Prettifying the mundane
January 30, 2013 § 7 Comments
I realise that only yesterday I promised myself I’d stop wasting time on the internet when I was supposed to be working, but can I just share something with you first?
You might have noticed from the button in the right hand column that Cath Kidston has joined Bonlook in supporting this blog. I’m not a big fan of very girly things or twee patterns, with the exception of this brand. I cannot even remember when I first came across Cath Kidston but I do remember that it was love at first sight. There’s something so nostalgic and yet modern about the whole brand. I am very lucky to have a sister who pays attention to my rants and has slowly been building my collection of everyday objects covered in Kidston’s famous floral patterns. It might sound silly but drying the dishes with one of her dishcloths makes the task that much more enjoyable.
That’s not to say that I haven’t been secretly compiling a wishlist of items I plan on buying. Most of the items I’ve listed are for the girls (Maia is an even bigger fan of the brand!), but there are some others I wouldn’t mind having for myself.
You have to admit I’d probably be a hundred times more productive with these pretties, right?
