money don't feel too guilty. :o) There were a couple of other pieces I fell in love with in the catalogue the rose square cake tins and Provence rose placement dessert plates but don't seem to be available online yet, so will just have to wait for them, good thing too, I'm all spent out.

I don't know about you but thank crunchie it's Friday, it seems to have been a long week. The dark mornings aren't helping it's like getting up in the middle of the night, roll on the spring.  I should feel better later as I'll be having a Chinese and a few glasses of wine over a friends, to celebrate our friends birthday, a  good old gossip will be had I think.

Have a great weekend folks

I WON......

Hi folks, hope every one's doing OK, and the weather and general January blues aren't getting you down. I was cheered up no end this week, when I had an e-mail from Sian at Diary of a Tinyholder to say I'd won 2nd prize in her raffle. This gorgeous CK bowling bag is winging it's way off to me, and I can't wait until it arrives isn't it gorgeous.

Sian is currently trying really hard to raise money for a charity very close to her heart the alzheimer's      society. She has just launched another raffle on her blog with some gorgeous CK stuff up for grabs. scroll down to take a peek. 

Such lovely stuff, I just  love that Provence rose design.

look at this cute little character.

and always very useful and pretty to boot, these key rings. Please show your support by popping over to Sian's blog to purchase a raffle ticket to be in with a chance of winning these goodies.

Back in October I was also lucky enough to win this book from Louise at Sew Scrumptious. It's a lovely big book with so much information in, I'm hoping it can teach me to knit and crochet as I'm completely hopeless. I feel so lucky to have won these, as I usually never with anything, I really hope 2011 will be my lucky year.

Happy New Year

Hello my lovelies, Just wanted to wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

Already taken decs down as glad to see the back of 2010.  And I'm embarking on some serious money saving tactics and decluttering for 2011. I've joined the money saving expert forum for advice and encouragement and I'm addicted to it already.

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year. I'll be back in a couple of days with the 200 follower giveaway I promised.
