Cath Kidston

Happy Monday girls! I sure have missed you! We're going to try to have a liiiiitle bit more of a schedule this week so I'm going to try posting!
I ordered a free Cath Kidston catalog and I love to look through it! I hope you enjoy these pages that I chose to share with you! So many CUTE dishes with Roses and dots!

I love all the strawberry stuff, too!

Check out this tent!!!!

They have all sorts of cute things- even clothes!


I never tire of looking through this catalog!

Catch up time!
My visit with our out of town company from SD. was interesting. I came down with some sort of sickness and "Aunt Flo" came to visit as well! I wasn't able to clean and prepare like I would have enjoyed but with the 2 physical disabilities , I was kept numb enough to not be nervous about anything!
I've been having fun crafting! I finished my 5x5 block for Elizabeth's block party. I'll try to get good pictures of it today.
My pocket book has been on a diet so I haven't been thrifting as much as I'd like but I have allowed myself to spend just a liiiiiiittle bit at the GW every week. I'll try getting a post up about that this week, too.
We have no idea when Bobby goes back to work. Dealing with Workman's Comp is NOT a fast process. Bobby's shoulder is much better but he still doesn't sleep many hours at a time which has him sleeping in odd shifts around the clock. The guys generally stay up reeeeally late and I get up reeeeally early so in that way, I have a bit of quiet and alone time. I can't tell you how many movies we've watched since Bobby's been home and I think I'm all movied out!!
Do you wonder why I put those ********** after my paragraphs? Sometimes it's the only way blogger will format a paragraph so I just started adding them every time.
Have a great day girlfriends! Thanks for coming by! ♥

Hey there - thanks for stopping by and commenting on my boys...I saw your guys and they are huge - how many kids do you have exactly? I have 4 of my own and 1 step son so five total...ugh...

anyway glad to see you will be posting more.

talk soon...

Holly said...

Hi, Tina! ♥ I have four boys.

Queenie said...

Hey Holly!
I am glad you are back...I so enjoyed browsing the catalog with you...it's gorgeous, and I think I could dream all day in that thing! LOL! I am glad your weekend went well with your weekend guests. By the way... I know what you mean about blogger not allowing seperations in between paragraghs. I would love to have spaces in between paragraphs too, but I have never been able to figure out how to do it...I like your idea of seperating them! I hope Bobby will continue to improve. I hope you have a great day!
Big Hugs,

Oh Hi Holly,
My computer finally got to this page as soon as I emailed you on how slow it was going today.

So sorry to hear about your hubby. That is my worst nightmare as we are a one income family and I don't think my hubby would get workmans comp so I pray a lot!! LOL

I didn't know about the Glidden paint either. How did that all work? Fun times!!

Have a wonderful day!

LBP said...

I didn't know there was a catalog! I bought some of her label from Amazon and love them!

Off to see if I can get my own Cath Kidston catalog!



Tammy said...

I was so unaware of who Cath Kidston was that I ordered her book from the library recently. Love her stuff...wouldn't you love to own a whole houseful!?

Hope everything settles down for you and that you have a wonderful day ahead!☼

*Noelle* said...

Darn Aunt FLO!!! I use that same term too:) LOL

I have SO missed your posting! What a fun one to give us today:) My mom loves Cath Kidson and I had never heard of her till recently! OMG< her stuff is SOOOOOO cute:) I love those polka bowls...heck, everything you showed! And that cute girly kite!! If I had a daughter, she would have that kite!!

Can't wait to see your BLOCK!!

I replied to the question you asked about my EYEBROWS!! lol Its under the comments section on that post; I replied like how you reply to us!!!

Big hugs!!

GUESS WHAT?? I found another one of your CUTE little BOWLS today at GW; it cost me $0.30!!! I wish everything was that cheap!!! I need to get more bubble wrap for mailing and I'll send it off soon!!

Noelle ♥

Ulrika said...

So good to see a post from you again! Looks like a wonderful catalog. I used to have a strawberry tray very much like the one in the catalog but it broke. :-(
I have strawberry melamine plates and cups though that I like very much.
Have a great week! I'll e-mail you one of these days - we're still trying to figure out where we'll move....
Love, Rika

Vicki said...

Hello, Holly,
I love everything Cath Kidston makes. I am going to see if I can't get a free catalog. I loved looking at all of her beautiful things. I am glad your husband's shoulder is better. Hope you have a good week. Vicki

Shabby Kim said...

Hi Holly... My day is so much better now that you've given us a new post to read. Sure did miss you last week.

I'm just drooling over that Cath Kidston catalog. I may just have to order one of those myself to Oooh and Ahhh over. Sure wish she had stores here in the USA, but even if she did, they would probably be just like the Shabby Chic stores were which was way too expensive for someone living on my budget. It's still fun to dream though.

Hope you are feeling better. Take care and I'll be back soon!!

I don't think I have heard of that catalog. It does have some cute stuff.

Scrap for Joy said...

Hi Holly!
What a charming blog you have! I love your header and background, so cheery! I, too, am a lover of Kath's things. If the shipping weren't so expensive from England, I'm sure I'd be tempted to order from her. I love anything with polka dots.
Elizabeth's block swap was a lot of fun and making just one block was easy. I loved the one I received from her!
Thanks for visiting~I'll be back to see you again

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I would love to have one of the catalogs! I think I will google her name and see if I can find one! I love your updates! So much fun! Hi Tina and Holly...I have four boys, too! lol

Hi Holly!
Thanks so much for the post. I just signed up for a Cath Kidston catalog. I can't wait to flip through each page over and over.

Twyla and Lindsey said...

Holly, I came back! I don't want you to go without a comment from me! I don't know what happened, but I am having trouble with the old blogger today. I've tried to follow a couple of people and it refuses to go to the page. Anyway, I love Cath Kidston. Lindsey said she ordered us that catalogue quite awhile ago and we still haven't gotten it. I just love her stuff! I hope you are feeling better now. You have one of the cutest sidebars. I just love looking down and seeing all those cute images! Have a good night! Twyla

Lisa said...

Wow! You are busy! I love the pages you picked! I messed up my summer order for a cataloge so I hope to get the fall one I ordered a few days ago! Hope you have a super week!!
Hugs, Lisa

Lori said...

Hi Holly
Oh you tease, I adore Cath and have been waiting what seems forever for my catalog! Just to let you know this long term disability we're dealing with has been a nightmare! Soon,Lori

Katie said...

Oh I think I will have to order one for myself glimpses on your blog aren't enough!

Sorry to hear worker's comp is a hassle but also sorry to say I'm not surprised. Isn't that kind of thing always annoying?

BTW, you've probably tried this but when I am having trouble getting paragraphs to work properly you can go in and hand add them in HTML.

Elyse said...

hi holly,

sounds like lots going on but isn't the cath kidston catalog awesome? it's like a magazine!!!


Sweetina said...

The Cath Kidson catalog is mouthwatering! Don't you just want everything?! I need to get me a copy!
Glad hubby's shoulder is on the mend.

You have a great week..hope your hubby gets better soon!


KarenB said...

Oh My! A Cath Kidson catalog??????? I love her look. I've got probably all of her books. I think. I'll have to order a catalog for myself! Thanks for stopping by for a visit on Elderberry Street!
