A Cath Kidston Look in the Porch



                                                                    Hello everyone,
                                We had a touch of spring here today and thankfully there was a
                               fair bit of melting going on outdoors.
                                 Indoors, I made a couple of new pillows with my Cath Kidston
                                 fabric from England to give the porch a spring look.
                                    The little tea set looks like Cath Kidston china......but isn't.
                            I had a plain thermal tea towel so I dressed it up with with some of
                            the leftover fabric and added the pom pom trim.
                                             Both fabric are Cath Kidston that coordinate well.

                                                       Pink tulips add spring cheer.

                                                    Love the polka dots on the tea cup.

                                           A little more spring cheer on the table in the porch.
           

                            The ivy in the window will soon grow to cover the
                                       heart shape wire ( made from an old coat hanger).

                                                                    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

                                                                                                              Carolyn

I love Cath Kidston's beautiful fabrics. They look so pretty in your porch. The last photo is so pretty with the green rabbit and the flowers. I hope you get through this next storm safely. Spring weather isn't far away now.

I love your new pillows--I love Cath Kidston. The fabric is so hard to get here in the US. It is such a happy fabric! Enjoyed your post.

Love your pillows! I was just out shopping today for a couple of pillows and I always have the hardest time finding what I want. Hubby said I should just make my own. I'm going to show him yours!

Olá Carolyn,

Adorei as almofadas, está se tornando uma ótima costureira. Os tecidos são lindos e tenho certeza fará parte de vários cenários na primavera. Estou ansiosa na espera.

Boa viagem, aproveite bastante.

Carolyn, I just love Cath Kidston's beautiful fabrics and your pillows turned out just beautiful! Your porch looks just so charming and delightful and so springy!

Janet said...

Gorgeous Carolyn ...You have inspired me to make some new pillows for my Spring decor out of lovely vintage sheets I have bought at the thrift store ...

Going to start this week on turning my guest room in to a lovely Shabby Chic room ...been collecting items from months ..can't wait to see how it turns out

Thanks for all your inspiration ..and the few minutes a day I take reading your blog with a cup of tea in a beautiful teacup and sometimes a butter wedding cookie ..

Here comes Spring kindest regards Janet of Maisonvogue on Etsy.com

Ooh that is so pretty, I don't think I have seen Kath Kidston's range in NZ although I am sure it is here. Very lovely combination of colours.

I do hope your snowy weather has settled and you are more heading towards spring.

Hello Carolyn,
I love the romantic look and the colors. Cath Kidston designs so nice fabrics.
It looks a little bit like some at grandmothers time (good old time).
I'm owner of some of their beautiful sewing books.
I love them so much.
Your arrangemt with the china is
perfect.

Just beautiful, Carolyn! I thought I'd gotten tired of Cath Kidston but you made me fall in love all over again. J

dizzyizzy said...

Carolyn, your pillows are simply lovely. I love the pea service that you used. I could sit and read my Pennyfoot Hotel or Tea Shop mysteries for hours. Although, my porch is not nearly as beautiful as your sun room, I think that I'll go out now and enjoy a great book before our next storm arrives later today.
Thanks, as always for sharing your beautiful home.

Bella said...

Hi Carolyn,
Your porch is wonderful, so cheerful and Spring has arrived inside if not out!!! Glad to hear of the melting...
Hugs,
Bella

I love the bunny. Did you make him?

Everything is beautiful.

Carolyn said...

Hi Carla,
No, I didn't make the bunny.

Thank you all for your visit and lovely comments.

Take care,
Carolyn

Stunning pics of your lovely Cath Kidston covered cushions Carolyn. Truly beautiful room. Love your rabbit. What is it made of? Shirley N.Z.

So pretty!!! I love your new pillows. Cath Kidston is wonderful. I was at two of her shops when I was in London. Only wish she was still in the States.

What a gorgeous and cozy spot Carolyn. I can see myself spending an afternoon reading and enjoying a cup of tea in this beautiful space. My goodness Carolyn, you and I have very similar taste. I have that same pretty blue floral fabric, tea pot and sugar/cream holders. It is scary.

Have a wonderful week.

Janet

Carolyn, your pillows and tea towel are so pretty! And I love your rabbit; first one like it that I've seen. Blessings, Bess

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Such a pretty post, Carolyn. Love the fabrics with your pretty tea set. I like poms poms too. The bunny is adorable and the ivy growing around the heart shaped wire wreath is lovely!
Are you ready for yet another snow storm? Wonder when this winter weather is coming to an end. Stay cozy!

Blessings,
Sandi

Kathryn said...

So colorful and pretty!

Madelief said...

The pillows you made look beautiful Carolyn! I will be going to England in April. Hopefully I will find some beautiful fabric too.

Wishing you and Andrew a lovely time in Florida!

Enjoy the sun!

Garden decor has extended to patio decor and in that realm I am very comfortable. I enjoy the look of cast iron or bronze chairs and tables. It feels like the garden is a free place to put all of my metal furniture.

I'm a relatively new reader of your blog and I've noticed that some of the pictures in older posts are no longer available--mostly in summer posts, I think? Is this intentional or just an online quirk?

Laura said...

Beautiful vignette! If you don't mind, who it the maker of that tea cup and saucer?
