the problem

 The first step, is admitting you have a problem. I do, and I accept it. It's a certain English shop luring me with its addictively sweet home goods. They run an 'end of summer' sale every year. Tempting, oh so tempting. Wait, practice patience.

The new fall items, will be twice as cute. Maybe even three or four times...

You'll wonder why you didn't wait.

This year, I didn't fall for it. I held out. Lots of things I loved sold out. It wasn't meant to be. My girls questioned my resolve. Biding my time, paid off. A few sale items remained, and much of the new line debuted. The day after I placed the order, all the sale items disappeared...poof.

 Cath Kidston, you've out-done yourself, once again. 



I'm joining the fun at the following:

Too too cute. I completely understand the addiction. You have my sympathy (smile).

Kat said...

Cuteness! Cath Kidston is perfection. I saw some mugs when I was home in Halifax and I thought of you!

Aren't her things beautiful? I love all of it. It sounds like your timing was perfect!

K @ Aurora Blythe said...

I, too, share the love. Good for you for holding out for some good deals, though! ;-)

Everlasting Blooms said...

I can see why you are addicted..these are adorable! :)

Stacey@A Sort Of Fairytale said...

well, i have the exact same problem, you know i do!
i almost bought many of the sale items, but then I thought, no just wait for the fall line...just like you!
i am regretting a bit, not getting a certain bad on sale, but i am loving the fall patterns on the bags, so maybe it was meant to be that i did't get the bag after all. hmmm, i really need to put an order in, i think!

And how can any one resist that?

ivana said...

Hm, serious problem. And CK isn't helping- just when I think things can't get more beautiful, they get better and better. It looks like a epidemic ;))

Theophanie said...

Yikes! If I lived near those things I would be bankrupt!

Jill said...

How funny, I just posted about my Cath Kidston order today also! I understand your addiction. Her stuff calls like a siren. I've been eyeing those book tins *love* and there's a sewing basket that I seriously obsess over. Seriously.

Hugs,
Jill

Mrs. Cozy Home said...

Oh gracious, do I know... I was *this* close to buying that sewing basket, it can be used for so much!

Have you seen the tartan purses in the new collection? TDF!

Ooh, cute! I think I'll have to order by phone next time, I tried just one more time to place an order over the internet, it didn't go through and I lost out.

Mogi`s Cottage said...

Hi, I love the things from C.K. also very much. I visited a store in Great Britain two years ago. Oh, it was great. I did not know where to look first. I bought some candles and wonderful stickers and I did not use the candles till now. It is silly, isn`t it?
Love Tina

I'm so relieved Cath Kidston is so difficult to find Stateside because I'm afraid I'd want to buy it ALL otherwise! *winks*
