Pressed Glass Kitchen Accessories from Cath Kidston, $10-26: I drooled over Kidston’s quintessentially British, floral-y designs at chic boutiques in Paris, but lack of luggage space limited my buying, so I was thrilled to see she has just launched a U.S. catalog. These pressed glass pieces are functional and pretty, with a vintage charm.
Cath Kidston Gardening Accessories: You don’t have to be a gardener to appreciate these pretty pieces in a Kidston’s Candy Flowers print, but it doesn’t hurt. The garden basket, $34, can be used virtually anywhere, for anything, and I am thinking of using the matching garden kneeler, $40, next to my girls bathtub to make their bathtime more comfortable for mommy!
