Memorial Day is the kick off of summer. Now is the time to dust off your white shoes and dine al fresco. Cath Kidston is one designer who delights me with colorful glories for the season.
Isn’t this a charming picnic basket? I see that there is even a spot to store the fried chicken.
Perhaps you’ll need a few cushions to scatter about for soft seating.
What a stylish way to keep the lemonade cool.
Lounging by the pool has never looked so sweet.
Happy star towels to dry off with.
I love the smell of sheets that are line dried. This peg bag makes the job of locating a clothespin not quite such a chore.
The bird print melamine plate just sings summer.
Happy cutlery in a garden palette.
Enjoy summer evenings with a pretty lantern.
This strawberry patterned china brings the outdoors in. Perfect for places like Phoenix where entertaining is relegated to the indoors.
Fabulous fashionista’s would look fetching in this floral frock.
A cute skirt made for rounding up the kiddos on summer break.
Now for the best part of the post, a Cath Kidston giveaway.
Last week I found “Vintage Style” at a second hand shop. Although the cover is a bit worn the book inside is just perfect. It is accompanied by a new “Dream Home Journal”. As a designer I often recommend that clients start a journal of their favorite magazine photo’s and article ideas. This organizer fits the bill perfectly. Of course I always send little extras in all my giveaways and this one is no exception. Leave me a comment on your summertime favorites and a random entry will be selected to win on Wednesday, May the 28th. As for the time I never know the time of when I will be able to blog~kids~ I am sure that explains it all. So get it in by Wednesday morning to be safe.
Congratulations to the lovely Lidy at French Garden House. Please email me your information and I will ship your goodies out “toot sweet”.
