Hi girls, as soon as I got to York on Saturday I headed up to Stonegate to the Cath Kidston shop,
where the window was full of lovely things and as I stepped inside I asked the young , very lovely assistant if I could take a couple of piccies.
I took a seat and asked for tea and cakes but nobody took my order hehe
The shop looks small from the front but it goes back 3 rooms and at the back it's an L shape so its a big shop realy. Now to show you what I bought......
Can you see through the bag???
First in the basket was the sewing tin that had some reels of cotton and needles inside, it matches the buttons tin and needlecase that I got for Christmas, then there was the pins tin, tape measure and scissors, the roses on the tin remind me of a painted barge, and I do love red and white spots.
Next were a pack of spotty candles for my new glass candlesticks, two packs of napkins, and a hologram card.
You know when you buy something but it's too nice to use? well as there were 6 candles I lit 2, and I've still got 4 left to keep (same with the napkins I won't be letting anyone use them!!!)
Then I spotted some notepaper, envelopes and stickers (not that I'll use it !) that I could write to my friend in Canada on as she always has such nice writing paper and stickers.
In the home dept I asked the assistant if I could have some fabric samples and she gave me 7 which were all lovely and of a decent size, I saw some pegs and a washing line for £5,and I thought with some stars stuck on the pegs I could use them on my pegboard.
Fortunetly for me, Mr Lucey likes shopping but after 40 mins I had a final look round and made my way to the till
and on the counter were some hankies, now I always use a proper cotton hankie (vintage if possible) and this one is sooo pretty with strawberries on so that went in the basket aswell.
When I had a look at it it's far too nice to be wiping noses on or even sticky fingers at a picnic, so I might make it into a cushion cover or a cloth for a little table in Sweetpea Cottage, what do you think??
The fabric samples are under the buttons tin arn't they pretty? On the way home we called at Tesco and I saw these two cake tins for £4.50 and they match in with the buttons tin so I got them and then spent a couple of hours on Sunday putting all my sewing paraphernalia in all the tins, how organised am I eh?
Well that's my stash from CK, I'll tell you about my presents and the other things I bought next time.
Bye for now
Who would have thought...jellies and birds....
