I Love Cath Kidston and Happy Loves Rosie

I Love Cath Kidston and Happy Loves Rosie.  

Ever since I started my blog, you all have known that I love Cath kidston ! We have history! Oh yes! but without boring you with the details! I have added here a few of my favourite Cath Kidston bits and pieces.

I still love her wallpaper, we used to have it in our bathrooms when we lived on the Island, and I think soon, I will have to add some to our cottage.

Years ago when we first started buying this kinda style…it was just before ‘Ole Cath’ started her little shop off the Kings Road, it was easy to find our kind of treasures, as no-one else was really into ‘The Look’ and our friends would often tell us that our house looked just like their Granny’s House….
To which we loved the though of! but to them it was all old fashioned…..those then prefering black furniture and black and white commercial prints.

…and I remember about 8 years ago now having a little boutique on our local High Street, selling re-cyled and up-cycled clothing and as a trial we started to sell Cath Kidston bits and pieces and as no-one had heard of her, her lovely collections used to just sit idle in our shop…amazing isnt it! I suppose you could say we were ahead of our time!

Now times have changed, and I don’t get out as much as I used too…

So I am finding new ways of occupying my time, making things that I would like to buy myself for my one day to open shop!….Just like the things Cath Kidston used to sell when she first started out….vintage bits and handmade items…with lots of Happy Loves Rosie ‘ ness thrown in to the mix!

Do you still hanker for Cath kidston Prints…it’s just not the same anymore is it, especially now it is in Next!

Bye for now,

    Like you I love all things Cath Kidston and her stuff regularly features in both my blogs. I'm a huge fan of her wallet range and I'm hoping Santa brings me a new one for Xmas.

    I've been a Cath fan for many years. When I bought my cottage 11 years ago I visited her first store in Claredon Cross, West London to buy some rose patterned wallpaper. CK herself was in there and I told her I had bought my cottage just so I could use her wallpaper. I think she thought I was some mad groupie woman!Louise x

    Oh dear Happy, you seem to have upset one of the window lickers!! have followed your blog for ages and you are not delusional you are INSPIRATIONAL! I expect the polyester princess who commented was at a loose end as the next sale is no longer on. I have it on good authority that Miss Kidston is aware of your blog as her stylists have mentioned you in passing, more than once!I expect she thinks the TESCO Cath kidstom £2.99 bag that she owns is her right to comment. Some people set the trends and some never get it quite right, no matter how many times they visit Matalan! Enjoy your weekend i hope you find lots of fab finds as you always do. Regards a loyal reader xx

    Could you love yourself any more? You didnt invent this style and you need to stop your delusional comparison between yourself and Cath Kidston

    I too am a Cath fan and have been buying her stuff for many years.However,I think since she sold her business the essence of Cath is not so evident.I love going into the York shop but I invariably come away emptyhanded and it is her one off vintage finds that I love the most and I love many of her older fabrics. I love your look which is a Happy/Cath mix with an identity of its own.I reckon the best colour palette has to be red duck egg blue and white.Love your cards.I have a shop and we sell abacus cards so imagine how delighted I was to find your cards in their new range.Gorgeous,gorgeous you must be so happy,Happy!
