This summer has been kind of go-then-slow for me. I go-go-go and then my body tells me to slow-down in the form of a cold or bronchitis. Today I have been resting but a simple click over to Cath Kidston has my pulse racing over these little pin tins!

Each little tin has the perfect, classic, fairy tale cover.

They're a bit pricey although I think my favorite is the green and at $10. could be rationalized into happening at some point.

Which one is your favorite?


Catching up on blog-visits and hope to pop-over soon!

I love it, and those buttons, she has just such a magic touch for making things we love! I wish there was a store here!

I saw those the other day too over on Cath's website. Very cute!

Oh, these are so delightful. They look like something you might find in your Grandmother's sewing room. Now I have to go over to that web site. You know I didn't even know who Cath Kidston was until you introduced me to her.

Karen said...

Oh how lovely! A friend recently told me about Cath Kidtson and now I LOVE her stuff, too! Anything Shabby Chic makes me happy. =)

I love the green as well. Cath Kidston is a genius. So is 'tinterest.' :-)

Just read your Annette Tatum article last night. That's right, Ms. Published Author! Great work :-)

Hearts Turned said...

Oh, my goodness, Elyse....I guess I just need all three of them! Hope you're feeling better, my body does the same thing when it's time for me to slow down...I think it's almost time again!

Thanks for your sweet visit--feels so good to be back in blogland again! Gosh--wish I'd thought of faux dirt glitter--you're a genius! (tee hee!)

Get some rest tonight & I hope tomorrow is just wonderful for you!


Suz said...

OK, Elyse,
Now I am hooked on that site! I love the pin boxes and about a million other things! Actually, I am grateful to you for reminding me that it exists. Just beautiful things. I love Cath!

Bring Pretty Back said...

The pink one is my fave!
Have a pretty day!

STOP IT! She keeps sending me emails and then I HAVE to go look and then she makes me fill up my cart...but I never order! What do I need a pin cushion shaped like a little house for??? Or a clothes line...I have a dryer for the love of Mike! She's a witch...a witch I tell you! ;}

Sorry to hear that you have been under the weather. Nothing worse than being sick in the summer! To me that is harder than being sick in the winter.
I can't choose--they are all too cute!

lilybets said...

I prefer the blue one,it's gorgeus!

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

I like the green. $10 isn't so bad -- unless they are teeny tiny. Hard to tell from the photos. I think I told you the Cath Kidston here closed down. :/ Boo! have a great day. Tammy

Mrs. Cozy Home said...

Oh...I know...just looking at those photos evokes a strange mixture of happiness and guilt ~ one must live for the sales! :)

Scrap for Joy said...

Always, always listen to your body..when you need a rest, take it. Cath Kidston...I visit her website often but can never make up my mind about what I love most. These pin boxes are so crack me up Elyse!

Theresa said...

My favorite is the pink one! I sure hope you feel better! There are lots of folks sick in blog-land! Take care of yourself dear friend, HUGS!

stefanie said...

Heirloom treasures said...

I can't decide, I love them all. I bet you could make some similar. I hope you are feeling a little better. x

Maaike said...

Hi Elyse, thank you for your sweet comment on creJJtion! Well, just a few more weeks and I will be living in Canada, so no CK-shops for me anymore as well...! But hey, what exciting shops we get in return?! How about Vera Bradley for example? Banana Republic? Looking forward to it soooo much!

Haha, well enjoy your weekend!
Love, Maaike

Pansy Cottage Girl said...
