How Did I Not Know...or have I been living under a rock?

I recently discovered something that apparently a great deal of you already knew about. Something wonderful and, although in England, seems to be very popular everywhere.

I have, for years now, been a huge fan of Rachel Ashwell and her shabby chic look. For years I would check out her books from the library over and over, dreaming of having that look in my home (to which my husband turned his nose up at). I have tried to pair my love for her style with my love of bright colors. I love the vintage look, the femininity of the flowers but have seemed to get stuck with my love for color.

Well, here she is. Cath Kidston. I mean, really! Where have you been all my life?

I think her items speak for themselves and while I can't show you everything I love (it would crash blogger!) I'll leave you with my favorites and her website. If you are like me and were clueless up until now, I'm glad to have enlighted a little. If you have known about her all along, please don't judge...I'm trying! :-)

If only I had known when I was in London! Oh the shopping I could have done!


  1. I did not know about her, but WOW! I love bright colors, too. What a great mix she does.

  2. Maybe it's a good thing you didn't know about her while in London. Your checkbook might have gotten the workout!
