We do it for love ...

... but its nice when you do make a little cash!

Which is why I was delighted to read this article that tells of Cath Kidston and her rise, not from rags to riches, but from shabby chic to riches. A real inspiration.

In homage to the Queen of vintage style, I picked up my camera and went on a CK spotting expedition around my home:

gifts and cards you'll want to send and give.

I was lucky enough to see some of your house in November when I picked up some cards from you. I loved your combination of CK things mixed in with some vintage furniture. You have a lovely house.

CK is one of the only high street shops that I like. I love her fabrics, designs and colours. She definitely captured a gap in the market and made it work.

Have a lovely weekend
Warm wishes
